wayland-protocols 1.8 has been available for some time wayland-protocols 1.9 is
now available.

Version 1.8 bumped the linux dmabuf protocol version, introducing a new request
for creating a buffer from a dmabuf without having to wait for an event, as
well as an event advertising supported fourcc modifiers along with the
supported formats.

A pkg-config file meant for when wayland-protocols is used as a git
submodule (or otherwise not installed) was added.

Various grammar fixes and clarifications were also included in this release.

Version 1.9 introduced two new unstable protocols:

 - Keyboard shortcut inhibitation - a protocol meant for making it possible for
   virtual machine viewers, remote desktop clients etc, to be able to forward
   keyboard combinations such as Alt-Tab etc.
 - Xwayland keyboard grabbing - a protocol specifically targeted at enabling
   Xwayland to implement keyboard grabs.

See the corresponding XML files for details.
