[ANNOUNCE] wayland 1.15.0

Wayland 1.15.0 is now out.

Some highlights:
Compositor writers take note - wl_subcompositor.get_subsurface is now
documented to be double buffered.  It wasn't clearly specified to be so
before (this change should be non breaking in practice and merely remove
the opportunity for a render glitch in the compositor.)

New API, wl_display_destroy_clients() has been added to help some
compositors clean up clients before destroying their display.

wayland-scanner can now generate either public or private symbols, and
the old command line option "code" will emit a warning. It also has a
new --strict option to immediately exit on DTD validation failure.

libwayland-egl is now part of libwayland, and will presumably be removed
from mesa in the not too distant future.

The WAYLAND_DISPLAY environment variable can now contain absolute paths
(where previously it was prefixed by XDG_RUNTIME_DIR) - anything that
reads WAYLAND_DISPLAY outside of libwayland will have to deal with that
change independently.
