I just pushed a set of changes which split out most extensions into
their own libraries. (bigreq and xc_misc stay in libXCB, because it
uses them internally.) That will allow extensions to change without
affecting the libXCB API or ABI.
I updated the Debian packaging to work with the Debian X11R7 release,
and to transition from /usr/X11R6 to /usr. I also changed debian/rules
to stop running autoreconf; you now need to build packages from a
Finally, I fixed a few issues with the creation of distribution
tarballs, and building software with them.
* Split the Debian packages by library, which requires some
debian/control stanzas and debian/libxcb*.install files. I plan to
script the generation of these files to make it easy to add more
extensions in the future; note, though, that such generation cannot
happen automatically as part of the build, since the build process must
not modify debian/control. Also note that some of the -dev packages
need to Depend on other -dev packages due to the use of <import> in the
* Add a pkg-config file for each library. These also need dependencies.
I plan to autogenerate these as well.
* Set a non-zero library version. Jamey, can we officially declare the
* make distcheck and release version 0.9 as a "preview release".
* Upload packages to Debian, either experimental or unstable.
* Build Xlib/XCB packages for Debian experimental (not unstable, since
they won't come from a released Xlib).
