[Xcb] Problems with latest XCB in Ubuntu 11.10

I have upgraded to Ubuntu 11.10 and can no longer compile our 
application because of some large changes that seem to have taken place 
in the XCB library.

The main problem is that xcb_atom_get and xcb_atom_get_name no longer 
exist. I'm not sure what I should use to replace these functions. Also I 
can't find the xcb_property_handler functions anywhere. These seem to 
have vanished (eg xcb_property_handlers_init).

I guess these functions have been replaced by some others but am unable 
to find which. Any help greatly appreciated!
