Welcome to X.Org X Server 1.4, now with hotplugging input to go with the
hotplugging output.  Also included in this release are many performance
and correctness fixes to the EXA acceleration architecture, support for
DTrace profiling of the X Server, accelerated
GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap with supporting DRI drivers, and many
improvements to the RandR 1.2 support that was added in xorg-server-1.3.

The X Server now relies on the pixman library, which replaces the
fb/fbcompose.c and accelerated implementations that were previously
shared through code-duplication with the cairo project.

Changes since (RC2):
Adam Jackson (1):
      [RANDR] Don't mark Xinerama as active if no crtcs are enabled. (bug #11504).

Alan Hourihane (1):
      Allow yres_virtual to be greater for some kernel fbdev drivers.

Daniel Stone (1):
      Fix key repeats during VT switch.

Eric Anholt (2):
      Fix server version reporting to be the server package version.
      Bump version to 1.4.0.

Keith Packard (2):
      [COMPOSITE] Composite used for pixmap population on redirect. (Bug #7447)
      Deliver correct event when releasing keys on VT switch.

Marius Gedminas (1):
      [RANDR] Compare only milliseconds of config time. (Bug #6502)
