Version 1.1.1 - 2006-11-30
The "xcompmgr is hard, let's go releasing" release
* Fix Bug #9154 and friends, to unbreak xcompmgr:
Always process an event for _XReadEvents, even if an error occurs.
Previously, process_responses (in the wait_for_first_event case called
from _XReadEvents) considered any return from xcb_wait_for_event
sufficient to think it had processed an event. If xcb_wait_for_event
returned an error, and no more events occurred before process_responses
called xcb_poll_for_event, process_responses would try to return with
dpy->head NULL, and would fail an assertion for the _XReadEvents
postcondition. Now, process_responses continues using xcb_wait_for_event
until it gets an event.
* Bug #9153: Fix access to freed memory.
The fix for bug #8622 introduced a smaller bug where _XReply would
read memory shortly after freeing it. This patch caches the needed
value in a stack-allocated variable before the heap-allocated memory
* libx11 doesn't use inputproto in public headers; don't require it in x11.pc.
Based on a Debian patch.
* Debian bug #354315: Clarify return value in XGetWindowAttributes man page.
Patch by Debian user Ross Combs.
