[ANNOUNCE] fixesproto 4.1

Has anyone compiled this with only stable/released packages (i.e. with 
not *.99.* packages)? Since compiling fixesproto 4.1 with the latest 
released xorg packages results in the error message

"Package 'FixesProto' requires 'xextproto >=' but version of 
XExtProto is 7.0.4"

when compiling libXfixes 4.0.3, I suspect not.

Given that fixesproto 4.1 requires at least xextproto and the 
last stable xextproto was 7.0.5, giving fixesproto a stable version 
number would appear to be very premature. After all, how can something 
be considered stable when it depends on something that is not stable?
