This is a feature release of libXcm, the X11 Colour Management library.
New is the XcmDDC API for direct host to monitor communication.

Changes Overview:
* add XcmDDC API for EDID over i2c
* parse EDID CMD block

For using i2c communication on DP and LVDS you might need a 2.6.35 or 
higher kernel version.

The library communicates X colour regions between server and clients, 
which is described in the included net-color spec.
EDID data can be fetched through i2c communication.
EDID data can be parsed for identification and access to colorimetric 
libXcm help in observing known X11 colour management events.

Known applications using libXcm:
The library is used by CompIcc a compiz plugin for full screen colour 
correction in hardware. libXcm allows the plugin to support 
multi monitor and multiple regions per window. The Oyranos Colour 
Management System uses the EDID parser. qcmsevents applet observes and 
displays colour management events in a nice GUI. Xcm contains three
command line tools for EDID fetching, EDID parsing and event observing.
