This is a maintainance release of libXcm, the X11 Color Management
library. The package contains some build and protocol improvements.

Changes Overview:
* support for automake-1.12 (Jan Engelhardt)
* support build dir != source dir (Jean-Sébastien Pédron)
* add XcmConfig.cmake
* add make debian target
* describe ICM in X Color Management spec

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

Known applications using libXcm:
The library is used by KolorServer and CompIcc, a Compiz plugin, for full 
screen colour correction in hardware. libXcm allows 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.


Thanks to all contributors.
