Here's a summary of changes from README.md:
libX11 version 1.7.0 includes a new API, hence the change from the 1.6
series to 1.7:
* XSetIOErrorExitHandler which provides a mechanism for applications
to recover from I/O error conditions instead of being forced to
exit. Thanks to Carlos Garnacho for this.
This release includes a bunch of bug fixes, some which have been pending for over three years:
* A bunch of nls cleanups to remove obsolete entries and clean up
formatting of the ist. Thanks to Benno Schulenberg for these.
* Warning fixes and other cleanups across a huge swath of the
library. Thanks to Alan Coopersmith for these.
* Memory allocation bugs, including leaks and use after free in the
locale code. Thanks to Krzesimir Nowak, Jacek Caban and Vittorio
Zecca for these.
* Thread safety fixes in the locale code. Thanks to Jacek Caban for
* poll_for_response race condition fix. Thanks to Frediano Ziglio for
the bulk of this effort, and to Peter Hutterer for careful review
Version 1.7.0 includes a couple of new locales:
* ia and ie locales. Thanks to Carmina16 for these.
There are also numerous compose entries added, including:
* |^ or ^| for ↑, |v or v| for ↓, ~~ for ≈. Thanks to Antti
Savolainen for this.
* Allowing use of 'v' for caron, in addition to 'c', so things like
vC for Č, vc for č. Thanks to Benno Schulenberg for this.
* Compose sequences LT, lt for '<', and GT, gt for '>' for keyboards
where those are difficult to access. Thanks to Jonathan Belsewir
