This release contains the fix for CVE-2023-5367 in today's security 
advisory: https://lists.x.org/archives/xorg-announce/2023-October/003430.html
Xwayland does not support multiple protocol screens (Zaphod) and is thus
not affected by CVE-2023-5380.

Additionally, there is a change in the default behaviour of Xwayland:
Since version 23.2.0 Xwayland (via liboeffis) automatically tries to
connect to the XDG Desktop Portal's RemoteDesktop interface to obtain
the EI socket. That socket is used to send XTest events to the

However, the connection to the session-wide Portal is unsuitable when 
Xwayland is running in a nested compositor. Xwayland cannot tell whether
it's running on a nested compositor and to keep backwards compatibility
with Xwayland prior to 23.2.0, Xwayland must now be started with
"-enable-ei-portal" to connect to the portal.

Compositors (who typically spawn Xwayland rootless) must now pass this
option to get the same behaviour as 23.2.x.

Finally, Xwayland now uses libbsd-overlay instead of libbsd.
