Unfortunately, this release included two regressions:

- A failure to build on Win32 platforms, already fixed in git:

- Problems handling keyboard input via XIM:

The developer of the commit that caused the second issue has proposed a fix in
while another user has proposed reverting the MR entirely in

Which of these gets chosen for inclusion in libX11 1.8.9 depends on whether
people who test the first say it solves all the problems they saw introduced
in 1.8.8 or if more work is needed, so please test and provide feedback on
