Summary of new features in X11R7.7

This is a sampling of the new features in X11R7.7. A more complete
list of changes can be found in the ChangeLog files that are part of
the source of each X module.

o Multi-touch events are now supported for touchpads and touchscreens
which can report position information on more than one finger
providing input at the same time, such as found on many tablets and
recent laptops. These are exposed by Xorg server 1.12 and later via
the Xinput extension version 2.2.

o Additional Xinput extension features were introduced in version 2.1,
as supported in Xorg server 1.11, including allowing clients to
track raw events from input devices, additional detail in scrolling
events so that clients may perform smoother scrolling, and
additional constants in the Xlib-based libXi API.

o More progress has been made on the X.Org Documentation modernization
- the rest of the library and protocol specifications have been
converted to DocBook XML from the variety of formats they were
previously in, and support for cross-linking between documents hase
been added. On most systems these documents will be installed under
/usr/share/doc/. They are also posted on the X.Org website at
http://www.x.org/releases/X11R7.7/.

o Fence objects are now available in Version 3.1 of the
Synchronization ("Sync") extension. These allow clients to create a
object that is either in "triggered" or "not-triggered" state, and
to perform actions when the object becomes triggered. When a client
requests a fence be triggered, the X server will first complete all
rendering from previous requests that affects resources owned by the
fence's screen before changing the state, so that clients may
synchronize with such rendering. Support for these has been added to
both the libxcb-sync and libXext API's.

o Pointer barriers were added by X Fixes extension Version
5.0. Compositing managers and desktop environments may have UI
elements in particular screen locations such that for a
single-headed display they correspond to easy targets, for example,
the top left corner. For a multi-headed environment these corners
should still be semi-impermeable. Pointer barriers allow the
application to define additional constraint on cursor motion so that
these areas behave as expected even in the face of multiple
displays.

o The XCB libraries have begun adding support for the GLX and XKB
extensions. This work is not yet complete in this release, and not
all of the functionality available through these extensions is
accessibile via the XCB APIs. Some of this effort was funded by past
Google Summer of Code projects.

o Video and input driver enhancements. Please see the ChangeLog files
for individual drivers; there are far too many updates to list here.

o ... and the usual assortment of correctness and crash fixes.
