Release Highlights:
    * Fixed a problem that caused signals to be blocked in some applications.
    * Fixed a problem that could cause Xid errors and display 
corruption in certain cases when OpenGL is used to render to 
redirected windows, for example when Java2D is used with the 
-Dsun.java2d.opengl=true option.
    * glGetStringi(GL_EXTENSIONS, i) no longer returns NULL in OpenGL 
3.0 preview contexts.
    * Fixed a problem that caused the screen to flicker momentarily 
when OpenGL applications exit unexpectedly on GeForce 6 and 7 series GPUs.
    * Fixed an X server crash when an X client attempts to draw 
trapezoids and RenderAccel is disabled.
    * Improved recovery from certain types of errors.
    * VDPAU updates:
        * Fixed corruption on some H.264 clips.
        * Update documentation.
        * Fixed VC-1 decoding on 64-bit platforms.
        * Improved handling of invalid H.264 streams.
        * Fixed a problem that caused surfaces to be marked as 
visible too early when the blit presentation queue is in use.
