    This daemon listens on localhost port 15550 for client connections,
    and arbitrates LCD display.  Allows for multiple simultaneous clients.
    Client screens can be cycled through by pressing the 'L1' key.
*/

Version 1.0-pre0
- Initial release
1.1 21/07/2006
- Add WBMP support and Perl bindings.
1.2 31/07/2006
** IMPORTANT NOTE **
This release has changed the LCD screen switch function to the MR key to
allow clients use of all 'L' keys.
**
- reduce per-thread stack usage - default was 8Mb on i386 linux.  now 256k
  this makes top output look much nicer ;)
- optimize lcd buffer path, removing a conversion step. and reducing the
  buffer size from 7k to 1k
- misc other memory optimisations.
- added python bindings (thanks muhgatus)
- added ability for lcd clients to receive L G & M key keypresses directly
- moved lcd display/client switch from L1 to MR
- MR key is now backlit when clients are attached.
- Added ability for lcd clients to change backlight brightness
- Added ability for lcd clients to toggle M-key LEDs
- Added libG15Render client support.
- Added ability for hidden lcd clients to bring themselves to the foreground
- clients change only their own backlight/mkey led status
1.2.1 06/08/2006
- Fix bug which could cause client screens to be lost under certain circumstances.
1.2.2 28/10/2006
- Vastly improve latency issues when using 'G' keys
- Documentation updates
- includes xkb patch for xorg 7.1 for native g15 keyboard layout in X11 (contrib directory)
1.2.3 30/10/2006
- improved the Xmodmaprc configuration, it now has parity with the xkb version
1.2.4 01/11/2006
- Users can now choose to use the L1 key to switch between client screens instead of MR. 
  - L1 is the small round black button directly below the LCD.
  - Use -s on the commandline to activate the change.
1.2.5 05/11/2006
- Add ability for clients to request all M and G keypresses be 'pushed' to them,
  rather than having to request them repeatedly.  If a client uses this
  option, no keyboard processing is done by the daemon, and the client must
  be prepared to do uinput processing itself, if necessary.  This limitation
  may be removed in future versions of the API.  Normal processing will
  resume when the client that requested this feature exits or closes its
  connection.
- Add manpage for the daemon.
- Fix automake bug that caused documentation not to be installed by default.
- Fix the daemons cmdline processing to handle more than one commandline option.
- Refactored the code slightly to allow for easier modification in the future.
- Handle long commandline arguments such as --help --version --kill --switch.
- Greatly improve error reporting.
- Add client development documentation (man g15daemon_client_devel / README.client_devel)
- Added a 'debug' mode (-d or --debug) cmdline switch to keep the daemon in the foreground
  rather than daemonising.  All errors and other info will be reported to STDERR in this mode.
- If compiled with libg15 1.1.0 or greater (or svn versions later than 3/11/06), the daemon 
  will now reset the keyboard to defaults on exit.
- make distcheck && make dist now work as expected.
- libg15daemon_client is now slightly more useful
- debian packaging now installs manpages
1.2.5svn -> current
- Add compiletime check for uinput version, should resolve compilation problems on some distro's
- Security improved - the daemon now sets its effective uid to nobody as soon as possible.
1.9.0SVN
- Add plugin API
- partially rewritten event core 
90
- updated g15daemon_xmms_spectrum plugin with new features, available in trunk/g15daemon_audio_plugins (SVN)
91 92 93 94 95
- Clock is now a plugin
- dependency on libdaemon is now removed
- g15daemon is now dependant on libg15render.
- Clock now includes analog clock thanks to Rasta Freak <igor.jusic@zg.t-com.hr>
- Moved g15daemon_xmms_spectrum plugin to separate package
96 97
- Plugins are now installed in ${PREFIX}/lib/g15daemon/${VERSION}/plugins
- OS-X support thanks to Fabrizio Sestito.
