The new version comes with the following changes:
* X is now rootless with the help of systemd-logind, this also means that it
must be launched from the same virtual terminal as was used to log in,
redirecting stderr also breaks rootless login. The old root execution behavior
can be restored through the Xorg.wrap config file (man xorg.wrap). Please note
that launching X through a login-manager (gdm, kdm, ...) doesn't yet provide
* The default configuration files are now in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d, all
host configurations are still taking place in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ directory.
Please note that files 10-evdev.conf and 10-quirks.conf in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d
could be renamed with .pacsave suffix, which could break your configuration,
then just rename them and remove the .pacsave suffix.
* Better glamor accelerated rendering, deprecating `glamor-egl` package.
* A new package `xorg-server-xwayland` that allows running X applications
inside a wayland session.
* The `xf86-video-intel` package doesn't provide dri3 support anymore because
of multiple rendering bugs.

A new major release of MariaDB will be moved to [extra] soon. The change in
versioning scheme has been made to clearly distinguish provided functionality
from MySQL 5.6. From now on, it won't be possible to easily move between various
MySQL implementations provided in the official repositories.
Due to major changes in MariaDB 10.0, it is recommended (although not necessary)
to dump the tables before upgrading and reloading the dump file afterwards.
After upgrading to the new version don't forget to restart `mysqld.service` and
run `mysql_upgrade` to check the databases for possible errors.
Additionally TokuDB storage engine has been disabled because of repeating build
failures. I'm sorry for any inconvenience caused.
For detailed information on changes and upgrade steps, please refer to [MariaDB
Knowledge Base] and [MySQL Reference Manual].
