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. Please 
note that launching X through a login-manager (gdm, kdm, ...) doesn't yet 
provide rootless access. The old root execution behavior can be restored 
through the Xorg.wrap config file (man xorg.wrap).
* 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 yet provide dri3 support because of 
multiple rendering bugs.
