- add a note about redirection of stderr and rootless login
- add a note about configuration file change
Please check for typos/errors/... 
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 breaks also rootless login. 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).
* 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 yet provide dri3 support because of 
multiple rendering bugs.
