Release notes 

  * New upstream release 0.16.0 (https://launchpad.net/mir/+milestone/0.16.0)
    - ABI summary: Only servers and graphics drivers need rebuilding;
      . Mirclient ABI unchanged at 9
      . Mirserver ABI bumped to 34
      . Mircommon ABI unchanged at 5
      . Mirplatform ABI bumped to 10
      . Mirprotobuf ABI bumped to 2
      . Mirplatformgraphics ABI bumped to 5
      . Mirclientplatform ABI unchanged at 3
    - Enhancements:
      . Significantly shortened buffer holding time for system compositors
        should yield higher/smoother frame rates.
      . Progress on new buffer semantics work.
      . Mir-on-x platform refinements, including support for guest platform,
        key combinations, rotation, display window size.
      . Enhanced cross-compilation, including multi-distro, and multi-arch
        support.
      . Added message auth code to make_event functions. Older implementations
        are now marked as deprecated.
      . Added EventBuilder for input platforms to use to construct events.
      . Improved logging.
      . Added protobuf versioning support.
      . Support for the NATIVE_WINDOW_CONSUMER_USAGE_BITS query.
      . Added utilities to detect the capabilities of an input device.
      . Initial refactoring to support renderers other than GL.
      . Optimized ANR logic to decide less frequent wakeups.
      . Allow clients to set their surface event handler up front.
      . Added ability to provide for setting a scale on BufferStream.
    - Bug fixes: See below.
