What's new in the libwpe 1.0.0 release?

This release changes the API version to 0.2, and introduces the following
changes and features:

- The library is now called libwpe to avoid confusion. The WPEBackend name
  used previously seemed to indicate that the library implemented a WPE
  backend. The new libwpe name better reflects that it contains code needed
  by the WPE WebKit port.
- The libwpe library now uses the libtool versioning convention.
- Handle conversion of keysyms to Unicode inside libwpe. This allowed to
  remove he "unicode" member from keyboard event structs, and removing
- New field in event structs to specify keyboard modifiers.
- New API for keymap and composition handling based on libxkbcommon.

What is WPEBackend

libwpe (formerly WPEBackend) is the library that WPE WebKit uses to load
different backend implementation modules, which themselves provide adaptations
for running WPE WebKit on different platforms.

What is WPE WebKit?

WPE WebKit is an embeddable port of the WebKit rendering engine.
Offering WebKit's full functionality through a set of GObject-based
APIs, it is suitable for projects requiring any kind of web
integration, from hybrid HTML/CSS applications to full-fledged web
