This is the first development release leading towards the 1.8 series.

## What's new in WPEBackend-fdo 1.7.1?

- Added new API for the audio rendering protocol, which allows embedders to
  receive audio samples instead of letting WPE WebKit handle their playback.
- Added support to export frames using EGLStreams, which can be used e.g.
  with Nvidia GPUs.
- New build configuration system based on Meson. The existing CMake-based
  system is still maintained, and both produce the same outputs.
- Expose symbols for the version retrieval functions.
- Use libepoxy for EGL operations.

## What is WPEBackend-fdo?

WPEBackend-fdo is a backend implementation for WPE WebKit which targets
FreeDesktop.org (FDO) technologies, and uses Wayland for graphics output.
