  with different path prefixes to other handlers.

- core: Added support in CogDirectoryFilesHandler to use the URI host part
  as a path component, to ignore a certain amount of path components, and
  expose the base path as a property.

  supported now.
- drm: The DRM/KMS platform module is now built by default.

  by default when support is detected in the video driver.

  height, settable using the COG_PLATFORM_DRM_MODE_MAX environment variable.
- drm: Fixed usage of the specified output device scaling factor.

  using Mesa's software rasterization.

  zwp_fullscreen_shell_v1 protocol.
- headless: Added new "headless" platform module, which does not produce
  output and can be used without any graphics hardware e.g. in combination
  with Mesa's software rasterization.
- x11: Added new "x11" platform module, which uses an X11 window to paint
  rendered web content using XCB and OpenGL.

## What is Cog?

Cog is a suite of utilities for the WPE WebKit port, including a reusable
library (libcogcore), a launcher (named "cog" as well) suitable to be
used as a Web application container and a reusable library, and a tool
to control the launcher remotely (cogctl) using D-Bus.
