This is a development release leading towards the 1.10 series.

## What's new in WPEBackend-fdo 1.9.90?

- Added API to obtain the wl_resource for SHM exported buffers.
- Fixed headers to include <wpe/wpe.h> from the top-level API headers, as
  their consumers expect the public libwpe API to be defined as well.
- Fixed UI process getting stuck when navigating across different security
  origins. This also fixed a small memory leak.
- Fixed invalid usage of Wayland client connections in the nested compositor
  which caused sporadic crashes in certain conditions.
- Fixed a file descriptor leak on view backend initialization.
- Fixed a small memory leak when releasing exportable view backends.

## 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.
