This is a bug fix release in the stable 1.8 series.

## What's new in WPEBackend-fdo 1.8.4?

- Fixed frozen web views not being updated after PSON when multiple web
  views (and hence view backends) are in use.
- Fixed invalid usage of Wayland client connections in the nested compositor
  which caused crashes in some situations.

## 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.
