wlroots 0.6.0

wlroots 0.6.0 includes the following breaking changes:

	Remove wlr_wl_shell

We have removed the long-deprecated wl_shell implementation from

	output: refactor frame submission API

To migrate from the old API to the new one:

1. Replace wlr_output_make_current calls with wlr_output_attach_render
2. Replace wlr_output_swap_buffers calls with wlr_output_set_damage and
3. Replace wlr_output_damage_make_current calls with
4. Replace wlr_output_damage_swap_buffers with wlr_output_set_damage and
5. Replace wlr_output.needs_swap with wlr_output.needs_frame
6. Replace with

	output: remove lx, ly

The layout coordinates have been removed from wlr_output. Wayland
clients now receive a non-meaningful value from this interface, and
should switch to using xdg-output for this purpose.

	Rename lid_switch to switch_device to disambiguate lid and tablet
	mode switches

To update your compositors, run s/lid_switch/switch_device/g.
