Summary: The X C Binding (XCB) library

libxcb provides an interface to the X Window System protocol, slated to
replace the current Xlib interface. It has several advantages over
Xlib, including:
 - size: small library and lower memory footprint
 - latency hiding: batch several requests and wait for the replies later
 - direct protocol access: one-to-one mapping between interface and protocol
 - proven thread support: transparently access XCB from multiple threads
 - easy extension implementation: interfaces auto-generated from XML-XCB

Xlib can also use XCB as a transport layer, allowing software to make
requests and receive responses with both, which eases porting to XCB.
However, client programs, libraries, and toolkits will gain the most
benefit from a native XCB port.
