ConsoleKit2 1.0

The first stable release of ConsoleKit2 is out! Thanks to everyone who has contributed to ConsoleKit2 in any capacity (translations, testing, code, and bug reports).

The next big goal for ConsoleKit2 is adding multi-seat support and server managed file descriptors. This will allow Mir, Wayland, and Xorg to run without root rights. Since that may take several months at the current development pace and distributors would like to depend on ConsoleKit2 now as it’s support slowly being added to other projects, marking ConsoleKit2 stable seems like a good idea.
