I just wanted to inform you about new required dependencies for KWin 5.3. Due
to outdated packages on our current CI system they are marked as optional (if
the new CI is rolled out prior to the release they will change to being marked
* XCB minimum version 1.10: with an older version you won't have synced
* xcb/util-cursor : replaces XCursor library. Without you won't have e.g.
resize/move cursors or cursors in effects like Present Windows.
In addition we found and fixed  an issue in the xcb/util-cursor library
which could result in no cursor  if the used theme does not contain the
elements KDE/Qt expects (this mostly affects default cursor themes changed by
distros). I recommend to pull the patch  or update to the new release 
for KWin 5.3. As the release is brand new I will wait till 5.4 to make it the
minimum required version to give you guys enough time to package.
Sorry for any inconvenience this causes in your release process.
