Bug#603455: release-notes: Please also document that dpi now defaults to 96 and how to change it

Package: release-notes
Severity: normal


As far as I know https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=23705 
still applies. May I suggest something like this:

Starting with Xorg 1.7 the DPI defaults to 96, unless using proprietary 
drivers, which still use the auto-detected value. This can make your 
fonts look very small on a high DPI display. In case you want to change 
the DPI run:

xrandr --dpi <value>

(not tested)
