what's changed in 3.9.91?
 - Do not override errors in camera_state_change_null
   If a more detailed error has already been set (through a GError return
   from libcheese), do not override it when changing state to null.

 - Improve cheese_camera_device_get_best_format()
   If a camera device which can do 1600x900 at 10 FPS and 1280x800 @ 25
   FPS, then 1600x900 is not really the best format, as 10 FPS leads to a
   bad user experience.

   Improve the situation by constraining
   cheese_camera_device_get_best_format() to return the format with the
   highest resolution with a width greater than 640 pixels and a framerate
   of greater the 15 FPS.

   If no mode matching the widh >= 640 && frame_rate >= 15 criteria is found,
   get_best_format will behave as before as simply return the highest

 - Limit caps to the maximum framerate
   Limit the caps returned by cheese_camera_device_get_caps_for_format() to
   the maximum framerate supported at the requested resolution. This is
   necessary because GStreamer first selects a format and then a framerate,
   resulting in it picking for 1280x720 as an example, YUYV @ 15 FPS,
   instead of MJPEG @ 30 FPS (which will be converted to i420 by the
   videoconvert element in camerabin2), or at 1600x1200 YUYV @ 5 fps
   instead of MJPEG @ 10 fps.
