Jonathan had decided the default option of the driver
xdvipdfmx to be '-q -E'. In TL 2014, the option -q (quiet)
was not complete. In TL2015, the option -q is improved to
be really quiet. If some messages are prefered, the -q
option may be removed: xdvipdfmx -E.
In this case,

xdvipdfmx:warning: << /Rotate 90 >> found. (Not supported yet)

is shown if /Rotate command is found.
