Changelog for libinput10-1.7.3-124.1.x86_64.rpm
Fri Jun 9 14:00:00 2017 jengelhAATTinai.de
- Update to new upstream release 1.7.3
* Fix a crash caused by the lid switch handler on device removal
(depending on the removal order, an assertion was triggered).
* A slight palm detection improvement - tapping in
the palm edge detection zone is now ignored, thus reducing the
number of inadvertant focus changes while typing. Previously,
we only ignored those taps in the top half of the touchpad.
Wed May 10 14:00:00 2017 zaitorAATTopensuse.org
- Update to version 1.7.2:
* The main change here are patches that change the pressure
ranges for Elantech touchpads down to something more lenient.
Previously, the range was set too high, causing the touchpad to
behave erratically unless the finger pressure was quite high.
- Drop libinput-elantech-pressure-levels.patch: Fixed upstream.
Tue Apr 25 14:00:00 2017 jengelhAATTinai.de
- Update to new upstream release 1.7.1
* One patch fixes a test case failure for recent systemd
versions, the other patch fixes a minor issue with the
touchpad code that was likely never triggered anyway.
Sat Apr 15 14:00:00 2017 badshah400AATTgmail.com
- Add libinput-elantech-pressure-levels.patch to fix pressure
sensitivity for ELANTECH touchpads causing uncomfortable
two-finger taps, scrolls (boo#1034335, fdo#100463).
Thu Mar 23 13:00:00 2017 jengelhAATTinai.de
- Update to new upstream release 1.7.0
* cyapa touchpads now have a custom pressure ranage
* support for switches, in particular lid switches
* Touchpads now use pressure values to detect touches instead of
relying on BTN_TOUCH
* Wheel tilt events are now handled as such provided the device
is correctly labeled by the hwdb.
* Middle mouse button emulation is now compatible with scroll
wheel emulation, i.e. it is possible to set scroll wheel
emulation on the right mouse button and still enjoy middle
Wed Mar 8 13:00:00 2017 zaitorAATTopensuse.org
- Update to version 1.6.3:
* A few small fixes that likely affect few users only: the
minimum size for horizontal edge scrolling has been reduced to
40mm and hovering touches inside a software button area are
handled better now. Since we don\'t use pressure-based touches
in 1.6.x, this is unlikely to be noticed.
* Requesting an invalid mode group index doesn\'t crash anymore,
that\'s pretty much UX improvement 101.
- Drop libinput-fix-crasher.patch: Fixed upstream.
Wed Mar 1 13:00:00 2017 zaitorAATTopensuse.org
- Add libinput-fix-crasher.patch: Fix a crash when requesting
invalid mode group indices.
Tue Feb 21 13:00:00 2017 jengelhAATTinai.de
- Update to new upstream release 1.6.2
* The top middle button on the Lenovo
*40 series touchpad was
extended by 4mm to match the markings better.
* The Apple onebutton touchpad default to clickfinger behavior.
* libinput-debug-devices now hides the keycode by default. All
\"normal\" keys simply print as \"
*\" instead of e.g. \"KEY_A\".
Thu Feb 2 13:00:00 2017 jengelhAATTinai.de
- Update to new upstream release 1.6.1
* Tap timeout reduction from 1.6 has been reverted back to the
previous default of 180ms.
* The kernel LED support for tablet pads is now available.
Thu Jan 19 13:00:00 2017 jengelhAATTinai.de
- Update to new upstream release 1.6.0
* New touchpad acceleration. This better reflects finger motion,
but can also go a lot faster than before, alleviating some
concerns that the touchpad is too slow.
* The tap parameters have also been changed to provide for a more
* The Asus X555LAB now has a smaller middle software button.
Thu Dec 8 13:00:00 2016 zaitorAATTopensuse.org
- Update to version 1.5.3:
* The HP Pavilion DM4 has a quirk added to disable (jumpy)
* The calibration matrix udev property is now parsed for the path
backend (and parsed in a locale-independent manner).
* We now sync the BTN_TOOL_FINGER state on init. If your touchpad
didn\'t respond until you put two fingers down, this is fixed
now (observed on one elantech touchpad).
Fri Nov 25 13:00:00 2016 jengelhAATTinai.de
- Update to new upstream release 1.5.2
* Tweak the handling of touchpad deltas which leads to much more
responsive pointer motion.
* A custom quirk for the HP Zbook Studio G3 was added.
Fri Nov 11 13:00:00 2016 jengelhAATTinai.de
- Update to new upstream release 1.5.1
* Joysticks are now ignored. The code was in before but did not
* A quirk for the YHP Compat 6910 was added.
* support for the new MOUSE_WHEEL_CLICK_COUNT udev property
Thu Sep 15 14:00:00 2016 zaitorAATTopensuse.org
- Update to version 1.5.0:
* A large part of this release cycle was internal cleanups and
improvements to the test suite, only few new features were
* libinput has built-in palm detection when the trackpoint is in
use. The Lenovo
*60 series (and possibly others) randomly send
a single trackpoint event which used to trigger this palm
detection and disable the touchpad for 300ms. To the user, this
looked like a stuttering touchpad. This is fixed now.
* For touchpads, we now have a new configuration option to allow
a 1/2/3 finger tap be mapped to left, middle and right,
respectively. The default remains at left/right/middle.
* In the disable-while-typing code we now ignore modifier
combinations like ctrl+s to avoid unnecessary timeouts and
* Other touchpad-related fixes include more responsive two-finger
scrolling and better touch point transition handling (i.e. less
pointer jumps after tapping and two-finger scrolling).
* For tablets we now have automatic touch arbitration in
userspace, i.e. we disable the touch input whenever a pen is in
proximity to avoid erroneous pointer moves. Touch arbitration
is currently handled by the kernel but is being phased out over
the next couple of kernel releases. In the future this may
allow for smart touch arbitration based on input areas, for now
we simply copy the kernel\'s behavior and turn touch events off.
Tue Aug 30 14:00:00 2016 jengelhAATTinai.de
- Update to new upstream release 1.4.2
* touchpad: on a non-clickpad, reset the motion history on
* touchpad: reset the edge scroll state on touch up if edge
scroll is disabled
* touchpad: always reset the motion history on finger changes
Fri Aug 5 14:00:00 2016 jengelhAATTinai.de
- Update to new upstream release 1.4.1
* udev: do not overwrite a previously set device group
* touchpad: use the udev ID_INPUT_TOUCHPAD_INTEGRATION
property if available
Mon Jul 18 14:00:00 2016 jengelhAATTinai.de
- Update to new upstrem release 1.4.0
* Mode support for graphics tablets. On many tablets, buttons,
rings and strips can be used in virtualised modes, reflected by
physical LEDs on the touchpad. For example, a ring may send
scroll events when in mode 0 but zoom events in mode 1.
* Ssupport for rotation on some relative devices. This is
particularly useful for trackballs that may be permanently
placed at a nonzero rotation angle.
Fri Jun 24 14:00:00 2016 jengelhAATTinai.de
- Update to new upstream release 1.3.3
* libinput 1.2 dropped using a hysteresis for touchpad devices
because modern touchpads are more precise than older touchpads.
Since it was found that even those newer touchpads are prone to
a wobbling cursor when a finger is held still on the touchpad,
more touchpads were marked over time with the wobbly tag,
defeating the whole idea. The default hysteresis is now
restored for all touchpads.
* Tablet pad capabilities are now listed in libinput-list-devices.
Thu Jun 16 14:00:00 2016 jengelhAATTinai.de
- Update to new upstream release 1.3.2
* It is now warned about when a touchpad\'s events are significantly
outside the kernel-announced range. This usually indicates that a
hwdb entry is needed to make the touchpad work properly.
Mon May 30 14:00:00 2016 jengelhAATTinai.de
- Update to new upstream release 1.3.1
* The pressure change check we used to detect finger releases has
been adjusted to just apply to the Lenovo
it didn\'t work too well on other touchpads and resulted in
* An error message was generated for 3-finger swipes on some touchads that had
gestures disabled, this is fixed now.
Tue May 10 14:00:00 2016 jengelhAATTinai.de
- Update to new upstream release 1.3.0
* touchpad: exclude Logitech touchpads from disable-while-typing
Thu Apr 21 14:00:00 2016 jengelhAATTinai.de
- Update to new upstream release 1.2.902
* Support for so-called tablet pads, i.e. the actual tablet part of
a graphics tablet.
* Addition of middle buttons for touchpads with a software button
area. Previously, a middle button could be triggered by pressing
with a finger in the left and right button area simultanously.
Too many touchpads are unable to reliably detect both fingers.
The middle button area is always available when software buttons
are enabled and encompasses the center 15–20mm on the touchpad.
* Touchscreens that have a fuzz value set on the kernel device are
now defuzzed in libinput, thus stopping pointer wobbles
previously seen when holding the finger still. Note that libinput
does not _set_ the fuzz value, it merely uses it. Employ a udev
rule or hwdb entry to set this on your device if needed.
Tue Apr 19 14:00:00 2016 jengelhAATTinai.de
- Update to new upstream release 1.2.4
* The top software button area on the T440-series touchpads is now
30mm high when the touchpad is disabled to make it easier to hit
* The udev hwdb entries for the Chromebooks were updated to
accommodate for udev\'s silent replacing of non-alphanumeric
characters with \'_\'.
* Added a fuzz filter to tablet devices.
Mon Apr 11 14:00:00 2016 zaitorAATTopensuse.org
- Update to version 1.2.3:
* The handling of the T450 jerky cursor motion had a bug, causing
libinput to complain about invalid states (fdo#94601). This is
* The top software buttons on the T440 generation touchpads had
their left-handed button mapping applied twice, effectively
cancelling it out (fdo#94733). Fixed now, the top buttons will
be mapped correctly in left-handed mode.
* The Wacom airbrush pen slider range now sends the correct
[-1, 1] normalized range.
* And finally, the config call to fetch the default profile
returns the default profile now.
- Drop libinput-touchpad-fixes.patch: Fixed upstream.
Thu Apr 7 14:00:00 2016 zaitorAATTopensuse.org
- Add libinput-touchpad-fixes.patch: Fix left-handed top software
trackpoint buttons (fdo#94733), and only post motion events if
we have motion.
Fri Mar 18 13:00:00 2016 zaitorAATTopensuse.org
- Update to version 1.2.2:
* The two main changes are better cursor handling on the Lenovo
T450/T460-generation touchpads and the rejection of mislabelled
Tue Mar 8 13:00:00 2016 zaitorAATTopensuse.org
- Update to version 1.2.1:
* One fix for touchpads: we added a patch in 1.2 to look at
relative finger positions during gestures to decide whether a
gesture would be a pinch or a swipe gesture. This caused some
two-finger scrolls to be detected as pinch gesture (fdo#94264).
The patch added in this release fixes this issue.
Wed Feb 24 13:00:00 2016 zaitorAATTopensuse.org
- Update to version 1.2.0:
* New stable branch, nothing significant has changed since
Thu Feb 18 13:00:00 2016 zaitorAATTopensuse.org
- Update to version 1.1.902:
* One significant change to the API: the data provided by the
tablet tilt API is now in degrees rather than the previous
normalized value range.
* libinput now has an option to disable tap-and-drag.
* Bugfixes include fixing the the artpen rotation in left-handed
mode and a fix to prevent an invalid serial number on proximity
in (if the kernel doesn\'t immediately give us a serial number).
Thu Feb 18 13:00:00 2016 zaitorAATTopensuse.org
- Update to version 1.1.901:
* The main feature merged in this cycle is graphics tablet tool
support. Devices tagged by udev as ID_INPUT_TABLET are handled
by libinput now and exposed with the
LIBINPUT_DEVICE_CAP_TABLET_TOOL capability. Note that this
currently only includes tablet tool support, including stylus,
eraser, cursor, lens cursor, etc. The \"pad\" part of the tablet
is not yet integrated.
* Further in this release is support for three-finger pinch
gestures on supported hardware. As already announced in 1.1.5,
semi-mt touchpads do not support gesture recognition, the data
is not reliable enough.
* We still reserve the right to change the new tablet API before
the 1.2 release, though we don\'t expect the need for any
- Add pkgconfig(libwacom) BuildRequires: New dependency for wacom
Thu Feb 18 13:00:00 2016 zaitorAATTopensuse.org
- Update to version 1.1.8:
* Two small fixes to the touchpad code. Synaptics semi-mt devices
are now using a hysteresis again to stop the cursor from
wobbling (expected fallout from 1.1.6).
* The no-tappping zone on the far left/right edges has been
extended down from half the touchpad to the top edge of the
software buttons (if any). This prevents phantom taps when a
palm briefly touches the edge of the touchpad.
- Changes from version 1.1.7:
* This release fixes an issue introduced by 1.1.6\'s new
disable-while-typing handling. If dwt was disabled while a key
was held down, the touchpad remained disabled due to a
recurring timer. This is fixed now.
* The other change enables the touchpad motion hysteresis by
default for all ALPS Rushmore touchpads (firmware 0x310).
- Changes from version 1.1.6:
* The calculation of finger motion for multifinger gestures
(including two-finger scrolling) was buggy. A slow two-finger
motion could double the effective speed under some
circumstances, causing scroll jumps. This has been fixed now.
* The touchpad motion hysteresis is now deactivated by default.
This may negatively affect some (especially older) touchpads,
and we\'ll have to re-enable the hysteresis on those. If you
notice pointer wobbles when hold the finger still please file a
bug so we can address this. Everyone else should see a smoother
motion especially on small and tiny motions making single-pixel
elements much easier to target.
* Disable-while-typing now works when a key is held down. And the
pairing algorithm has been improved to avoid cases where the
touchpad was paired with an external USB keyboard, despite
there being a internal keyboard.
* Last: the mode button on the Cyborg RAT 5 is now disabled. This
button is special, on each press it cycles through 3 \'modes\',
sending a release event for the current button and a down event
for the next event code. This causes stuck buttons, since we
have nothing in userspace that would handle that button as
intended, disabling it is the current solution.
Mon Jan 25 13:00:00 2016 zaitorAATTopensuse.org
- Update to version 1.1.5:
* This release fixes a disable-while-typing issue on the Macbook
Pro and works around some middle-finger tap issues on semi-mt
devices. Unfortunately, due to the inconsistent (and often
garbage) data that semi-mt touchpads send we had to resort to
disabling pinch gestures on those devices to make three-finger
Tue Dec 22 13:00:00 2015 zaitorAATTopensuse.org
- Update to version 1.1.4:
* One significant change: previously, we used to take the
device\'s fd from open_restricted() and start synching the
device immediately. If the fd is not closed between a
close_restricted() and a subsequent open_restricted(), or if
the time between opening the fd and handing it to libinput is
great enough, some events accumulate on the fd and are (in
part) immediately replayed after opening the device or
confusing libinput. We now drain any pending events on the fd
after the caller hands it to us.
Wed Dec 16 13:00:00 2015 zaitorAATTopensuse.org
- Update to version 1.1.3:
* Only one change that affects users, and that one is limited to
users of the Lenovo x220 with an updated touchpad firmware
- Changes from version 1.1.2:
* The 2-finger scroll threshold was reduced to 1mm which
significantly reduces the delay users experienced when
* events are not posted as button events anymore.
These aren\'t button events anyway, they are signals from the
kernel that a different tool is being used.
* Once diagonal scrolling was triggered, scroll events without a
horizontal or vertical would still have the matching axis flag
set and look like scroll stop events to the caller.
* On a semi-mt touchpad with hovering capabilities, releasing
both fingers within the same event frame caused a bug log
message, this is fixed now.
Tue Nov 24 13:00:00 2015 alarrosaAATTsuse.com
- List the package contents inside /lib/udev since we don\'t
want libinput-udev to own /lib/udev itself, which is already owned
by the udev package.
- Modified summary of libinput-udev to begin with a capital letter
as required by rpmlint.
Tue Nov 17 13:00:00 2015 zaitorAATTopensuse.org
- Update to version 1.1.1:
* Two significant fixes and a couple of other cleanups.
* Pointer acceleration is now initialized for pointer-like device
without buttons. Some devices have rel x/y axes but no buttons
and aren\'t tagged as pointers by udev. If such a device sent an
event it could cause a crash in libinput.
* An error in in the struct list handling caused device groups to
write to invalid memory. The immediate effect observed was that
the log priority changed seemingly randomly, but different
optimization options may cause other effects.
Wed Oct 28 13:00:00 2015 zaitorAATTopensuse.org
- Update to version 1.1.0:
* This is a relatively small update, most of the bugfixes have
found their way into the libinput 1.0.x releases.
* The big addition here is the introduction of pointer
acceleration profiles, or, more specifically, the \"flat\"
profile. By default, libinput provides some (device-specific)
pointer acceleration as outlined in
* There is significant demand for the device to move
unaccelerated, i.e. the device\'s virtual movements to move 1:1
to the physical movements. Changing the device\'s acceleration
profile to the \"flat\" profile achieves exactly that. For a
device in the flat profile, the speed setting range merely
multiples the deltas with a constant value (for a speed of 0,
the default, the value is 1).
We have kernel-4.2.x in Tumbleweed now.
Mon Oct 26 13:00:00 2015 zaitorAATTopensuse.org
- Update to version 1.0.2:
* This release contains two tapping fixes. A multitap (triple
tap, quadruple tap, ...) caused one too many click events,
particularly noticable during a double-tap-and-hold dragging
* The second fix avoids erroneous click events when two fingers
are placed on the touchpad and one finger is released within
the tap timeout. This can happen when executing short but
frequent two-finger scroll movements.
Thu Sep 3 14:00:00 2015 mpluskalAATTsuse.com
- Update to 1.0.1
* filter: fix constant acceleration for the X230
Wed Aug 26 14:00:00 2015 mpluskalAATTsuse.com
- Update to 1.0.0
* doc: inverse event type restriction of x and y accessors
* doc: ellipse instead of ellipsis
* test: fix gcc warning about missing prototypes
* doc: fix more typos
* doc: add a diagram for evemu and note that libinput doesn\'t recordings
* configure.ac: libinput 1.0
Fri Aug 21 14:00:00 2015 zaitorAATTopensuse.org
- Update to version 0.99.1:
* Release candidate for libinput 1.0.
* No additions to the API, this release only contains a couple of
bugfixes and general improvements.
* The most obvious fix is that natural scrolling now also works
for edge scrolling. The threshold needed to trigger scrolling
on a touchpad was reduced to 2mm in 0.21 but a bug prevented
that from activating until 5mm movement was hit.
* Touchpad scrolling now uses unaccelerated motion data. This
provides better behavior for short consecutive scroll motions
and a better 1:1 mapping between finger and content, especially
with natural scrolling.
* The pointer acceleration code has been cleaned up, though the
focus here was to make it easier to understand for developers.
The functionality remained largely the same aside from a few
Tue Aug 4 14:00:00 2015 zaitorAATTopensuse.org
- Update to version 0.21.0:
* A new addition to the API is the configuration option to toggle
disable-while-typing. It\'s still enabled by default, but can
now be disabled for the use-cases where it is problematic
(games, for example). The API is the usual quartett of
* The second addition to the API is the ability to get the time
in microseconds from an event:
* libinput switched internally to use µs for all timestamps which
will help those devices that have a sampling frequency of more
* Thumb detection, added for 0.20, has seen fine-tuning to reduce
the number of misdetection. Likewise, the gesture code has seen
a bunch of changes to tune the reliability of gesture
detection, especially on semi-mt touchpads.
* Scrolling is now more reactive too, with reduced thresholds
before scrolling kicks in.
* Merged a bunch of device-specific device handling to
work around quirks and deficiencies in some touchpad hardware.
following upstreams advice for kernel 4.1.
Sat Jul 18 14:00:00 2015 tittiatcokeAATTgmail.com
- Update to version 0.20.0:
* The big new addition in this release is support for touchpad
gestures. Two types of gestures are supported: swipe and pinch.
Swipe is triggered by a movement of 3+ fingers in the same
direction, pinch is triggered by two fingers moving towards or
away from each other and/or a rotation around a logical center.
Both gestures, once triggered, can move around the touchpad,
making it possible to use them for fine-grained motion.
* Edge scrolling is now possible on clickpads too and thus available
on all touchpads. Thumb detection was added, it is now possible
to rest the thumb on a clickpad while moving a pointer without
* libinput now requires touchpads to have a resolution. If the
kernel device does not set it and none of the hwdb rules do either,
libinput assigns a default resolution to the device. This may have
an effect on your touchpad, please file a bug if you notice
anything untoward. On the positive side it removes the magic
numbers sprinkled through the code
Thu Jul 9 14:00:00 2015 zaitorAATTopensuse.org
- Update to version 0.19.0:
* The biggest change in this release is improved pointer
acceleration code. Previously, slow movements were decelerated.
For anything resembling normal motion the pointer response is
effectively 1:1, making the cursor respond nicely to your mouse
* Low-dpi devices had a bug where they would skip pixels for
small movements. This was caused by the pointer normalization
to 1000dpi. Devices with a native resolution below 1000dpi now
have their own acceleration curve, providing much better
* The side-effect of this is that we had to drop the pretense of
normalization to 1000dpi. The documentation has been adjusted.
* The second side-effect is that the unaccelerated data is now
closer (or equal) to the device native resolution.
* The second user-visible change is disabling of tap drag-lock by
default. A new config API triplett is available to enable it:
* Other fixes include better responsiveness of the touchpad when
switching from the trackpoint to the touchpad and a smaller
edge scroll motion threshold. And of course the usual bugfixes.
Tue Jun 23 14:00:00 2015 zaitorAATTopensuse.org
- Update to version 0.18.0:
* Touchpad handling has improved filters for erroneous small
movements. Palm detection in the edge scrolling zone has been
disabled, it previously caused unreliable edge scrolling on
* Alps touchpads now always provide a config option for middle
button emulation - these devices don\'t know whether a middle
button is available, providing the option (and defaulting to
emulation on) allows users to have a better out-of-the-box
* Note that license boilerplate code has changed - it now carries
the MIT license as intended. See the commit log for bc9f16b40e
* No API changes or additions.
Sat Jun 6 14:00:00 2015 zaitorAATTopensuse.org
- Update to version 0.17.0:
* The timeout for the tap-and-drag has been significantly
* Really slow mouse movement got swallowed because the
acceleration calculations timed out and returned an
acceleration factor of 0.
* Basic thumb detection was added for clickfinger behaviour, it
is now possible to execute a single click with a thumb while
the pointer-moving finger is resting on the touchpad.
- Changes from version 0.16.0:
* Touchpads with ABS_MT_DISTANCE such as the Chromebook Pixel are
* The tapping code now allows ending a tap-and-drag with an extra
tap, i.e. the sequence becomes:
tap, finger down, move .... move, finger up, tap
* Also in the touchpad code: disable-while-typing has been added.
Wed May 6 14:00:00 2015 zaitorAATTopensuse.org
- Update to version 0.15.0:
* One new API was added: libinput_device_keyboard_has_key() which
does what it says on the box.
* A new tool is now available: libinput-debug-events
This tool allows debugging libinput events directly, it works
as something like an evtest to libinput. Note that it is very
much a debugging tool only, do not rely on any specific
behavior or output format.
* A new udev property POINTINGSTICK_CONST_ACCEL is now supported
for pointing sticks. If set for a compatible device, the input
data is multiplied with a constant factor.
* We\'ve added support for the LIBINPUT_MODEL_xzy udev tag. This
enables us to tag specific models or series in udev and apply
* A couple of bugfixes, mainly in the touchpad code. The
doubletap timeout is now longer but multi-tapping is generally
more responsive now.
* Clickfinger behavior was fixed to allow left-clicks even when a
touch isn\'t present on the device.
* Button scrolling is enabled by default on some devices now,
specifically on devices without a scroll wheel but with a
Mon May 4 14:00:00 2015 zaitorAATTopensuse.org
- Also set Version to 0.14.1, no need to have a diff there.
Wed Apr 22 14:00:00 2015 zaitorAATTopensuse.org
- Update to version 0.14.1:
* libinput now provides middle button emulation for physical
buttons and, for some devices, a configuration interface to
enable said emulation.
* A new tool \"libinput-list-devices\" was added. This tool lists
the locally recognised devices and their respective
configuration options and configuration defaults. Note that due
to the design of libinput, this tool can only show the
_default_ configurations, not the _current_ configuration of
* The pointer acceleration range has been widened to allow for
greater deceleration and greater acceleration. Since we retain
the [-1, 1] range, you may see a slight slowdown or speedup. To
get the previous behaviour, use the value: current setting
* Five (or more) finger tapping is now handled correctly, though
note we only send events for up to three fingers. libinput now
supports multi-tap and drag, so e.g. three taps will execute a
* Palm detection now avoids accidental tapping, see
* And of course the usual bugfixing, including letting libinput
handle more devices such as keyboards with scroll wheels or
devices that only consist of a wheel.
- Add tool subpackage.
Wed Apr 8 14:00:00 2015 mpluskalAATTsuse.com
- Update to 0.13.0
* No API changes were merged in this release, the ABI is
compatible with 0.12.0.
* The tap motion threshold is now a fixed distance on all
touchpads (withphysical resolution). This stops the delay in
pointer motion seen on some devices.
* The edge scrolling motion threshold now accumulates, so even a
slow scroll will eventually trigger edge scrolling.
* The velocity calculation on slow movements was fixed, this
should provide a slightly more responsive and accurate
touchpad motion, especially on direction changes.
* To ease development, libinput will now print warnings when a
caller does wrong event conversions (e.g. requesting a touch
event when the event is a pointer event, etc.).
Sat Mar 14 13:00:00 2015 jengelhAATTinai.de
- Update to new upstream release 0.12.0
* The new features (since 0.11) are device groups and the use of
udev tagging for device identification. Device groups are a
labelling system to allow callers to identify which libinput
devices are part of the same physical device.
* libinput\'s API and ABI are now stable
* Fixes to correctly handle Protocol A multitouch devices.
* Buttonless touchpads are now supported (e.g. the touch portion of
the Wacom Intuos tablets), on those touchpads tapping is enabled

- Update to new upstream release 0.10.0
* A call to libinput_device_config_accel_set_speed() with a value
of NAn triggered an assert() in libinput.
* Pointer devices with absolute axes (such as the ones used in VMs)
had an uninitialized pointer acceleration speed, triggering a
warning in the xorg libinput driver.
- Changes from upstream release 0.9.0
* Support for hovering fingers on touchpads. Some touchpads detect
fingers before actually touching the surface causing unexpected
motion events. libinput now handles such touchpads.
* Click methods are now configurable, see below for more details.
* Support for the Lenovo X1 Carbon 3rd was added. Note that this
requires kernel patches and a udev hwdb addition.
- API additions:

- Update to new upstream release 0.8.0
* Improved touchpad support. For example, it is not necessary
anymore to lift all fingers when switching from scrolling to
* Scroll event types were merged. Previously we supplied horiz/vert
scrolling as separate event, even in diagnonal scrolling.
Now each scroll event may contain one or more axes.
* Support for axis sources: a scroll event can be of source finger,
wheel or continuous. This enables callers to implement kinetic
* Scroll wheel events now return the data in degrees. A matching
udev hwdb system is in place to adjust this when needed. A
\"discrete\" scroll value is available if you are interested in
the clicks only.
* Left-handed configuration was renamed. For future tablet support,
the button-based naming was inappropriate. A simple
search/replace fixes this.

- Update to new upstream release 0.7.0
* Devices can be disabled/enabled at runtime. This includes smart
disabling of touchpads when a USB mouse is plugged in, and smart
disabling of the T440 touchpads so that the top buttons still
work even when the touchpad is disabled.
* Edge scrolling is available on some devices, and the scroll
method can be switched at runtime
* Trackpoints can scroll by pressing the middle button and moving
the stick. This button-scrolling method is also available on
other devices on request.
* Pointer acceleration is becoming device-resolution independent,
provided your device has a DPI entry in the udev hwdb. This makes
high-resolution gaming mice behave normally. See this post for
* Pointer speed can be changed at runtime.
* Natural scrolling is now available, for touchpads and mice.
* Devices can be switched to left-handed, libinput handles the
* Devices can be asked to change their assigned logical seat at
* Relative pointer events also provide unaccelerated motion. Note
that this is _not_ raw data as it comes from the device, it is
normalized to 1000dpi.

- Update to new upstream release 0.6.0
* This release has some API changes, namely:
\"libinput_device_get_keys\" is deprecated.
* Initial device state can now always be assumed to be that no
keys are pressed. Calibration of touch devices has been changed
to be using a normalized calibration matrix. While
libinput_device_calibrate has undergone this change, it has
also been deprecated and replaced with a configuration API.
* The implicit reading of the udev parameter WL_CALIBRATION has
been removed in favor for LIBINPUT_CALIBRATION_MATRIX. The
usage of WL_CALIBRATION was broken because the translation part
of its matrix was in pixels which is a metric not available in
libinput. The new calibration matrix avoids this by having the
translation be normalized to the dimension of the device
dimensions. See the documentation for details about how to use
the LIBINPUT_CALIBRATION_MATRIX udev parameter.

- Update to new upstream release 0.5.0
* Device information (name, vendor id, product id) getters
* The beginning of a configuration API. So far tapping on touchpads
can be enabled or disabled.
* As a side effect, tapping is now disabled by default and needs
explicit enabling via the new API.

- Update to version 0.4.0:
* The logging system now works per-context instead of per library
and dropped the userdata argument.
* libinput_destroy() was changed to libinput_unref(), plus you
now have libinput_ref() too.
* A couple of renames of constants for API consistency.
Triggered by the logging changes, creation of udev seats is now
* A couple of bugfixes, mainly in the touchpad code.
Absolute event coordinates are now provided in mm, not
device-specific coordinates. This doesn\'t change anything for
callers using the respective_get_transformed() function.
* ref/unref() is now available for the libinput context itself.
