Changelog for libinput10-1.12.6-193.2.x86_64.rpm
* Mon Jan 21 2019 bjorn.lieAATTgmail.com- Update to new upstream release 1.12.6
* Two quirks for specific devices (Contour Roller Mouse and the Acer Spin 5), two little cleanups.
* Mon Jan 07 2019 Jan Engelhardt - Update to new upstream release 1.12.5
* Fixes an issue with the Asus VivoBook Flip 14 TP412UA, the tablet mode switch is \"stuck\", causing the keyboard and touchpad to stop working. A quirk was added to rectify this.
* Tue Dec 18 2018 Jan Engelhardt - Update to new upstream release 1.12.4
* Three hardware-specific quirks for the HP Spectre x360 (touchpad pressure thresholds), the Macbook Pro 11,2 (palm thresholds) and the Lenovo T480s (missing INPUT_PROP_BUTTONPAD) were added.
* Wed Nov 07 2018 Jan Engelhardt - Update to new upstream release 1.12.3
* A new quirk \"AttrEventCodeDisable\" was added
* Wed Oct 24 2018 Jan Engelhardt - Update to new upstream release 1.12.2
* The Lenovo x220t and x60t do not disable the keyboard in tablet-mode anymore.
* Button debouncing is now disabled on VMware virtual devices.
* The Wacom Intuos Pro PTH-660 palm threshold was restored to the original value, it was changed accidentally.
* libinput now assumes that you only have one thumb per hand, which is a statistically well-supported approximation.
* A 2-finger movement out of the software button area now will no longer trigger spurious pointer motion events if one finger exits the button area before the other one.
* The Wacom Intuos Pro PTH-660, when connected over Bluetooth, sometimes caused an invalid event sequence that caused libinput to lose track of the tap counter which again triggered an assertion later.
* Wed Oct 03 2018 Jan Engelhardt - Update to new upstream release 1.12.1
* A few entries there had to be corrected/added, including the one for the MS Nano Transceiver, the Dell XPSL322X touchpad and some of the Elan Touchpad quirks. A new quirk was added for the Kensington Orbit trackball which is confused about it\'s non-existing middle button and for the Asus UX302LA touchpad which thinks pressure isn\'t necessary once two fingers are down.
* Apple touchpads randomly triggered an assert (under very specific, but easy enough to trigger conditions), which is fixed now.- Remove 0001-quirks-fix-the-trackpoint-multiplier-for-the-Dell-E7.patch
* Mon Oct 01 2018 sndirschAATTsuse.com- 0001-quirks-fix-the-trackpoint-multiplier-for-the-Dell-E7.patch
* refix the trackpoint multiplier for the Dell E7470 (boo#1013647, fdo#106323, gitlab issue#148)
* Tue Sep 11 2018 Jan Engelhardt - Update to new upstream release 1.12.0
* Fixed: The tablet axis smoothing previously caused some axes to change value even though the \"axis has changed\" bit wasn\'t set in the event.
* The delta for tablet axis events is now always 0 for tip up/down events. This works around the pointer jumps seen on some devices when the tip is pressed/released.
* The fuzz handling (i.e. hysteresis auto-detection) was restored after being accidentally removed during the hwdb->quirks rework.
* Fri Jul 27 2018 kbabiochAATTsuse.com- Update to 1.11.3
* Improve HP Chromebook 14 pressure ranges
* Several documentation updates
* Sat Jul 07 2018 bjorn.lieAATTgmail.com- Update to version 1.11.2:
* Add a trackpoint range entry for the Lenovo X270.
* Better lid handling for the Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga models.
* Fixed touchpad palm detection on the Lenovo X1 Carbon 6th.
* Change pressure ranges for the XPS13 9333.
* Wed Jun 20 2018 kbabiochAATTsuse.com- Update to 1.11.1 - udev: the IBM X41 Tablet must not disable the keyboard in tablet mode - filter: cap trackpoint scale factor at 1.0 - touchpad: don\'t pair external touchpads with lid/tablet mode switches - tools: fix grab argument passing for libinput debug-events
* Tue Jun 05 2018 jengelhAATTinai.de- Update to new upstream release 1.11.0
* Automatic parsing of the trackpoint sensitivity sysfs file was reverted, since this caused the trackpoint to send NaN deltas on some devices, notiably the Lenovo CompactKeyboard with Trackpoint.
* A new tool pair is available now: libinput record and libinput replay. These tools supersede the evemu-record/evemu-play tools currently used to debug events.
* The touchpad jitter detection code has been improved to reduce the number of false positives. Some touchpads require the kernel fuzz setting to be set to avoid pointer jitter though, please see this page for details: https://wayland.freedesktop.org/libinput/doc/latest/touchpad_jitter.html
* A new touchpad acceleration code has been merged, the behavior now resembles the pointer acceleration of macOS. You will notice that your touchpad is slower at slow speeds and accelerates sooner. At the same time, the speed range available has been greatly extended, so the slowest speed and highest speed are quite significantly apart now. This should, hopefully, allow all users to select a speed to match their preferences.
* The maximum delta for trackpoints has been increased, reducing the amount of pressure required to move the pointer around the screen.
* A bunch of trackpoint range hwdb entries to set the expected range for some common devices were merged. The POINTINGSTICK_SENSITIVITY udev property is now ignored, instead we just read that value directly from sysfs.- Remove 0001-udev-default-to-a-trackpoint-range-of-160-for-the-ne.patch, 0002-udev-support-firmware-detection-for-pointing-sticks.patch (upstreamed)
* Fri Jun 01 2018 mwilckAATTsuse.com- spec file: added \"udevadm hwdb --update\" to %post Without this, changes to the hwdb file won\'t be visible- spec file: fixed build error on Leap 42.3
* Wed May 30 2018 mwilckAATTsuse.com- Fix ALPS trackpoint speed (bsc#1013647, fdo#106323) backported from upstream 1.10.902
* added 0001-udev-default-to-a-trackpoint-range-of-160-for-the-ne.patch
* added 0002-udev-support-firmware-detection-for-pointing-sticks.patch- spec file: use %license for COPYING
* Fri May 18 2018 jengelhAATTinai.de- Update to new bugfix release 1.10.7
* The Logitech Wireless Touchpad and the MacBook Pro 5,5 had their palm thresholds added/updated.
* A tapping bug caused taps to be ignored after thumb detection.
* Tue May 01 2018 jengelhAATTinai.de- Update to new bugfix release 1.10.6
* Improve responsiveness for Apple Magic Trackpad.
* evdev: don\'t suspend keyboard on ThinkPad X1 Yoga 1st in tablet mode.
* evdev: disable ABS_MT_TOOL_PALM on the Lenovo X1 Carbon 6th gen.
* udev: add the P50 to the T450 jumping motion quirks.
* Thu Apr 19 2018 jengelhAATTinai.de- Update to new bugfix release 1.10.5
* The Logitech K400 has button debouncing disabled to avoid missing double-taps. The Dell XPS13 L322X had the touchpad pressure ranges added to provide better responsiveness. And the Lenovo T440, T450s and X280 laptops had the trackpoint ranges added to provide better trackpoint acceleration.
* Tue Apr 10 2018 bjorn.lieAATTgmail.com- Update to version 1.10.4:
* Biggest user-noticeable change is that the hysteresis threshold is significantly reduced to 0.25 of a mm now or to the kernel fuzz value where present. This should make touchpads a bit more snappy.
* Two fixes for touchpad touch handling, one affecting semi-mt devices with hovering capability and one affecting the Apple touchpads where a touch can get erroneously detected as as exceeding the speed thesholds.
* The rest - documentation and tool fixes. Nandor\'s udev fix fixes a race condition in the test suite.
* Wed Mar 14 2018 jengelhAATTinai.de- Update to bugfix release 1.10.3
* Fix a crasher triggered by a specific event sequence during 3-finger gestures (and on some touchpads 2-finger gestures).
* Fix the new pointer jitter detection. A bitmask got lost and the software compared 32 bits instead of only the 3 it ought to care about.
* Wed Mar 07 2018 jengelhAATTinai.de- Update to bugfix release 1.10.2
* Fixes an assertion that triggered when the tapping code lost track of the finger count. This was triggered by palm detection, but only by specific event sequences.
* Hysteresis is disabled by default now, but if libinput detect pointer jitter/wobble, the hysteresis is enabled for the rest of the session.
* Sun Mar 04 2018 jengelhAATTinai.de- Update to new upstream release 1.10.1
* This release fixes three crashers, one during tapping, two on startup/resume when the device node or seat were not assigned correctly.
* Tue Feb 13 2018 jengelhAATTinai.de- Update to new upstream release 1.10.0
* Dropping of the touchpad hysteresis. Previously, we employed a hysteresis to avoid pointer wobbles. A side-effect of that hysteresis was that small pointer motion wasn\'t as reactive as it should be. A previous attempt in 2016 to drop it failed (too many devices still needed it) so this time round we have a different approach: we analyse the event sequence from the touchpad and if we find it doesn\'t wobble, we disable the hysteresis for good. In most cases, this happens fast enough that you won\'t even notice, resulting in a more reactive pointer.
* Touchpad tapping now handles palm detection where applicable, resting a palm on a touchpad while tapping should not confuse libinput anymore. Previously, palm touches were treated like any other touch, causing unexpected 2 and 3-finger clicks.
* Some of the newer Wacom tablets (and older, worn-out ones) can have a leftover pressure on tip up. This caused libinput to miss out on the proximity event, leading to a constantly in-proximity tool. A new threshold for proximity out fixes this.- Remove 0001-evdev-add-a-quirk-to-disable-debouncing-on-the-MS-Na.patch (included upstream)
* Thu Feb 08 2018 jengelhAATTinai.de- Add 0001-evdev-add-a-quirk-to-disable-debouncing-on-the-MS-Na.patch
* Thu Dec 14 2017 jengelhAATTinai.de- Update to new upstream release 1.9.4
* This fixes a regression introduced in 1.9.3 where some key events got lost or arrived out-of-order.
* Tue Nov 28 2017 jengelhAATTinai.de- Update to new upstream release 1.9.3
* New button debouncing code that makes the stuck buttons a thing of the past.- Add kill-env.diff
* Wed Nov 15 2017 jengelhAATTinai.de- Update to new upstream release 1.9.2
* Support for multiple paired keyboards for disable-while-typing. This is required for some of Razer\'s products where the keyboard exports multiple virtually identical event nodes.
* Thu Nov 09 2017 aavindraaAATTgmail.com- Update to version 1.9.1:
* Stop a crash when a lid was opened/closed multiple times while typing.
* Reduction of the palm edge zone to a maximum width of 8mm (this notably helps users of recent macs that have large touchpads)
* Benjamin\'s fix to the device groups enables touch arbitration on the Dell Canvas 27 (still needs libwacom changes)- Remove name specification from %setup, not needed
* Wed Nov 01 2017 zaitorAATTopensuse.org- Use autosetup macro.- Stop rm\'ing la files, no longer exists as we are using meson buildsystem.
* Wed Oct 25 2017 dimstarAATTopensuse.org- Update to version 1.9.0:
* Fix build with meson 0.43 (option parser became stricter).
* Touchpads can now use pressure-based palm detection if the hardware supports it.
* On touchpads with ABS_MT_TOUCH_MAJOR/MINOR we can now use those for touch detection (especially if per-touch pressure is not available).
* Touchpads now ignore extra fingers while the pointer- controlling finger is moving.
* Trackpoints have had their pointer acceleration re-done.
* Pointer devices now have button debouncing automagically enabled.
* The tablet-mode switch on hybrid laptop/tablet devices (e.g. Lenovo Yoga) now disables the touchpad, trackpoint and internal keyboard to avoid fake touches when the tablet is placed on a lap or just held with the fingers on those devices.
* Thu Oct 05 2017 zaitorAATTopensuse.org- Update to version 1.8.3:
* Two user-visible fixes: The Wacom Mobile Studio Pro pad device was previously ignored because of its accelerometer tag, this is fixed now. And touchpads that are explicitly disabled by the user now stay disabled after a lid open event.
* The rest is all related to the test suite to make sure it still runs correctly. Finally, a stray printf was removed from libinput-debug-events.
* Thu Sep 07 2017 jengelhAATTinai.de- Update to new bugfix release 1.8.2
* Change in experience is that 2-slot touchpads (e.g. most Lenovos before kernel 4.12) do not support 3fg pinch anymore - instead we assume swipe for three fingers, which makes gestures a lot more reliable (3-finger swipe is much more common than 3-finger pinch anyway).
* Wed Aug 30 2017 zaitorAATTopensuse.org- Pass --includedir=\"%_includedir/%name\" to meson, set includedir to \"standard\" for openSUSE, align with what we had before the switch to meson as buildsystem.
* Mon Jul 24 2017 zaitorAATTopensuse.org- Update to version 1.8.1:
* This release includes a build fix for the meson build (together with better meson instructions).
* The palm edge zone is slightly increased from 5% to 8% to avoid accidental palm touches in the edges. On most modern touchpads that works out to be a 5mm to 8mm increase.
* The second one is a straightforward bugfix: if the keyboard was removed while disable-while-typing was active, the touchpad would never turn on again.
* Mon Jul 03 2017 zaitorAATTopensuse.org- Update to version 1.8.0:
* libinput debug-gui is now installed by default unless disabled.
* The biggest change in this release is that libinput has switched to meson as primary build system.
* The second big change that is user-visible is that we have switched to a git-like approach to handling the helper tools for libinput. The previously installed tools of libinput-debug-events and libinput-list-devices are now \"libinput debug-events\" and \"libinput list-devices\", respectively. For the 1.8.x releases compat-wrappers are in place.
* Tablet stylus events now average across multiple events to stop the wobbly lines previously produced by libinput.
* On touchpads that provide MT_TOOL_PALM, i.e. in-kernel/in-firmware palm detection we now honor that bit and treat that touch as palm.
* Tapping has seen some fixes for previously broken timestamps in the multi-tap use-cases.
* The lid switch handling now uses a udev property to tell us whether a keyboard is external or internal. Together with some improved state tracking it should make the lid switch handling more reliable on devices where the lid switch is broken. The property is also used for disable-while-typing which makes it easier to special-case hardware.- Switch buildsystem to meson following upstream changes.- Following the above, add meson BuildRequires.- Add graphviz, pkgconfig(cairo), pkgconfig(glib-2.0) and pkgconfig(gtk+-3.0) BuildRequires, new dependencies (for debug-gui).- Pass tests=false to meson, not possible to run on the obs.- Following the above, drop pkgconfig(check) BuildRequires, no longer needed.- Drop xz BuildRequires: Not needed for any current openSUSE release.- Drop autoconf, automake and libtool #git BuildRequires, no longer needed when building with meson.- Add libinput-rpmlintrc, silence erronus rpmlint warnings.
* Fri Jun 09 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 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 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 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 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 button emulation.
* Wed Mar 08 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 01 2017 zaitorAATTopensuse.org- Add libinput-fix-crasher.patch: Fix a crash when requesting invalid mode group indices.
* Tue Feb 21 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 02 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 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 responsive cursor.
* The Asus X555LAB now has a smaller middle software button.
* Thu Dec 08 2016 zaitorAATTopensuse.org- Update to version 1.5.3:
* The HP Pavilion DM4 has a quirk added to disable (jumpy) multitouch events.
* 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 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 2016 jengelhAATTinai.de- Update to new upstream release 1.5.1
* Joysticks are now ignored. The code was in before but did not work correctly.
* A quirk for the YHP Compat 6910 was added.
* support for the new MOUSE_WHEEL_CLICK_COUNT udev property
* Thu Sep 15 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 added.
* 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 delays.
* 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 2016 jengelhAATTinai.de- Update to new upstream release 1.4.2
* touchpad: on a non-clickpad, reset the motion history on nfingers change
* 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 05 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 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 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 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 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
*60 series, it didn\'t work too well on other touchpads and resulted in jerky motion.
* An error message was generated for 3-finger swipes on some touchads that had gestures disabled, this is fixed now.
* Tue May 10 2016 jengelhAATTinai.de- Update to new upstream release 1.3.0
* touchpad: exclude Logitech touchpads from disable-while-typing
* Thu Apr 21 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 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 those buttons.
* 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 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 fixed now.
* 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 libinput_device_config_accel_get_default_profile() actually returns the default profile now.- Drop libinput-touchpad-fixes.patch: Fixed upstream.
* Thu Apr 07 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 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 tablet devices.
* Tue Mar 08 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 2016 zaitorAATTopensuse.org- Update to version 1.2.0:
* New stable branch, nothing significant has changed since version 1.1.902.
* Thu Feb 18 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 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 changes.- Add pkgconfig(libwacom) BuildRequires: New dependency for wacom support.
* Thu Feb 18 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 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 taps reliable.
* Tue Dec 22 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 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 version 8.1.- Changes from version 1.1.2:
* The 2-finger scroll threshold was reduced to 1mm which significantly reduces the delay users experienced when scrolling.
* 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 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 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 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 http://wayland.freedesktop.org/libinput/doc/latest/pointer-acceleration.html
* 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).- Drop libinput-touchpad-serial-synaptics-needto-fake-new-touches.patch We have kernel-4.2.x in Tumbleweed now.
* Mon Oct 26 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 process.
* 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 03 2015 mpluskalAATTsuse.com- Update to 1.0.1
* filter: fix constant acceleration for the X230
* Wed Aug 26 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 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 bugfixes.
* Tue Aug 04 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 configuration options: - libinput_device_config_dwt_is_available - libinput_device_config_dwt_set_enabled - libinput_device_config_dwt_get_enabled - libinput_device_config_dwt_get_default_enabled
* The second addition to the API is the ability to get the time in microseconds from an event: - libinput_event_gesture_get_time_usec - libinput_event_keyboard_get_time_usec - libinput_event_pointer_get_time_usec - libinput_event_touch_get_time_usec
* libinput switched internally to use µs for all timestamps which will help those devices that have a sampling frequency of more than 1000Hz.
* 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.- Add libinput-touchpad-serial-synaptics-needto-fake-new-touches.patch following upstreams advice for kernel 4.1.
* Sat Jul 18 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 interference
* 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 09 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 movement.
* 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 behaviour.
* 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: libinput_device_config_tap_set_drag_lock_enabled libinput_device_config_tap_get_drag_lock_enabled libinput_device_config_tap_get_default_drag_lock_enabled
* 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 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 larger touchpads.
* 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 experience.
* Note that license boilerplate code has changed - it now carries the MIT license as intended. See the commit log for bc9f16b40e for details.
* No API changes or additions.
* Sat Jun 06 2015 zaitorAATTopensuse.org- Update to version 0.17.0:
* The timeout for the tap-and-drag has been significantly reduced.
* 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 now supported.
* 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 06 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 required quirks.
* 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 middle button.
* Mon May 04 2015 zaitorAATTopensuse.org- Also set Version to 0.14.1, no need to have a diff there.
* Wed Apr 22 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 each device.
* 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 triple-click.
* Palm detection now avoids accidental tapping, see http://wayland.freedesktop.org/libinput/doc/latest/palm_detection.html
* 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 08 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 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 by default.
* Mon Feb 09 2015 zaitorAATTopensuse.org- 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:
* Sun Jan 25 2015 jengelhAATTinai.de- 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 pointer movement.
* 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 (\"fling\") scrolling.
* 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.
* Fri Dec 12 2014 jengelhAATTinai.de- 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 more details: http://who-t.blogspot.com/2014/12/building-a-dpi-database-for-mice.html
* 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 details.
* Devices can be asked to change their assigned logical seat at runtime.
* 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.
