Summary: Input device and event processing library
libinput is a library that handles input devices for display servers and
other applications that need to directly deal with input devices.

It provides device detection, device handling, input device event
processing and abstraction so minimize the amount of custom input
code the user of libinput need to provide the common set of
functionality that users expect.






* Thu Apr 19 2018
  - 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
  - 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
    * 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
  - 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
  - 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
  - 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
* Tue Feb 13 2018
  - 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
    * 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
  - Remove 0001-evdev-add-a-quirk-to-disable-debouncing-on-the-MS-Na.patch
    (included upstream)
* Thu Feb 08 2018
  - Add 0001-evdev-add-a-quirk-to-disable-debouncing-on-the-MS-Na.patch
* Thu Dec 14 2017
  - 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
  - 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
  - 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
  - Update to version 1.9.1:
    * Stop a crash when a lid was opened/closed multiple times while
    * 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
  - Use autosetup macro.
  - Stop rm'ing la files, no longer exists as we are using meson
* Wed Oct 25 2017
  - 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
    * 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
    * 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
  - 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
* Thu Sep 07 2017
  - 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
  - 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
  - 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
  - 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
    * 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
  - 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
  - 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
  - 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
  - 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
  - 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
  - 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
  - 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
  - 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
  - Add libinput-fix-crasher.patch: Fix a crash when requesting
    invalid mode group indices.
* Tue Feb 21 2017
  - 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
  - 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
  - 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
  - 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
  - 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
  - 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
  - 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 2016
  - 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
  - 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
  - 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
  - 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
  - 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
  - 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 *50 and *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
  - Update to new upstream release 1.3.0
    * touchpad: exclude Logitech touchpads from disable-while-typing
* Thu Apr 21 2016
  - 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
  - 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
  - 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
  - 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
  - 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
  - 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
  - Update to version 1.2.0:
    * New stable branch, nothing significant has changed since
      version 1.1.902.
* Thu Feb 18 2016
  - 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
  - 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 2016
  - 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
  - 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
  - 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
  - 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
    * BTN_TOOL_* 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
  - 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
  - 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
  - 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).
  - Drop
    We have kernel-4.2.x in Tumbleweed now.
* Mon Oct 26 2015
  - 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 03 2015
  - Update to 1.0.1
    * filter: fix constant acceleration for the X230
* Wed Aug 26 2015
  - 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
    * libinput 1.0
* Fri Aug 21 2015
  - 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 04 2015
  - 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
    following upstreams advice for kernel 4.1.
* Sat Jul 18 2015
  - 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 09 2015
  - 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 2015
  - 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
    * 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
  - 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
      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
  - 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
  - Also set Version to 0.14.1, no need to have a diff there.
* Wed Apr 22 2015
  - 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
    * 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 08 2015
  - 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
  - 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
  - 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:
    * libinput_device_config_click_get_methods
    * libinput_device_config_click_get_method
    * libinput_device_config_click_get_default_method
    * libinput_device_config_click_set_method
* Sun Jan 25 2015
  - 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
  - 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:
    * 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.
