Summary: libinput-1.12.0libinput-1.12.1

Now version 1.12.1

libinput 1.12 is now available. Since the rc3 a few more notable changes
went in:

The tablet axis smoothing previously caused some axes to change value even
though the "axis has changed" bit wasn't set in the event. This is fixed
now.

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.

All in all, this ended up being the usual 3 month cycle but with well over
340 patchsets. The biggest and most noticable changes are the switch from
hwdb entries to a .ini style quirks configuration system, prettier and more
user-friendly documentation, and new trackpoint acceleration .

A writeup of all other 1.12 features is available here:

git tag: 1.12.0

1.12.1:

libinput 1.12.1 is now available

This is a stable release, so no new features, just a few fixes, mostly
related to the new quirks system. 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), this is fixed now.

Besides all the above, the usual set of fixes, minor improvements, etc.

As usual, the git shortlog is below.
