This is the final release of version 0.38.0. No changes were made since the RC release, so the previous release notes follow:

This release makes a number of notable changes to the gesture handling code. Chief among these is that touchscreen devices will no longer use the in-driver gesture recognizer by default. The desktop environment will instead be responsible for handling any touchscreen gestures. This change was made to improve the experience by allowing the use of richer desktop gestures. Users of the GNOME environment will now be able to make use of the gestures described in 1. Users of other desktop environments are recommended to install and configure the Touchegg 2 tool. It is of course also possible to instead create an xorg.conf.d configuration file that re-enables in-driver gestures. Touchpad devices are not subject to this change and will continue to use the in-driver gesture recgonizer for the time being.

In addition to this change, a number of improvements have been made to the in-driver gesture recognizer which should result in smoother scroll and zoom interactions with windows. The initial delay to recognize a gesture should be eliminated, and the amount your fingers have to move should now be more comfortable across a wider range of devices.
