Description

New minor version

libinput 1.6 is now available.

This release fixes the slow touchpad acceleration on touchpads with less
than 1000dpi, a missing call to normalized the deltas was the source of the
issue. The rest of this announce is just a re-print of the 1.6rc1:

The primary feature merged in this cycle is the new touchpad acceleration
code. See this link for a writeup
https://who-t.blogspot.com.au/2016/12/libinput-touchpad-pointer-acceleration.html
The summary is that the now touchpad 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, a writeup with more information is available here:
https://who-t.blogspot.com.au/2016/12/libinput-touchpad-tap-analysis.html

There has been a fair bit of cleanup and rework, many of the minor
bugfixes and device-specific quirks have already made it into the 1.5.x
releases.
