A new release of libinput, 0.4, is available.

There are a number of API breaks in this version, every user of libinput
will need some changes, sorry.

* The logging system now works per-context instead of per library and
  dropped the userdata argument.
* libinput_destroy() was changed to libinput_unref(), plus you now have
  libinput_ref() too
* A couple of renames of constants for API consistency:
* Triggered by the logging changes, creation of udev seats is now different.
  Instead of libinput_udev_create_for_seat() use:
      libinput = libinput_udev_context_create(...)
      libinput_udev_assign_seat(libinput, "seat name");

Other changes include:
* A couple of bugfixes, mainly in the touchpad code
* Absolute event coordinates are now provided in mm, not device-specific
coordinates. This doesn't change anything for callers using the respective
_get_transformed() function.
* ref/unref() is now available for the libinput context itself.
