libevdev 1.10 is now avalilable. As already noted in the previous rcs, the
main changes are (copied from the annouce emails):

One new API, libevdev_disable_property(), which is the opposite of

A bunch of FreeBSD fixes that makes the uinput-related code-paths working.

Kernel 5.8 changed the SW_MAX define from 0x0f to 0x10. In some niche cases
this causes issues if libevdev and the software build against
different headers and thus end up with different values. So far I've only
had this happen in tests that specifically trigger those edge cases, so
consider this a general heads-up only, you shouldn't need to worry about.
Especially if you have been using libevdev_event_type_get_max() instead of
hardcoding SW_MAX.
