A new release of libinput, 0.2, is available.

The most significant change since 0.1 is the introduction of the new
multi touch touchpad driver by Peter Hutterer, replacing the old one
from weston. While there are improvements already in the queue, please
test and file bugs you find.

Other than that, apart for bug fixes and documentation fixes there are
some API additions as well:

One can now get the seat wide button count at the time of an event using


One can now in a type safe manner get the base event given a type
specific event, for example


Also libinput_device_get_keys() returns -errno on error instead of -1.

The stability of the API is the same as the previous release, meaning
that it is yet to be promised.

You can download the source code by checking out the 0.2.0 tag from
git://anongit.freedesktop.org/wayland/libinput or just download the
