[ANNOUNCE] libinput 0.6.0

A new release of libinput, 0.6, is available.

This release has some API changes, namely:

 * libinput_device_get_keys is deprecated.

Initial device state can now always be assumed to be that no keys are

 * libinput_device_calibrate is both changed and deprecated.

Calibration of touch devices has been changed to be using a normalized
calibration matrix. While libinput_device_calibrate has undergone this
change, it has also been deprecated and replaced with a configuration
API. See the documentation for the following more information how to
manually set the calibration matrix.


The implicit reading of the udev parameter WL_CALIBRATION has been
removed in favor for LIBINPUT_CALIBRATION_MATRIX. The usage of
WL_CALIBRATION was broken because the translation part of its matrix was
in pixels which is a metric not available in libinput. The new
calibration matrix avoids this by having the translation be normalized to
the dimension of the device dimensions. See the documentation for details
about how to use the LIBINPUT_CALIBRATION_MATRIX udev parameter.

Other changes include fixes to generic pointer devices and touchpads, as
well as various clean ups and bug fixes.
