[ANNOUNCE] libinput 0.18.0

A new release of libinput, 0.18.0, is now available. 

Touchpad handling has improved filters for erroneous small movements.
Palm detection in the edge scrolling zone has been disabled, it previously
caused unreliable edge scrolling on larger touchpads.

Alps touchpads now always provide a config option for middle button
emulation - these devices don't know whether a middle button is available,
providing the option (and defaulting to emulation on) allows users to 
have a better out-of-the-box experience.

Note that license boilerplate code has changed - it now carries the MIT
license as intended. See the commit log for bc9f16b40e for details.

No API changes or additions.

As usual, the git shortlog is below.
