[ANNOUNCE] libinput 0.12.0

A new release of libinput, 0.12.0, is now available. libinput's API and ABI
are now stable.

Note that this release is incompatible with libinput 0.11 and earlier, the
previously deprecated function libinput_device_has_button() was removed and
the soname has been bumped for one final time. No functions were added since
the 0.11.0 release.

Internally, we had fixes to correctly handle Protocol A multitouch devices,
a bunch of documentation updates. Buttonless touchpads are now supported
(e.g. the touch portion of the Wacom Intuos tablets), on those touchpads
tapping is enabled by default.

The touchpad code was changed to support gestures internally, the gesture
API itself is not part of this release. It will, most likely, be part of the
1.0 release.

The full commit shortlog is below.
