libinput 1.6 is now available.

This release fixes the slow touchpad acceleration on touchpads with less
than 1000dpi, a missing call to normalized the deltas was the source of the
issue. The rest of this announce is just a re-print of the 1.6rc1:

The primary feature merged in this cycle is the new touchpad acceleration
code. See this link for a writeup
The summary is that the now touchpad better reflects finger motion but can
also go a lot faster than before, alleviating some concerns that the
touchpad is too slow.

The tap parameters have also been changed to provide for a more responsive
cursor, a writeup with more information is available here:
