The second RC for libinput 1.7 is now available. While I have your

We switched to pressure-based touch detection on compatible touchpads but
the pressure thresholds can differ between various touchpad manufacturers
and even models. We've already merged elantech-specific ones, and have bugs
open for apple [https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=96409]
and cyapa [https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=100122]
So let's make a deal: you test this now and report a bug rather than abusing
me later when the 1.7 release is out.

As for this particular rc: a big cleanup in how we log messages, they're all
now prefixed and easier to filter and identify. A crasher fix for tablet
pad modes (in 1.6.3 as well) and a reduction of the minimum size to enable
horizontal edge scrolling. The software button state handling was fixed for
the new pressure-based handling (btw, you should test this rc!), before we
got some misdetection of buttons if the pressure didn't immediately go above
the threshold.

All in all, not too exciting. Did I mention you should test this one?
