libinput 1.12 is now available. Since the rc3 a few more notable changes
went in:

The tablet axis smoothing previously caused some axes to change value even
though the "axis has changed" bit wasn't set in the event. This is fixed

The delta for tablet axis events is now always 0 for tip up/down events.
This works around the pointer jumps seen on some devices when the tip is

The fuzz handling (i.e. hysteresis auto-detection) was restored after being
accidentally removed during the hwdb->quirks rework.

All in all, this ended up being the usual 3 month cycle but with well over
340 patchsets. The biggest and most noticable changes are the switch from
hwdb entries to a .ini style quirks configuration system, prettier and more
user-friendly documentation, and new trackpoint acceleration .

A writeup of all other 1.12 features is available here:
