libinput 1.15.1 is now available. No large changes here, some improvements
to the documentation and the debugging/recording tools.

In terms of user-visible fixes: a specific event sequence involving
proximity timeouts and eraser buttons could previously trigger invalid
proximity in/out sequences, leading to a crash in the clients. This is fixed
now. And ALPS touchpads now automatically reduce the slot-count based on the
number of actually provided fingers. The kernel hardcodes 5 but we don't
always get 5 finger locations, so now we adjust this down to match.
