libinput 1.19.1 is now available.

A new feature is detecting (and working around) buggy devices that claim to
have a high-resolution scroll wheel but don't actually send events. This
shouldn't happen too often with real hardware but will be quite common with
uinput devices.

We now assume any non-bluetooth touchpad is internal. Previously USB touchpads
were sometimes internal, sometimes external - we now default to internal
except for a few well-known external ones. This should make DWT work a bit
better on affected devices.

Finally, the jumping cursor warning has been reduced once again. In the vast
majority of cases this isn't something the user can do anything about, and the
libinput papering over the jump is correct behaviour. That means we don't need
to annoy the user with frequent warnings.
