libinput 1.20rc1 (1.19.901) is now available.

This is the first release that has been made available on GitLab. I know
you are really excited about testing the release candidate and reporting
bugs upstream, but first make sure to update your scripts to point to
the new URLs [1].

This is what's new:

 - High-resolution scroll is more reliable thanks to the inclusion of new
 - Better handling of BTN_TOOL_PEN on top of BTN_TOOL_RUBBER on graphics
   tablets that trigger a kernel bug
 - libinput doesn't handle joysticks and gamepads. The detection algorithm
   has been improved to avoid tagging some of those devices as keyboards
 - Improved clickpad detection
 - New quirks and bug fixing

Thanks to all contributors :D
