libinput 1.24.0 is now available. It's been a while since the last release
so let's flush out what's on our branch. Only three notable topics:

On Apple touchpads, natural scrolling is now enabled by default and palm
detection is disabled - the touchpads are good enough that they don't need
our help.

Built-in tablet devices now always have touch arbitration enabled, so we no
longer need to add a quirk for each of them. And speaking of tablets:
the pressure offset limit for worn-out devices is now at 50% of the range.
Modern pens have a precise enough range that even worn out pen can
still provide satisfactory pressure sensitivity. This pressure offset is now
detected on worn-out pens that do not support distance.

Finally, where a relative device's rotation is 180 degrees (e.g.
a trackball used upside-down) we now flip the scroll wheel direction as well.

The rest of the changes is the usual mix of janitorial patches and
device-specific quirks.

As usual, the git shortlog is below.
