libinput 1.26.0 is now available. It's been a while since the last release
but we have a few notable changes in here:

Touchpads can now configure a clickfinger button map, so you can change
whether two- or three-finger click means a right or middle click.
See libinput_device_config_click_set_clickfinger_button_map

Tablet pads now have an API for relative dials. These are typically wheel-like
(e.g. Huion Inspiroy 2) or ring-like (e.g. Huion Inspiroy Dial 2) physical devices
that send REL_WHEEL and REL_HWHEEL. libinput now provides these via
libinput_event_tablet_pad_get_dial_delta_v120() in much the same manner as the
v120-based scroll wheel API.

A new configuration option for tablet tools allow reducing the available
logical range. This is useful for users that want the tool to register only
when some physical pressure value is reached, or to reduce the maximum amount
of pressure needed to reach the logical maximum pressure. See
libinput_tablet_tool_config_pressure_range_set() and friends.

Tablet tools can now use BTN_STYLUS3 too and tablet pad strip support should
now work for non-Wacom devices, where the kernel driver implements it.

Huion tablets (well, and all vendors that use the 256C vendor id) now have a fallback
resolution set. This is going to be wrong on most devices but at least it will
make those tablets work out of the box, instead of failing with the
"missing tablet capabilities: resolution" log message.

And of course a varied assortment of device specific quirks and fixes.
