Release 0.10.0 of the new xf86-input-wacom driver is now available.
Note that this driver resides in my $HOME on freedesktop.org.


Since the initial announce email of this driver, we've been working on
property support and various cleanups in the driver. As usual, there aren't
enough hours in the day to get this done quicker but such is life.

This release is intended as a developer release as not all tools have been
ported to the new APIs yet (including the lack of decent HAL support). It
works, and is certainly good enough to start packaging and testing.

Future plans for this driver:
The 0.11.0 release will mark the end of the major cleanups, proper HAL
support and user-space tools ported over. This will be a full release
intended for end users.

Following that will be a short (?) test cycle before 1.0.0 is released,
marking the end of the fork transition.

      man: comma-separate authors.

      Remove property for speed level and accel settings.
      Remove STopN and SBottomN properties.
