We haven't had any change requests to the 2.1 protocol changes and the 2.2
changes are about to be done soon too. Time for a release. 

inputproto contains the protocol specification and header files for the 
X Input Extension. This release introduces two new features:
- smooth scrolling support allows devices to send scroll events through
  valuator information instead of the traditional button 4-7 clicks.
- new raw event behaviour allows clients to listen to raw events from a
  device even if that device is currently grabbed

For a description of the changes, see
