Please update that :) Furthermore. I'd need a list of API symbols and
functions with the server version they got introduced.

Specifically, since when exist:

but also the property labels.

https://www.x.org/wiki/Development/Documentation/Multitouch/ says 2.2,
does that mean, xserver minimum version 1.6?

It'd make development very much easier if there'd be just one
documentation page with this kept up to date. It really could be clearer.

thanks for getting back at me!
