X.Org's Evdev Driver Shows Off Improvements
Peter Hutterer of Red Hat released an updated xf86-input-evdev driver on Monday for improving this common X.Org input driver.
Peter released xf86-input-evdev 188.8.131.52 as the first development snapshot towards the xf86-input-evdev 2.9 release. This new evdev 2.9 release focused upon switching to the libevdev library for support and also now utilizes server-managed FDs. The server-managed file descriptor handling is needed for the X.Org Server not running with root privileges.
More details on the queued up xf86-input-evdev 2.9 changes can be found via the mailing list announcement.
