The xf86-input-synaptics 188.8.131.52 development release was tagged today by Peter and with it comes several key changes:
- Lots of work in this new X.Org driver version is for supporting new Lenovo Touchpads... In particular, the Lenovo T440, T540, X240, Helix, and Yoga laptops are now supported by this X.Org input driver.
- The evdev baci-end on Linux now uses the libevdev library for communication. Using the libevdev 1.1-rc1+ library is recommended for best results.
- Changes to TouchpadOff behavior to now allow physical button clicks.
- Support for mtdev was dropped.
