The latest Wayland news this morning on top of several other events is the release of libinput 0.4.0 by Peter Hutterer.

The Red Hat input expert released this latest major update to the common input handling library that's used by Weston and other Wayland compositors for a shared library to handle input-related work in an uniform manner.

The API-breaking libinput 0.4.0 now has a per-context logging system, various bug-fixes, improvements for providing absolute event coordinates, a timer subsystem, and many other changes.
