    in particular, less pinch gestures being picked up as two-finger scrolling
    Ohh yeah. If this works now it would be SO good. It's so damn annoying to try to zoom a webpage or picture and jump all over it.

      The gestures fix is very important for Gnome 40 users - at least on my touchpad it fixes cases of very erratic workspace switching etc.

        OK Tried it. No change for me. It's still bugging out instead of zooming in. Might not be on libinputs end. Who knows.

            What is your problem with redhat and gnome devs? Yes, GNOME itself has a rather flawed design philosophy in my opinion. But the tech that they come up with is widely used by a lot more projects than just GNOME, and substantially improves the lives of users of basically any DE. Especially true for libinput, which is pretty much universally the input stack used on both X and Wayland compositors.

              I think you misunderstood. 144Hz is a pro-Gnome troll who copy and pastes that message into every article, claiming that everything good about Linux is done by Gnome devs.

                I just wish my touchpad would stop clicking random places and shifting focus when I'm typing.

                (Yes, I tried to fix it: Raising the handrests a bit above the touchpad using cardboard and tape. It was only a conceptual success: They fell off pretty quickly and the glue left dirty stripes on the screen.)

                    His problem is that they haven't created a statue of him outside of Red Hat's and GNOME's HQ's yet.

                    Seems like you're new here (Jan 2021 registration date), so just so you know: he's an extreme pro-GNOMEr and, at times, troll.
