Martin Gräßlin's latest focus on KDE development has been improving the input device support under KWin, particularly for when it's acting as a Wayland compositor.

As work building up for KDE Plasma 5.7, Martin has been working on providing input device configuration support via KWin and layered atop libinput. Also coming in Plasma 5.7 is a new debugging console for KWin.

More details on these latest input improvements for KWin / KDE on Wayland can be found via Martin's blog post.
