Peter Hutterer announced the release today of libinput 1.1.902 as the latest development snapshot of this input handling library becoming very common to Wayland / Mir / X11 systems.

This libinput 1.2 development release has an API change to report the tilt API data in degrees rather than a normalized value range. This builds on other work in the libinput 1.2 series as outlined in this earlier article.

More details on the new libinput 1.2 test release via the release announcement.
