HARDWARE --
Yesterday when writing about libinput 0.21 being released and libinput 1.0 appearing around the corner, the forum discussion quickly turned into a matter of libinput's pointer acceleration support.

Fortunate for those that have a gripe with libinput's pointer acceleration, Peter Hutterer posted a set of sixteen patches today that cleans up its support.

A number of the patches fix "the current mess of different speeds and add a bit of clarity... [two of the patches] should help greatly here," Peter noted. The other patches further split up the pointer acceleration code as a step towards eventually allowing per-device custom processing.

More details on these new pointer acceleration patches for libinput can be found on the Wayland-devel list.
