While libinput 0.16 was recently released, Libinput 0.17.0 has been released just a few days later to fix some outstanding issues.

Peter Hutterer of Red Hat made the surprising libinput 0.17 release this afternoon. Libinput 0.17.0 features fixes for "three rather prominent issues" including the timeout for the tap-and-drag, slow mouse movement, and basic thumb detection was added for click finger behavior. In total there's just over a dozen changes with libinput 0.17, but the three fixes are the most prominent changes made since Monday.
