While a few months back there was talk of libinput 1.0 coming after libinput 0.13~0.14, libinput 0.15 was released today as the latest major pre-1.0 update to this input handling library used by Wayland compositors, optionally as an X.Org input driver, and is starting to be integrated on Mir.

Libinput 0.15.0 brings one addition to the API, a new libinput-debug-events utility, a new udev property, various bug-fixes, button scrolling by default for more devices, and various other additions. The libinput-debug-events utility is intended for debugging libinput events directly and is sort of along the same concept as X.Org's evtest for debugging input events.

More details on libinput 0.15 can be found via this mailing list post by Red Hat's Peter Hutterer.
