The first (and likely last) release candidate for evdev 2.5.0 is available.
I plan to release 2.5.0 in time with the 1.9 server release that is just a
few days away. So this is the last chance to get some build fixes or other
criticial fixes in, anything else will have to wait until after the release.

No particularly exciting commits went in since the 2.4.0, evdev is quite
stable and boring - as it should be. So we have a few memory leak fixes, man
page updates, build system fixes and other misc stuff.

The only really new behaviour: middle mouse button emulation is off by
