A release candidate for synaptics 1.3 is now available.

Since the last snapshot two months ago a few patches went in again that
change the behaviour:
- the default speed has been increased again after quite a few complaints
  that the speed was too slow.
- the driver now defaults to two-finger emulation on if a valid width is
  reported by the kernel.
- coasting is now enabled by default, using a friction parameter to stop
  coasting after a bit.

I think we're in good shape for 1.3 and I don't expect any patches other
than minor build fixes or similar. Larger features are for 1.4 again, which
hopefully isn't a long way off.

Chris Bagwell (7):
      Make default checks for x, y, w, and p separate.
      Expose pressure support in capabilities property.
      Expose width support in capabilites properity.
      Document Capabilities property additions in man
      Default to 2-finger emulation when HW supports it
      Align EmulateTwoFinger* docs to current behavior.
      Reset X/Y hist on multi finger transition to fix jumps

Patrick Curran (1):
      Added "friction physics" so coasting can stop on its own.

Peter Hutterer (6):
      Remove one leftover xcalloc.
      synclient: don't print "missing" if a property doesn't exist.
      Up the precision of MaxSpeed and AccelFactor log output.
      Increase the default acceleration factor.
      Enable coasting by default with a value of 20.
