We've had enough changes since version 1.2 that a tarball is warranted, so
here it is: the first snapshot of what will eventually become synaptics
We've seen a lot of autotool cleanups and they constitute a large part of
the changes. This also means we require util-macros 1.8.
Some general fixes, the most important of which have found their way into
the 1.2.x stable releases.
The most visible feature change is the new pointer accel mechanism. Since
the server got its new accel methods, synaptics was accelerated twice - once
in the driver, once in the server. This lead to a really fast and sometimes
confusing pointer behaviour. This is fixed now but it does lead to a slower
pointer. We'll be trying to find some middle ground there, possibly
following the motto of "one size doesn't quite fit anyone".
The driver installs the xorg.conf.d snippet as well, assigning itself to all
touchpads by default. At this point I'd like to point out again that
"synaptics" is merely a historical name. Under Linux, this is the generic
touchpad driver for all touchpads that are supported by the kernel.
