The X Input Extension protocol version 2.2 is now available.
The main feature added in this version is support for multitouch devices
and the ability for clients to register for and receive touch events.
Multitouch support in XI 2.2 aims to
- support a dynamic number of simultaneous touch points,
- support devices that are both multitouch and traditional pointer devices,
- allow touchpoints to be either grouped together or handled separately,
- be backwards-compatible to pre-XI 2.2 clients through emulation of XI 2.x/XI 1.x and core
For a description of the new features see the following posts:
Many thanks to all who have contributed to this protocol.
