xf86-input-libinput 0.16 is now available. This release fixes a
long-standing issue with mixed devices that expose a pointer and a keyboard
interface at the same time. X requires a strict separation between pointers
and keyboards, these devices were usually initialized as pointers and
exhibited some keyboard functionality issues (e.g. XKB layouts didn't get
applied correctly). With this release, the xorg libinput driver splits such
devices into multiple X devices, one for the keyboard and one for the
pointer, routing the events as necessary and thus fixing those issues.

Peter Hutterer (13):
      Plug two memory leaks
      Set the device to NULL after unref
      Remove unused server_fds list
      Don't fail DEVICE_CLOSE
      Unref the libinput context on pre_init failure
      Split type_name detection out into a helper function
      Copy the device capabilities to the X driver struct
      Add a helper function for the driver context initialization
      Split mixed pointer/keyboard devices into two separate X devices
      Revert "Split mixed pointer/keyboard devices into two separate X devices"
      Split mixed pointer/keyboard devices into two separate X devices
      Drain the fd after opening
