This release adds support for tablet tool devices. Now, this support should
be taken with a grain of salt, it works differently to the xf86-input-wacom
driver and thus some capability differences can be observed:
First, pad support is still missing, i.e. you cannot use the buttons on the
tablet bit itself.

There are no specific configuration options just yet, and the way we are
aiming for libinput support, many of the options you are used to may not
exist ever.

The most important part: tool support is handled dynamically. As a tool is
first brought into proximity, a new X device is created for that tool only
(no multiplexing of tools through the same X device). Clients may expect a
static list of tools, so for those you will need to bring the tool into
proximity before starting the client.

In short, do not use this driver for tablets on production workstations yet.
