libinput 1.1.7 is out, with a bugfix for disable-while-typing and some laptops with ALPS touchpads. If you updated to 1.1.6, you should update to 1.1.7

libinput 1.1.6 is now available. And the most visible change is that for slow motion, two-finger scrolling and touchpad pointer motion is less jumpy now. Do update, it does make a difference.

I'm happy to announce that I've just merged the tablet-support branch into libinput master. This is work that +Lyude Wolf started during the 2014 GSoC and several moons later we're now happy with the API and consider it ready.

Thus, libinput 1.2 will have graphics tablet tool support. Wayland and Weston aren't far behind, and +Carlos Garnacho is already breathing down my neck because he wants to demo the clutter/mutter/GTK bits :)

I wrote a short post regarding X.Org the project vs the X.Org Foundation.
 
A welcomed clarification on the difference between the X.org project and the X.Org Foundation. Thanks +Peter Hutterer!
In light of recent general confusion between X.Org the technical project and X.Org the Foundation here's a little overview. X.Org the project X.Org is the current reference implementation of the X Window System which has been...

I fear Google's "I'm not a robot" verification. Losing humanity is quite daunting.

Plus, I have plans for this weekend.

You're in a desert walking along in the sand when all of the sudden you look down. You look down and you see a tortoise, Leon, it's crawling towards you. You reach down, you flip the tortoise over on its back Leon.

The GNU Compiler Collection is making some great progress. Playing with the current development version I cannot wait till GCC6 is officially out. The new warnings look beautiful and are more useful because of the range tracking. Just found an embarrassing bug thanks to the new -Wmisleading- ...

What Have We Learned From This Open Source Project?

http://taskwarrior.org/docs/advice.html

Many good points to consider
What Have We Learned From This Open Source Project? Here is the collected wisdom that we have gained from running the Taskwarrior project for nine years. It has been rewarding, enjoyable, and sometimes frustrating. We learned a lot about users and Open Source expectations.

+Bryce Harrington released the Wayland 1.10 beta today. Amongst the new features are scroll sources as part of the wayland protocol. And a client that supports scroll sources can provide per-widget kinetic scrolling under Wayland. And as usual, +Carlos Garnacho is hot on the heels with the clutter/mutter/GTK integration for scroll sources, so expect this to come to your Wayland desktops in the near future.

For more info on scroll sources see this post here:

An answer to the quite common question "Is Wayland ready yet?"

http://who-t.blogspot.com.au/2016/01/is-wayland-ready-yet.html
This question turns up a lot, on the irc channel, mailing lists, forums, your local Stammtisch and at weddings. The correct answer is: this is the wrong question. And I'll explain why in this post. Note that I'll be skipping ...

Yes, but since not everyone cares about every feature, YMMV depending on what you want to do. It may be ready for your use-case but not mine, and it may never be ready for some third use-case that is explicitly not supported anymore.

I am glad to be able to share what I hope to be the wacom-next driver for Wacom tablets under linux.

I have been working the past 2 years at converting this old USB driver into a HID one (this was achieved in kernel v3.17). Now, we are working on forward compatibility by sideloading external firmwares that will teach the kernel how to handle new Wacom devices. Nothing upstream now, but an exciting new project I had in my backlog since I started cleaning up the wacom.ko driver.
