This release supports the X server 1.19.
* Fri Oct 28 2016 email@example.com
- Update to version 22.214.171.124:
+ Remove upstream patch U_conf-rename-to-70-synaptics.conf.patch
+ Adapt n_xf86-input-synaptics-wait.diff
* Mon May 23 2016 firstname.lastname@example.org
- replaced n_conf-rename-to-70-synaptics.conf.patch with upstreamed
patch U_conf-rename-to-70-synaptics.conf.patch (boo #979554)
* Thu May 19 2016 email@example.com
* bump up synaptics driver to 70, so it get's preferred over
libinput, which was dropped down to 060 (boo #979554)
- adjusted n_xf86-input-synaptics-default-tap.diff,
- removed Supplements: xorg-x11-server, so the driver no longer
gets installed by default
* Fri Nov 13 2015 firstname.lastname@example.org
- Add gpg signature
- Make building more verbose
* Mon Nov 02 2015 email@example.com
- Update to version 1.8.3
* With Gabriele's fix, the order of fingers on the touchpad doesn't
matter for two-finger scrolling. Previously, only one of the
fingers would trigger scroll events. See
* Fri Jul 31 2015 firstname.lastname@example.org
- Ignore absence of udevadm, it won't be present in the build env.
* Tue Mar 31 2015 email@example.com
- Update to version 1.8.2:
* One significant change here: an artificial delay is now used
between the button events of a doubletap. Some applications
previously dropped the events because they had the same
timestamp, with the delay this should now work fine.
* Sun Sep 21 2014 firstname.lastname@example.org
- Update to version 1.8.1:
A couple of coverity-induced fixes, the
top software buttons are now 15% and better detection of two-finger
taps. A couple of misc other fixes, the only oddity in there is a
fix for clock drift - if you had clickpad clicks delayed by a
second or so after a number of suspend/resume cycles then you may
want to upgrade to this version.

- Update to version 1.8.0
* final release; changes since 126.96.36.199:
+ conf: drop the PNPID matching from the fdi file
* Wed May 07 2014 firstname.lastname@example.org
- Update to version 188.8.131.52
* The second snapshot for synaptics 1.8 is now available. Note
that there are are two significant changes:
- the event device is not grabbed anymore. In some setups this
may lead to duplicate events but where it does you're really
better off using an InputClass instead of an InputDevice
section in your xorg.conf.
- the secondary software button area (i.e. the top software
buttons on the Lenovo *40 series) is now automatically
enabled based on the INPUT_PROP_TOPBUTTONPAD property,
slated for kernel 3.15. No more PNPID matching in the
snippets, which didn't work without a kernel patch anyway.
If you can't update the kernel, use Option

- Update to version 184.108.40.206:
- libevdev support:
The evdev backend on Linux now uses libevdev. We recommend
to use libevdev 1.1-rc1 or later as the synaptics driver is
very likely to trigger SYN_DROPPED and we've fixed a bunch
of issues in libevdev 1.1.
- Support for T440, T540, X240, Helix, Yoga:
The bulk of the changes is to support this set of Lenovo
touchpads. These touchpads don't have separate physical
buttons for the trackstick and need to be emulated as
software-button by the driver.
- TouchpadOff behaviour change:
Synaptics has a property "Synaptics Off" to disable events.
Previously, this disabled any event from the touchpad.
Now, physical button clicks are allowed even when the
touchpad is disabled.
- mtdev was dropped:
There are no touchpad drivers in the kernel tree that
use protocol A, so using mtdev is just a computationally
expensiv and memory-wasting noop.
- As per upstream change, swap pkgconfig(mtdev) BuildRequires for
pkgconfig(evdev) >= 220.127.116.11
- Rebase n_xf86-input-synaptics-wait.diff for this release
* Wed Mar 12 2014 firstname.lastname@example.org
- Update to version 1.7.4:
One fix: closing the fd again if the device cannot be enabled
properly, and two reverts: scrollbuttons and circular pad
support are making a comeback. Apparently there are still a
few laptops out there that require either feature.
* Thu Feb 20 2014 email@example.com
- n_xf86-input-synaptics-xorg.conf.d_snippet.diff: disable
"HorizEdgeScroll" instead of setting "HorizScrollDelta" to 0
- adapted n_xf86-input-synaptics-default-tap.diff
* Mon Jan 13 2014 firstname.lastname@example.org
- Update to version 1.7.3
* Just one fix for the stable branch, fixing the #define for
server 1.15 (and newer). A bad ABI detection check enabled
driver scaling on input ABI 20, causing sluggish pointer
* Mon Dec 09 2013 email@example.com
- Update to version 1.7.2:
Three patches on top of the previous release, the first of which
enables proper driver scaling when running against new servers. If
you're using the server from git, both driver and server would
scale, resulting in a sluggish touchpad.
* Mon Dec 02 2013 firstname.lastname@example.org
* xf86-input-synaptics-xorg.conf.d_snippet.diff ->
* xf86-input-synaptics-wait.diff ->
* xf86-input-synaptics-default-tap.diff ->
to indicate that these are SUSE specific patches.

- Update to version 1.7.1:
First stable update to synaptics 1.7 is now available.
- User-visible changes:
+ soft button areas may overlap on the edge, so a configuration of
e.g.middle button 33%-66% and right button 66%-0 is now valid.
+ man page fix to avoid confusion between 0 and 0% on button configuration
This release also includes the fix for stack smash caused by Apple
* Tue Apr 02 2013 firstname.lastname@example.org
- Update to version 1.7.0:
This release has seen a bunch of purges in the hope that it will make the
code more maintainable. Most of the features dropped are expected to have
few or no users, or hardware that hasn't been around for ages.
Most other fixes have found their way into the 1.6 branch already.
