libinput 1.12.3 is now available

One new feature which may be a bit controversial to introduce into a stable
release: the ability to disable any event code through a quirks entry.

There are quite a few devices that require event codes to be disabled to
make them work correctly (e.g. the Logitech Marble Mouse needs to disable
the middle mouse button). This was previously done with a model tag in the
quirks and the matching code in libinput itself.
The drawback was that it required a libinput update/rebuild with no
immediate workaround. Furthermore it usually bottlenecked on me to write the

The solution is a new quirk "AttrEventCodeDisable" does what you'd expect
but is a simple text-file change. For example, the Logitech Marble
Mouse now uses:

And here's a reminder that the quirks are not a public API and subject to
change: *ding ding*

Aside from the above, the Lenovo x230t doesn't disable the keyboard in
tablet mode anymore and we've updated the Gitlab CI to use Fedora 29.

As usual, the git shortlog is below.
