libinput 1.6rc2, mostly just more test cases
sudo dnf upgrade --advisory=FEDORA-2017-a7d615e6f6
This update has been submitted for testing by whot.
This update has obsoleted libinput-1.5.902-1.fc25, and has inherited its bugs and notes.
Fixes the issue I had with the previous libinput update (1.5.901-1.fc25) that caused my mouse speed to be way too high.
This update still seems to change mouse accel (compared by switching between the working 1.5 release and this update just to make sure it wasn't change bias), although I think I'd have a hard time adequately explaining the difference.
That said, this is a vast improvement over the current situation (a small upward adjustment to touchpad speed gets back most of the old behavior), and would be worth pushing out just for that.
Argh, I obviously meant to give karma there, not take it away, will try to figure out how to delete my comment. :P
This solves my issue with the mouse speed being way too slow after the previous libinput update, this is definitely much better than the status quo.

ever since libinput 1.5.901-1 the touchpad on the Dell XPS 13 is waaay too slow and uncomfortable to use. This update improves this, but only very slightly. Before these updates (the 1.6 series), I never needed to get my hand off the touchpad when moving the cursor across the screen. Now I often reach the edge of the touchpad before my cursor reaches the destination, and I have to lift my hand, put it on the touchpad again, and only then continue moving the cursor.
I think that at least for the Dell XPS 13 (which has a very good touchpad, from a hardware standpoint) the behavior should be the same as it was in libinput 1.5.3
Touchpad speed has been drastically improved over previous build (1.5.901-1), but is still too slow, even on maximum setting.
Also, it seems to randomly not register approximately 1/2 of my tap-"clicks".
I agree with Elad — while this is an improvement over the previous build, version 1.5.3 was still much better.
This is on a Dell XPS 9360 (Kaby Lake) with HiDPI running Fedora 25.
BTW: Here's the bug where taps to not register:
(Regression in libinput 1.6, including this build — please note that it worked perfectly fine in 1.5)

Submitting this will the tests again.
