Shameless plug: I've recently published the 1.1 release of libTISCH, our multitouch & multi-pointer development platform. Source code is available at http://sf.net/projects/tisch/ (http://sourceforge.net/projects/tisch/) while PPA packages for Ubuntu 10.04 & 9.10 are at https://launchpad.net/~floe/+archive/libtisch (https://launchpad.net/%7Efloe/+archive/libtisch/+index) .

I'm posting this here because libTISCH is, to the best of my knowledge, one of the very first GUI development libraries to natively support XInput 2 with the new Xserver in Lucid.

This means simultaneous input with multiple mice! You do need a patched version of FreeGLUT for this to work, but I've provided suitable binary packages in the PPA. The patch itself is part of the source distribution and is also available directly on the SF.net site.

If you manage to spare some minutes and give libTISCH a try, I'd be glad to hear about your opinions.
