Updating controller mappings to latest SDL version #1594
Originally #1591, which started to have Git issues
Fixes #3708. I can now use my Xbox One Bluetooth controller on a Mac with SDL 2.0.6+.
Note that this will use different mappings depending on if the linked SDL version is <= 2.0.4, 2.0.5, or >= 2.0.6. We kept this behavior because Ubuntu Xenial uses 2.0.4 and we didn't want to lock that out. Some controllers in newer mappings, like the Xbox One Bluetooth controller, are not present in older mappings.

If you wanted a controller to test stuff like this with, I would seriously buy one for you :-)
It depends. It's great sometimes and is worse than a regular XInput one in other situations. In most of the situations where it beats a standard XInput controller, a mouse would beat the steam controller. There's also the problem of the massive rigmarole to set it up per application through Steam. All that said, it's my default controller when I decide to use a controller. Oh, also, it sips batteries so slowly that it makes my other wireless controllers look terrible.
