I spotted this in my mail the other day, I assumed the daily comparison would pick it up. Just noticed it again while scrolling through my mailbox.
Date: Thu, 22 Oct 2020 15:14:51 +0200 From: Greg KH <gregkh@…> To: linux-usb@…, linux-kernel@… Subject: usbutils 013 release Message-ID: <20201022131451.GA1779379@…>
It's been a long time, and there have been a number of tiny bugfixes in the usbutils package backing up, as well as one major issue finally fixed that had been reported a lot, so it's time for a new release.
One other "major" change is we now trust sysfs to have the string values for the vendor/product descriptors, instead of having to ask the device directly for them. That should save a bit of USB bandwidth, but for containers that have sysfs blocked off, this might cause some problems. If so, please let me know.
Tarballs can be found on kernel.org here:
Or the github/kernel.org repo also have the updated trees:
and the full shortlog is below.
