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 here:

Or the github/ repo also have the updated trees:

and the full shortlog is below.
