libusb-1.0.9 released and libusbx


libusb-1.0.9 has now been released on 2012-04-20, 2 years after version 1.0.8.

This can now end my blog serie about libusb:


The other good news is that this libusb-1.0.9 release is linked to the released of a fork of libusb called libusbx.

libusbx is the source code of libusb but with active maintainers. libusbx has already made 4 releases in 3 months (1.0.9, 1.0.10, 1.0.11 and 1.0.12).

Many Linux distributions have already switched to libusbx or are planning to do so.


The way to go is to use libusbx.
