libusbxThe 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.
