6 version 3.0
7 - remove need for debugfs/usbdevfs/usbfs file entirely, rely only on
8 sysfs now. This removes the need to run the program as root, which
9 should have never happened.
10 - added SPDX identifiers and .spdx file to make packaging easier for
13 version 2.2
14 - security issue fixed with polkit (CVE-2022-23220).
15 - copyright year fixups and updates
16 - tooltip added to explain red devices have no attached drivers
18 version 2.1
19 - build warnings fixed
20 - increased max number of interfaces allowed, fixing problem with some
21 USB sound devices.
22 - autogen.sh added
23 - LICENSES directory added and license moved to it
24 - SPDX license headers added
25 - policykit support added
26 - usbview.desktop: Add desktop file.
27 - usbview_icon.svg: Convert xpm bitmap icon into a scalable svg icon.
28 - configure.in configure.ac: Rename former to latter.
29 - autgen.sh, config.h.in: Remove in favour of "autoreconf --install".
30 - configure.ac, Makefile.am:
31 - Autotools tweaks and normalization.
32 - Don't include CPPFLAGS in AM_CPPFLAGS.
33 - Remove references to unset GLIB_CFLAGS and GLIB_LIBS in Makefile.am
34 - Reorder clauses to usual order.
35 - Remove obsolete comments.
36 - Add m4 quoting to configure.ac per autoconf documentation.
37 - VERSION belongs in config.h from configure.ac, not Makefile.am.
38 - Use AX_CFLAGS_WARN_ALL instead of custom code.
39 - Address "autoupdate" and "autoreconf --warn=all" output.
40 - Support (conditional) installation of icons, including bitmap
41 icons at various resolutions, and desktop file.
42 - remove NEWS, now unnecessary due to automake foreign option.
43 - Makefile.am, interface.c: Generate icon compiled into executable from scalable icon.
44 - .gitignore: Updates.
45 - ChangeLog: trim whitespace
46 - squelch compiler warning: examine fgets return value
47 - squelch compiler warning: do not use gtk stock items
49 version 2.0
50 - use debugfs (Hans de Goede)
51 - convert to use gtk 3.0 (Hans de Goede)
53 version 1.1
54 - pretty icon (thanks to Bernhard).
55 - gtk 2.0 support (finally, after many people submitted patches
56 adding it, thanks for not letting me forget).
57 - added "..." to About and Configure dialogs based on comments by
58 Emil Brink.
59 - added patch from Emil Brink <firstname.lastname@example.org>
60 that fixed gtk warning when about dialog was displayed.
62 version 1.0
63 - fixed problem for devices that grabed more than one interface, the
64 name of the device would show up repeated a bunch. This was true
65 for a lot of audio and video devices.
66 - Tweaked the configuration dialog a bit.
67 - Tweaked the about dialog a bit.
68 - Everything seems stable, so let's put a major number on this release.
69 - added a pixmap hacked up from an image by M G Berberich
70 <email@example.com> to the about screen
71 - cleaned up the spec file to hopefully build a bit better on
72 different versions of different distros.
74 version 0.9.0
75 - added Trond Eivind Glomsrød's patch to always try to populate the
76 device tree when the program is started.
77 - cleaned up the code layout, removing the i18n code for now. Also
78 got rid of some old Glade helper code that was not being used. This
79 reduced the tarball size by about 1/2!
80 - usbview now updates the device list when devices are plugged in or
81 removed from the bus automatically (needs 2.4.0-test8 or later to
82 work properly due to a patch I made for drivers/usb/inode.c to
83 enable this to work.)
84 - Made any device that does not have a driver associated with it, show
85 up in red in the device listing. This should help users with the
86 problem that "My device shows up properly in usbview, but it isn't
87 working," that a lot of people seem to have (it isn't obvious, I
89 - Added small, drab looking "About" dialog box, to make it easier to
90 determine which version this is.
92 version 0.8.1
93 - fixed the Gtk-WARNING that happens the first time you press the
94 [Refresh] button.
95 - sped up the device info display a bunch. Should work a lot better
96 for devices that have a lot of interfaces and endpoints.
97 - fixed #ifdef bug in code. Thanks to Trond Eivind Glomsrød for
98 noticing this and providing a patch.
99 - fixed improper speed display for low speed devices. Thanks to
100 Brad Hards for noticing this and prompting me to add support
101 for high speed USB (like there will not be other changes for
102 high speed when it happens...)
104 version 0.8.0
105 - Added ability to select where the devices file is located at.
106 This allows you to view a usbdevfs devices file that comes
107 from another user, for instance. It also accomidates those who
108 do not mount usbdevfs at /proc/bus/usb.
109 - Fixed bug with devices that have a lot of interfaces.
110 - Changed the tree widget to a different style.
111 - Restructured the internal code a bit nicer (a lot of work to
112 go with this...)
113 - Added a TODO file to the archive listing some potential changes
114 that could be done.
116 version 0.7.0
117 - the logic for determining the name of the device changed to
118 properly display the name of a keyboard or mouse when the
119 HID driver is used. This is needed for kernel versions 2.3.36
120 and up.
122 version 0.6.0
123 - now can handle multiple root hubs.
124 - added display of bus bandwidth information for root hubs.
125 - added support for device strings to describe the device.
126 - made logic for device name to be smarter due to the availability
127 of the string descriptors.
129 version 0.5.0
130 - updated the parser to handle the fact that the interface now
131 dictates what driver is loaded.
132 - Tested on kernel version 2.3.29
134 version 0.4.0
135 - redid the user interface slightly, making the tree always expanded,
136 showing the top of the text field, and better balancing the splitter
139 version 0.3.0
140 - changed the parsing to make it easier to handle any future changes
141 in the way the format of /proc/bus/usb/devices
143 version 0.2.0:
144 - Configuration, interface, and endpoint data is now displayed
145 for each device.
146 - Fixed problem with processing the last line in the /proc/... file
149 Initial version 0.1.0:
150 - devices are read from /proc/bus/usb/devices and put into a tree view
151 - very basic information is displayed about each device when it is
