libusb upgrade report


I upgrade libusb-1.0.19 and libusb-compat-0.1.5 in slackware64-14.1 stable
http://libusb.info/

I use slackware 14.1 SlackBuild from source (change only version)
everything seems to work here, including cups and sane with my HP multifunction

I need upgrade for passing through usb devices in qemu
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...mu-4175492519/

qemu notes in slackbuilds.org says "To enable USB passthrough, you will need libusb >= 1.0.13"
USB passthrough now works here in qemu 2.1.2

I suggest an upgrade for current or at least further testing

Hope this helps.

Yep, I'm running both of those locally as well. It would be nice to get those into 14.1, but I suspect Pat will nix that.
