- Improved compatibility various usb mass storages devices which would not work before are working now
- You no longer need to run spicy as root to use USB redirection, when running as a normal user you will now get a PolicyKit dialog asking you for the root password. You can change this by editing: /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/org.spice-sp
ace.lowlevelusbaccess.policy and setting <allow_active> to "yes". Note that this will give any local users of your machine FULL access to any USB devices plugged in!
- You can now redirect already plugged in devices / un-redirect devices without unplugging them, go to the
Input menu and click "Select USB Devices for redirection".
- Filtering for auto-redirection, you can now specify a filter for auto redirection using --spice-usbredir-auto-redirect-filter=<filter-string>. Standard a filter is in place to avoid redirection of HID devices, so that if you've a glitch on your USB bus, or plug a mouse into a laptop it no longer gets swallowed by the vm making it unavailable to the client.
While I'm plugging talks @FOSDEM, there will also be lots of other talks from Red Hat speakers.
Enjoy, and be sure to send any feedback you may have my way!
