Fedora moving to libusbx and announcing libusbx
The libusbx fork was started by various libusb-1.0 developers (almost all of them), because the official maintainer of libusb-1.0 refused to do any stable / tarbal releases for over 18 months and in general was very slow with merging new developments and fixes.
Anyways, lets not look backwards, but forwards towards what looks to be a bright new future with libusbx :)
For more info on libusbx see the libusbx wiki.
I'm currently working on moving Fedora over to libusbx, you can find the Rename Review Request here.
