New release: usbguard-0.2 & usbguard-applet-qt-0.2

I’m happy to announce that a new release of usbguard and usbguard-applet-qt is now available. There’s still a long way to go to a production-ready release, mainly because there aren’t any CLI tools available yet and also because the IPC authentication isn’t implemented, but at least it’s a bit closer now.

The rule language received a significant improvement and you can read the updated documentation here.

Major changes


Note that the rule language syntax changed. USBGuard no longer recognizes the “class” attribute, which was removed, and the “port” attribute, which was renamed to “via-port”.

If you are using the USBGuard Copr repository, run:

$ sudo yum update usbguard usbguard-applet-qt
