Another milestone behind us. The 0.6.0 release brings the promissed CentOS/RHEL 7 compatibility. This means that our Copr EPEL-7 repository as well as Fedora’s EPEL-7 repository will now provide the latest versions of USBGuard. Check it out!
One more very good piece of news is that USBGuard was accepted in Debian and is available in Sid (unstable). A big thanks goes to Muri Nicanor and others involved in this packaging effort!
- Fixed a bug in matching devices against the policy
- Switched to protobuf based IPC
- Removed dependency on nlohmann/json package
- Simplified the IPC and D-Bus interface
- Extended the usbguard CLI watch subcommand with the ability to wait for the IPC connection to become available.
See the new
-ooptions for details.
