libusb-1.0.0 released

I have released libusb-1.0.0. libusb is a library which allows you to write applications that interact with USB devices, without the requirement of writing a kernel device driver.

The new libusb-1.0 branch includes new features and improvements over previous versions of the library. Here is a brief run-down, see the release announcement for more details:

  • Support for isochronous endpoints.
  • Asynchronous I/O for advanced users.
  • A simple, synchronous I/O interface also exists (in the style of libusb-0.1).
  • Lightweight with very few dependencies
  • Thread safety
  • Power saving
  • Reduced CPU usage and power drain
  • Increased USB throughput
  • Detailed API documentation
  • Compatibility with libusb-0.1 through the libusb-compat-0.1 compatibility layer
