Release: 1.41 Build date: Thu May 31 10:07:55 2018

Summary: A mode switching tool for controlling multiple-device USB gear
USB_ModeSwitch is a mode switching tool for controlling "flip flop"
(multiple device) USB gear. It allows so-called "Zero-CD" devices that
show up as USB storage initially to be switched into their more useful
"application mode". This is most common for UMTS/3G wireless WAN






* Tue Aug 22 2017
  - Update to version 2.5.1
    * New parameter "HuaweiAltMode", uses an alternative Huawei
      standard bulk message which will either provide NCM
      (newer modems) or plain PPP ports (older modems).
    * New option in the global configuration file
      "HuaweiAltModeGlobal", allowing easy override of
      "HuwaeiNewMode" with "HuaweiAltMode".
    * Reworked USB configuration switching, configuring a device
      reset first before setting the target configuration.
    * Improved driver detachment, now taking all configured
      interfaces into account.
  - Update usb-modeswitch-data package to version 20170806
    * Added devices: [03f0:371d] HP un2430, [03f0:4b1d] HP hs2434,
      [03f0:4e1d] HP lt4111, [03f0:a31d] HP lt4132,
      [0846:0fff] Netgear AirCard 779S,
      [12d1:15ec] Vodafone/Huawei K5150.
    * Corrected/amended configs: [0922:1003] Dymo LabelManager 420P,
      [0922:1007] Dymo LabelManager Wireless PnP,
      [1199:0fff] Sierra devices.
    * Removed configs: [1004:61aa] LG VL600.
  - Updated file device_reference.txt.
  - Added file parameter_reference.txt
* Fri Feb 24 2017
  - Update usb-modeswitch-data package to version 20170205
    * Bugfix release: Removed all catch-all fallback config files as
      they can affect unrelated devices - fixes (rh#1374913).
* Sat Jan 28 2017
  - Update to version 2.5.0
    * ATTENTION: Parameter transmitted from udev now reduced to %k
      (kernel name), however, rules file parameters can be '%b/%k' or
      '%k' - this fixes issues with parameter handling by the systemd
      unit file.
    * Remove endpoint reset ahead of bulk message transmission, only
      reset if endpoints are actually stalled, helping with quirky
      device behaviour (see
      viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2582 ).
    * Stability fix by making a buffer in the config parser static,
      preventing problems seen in Fedora (thanks to Lubomir Rintel
      for patches and hints regarding the three previous issues).
    * Removed premature driver unbinding in wrapper which could
      disrupt certain devices already in target mode (reported by
      Aleksander Morgado).
    * Improved check for determining install mode (essential with
      generic config files present, e.g. 12d1:#linux).
  - Update usb-modeswitch-data package to version 20170120.
* Fri Oct 28 2016
  - Update usb-modeswitch-data package to version 20160803.
  - Added systemd as BuildRequires and fixed install of service file.
* Tue Sep 13 2016
  - Avoid a race in make install, which lead to packaging a truncated
    usb_modeswitch_dispatcher script. Fixes boo#998641
* Sat Aug 20 2016
  - Install required usb_modeswitch@.service, fixes boo#994763
* Fri Jul 29 2016
  - Update to version 2.4.0
    * ATTENTION: All ad-hoc driver binding code (using new_id driver
      attribute) removed - was a potential source of side effects and
      should now be obsoleted by good kernel support for modems.
    * Added "dummy" setting for config files, to conditionally
      refrain from handling a device (see this topic:
    * Extended StandardEject sequence to include LUN 1, required for
      some D-Link devices.
    * Add device class 239 ("miscellaneous") to sanity check (thanks
      to Daniel Drake for reporting).
    * udev shell script - removed driver binding, removed almost all
      waiting and forking, improved check for systemd (thanks to
      Daniel Drake for problem analysis and solution, see this
* Tue Feb 16 2016
  - Update to version 2.3.0
    * ATTENTION: -I flag is now history and being ignored - determining
      SCSI attributes is really an 'outside task'.
    * -n flag (NeedResponse) is being ignored, CSW response will now
      always be read.
    * Introduction of parameter "OptionMode", wrapping the standard
      bulk message for all newer Huawei devices.
    * Fixed missing variable initialization in dispatcher script which
      could lead to crash (thanks, Dmitry Kunilov!).

  - Update to version 2.2.6
    * Renamed function abort(), avoiding possible conflicts in static
      builds with libjim (thanks, Gustavo Zacharias).

      enabling new multi-config devices in data package 20151101.

  - Removed unused usb_modeswitch-data.rpmlintrc
  - Removed changelog from documentation

      Leonid Lisovskiy);
    * fixed Pantech commandline parameter evaluation (was not working at all);
    * added driver unbind step via sysfs in wrapper, getting rid of the
      USB subsystem complaint "interface 0 claimed by usb-storage while
      'usb_modeswitch' <does this and that>"
  - Update to version 2.2.4
    * Fixed buggy check of USB configuration selection (possibly leading
      to segfault), tested with Alcatel X602D;

      from libusb initialization - not available in earlier libusb1 versions
  - Update to version 2.2.3
    * Fixed problem arising with systemd version 221 (220 untested), which
      affects starting the usb_modeswitch systemd unit from the sh script
      (reported by Archlinux users)
  - Update to version 2.2.2, 2015/06/27
    * Added catch for libusb init error (thanks, Henrik Gustafsson);
    * removed global function result variable; added catch for USB configuration
      read error (both thanks to "otila");
    * fixed wrapper script where port search for symlinking modem port was
      broken ("/dev/gsmmodem");
    * changed PantechMode parameter to represent different targets;
    * added global config option to disable MBIM checking and setting
      alltogether (request from "kai");
    * changed udev sh script so that systemd processing takes precedence over
    * changed systemd template unit parameter to avoid escaping problems
