Name        : usbredir

Version     : 0.4.1
Release     : 1.fc17
URL         : http://spice-space.org/page/UsbRedir
Summary     : USB network redirection protocol libraries
Description :
usbredir is a protocol for redirection USB traffic from a single USB device,
to a different (virtual) machine then the one to which the USB device is
attached. This package contains a number of libraries to help implementing
support for usbredir:

A library containing the parser for the usbredir protocol

A library implementing the usb-host side of a usbredir connection.
All that an application wishing to implement an usb-host needs to do is:
* Provide a libusb device handle for the device
* Provide write and read callbacks for the actual transport of usbredir data
* Monitor for usbredir and libusb read/write events and call their handlers

Update Information:

New upstream spice-gtk and usbredir releases:
- USB redirection is now aware of host/guest side filtering
- you can query spice_usb_device_manager_can_redirect_device()
- fix the usbredir channel lifetime to be equal to session lifetime
- set keepalive on channel socket
- add a SpiceDisplay::zoom-level to maintain a scaling ratio
- add controller ENABLE_SMARTCARD option
- remove a few warnings, ui improvements, build fixes
