2019-11-20: v1.90.0 release
This release updates the core of the library to use GLib routines and Gio
style APIs. While the API both for library users remain similar in most
ways, there are some changes and all users will need to be ported.
A large motivation for the in-depth changes was the requirement to add
new API to support sensors that store the prints on the sensor. This
support is already used by the new synaptics driver, which will support
the current generation of the Prometheus MIS (match-in-sensor) chipset
by Synaptics (USB ID 06cb:00bd).
The current codebase is considered stable at this point. However, due to
the lack of wider testing it is only released as a 1.90.0 release which
can be considered a beta-release for 2.0.
With the rewrite, it is now also possible to support devices that are not
connected through USB (e.g. I2C). Another major improvement is that the
library has now a test suite, testing both the library core and allowing
tests of the drivers using umockdev.
