1.132.1.  RHEA-2009:1384: enhancement update

New linuxwacom packages that provide new features are now available.
The Linux Wacom Project manages the drivers, libraries, and documentation for configuring and running Wacom tablets under the Linux operating system. It contains diagnostic applications as well as X.org XInput drivers
These updated packages include the following enhancements:
  • serial tablets commonly found in tablet laptops were not recognized as tablets. The udev rules have been modified to create symbolic links, which adds serial tablet support. (BZ#483827)
  • wacomcpl did not show a specific pointer device in the title bar of a submenu when a tool was edited. (That is, the title bar showed 'Tool Buttons' rather than 'Stylus Tool Buttons' when the Stylus tool was selected.) The device is now shown in the submenu title bar so that users can easily see which device is being edited. (BZ#485942)
Wacom tablet users who wish to use these features should upgrade to these new packages, which add the required support.
