Written by Michael Larabel in Linux Kernel on 7 May 2019 at 12:07 AM EDT. 1 Comment
The HID subsystem updates for the Linux 5.2 kernel have two changes in particular we have been eager to see merged.

First, there is now a mainline U2F Zero driver developed by a Collabora developer. This libre hardware USB device provides two factor authentication possibilities and hardware RNG support.

More interesting and relevant to the masses is improvements to the Logitech wireless keyboard/mouse support thanks to a rework for how the Logitech wireless receiver handling is done in the logitech-dj driver.

Other HID changes include support for the Macally Ikey keyboard, support for multiple clients in the Intel-ISH driver code, and various fixes. More details on the HID changes via this pull request.
