Release Notes: Various enhancements to libv4l were made, resulting in significantly less CPU usage with UVC HD cameras in several scenarios. An experimental library was added for associating video, audio, vbi, and other devices with each other, allowing apps, for example, to automatically figure out which ALSA input device carries the audio for a specific corresponding video device. Many more laptop models were added to the table of upside down devices. Support for the M420, Y10B, and JPGL pixel formats was added. The JPEG decompression code was rewritten for speed. Many further enhancements and fixes were made.
