  • The USB Jog/Shuttle hotplug integration was changed to use udev. The new configure option is --enable-udev-rules-dir, which defaults to $sysconfdir/udev/rules.d/ The following configure options were removed: --enable-hotplug-script-dir, --enable-hotplug-usermap-dir

However, when --enable-local-ffmpeg=no, then the import script uses the normal ffmpeg found in the PATH.
