SC-Controller: v0.4.5 veröffentlicht, vorerst letzte Version

SC-Controller Screenshot

sc-controller, der Linux-User-Mode-Treiber für den Steam- und weitere Controller (z. B. DS4), wurde heute in der Version 0.4.5 veröffentlicht.

Wie der Haupt-Entwickler Kozec auf Patreon bekannt gab, gefällt ihm eine Entwicklung bzw. politische Ausrichtung innerhalb der Linux-Kernel-Community nicht mehr, und wird daher vorerst keine weitere Entwicklung an SC-Controller mehr betreiben:

Closing this thing up
I'll try to keep this short, so bear with me;

As you probably already heard, earlier this week, Linux became part of political movement. It's movement that I strongly disagree with and wish to not be associated with in any way. Because of that, I don't feel welcomed in Linux community anymore.

Or, to write it like human being, with all this mess, coding is not fun at all.

So I'm throwing hands up and walking through the middle.

Luckily, my projects are mostly complete. There are feature requests that I'd like to eventually finish, but even if I end up never touching them anymore, current state should work well. And I'm not dying, so if some interesting bug comes around, I'll probably still be there to fix it.

I'm writing this mostly because I can't expect you to continue supporting me under those conditions. And because I don't think it would be OK to disappear without a word, I'm not sure if I can close my Patreon account without nuking this message right now. In worst case scenario, you should be able cancel pledges from your side.

So, thank you all for your cash, bug reports, cash, support, suggestions, cash, pull requests and cash. You were seriously great :)

Sorry but what are you referring to? I haven't heard anything and looking at the top posts on r/linux of the past week yelds nothing about Linux becoming part of a political movement.

You should wait a bit longer. Maybe the community comes to an acceptable conclusion.

Die Neuerungen der Version 0.4.5:

This is last SC-Controller release for a while. With all that mess happening around Linux this week, I've decided to move away as far as possible. I plan to finish all "enhancements" eventually, just not right now.

And please, don't hesitate to report bugs.

New:

On-screen keyboard can be now used with DS4 gamepad
Improved editing profile using controller
Allowed SVG custom menu icons
Allowed displaying multiple OSD messages, with different font size and display time

Fixes:

Status icon displaying wrong application name and/or no image
Status icon looks bad on hidpi screens
With two displays, where one is rotated and other one is offseted horizontally (and Compiz is used on 3rd Friday in month while gray cat is in house), OSD menu with too many items is drawn partially off-screen
Bumpers swapped with bluetooth driver.
More NixOS fixes (thanks @rnhmjoj)
