- Prior to this update, the HAL daemon did not properly handle the hot plug addition and removal events. Consequently, the HAL daemon terminated unexpectedly with a segmentation fault during device probing. With this update, hot plug events are properly handled and the HAL daemon no longer crashes in the aforementioned scenario.
- Prior to this update, the /usr/libexec/hald-probe-smbios script, as well as certain other hald-probe scripts, terminated unexpectedly after they were manually started. This bug has been fixed and the aforementioned scripts can be started manually without complications.
- Previously, the HAL daemon did not recognize touchscreen monitors correctly. Consequently, these monitors were not added to the list of hot plugged devices in the Xorg window system. Support for touchscreen devices has been added to HAL and these devices are now recognized correctly.
