5.366. xorg-x11-drv-wacom

Updated xorg-x11-drv-wacom packages that fix multiple bugs and add various enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The xorg-x11-drv-wacom packages provide an X Window System input device driver that allows the X server to handle Wacom tablets with extended functionality.
The xorg-x11-drv-wacom package has been upgraded to upstream version 0.13.0, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version. (BZ#752642)

Bug Fixes

Prior to this update, the xorg-x11-drv-wacom driver allowed users only to use a pointer-focusing model. As a consequence, a dual-monitor layout on certain hardware could lead to an offset between the pen position and the cursor position. This update modifies the mapping offset in screen mode to provide new multi-screen handling.
Prior to this update, xorg-x11-drv-wacom driver could, under certain circumstances, encounter an "off by one" error in the array access of files and a null dereference. This update modifies the array indexing and checks for the right allocation before dereferencing.


This update adds xorg-x11-drv-wacom to HPC Compute Node ( v. 6 ). Now, xorg-x11-drv-wacom is a dependency for the gnome-settings-daemon and the control-center.
This update adds support for the Wacom Intuos4 Wireless device.
All users of xorg-x11-drv-wacom are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs and add these enhancements.
