As a side note, I would like to push the latest clients/drivers from the
trunk to Testing once we have released 2.2.1. With the changes to the
usbhid-ups driver, I have removed the libhid dependencies for all USB
drivers (except usbhid-ups), but actually only needed the matching
functions. Now that these are in libusb, there is no more reason to drag
all this baggage with them.

Another thing that isn't scheduled for nut-2.2.1 is better protection
against buffer overflows. I think we can live without that for now (we
have for years already), but I would like to have that in nut-2.2.2.

Also, there is a change in the name of the 'beeper.on' and 'beeper.off'
commands in the trunk (compatibility code included, so the old commands
will still work, although they will log a warning). This might do away
with the confusion we created by changing the meaning of these along the
way. Again, that could be in nut-2.2.2.

Last, there are some changes underway for the snmp-ups driver. We need a
lot more testing, so its too soon to put these in nut-2.2.1.

Great! :-)
