A new beta, linuxwacom-0.7.1-1, has been posted. It supports kernel
2.6.14 and updated valuators.
Your serial number option request has been added and tested in
0.7.1-1. Now, you can specify tool serial number in xorg.conf's
InputDevice section for your Wacom tool.
For the valuator changes, they are only for third party developers. It
was requested by Qt developers. End users like you don't need them.
Let me know if you have more questions.
