New maintainer: Kurt Wall

Looks that the community of qc-usb users have a reason to celebrate: Kurt
Wall (krwall at sourceforge) volunteered to maintain the driver.
I'm convinced that he has the skills to do it, and no doubt that he will do
a superb job compared to what I have been doing lately.

I'll still stay around and help when I can. Thank you Kurt!

Messenger/Communicate driver

A QuickCam Messenger / Communicate
driver was developed by Christian Magnusson based on qc-usb and
Mathias Kster's work. The newest version
is 0.8 and was available at the original site
http://home.mag.cx/messenger/ until it went down.
A mirror is available here: http://www.ee.oulu.fi/~tuukkat/quickcam/messenger/

Another release out

qc-usb 0.6.1 is now here. Let me remind you,
that it intends to replace qce-ga; using qce-ga
is not recommended, use qc-usb now!

List of new features is shown by clicking
on "files" in the menu above and then the qc-usb package
name at the version 0.6.1.

New Quickcams don't work

Important! New Quickcams do not work the
qce-ga nor with the qc-usb driver! So beware this
if you are purchasing a new camera. A camera almost
definitely works if it has USB VendorId 046d and
ProductId one of 840, 850, or 870. New Quickcams
have ProductId of 910 or 920 and these don't work!

qc-usb released

After a long wait, qc-usb has been finally released.
Its initial version is 0.5.0 to denote that it's intended to supersede
qce-ga. However, some compilation problems have been
noticed. If you have problems with 0.5.0, try the CVS version
from http://www.ee.oulu.fi/~tuukkat/quickcam/qc-usb-cvs.tar.gz

Camera model number

The camera model number of the quickcam express is not related to its sensor type. As such (apart from pulling apart camera) there is no way of telling what the photo sensor is.
If you have a logitech quickcam express the only way
to tell is to try it.
