OpenRazer 3.1 rolls out with new Razer device support and bug fixes

By - | Views: 10,089

OpenRazer is the excellent free and open source driver collection for a big growing list of Razer devices. A big new release is out with OpenRazer 3.1. When paired up with the Polychromatic front-end, it gives you a really simple way to properly manage Razer devices on Linux.

This release pulls in support for:

  • Razer Blade Advanced (Early 2021)
  • Razer BlackWidow V3 Tenkeyless
  • Razer BlackWidow Tournament Edition 2014
  • Razer Basilisk Essential
  • Razer Blade 15 Advanced (Mid 2021)
  • Razer Huntsman V2 Analog

Other improvements include:

  • Add more effects for Kraken Kitty Edition
  • Add volume scroll support for Ornata V2
  • Refactor some daemon internals
  • Remove unused statistics/heatmaps feature

And there's also some bug fixes:

  • pylib: Prevent DPI array error for DeathAdder mice
  • pylib: Fix UnknownMethodException for charging zones
  • Fix Razer DeathStalker Chroma matrix dimensions
  • Add check for battery value of 0.0
  • daemon: Only save DPI persistence above zero

That last one is important, and as a result of a bug report I put in. On Arch, sometimes when it all updates my own Razer Deathadder Chroma would often revert to a speed so low it was almost impossible to do anything so hopefully that will solve that.

Still a shame that hardware vendors like Razer don't support Linux directly, another example of the community doing what hardware vendors won't.
