Fingerprint GUI is a set of GUI tools for the use of fingerprint scanners on Linux systems. It enables the recording and checking of fingerprints of users and allows login and authentication of users by their fingerprint through its PAM module. An additional "fingerprintIdentifier" application can be used for customized (shell) scripts when users have to be identified or authenticated by their fingerprints. The system is based on device drivers from the "libfprint" project.

- fix license according to README
- add udev update rules
- update to 1.07
* Bugfix: Fingerprint export doesn't handle well spaces in custom filename;
* Security: Directory "/var/lib/fingerprint-gui" and all its subdirectories
are now owned by root.root with mode 755. All files in these directories
are also owned by root.root with mode 600 now. The helper module
"fingerprint-suid" was replaced by a new module "fingerprint-rw" not set
to suid root any more. This module is executed via "pkexec" for reading
and modifying fingerprint data.
A new policy file "cc.ullrich-online.fingerprint-gui.policy" is installed
in "/usr/share/polkit-1/actions/". This policy requires user authentication
via polkit when the users fingerprint data are modified. So an attacker with
access to a user's desktop while the user is away, can not register his
fingerprint in the name of this user any more.
* libpolkit-qt-1.0 is not supported any more;
