as it will use the same attribute as v2.0, to be released soon.
* Note that LIBUSB_API_VERSION is *decreased* to 0x010000FF and the previous
guidelines with regards to concurrent use of MaxPower/bMaxPower still apply.
2012-09-20: v1.0.13
* [MAJOR] Fix a typo in the API with struct libusb_config_descriptor where
MaxPower was used instead of bMaxPower, as defined in the specs. If your

APPENDIX A - How to maintain code compatibility with versions of libusb and
libusb that use MaxPower:
If you must to maintain compatibility with versions of the library that aren't
using the bMaxPower attribute in struct libusb_config_descriptor, the
recommended way is to use the new LIBUSB_API_VERSION macro with an #ifdef.
For instance, if your code was written as follows:
if (dev->config[0].MaxPower < 250)
Then you should modify it to have:
#if defined(LIBUSB_API_VERSION) && (LIBUSB_API_VERSION >= 0x01000100)
if (dev->config[0].bMaxPower < 250)
if (dev->config[0].MaxPower < 250)
