3.2.4 (17th Feb 2017)
* Linux - added ClaimPort to specify the port to claim from the linux kernel so that no configuration is set when the device is plugged in waiting to be used by virtualhere. This is useful for some devices that are sensitive to having configuration 1 set on connection. The usage is ClaimPort=<address>[,<address>,...] e.g ClaimPort=112,113 will claim port 2 and 3 on hub at address 11. (Note; there is an existing setting ClaimPorts (plural) that will claim all ports on all hubs plugged into the server)
