* New upstream release.
Closes: #538078
* debian/watch:
+ Add watch file as upstream has now released a stable version.

+ Standards-Version: 3.8.2, no changes needed.
* debian/docs:
+ Remove commands.txt, it's not shipped by upstream anymore.
* debian/u3-tool.install:
+ Drop the file, upstream's build-system is fine.
* debian/u3-tool.links:
+ It's u3-tool-usb now that needs a manpage link.
