I'd recommend avoiding the libusbx tarball which has been linked from
there and instead getting the http://git.libusb.org/libusb.git code.

It's complicated, but yes libusb.git code hasn't changed in about a
year. I expect it to work reliably, and indeed one or two bugs have
been fixed since the 1.0.9 release. (Before you say it, no, I can not
simply make a 1.0.10 release. As I wrote, it is complicated. If you'd
like to help out feel free to let me know and I'll explain until your
ears fall off.. :)

Please do look into the facts (it's very easy) rather than speculating.
