Fedora Update Notification

Name        : pyserial
Product     : Fedora 15
Version     : 2.6
Release     : 1.fc15
URL         : http://pyserial.sourceforge.net
Summary     : Python serial port access library
Description :
This module encapsulates the access for the serial port. It provides backends
for standard Python running on Windows, Linux, BSD (possibly any POSIX
compilant system) and Jython. The module named "serial" automaticaly selects
the appropriate backend.

Update Information:

New Features:

- Moved some of the examples to serial.tools so that they can be used
  with ``python -m``
- serial port enumeration now included as ``serial.tools.list_ports``
- URL handers for ``serial_for_url`` are now imported dynamically. This allows
  to add protocols w/o editing files. The list
  ``serial.protocol_handler_packages`` can be used to add or remove user
  packages with protocol handlers (see docs for details).
- new URL type: hwgrep://<regexp> uses list_ports module to search for ports
  by their description
- serveral internal changes to improve Python 3.x compatibility (setup.py,
  use of absolute imports and more)


- [Bug 3093882] calling open() on an already open port now raises an exception
- [Bug 3245627] connection-lost let rfc2217 hangs in closed loop
- [Patch 3147043] readlines() to support multi-character eol

Bugfixes (posix):

- [Patch 3316943] Avoid unneeded termios.tcsetattr calls in serialposix.py
- [Patch 2912349] Serial Scan as a Module with Mac Support
