A new version of libserial (0.6.0) with significant improvements and new features is to be released on Nov. 3, 2008. Sorry for the delay; please come back on Nov. 3 to download the new version.
The libserial source code has been migrated from the SourceForge CVS repository to their Subversion repository. Read-only access is still available to the CVS repository. However, please use the SVN repository for the latest code.
Version 0.5.2 of LibSerial is now available for download. This version is also available as an RPM for FC5. FC6 RPMs will be provided in the next release.
The LibSerial home page has been moved to mediawiki. Tutorial(s), class documentation, and user guide to be added soon.
libserial-0.3 does not need STLport anymore. However, gcc-3.2 or higher is required for STL support.
This is an initial release to get the code "out there" it seems to work correctly on Linux so far. Needs lot more documentation and some example programs for sure. Hopefully a minicom-like example will be available soon.
