V0.4 release

I didn't think there was going to be another release for a while, but thanks to Martin Pischky a bug in the CloseDevice function was discovered. It's now corrected.
The Java binding is now included in the release as well for all you Java people!
Enjoy :)

V0.2 is out!

A bug fixed version of the libk8055 is now released. It used to be trouble on machines with USB2, but should work now. Libusb throws a warning when compiling the source but it's nothing dangerous...

Also a python library is now included! All thanx to Pjetur G. Hjaltason who have written it and kindly submitted it to me.

I hope it doesn't take ~2 years until next update ;-)

This is a "feature" of libusb function "usb_interrupt_write" that require the output to be 16-bit long. USB1.1 and velleman uses 8-bit data. I've made a work around for this at USB2.0 boards, still need to test how it works at 1.1 boards.... read more
