#129 Where is download of version 2.6? Is Windows supported?


The documentation describes features new in version 2.6, e.g. serial.tools.list_ports. But version 2.6 is not available on the SourceForge site. I see PyPI has a download for version 2.6, but it's a .tar.gz file only. So what is the release status of version 2.6? Does it support Windows, since there is no Windows download? The situation currently seems a bit haphazard.

    The .tar.gz provided is sufficent for a Windows installation, see http://docs.python.org/2/install/index.html#the-new-standard-distutils

    2.6 documentation states that "The files in this package are 100% pure Python." so there is no need to worry about C/C++ compiler stuff at all.
