PySCard 1.7.0 released

Release 1.7.0

I just released a new official pyscard version 1.7.0 of pyscard. pyscard is a python module adding smart cards support (PC/SC) to python.


1.7.0 (June 2015)
  • PCSCCardConnection: Fix a problem with mode=SCARD_SHARE_DIRECT
  • add support of cygwin as a build platform
  • Fix a problem with Windows Remote Desktop
  • Switch from distutils to setuptools
  • dropped support for Python 2.5 and earlier (Alex Willmer)
  • dropped support for OS X 10.5 (Leopard) and earlier (Alex Willmer)
  • minor bugs fixed

Provided software

The source code archive pyscard-1.7.0.tar.gz is of course provided.

I also provide a binary installer pyscard-1.7.0.macosx-10.10-intel.tar.gz for Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite and Python 2.7.

Continuous Integration

The PySCard project now uses two continuous integration platforms:

Windows installers?

Maybe AppVeyor can be used to provide binary installers for Windows. Your help is welcome on this task because I am not a Windows user.
