Code using the Boost::asio library is coming along as well as the ability to add a new serial port connection with a new main window tab. A new tab and connection are dynamically generated as of the latest commit tonight, however the serial port device path is still hard coded to "/dev/ttyUSB0" for now. I am planning for the next commit (or slightly later) to make this completely dynamic.
I'm currently changing the basic serial port handling code from a native POSIX API implementation to instead use Boost's boost::
The first post of the source code to gnome-serial is coming this weekend. It'll be simple and ugly but it will be posted and it will do very basic serial port communications. Right now I've been using my Actel SmartFusion devkit with a UART echo program to test gnome-serial's functionality. If you don't have one of these kits, head on over to www.actel.com and check one out.
I am working on RxTx a bit more tonight and wanted to let everyone know that this project is still alive. Anyone interested in helping out, let me know. I'd welcome someone else who is interested in creating a superb communications program for GNOME.
