The ready-to-use driver software as well as the source code are available for download, compressed in ZIP-files. They can be opened and unpacked with commonly available decompression-tools.
Could the driver also become available in another language than the existing
ones? Well, volunteers to come up with translations are welcomed! I am more than
happy to assist anyone in finding all the relevant areas in the source code. And I
can certainly compile the translated version.
Since release 0.10.1, the IrDA plugin developed within this project has become part of the network protocol analyser Ethereal.
The latest version of the Linux tool irdadump allows offline capturing also on this platform. Look out for irda-utils 0.9.16 or later, e.g. at Jean Tourrilhes' IrDA site. To enable realtime capturing on Linux, a recent libpcap version is required (0.8.1 or later).
Features that were added from version to version can be viewed in the release notes.
