An updated version of the papenmeier brailledriver is available.
Changes are:

  • Support new braille displays (Braillex live 20, Braillex Live, Braillex Live+) bugfixes:
  • Braillex keys working again when using nvda with brxcom
  • other smaller fixes.

I.ll post two patches soon. One provided by aliminator for documentation. Second one is the patch to current git version of the papenmeier driver.

Thx.

If the "other fixes" are noticeable to users, please be more specific about what they are. This way, a user will know if a problem they were experiencing has been fixed. If they're just minor code improvements, they don't affect users directly and don't need to be mentioned. Thanks.

When using a Papenmeier BRAILLEX braille display with BrxCom, keys on the display now work as expected.

I've committed a patch to fix the major bug (BrxCom key handling) for NVDA 2014.4, as the full patch cannot be accepted at this late stage. Please still provide the additional details requested in comment:1 so we can include the full patch in NVDA 2015.1. Thanks.

Well the other fixes are not noticeable for other users.
Removed some hardcoded values wich produced errors with the new added displays etc.

The entry for the changelog is missing when checking this out from git although it is in the patch.
Its the following entry:

  • New Papenmeier displays are supported: BRAILLEX Live 20, BRAILLEX Live and BRAILLEX Live Plus.

We don't include What's New entries in topic branches/next because they almost always cause annoying merge conflicts when we merge to master. Thus, we just add the What's New entry during the merge to master. Thanks.
