Just to remind you that I more or less regularly post beta versions of pcsc-lite and my CCID driver on http://ludovic.rousseau.free.fr/softwares/pcsc-lite/. These versions are beta but should be fully functional. So please test them and report problems.
The ChangeLog (for pcsc-lite) or README (for ccid) file is in general not up-to-date but the file generated with the subversion changelog is always up-to-date.
I may post blog messages describing all the wonderful new features I added in these software.
