  • Add specific PIN min (0) & max (25) sizes for SmartTerminal ST-2xxx
  • Do not get the data rates if bNumDataRatesSupported = 0
  • Support Gemalto features for pinpad readers MinimumPINSize, MaximumPINSize and bEntryValidationCondition are fetched from the reader firmware

  • be more strict for bInterfaceClass = 255 by also checking extra_length
  • some minor bugs removed
