PySCard 1.9.0 released

I just released a new official pyscard version 1.9.0 of pyscard. pyscard is a python module adding smart cards support (PC/SC) to python.

The PySCard project is available at:


The main change is the support of Python3. I would not be surprised if some Python3 issues are still present.
After some more testing, stress test and bug fix (if needed) on Python3 I will move the version number to 2.0.0.

1.9.0 (August 2015)
  • add Python3 support (Python2 is still supported)
  • fix a lot of pylint warnings
  • smartcard/test/* replace deprecated assert calls
  • add tox support and coverage reports, run test suite on Travis
  • add Travis CI support to automatically build on Unix
  • add AppVeyor support to automatically build on Windows
  • minor bugs fixed
  • Big thank you to Alex Willmer for his work on pyscard
