Firmware v2.5 is a minor fix release. We cleaned up two small bugs in the binary SPI library, and removed an update to the smartcard library to make it more flexible. This should be the last rapid release to correct minor bugs – sorry about that, we want a final release firmware with fully working binmode features to develop against.
Our Perl script to dump SPI EEPROMs is in the project SVN, look for a full tutorial in the next few days. We created a scripts folder for any Bus Pirate related software. We’d love to host a copy of your scripts, no matter how simple.
The next firmware release will probably include binary UART and binary I2C access modes.
