Hi all,

I'm happy to announce a new version of python-can - version 2.1.0

The last few months have had plenty of changes and bug fixes while we stabalised version 2.0 (which was released in mid Jan).

Highlights from the changelog:

    Support for out of tree can interfaces with pluggy.
    Initial support for CAN-FD for socketcan_native and kvaser interfaces.
    Neovi interface now uses Intrepid Control Systems's own interface library.

In particular a shout out to pierreluctg and felixdivo and who have both made multiple contributions to this release.

What is it?

The can package provides controller area network support for Python developers; providing common abstractions to different hardware devices, and a suite of utilities for sending and receiving messages on a can bus.

The Controller Area Network is a bus standard designed to allow microcontrollers and devices to communicate with each other. It has priority based bus arbitration, reliable deterministic communication. It is used in cars, trucks, boats, wheelchairs and more.

The library supports Python 2.7, Python 3.3+ as well as PyPy and runs on Mac, Linux and Windows.
