I cannot reliably maintain so I have given up ownership. Apologies for the delay.

Just a heads-up, libftd2xx isn't released under the GPL. The actual license terms are here:

1.4.8 is out.

(and still needs a .SRCINFO regeneration for 1.4.6 currently packaged)

makepkg --printsrcinfo >.SRCINFO

You need to update the .SRCINFO for the aur/aur helpers to understand that the package has been updated.

I've taken ownership and updated to the latest version. I've also decided to install and keep the static library file (libftd2xx.a) in case it's used in some cases.

Let me know if there are any issues!

I'm not using this package any more. Feel free to adopt.

arch=('i686' 'x86_64')
there should be no comma between 'i686' and 'x86_64'
