New RS232 (Devices) node

vvvv contained two RS232 nodes, both with different pros and cons:

  1. RS232 (Devices) shipped with the core package
  2. RS232 (Devices Spreadable) shipped with the addonpack
    • + spreadable
    • - used datatype String

apart from those differences both of them didn't output the DSR, DCD, CTS, RI and Break states as requested by reaktant in this forum post.

we therefore decided to make the previous two nodes legacy (not breaking existing patches) and rewrite the RS232 node as a plugin with all the features of the two previous nodes combined:

  • uses new datatype RAW
  • fully spreadable
  • allows setting of DTR, RTS and Break states
  • returns DSR, DCD, CTS, RI and Break states

the new RS232 (Devices) is now available for testing in the alpha versions of vvvv >= 29.5.
