Release Notes:
1. Add support for Windows 8 and Server 2012.
2. Assign COMx names for compound Edgeports (EP/4, EP/8, EP/16) in order at devi
ce install time and
improve FriendlyName to show external unit-relative port numbers instead of i
nternal port numbers.
Example (port 5 of an EdgePort/8):
v5.30 FriendlyName = EdgePort [44871896-2] Serial Port - 1 (COM7)
v5.70 FriendlyName = EdgePort [V44871896] Serial Port - 5 (COM7)
3. Re-Implement modem enumeration for EdgePort as well as RapidPort. It was rem
because it mistook certain POS devices for serial mouses. However, unlike th
implementations in previous versions, modem enumeration is disabled by defaul
t at install time,
but can be enabled via the config utility.
4. The Self-extracting zip file, in addition to extracting files to "c:\edgeport
drivers" folder,
now installs the drivers in the Driver Store in all operatings systems from W
indows 7 and
above. In earlier OS's it installs them in the default c:\windows\inf folder
. EdgePorts and
RapidPorts require no user intervention to install.
5. EdgePort did not properly enumerate when attached to a USB 3.0 Host Controlle
r. Fixed.
6. EdgePort Config Util uninstaller did not remove RapidPort modems. Fixed.

1. Add support for Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2.
2. Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2 drivers are available via Windows Update
3. Drivers for all other Microsoft Operating Systems will no longer be available
via Windows Update.
4. Fix problem with performing immediate reads with a full RX buffer.

1. When a user changes the COMx assignment of an EdgePort serial port through th
e EdgePort Configuration
Utility, the change is not automatically reflected in the Device Manager.
