A lot of things are currently being worked as far as I know (though not everything has been pushed to GitHub as of yet as it seems and the blog hasn't been updated for quite some time).

However the blog DOES mention BlueZ as part of future development back when OWO 1.0 was released. I'm not sure about the current status of development though.

Fully agree that they're way too old. I understood that they're working on a proper update but I don't know when it'll be ready....

Hi,

we already implemented a Bluetooth h/w module using Bluetooth stack by Sybase using UART as the HCI Transportation layer. [sybase ianywhere].

But now we wanted to implement the same on linux os as the to reduce the costs, Since Linux provides a free bluetooth stack BlueZ. Now, I am not sure if there is any difference in the output of bluez and ianywhere... in the sense that , if there is any difference in final command instructions between these two.

If so , then we need to write another layer in between the HCI transportation layer and the HCI layer of BlueZ .

Please suggest any differences in these two stacks and the way to approach these differences.

Thanks,

Anirudh.

note : As you can see that my question lacks specific details , I am a total new bee in bluetooth tech.
