Since bluez 5.44, the rfcomm binaries contained in bluez-utils (amongst others like hcitool) are considered deprecated and are from now on only included in the bluez-utils-compat package provided by the AUR.
Is there a similar command-line application to bind a bluetooth device to a serial port using the rfcomm kernel module or do I have to use PyBluez or similar libs from now on?
If the latter happens to be the case, which Python 3 libraries would you recommend ?
And if somebody knows, please tell me why so many of the bluez-utils are considered deprecated all of a sudden. I couldn't find anything about that.
