New for version 2.6.2:
- Alternative hex output (to be improved)
- Print creation date of serial device file (if < 20 hrs), useful for
  identifying just plugged in USB-Serial adapters
- Support ':' (colon) in device path names. Note, that this changes old
  behaviour which used ':' as a device path delimiter.
- Several language updates.
