May 4th 2018: Firmware v0.8.0-rc.4
A new pre-release firmware v0.8.0-rc.4 is available now on https://build.particle.io for Core/Photon/P1/Electron.
The changelog is short, so here it is!
- [Electron/Photon/P1] Increase Device OS API argument lengths. More data in Functions, Variables, Publish, Subscribe… oh my! #1537
Particle.keepAlive()API was broken since v0.6.2-rc.2 firmware on Electron where the System would override an early set User ping interval. This required a workaround of updating the keepAlive after the System made a connection to the Cloud. See issue #1482 for workaround. #1536
- [Electron] Fixes missing URCs for received data during TX or RX socket operations. This caused the modem not to be able to receive further data properly until it re-connected to the Cloud which it would do automatically but usually after a short or longer period of time. #1530
Be sure to read the full collection of notes in the changelog.
We want 0.8.0 to be rock solid and as bug-free as possible so please let us know if you find any issues.
