December 20th 2018: Firmware v0.8.0-rc.12

A new pre-release firmware v0.8.0-rc.12 is available now on https://build.particle.io for Core/Photon/P1/Electron.

Note: This is a release candidate for 0.8.0 default so please do test on your systems.

0.8.0-rc.12

ENHANCEMENTS

  • [Electron/Photon/P1] Cache persistent feature flags (#1640)
  • [Photon/P1] Memory usage optimizations (#1635)

BUGFIXES

  • [Electron/Photon/P1] Fixes SOS in 0.8.0-rc.11 and also ensures button and OOM events are handled synchronously. Previously in multi-threaded applications the button handling may have been delayed to run within the application thread. Now it is always handled immediately and should be noted that it is called from an ISR, so it is not advised to dynamically allocate memory in button event handlers. (#1600) (#1650)
  • [Electron/Photon/P1] Do not disable interrupts on every system loop iteration (#1622)
  • [Electron/Photon/P1] Wait for Wiring Thread to start (#1528)
  • [Electron/LTE] Power Manager Watchdog Timer Fix (#1581)
  • [Electron/LTE] AT+CNUM command causing registration failure on LTE devices (#1627)
  • [Electron] PMIC::getInputCurrentLimit() cannot report values higher than 900mA (#1581)
  • [Electron] Do not set the sticky skip hello after handshake (#1624)
  • [Photon/P1] Invalidate sockets when turning WiFi off (#1639)

We want 0.8.0 to be rock :metal: solid and as bug-free :no_entry_sign: :bug: as possible so please let us know if you find any issues.

The ability to create Particle Products using the Generation 3 Hardware — specifically Products based on the Argon or Boron is now available in the Console and via the Particle API. These options will appear in the Device Type dropdown when creating a new product.

This will enable the creation of single-radio applications leveraging Wi-Fi or Cellular connectivity that use the latest and greatest Particle hardware. Stay tuned for support for Mesh-based deployments using the Product architecture!

May 20th 2019: Device OS v1.2.0-rc.1

A new Release Candidate Device OS v1.2.0-rc.1 is available now on https://build.particle.io for Core/Photon/P1/Electron/Argon/Boron/Xenon/A SoM/B SoM/X SoM.


1.2.0-rc.1

Note: If your Gen 3 device does not have a Cloud connection, it is recommended to update system firmware, and then the bootloader via CLI with particle flash --serial bootloader.bin (bootloaders found in Github release)

This release contains v302 bootloaders (bumped this release due to Gen 3 changes in #1777 ). We have also separated BOOTLOADER_DEPENDENCY for Gen 2 and Gen 3. For now, we will leave Gen 2 as is depending on v201 bootloader (so there is nothing to do for Gen 2 (Photon/P1 only) unless you want the latest bootloader, although it is not mandatory), but we have bumped Gen 3 to v302 because also in this release we have removed the embedded bootloaders from Gen 3 system firmware. To force the Cloud update for Gen 2 (Photon/P1 only) we will bump the bootloader dependency version to v302 in v1.2.0 default.

FEATURES

  • [Enterprise] Immediate Product Firmware Updates #1732
  • On-demand Device Vitals publishing #1724 [Docs]
  • Plus many ENHANCEMENTS and BUGFIXES!!!

July 30th 2019: Particle Javascript SDK 8.0.0

The particle-api-js Javascript SDK now has improved event stream error handling.

If you have a server or browser application that subscribes to Particle events and there is a network error the subscription used to fail silently (no additional Particle events were received but no error was communicated to the customer application). Now it handles more types of errors. You have to upgrade the version of particle-api-js they use to take advantage of this.

More details on how to use the improved event streams in the Javascript SDK docs.
