Aug 15th 2017: Firmware v0.7.0-rc.3

A new pre-release firmware v0.7.0-rc.3 is available now on https://build.particle.io for Core/Photon/P1/Electron.

The changelog is short, so here it is! :smile:

DEPRECATED API

[PR #1365] Beginning with 0.8.0 release, Particle.publish() and Particle.subscribe() methods will require event scope to be specified explicitly. Please update your apps now to include the event scope to avoid compilation errors in >=0.8.0.

BUGFIX

[PR #1362] [Fixes #1360] Fixed SoftAP HTTP usage hard faulting in 0.7.0-rc.1 and 0.7.0-rc.2

Be sure to read the full collection of notes in the changelog.


We want 0.7.0 to be rock solid and as bug-free as possible so please let us know if you find any issues.

Aug 29th 2017: particle device doctor

The CLI release 1.24.0 adds a new device doctor command that resets many settings on a device to bring it back to health.

Update the CLI with npm install -g particle-cli

Run particle device doctor with a device connected over USB and follow the prompts.

The CLI documentation lists all the settings that the Doctor resets.

A :particle: a day keeps the Device Doctor away!
