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.

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!

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! :smile:

0.8.0-rc.4

ENHANCEMENTS

  • [Electron/Photon/P1] Increase Device OS API argument lengths. More data in Functions, Variables, Publish, Subscribe… oh my! #1537

BUGFIXES

  • [Electron] 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
