4.0.2.0 (2014-08-19)

  • If the DNS Server Address on the network resulted in the DNS Server Address being to 0.0.0.0, the IPG100 would crash, and then cycle to crash again. Now we detect the 0.0.0.0 address and change it to a known good value, 8.8.8.8 which is the default Google DNS Server (3210).

 

4.0.1.0 (2014-03-17)

  • Users logging in with a CONNECT message and supplying an instance number were being disconnected immediately and then the IPG100 was crashing with a segmentation fault (2993).

 

4.0.0 (2014-01-03)

  • Allow users to log on with a CONNECT_FILE message, which enables connections that do not transfer PGNs, but do allow files to be transferred without requiring a license. IPG100 will respond with a CONNECTED_FILE message.
  • Allow users to log on with a CONNECT message, which enables data flow without taking a license from the IPG100. The IPG100 will respond with a CONNECTED message. This will be used with N2KView Mobile and N2KView PC when the license is obtained from a local key.

  • Stability improvements to connection from an iPad when the iPad suspends operation while running N2KView. This drop in connection was not be detected by the IPG100, and when the iPad is turned back on, the double connection caused the IPG100 to reset.

 

3.6.0 (2012-11-01)

  • Added functions for Sending Files to Clients
  • Added support for Receiving Files from clients; this includes support for the APPEND_FILE message and breaking up large files
  • Handle background files as part of the Configuration. Configurations are now stored in directories with their backgrounds.
  • Handle messages where the header is broken by fragmentation
  • If the password changes, inform the Cloud Server that the password has changed.

3.4.13 (2012-04-05)

  • Support Maretron Fluid Flow Rate and Fluid Volume PGN
  • Added Definitions for Maretron PGNs 65286 to 65291
  • Removed Debug Statements that may have been slowing the system down
  • Increased the number of calls to ProcessCriticalFunctions() to prevent the NMEA2000 buffer from overflowing and losing data. Calls to previously just reset the watchdog were changed to ProcessCriticalFunctions()

  • Replaced the call to read the USB devices with an internal System Call. Previously it was spawning a new task to read the list of USB devices (keys)
  • When license checks failed, multiple calls to close the connection were removed; only one call is now made.
  • Discard Messages with zero data bytes. Previously these were being sent to N2KView, using bandwidth.
