Released:  May 24, 2010.
 

This is a major release of the X32-firmware with exciting news including support for the File Transfer Protocol (FTP)!
There is also a new synchronous mode of operation, when using the gwReceivePacket functionality allowing the application to ignore/accept the received package ultimately giving more control and a tighter coupling to the sender.
This release also introduces synchronous / asynchronous update modes of the I/O Extension. The default asynchronous update mode works automatically and will allow the application to stay fully responsive on the on-board I/O, while the synchronous mode offers manual update and more control using the new ioSynchronize function.


The full list of news:

Enhancements:

  •  FTP Support. It is now possible to send/receive files using the standard FTP protocol!
  •  Optimization on the MODBUS communication yielding higher effective bandwidth.
  •  New gsmSIMSetPin function to set the PIN-code on the SIM card.
  •  Support for buffered and unbuffered receive mode when using gwReceivePacket.
  •  Support for synchronous and asynchronous update mode when using the I/O Extension.
  •  Memory vector increased from 1024 to 4096 elements. 
  •  + other minor enhancements. 

Bug Fixes:

  •  Power consumption too high on the RTCU DX4 Series when using pmWaitEvent.
  •  Operating with multiple CAN bus filters did not work in all cases.
  •  Debug / GPRS log messages on the SD-CARD not correctly deleted when spanning from 2009 to 2010.
  •  The Navigation / Fleet-management functions could not be used with both low/high priority jobs configured.
  •  + other minor bug-fixes.


Most of the above features also requires the installation of the new RTCU IDE 5.60.
