IoT platform Thinger.io is thrilled to announce the launch of version 6.1.0, a significant update that enhances the functionality and user experience for both our community and private server users.

  • Brand PWA “start_url” 🌐: to make the console installable on Chrome.

Improved

  • Add some resources cache to enhance performance on massive endpoint calls and bucket writes.
  • HTTP devices have migrated to a new connection schema, enabling logging of statistics such as bytes sent, received, and connections, similar to MQTT or IOTMP devices.
  • You can now use HTTP devices inside dashboards with resources defined at the product level.
  • Device property selector for HTML widgets allows selecting any parent node (with nested values), or all property values by not selecting any field. Fixes
  • Property PATCH now supports regular JSON for partial property updates. Fixes
  • Serving brand icons and logos from the filesystem instead of data URLs now improves page load speeds.
  • Dashboard HTML widgets from external storage no longer require public storage access. In the case of members of a project, they will require read access to the storage.
  • You can now generate product properties, topics, resources, and functions by calling a product function.
  • Product bucket writes can now override tags values based on the write payload. Previously, the product always set tags like ‘device’, overriding any ‘device’ field in the payload.
  • Compatibility with OpenSSL 3.0 on SSL certificate provisioning.
  • IP Geocoding automatic updates.

Bug Fixes

  • Apex Charts widget colors do not honor time series color configuration.
  • The system fails to process binary data in the product payload correctly.
  • Visual Studio Code not opening the file storage correctly.
  • The API explorer failed to display products containing only ‘run’ resources.
  • Product profile list for buckets, endpoints, auto provision, and API resources were always displaying ‘Property’ instead of the resource type.
  • Info page display on empty or restricted resources.
  • Statistics on sockets count.
