afLib Release Notes
Download the latest afLib library from here: http://github.com/aferodeveloper/afLib.
Afero afLib4 R1.0
Release date: October 14, 2019
- Updated and simplified example apps, including addition of
full_api_example app, which documents every event afLib generates and how to handle each event.
- Updated handling of device Profile default values. AF_LIB_EVENT_MCU_DEFAULT_NOTIFICATION is now purely informational, and the new AF_LIB_EVENT_MCU_GET_REQUEST event will request that MCU send current value – including default value if desired – of each MCU attribute. Read more in Callbacks and Events.
reason parameter to
af_lib_set_attribute()function to indicate the reason the MCU is setting the attribute at the time. Read more about this function in Getting/Setting Attributes.
- Added Support for Plumo-2D devices.
- Platforms now supported include Arduino, Linux, and STM32.
Afero afLib3 R1.2
Release date: July 17, 2019
- Restored afLib3 support for Modulo-1. afLib3 hadn’t been talking to a properly-connected ASR.
- Renamed example profiles so “device name + device type” are a unique combination. The Profile Editor complains if they’re not.
- Profiles for Modulo-1B had LED on GPIO0 as Active Low when it’s Active High.
- Re-added missing LICENSE.txt file.
arduino_transport_create_spi(CS_PIN) API, inadvertently removed when adding
Afero afLib3 R1.1
Release date: January 7, 2019
- API change to
af_lib_send_set_response() for consistency.
- Added ASR_STATE_RELINKED to indicate when ASR drops offline and reconnects.
- Simplified afBlink example app.
- Fixed issue in example apps that caused Modulo-1 to not work properly.
- Updated example apps for new “MCU update all” behavior in Firmware R2.1.1.
- Removed reference to undefined RESET pin when using Arduino Uno.
- Created example app Profiles for Modulo-1B.
Afero afLib3 R1.0
Release date: August 9, 2018
- Atmel SAMD21 support (UART only).
- Linux support for connectivity to ASR-1 and ASR-2 via UART.
When used in conjunction with Firmware R2.0 and later:
- New, more logical API.
- Better handling of MCU attributes with default values. These are now differentiated in the callback when they’re sent to the MCU.
- More granular event-handling in callback to simplify usage.
- MCU OTA support. You can upload and deploy new firmware for your connected MCU via the Afero OTA Manager. Read more in Handling MCU OTA Updates.
- New system attributes:
- AF_ONLINE_STATUS will tell you if ASR is connected to the Afero Cloud.
- AF_DEVICE_ID enables retrieval of the device ID using
- AF_ASSOCIATION_ID enables retrieval of the association ID using
- New Modulo states:
- AF_MODULE_STATE_INITIALIZED indicates initialization is complete, and it’s safe for MCU to
- AF_MODULE_STATE_RELINKED can be used to differentiate a link state at reboot from a link state after the device may have dropped offline.
- Added function
af_lib_asr_has_capability() to allow the MCU to query the ASR firmware for supported features.
Afero afLib R1.3 and afLib2 R2.0
Release date: April 2, 2018
- Deprecation of C++ afLib.
- Added defines around debug prints in afBlink example so we don’t run out of memory on Arduino Uno.
- Initial public release of C afLib, called afLib2.
- Updated all example apps to use afLib2.
