Color Control GX firmware version v1.74 has been released. It contains two principal changes:
Pump auto start/stop
- Fixes the auto start/stop functionality. For more information about this feature, see the manual.
- Reduce load on authentication server for mqtt.victronenergy.com
- Add keep-alive mechanism: only send data when someone is listening. Reduces traffic as well as server load.
Note: from now on it’s necessary to send a keep alive, as without it the CCGX will not send any data updates. More info in the dbus-mqtt/README.md on github.
Installing the update
By default, a CCGX will automatically download and install this new firmware version via the Internet. For a manual update, follow instructions here.
