Venus OS v2.22 – Octo GX & small fixes
Just now we’ve released a new version of Venus OS – the software which controls the Color Control GX, Venus GX and Octo GX.
Most importantly, Version v2.22 marks the completion of the new Octo GX. Further more it has a few small fixes:
- Fix that the ‘Inverter AC output in use’-setting was visible when it should not be; and the other way around. This bug was introduced in v2.20; and fixed thanks to Meisl in Germany.
- Venus GX & Octo GX: fix the Wi-Fi interface Mac addresses; now they no longer swap across reboots, which makes the IP address assignments stable.
- Fix a bug that occasionally caused for the VRM device-authorisation token to get lost during generation. This showed up to the user as a popup in VRM ‘Error, xx hours ago, data from an unauthenticated device has been received for this installation’. In such a case, VRM logging still worked, while MQTT based services such as remote firmware update & remote VEConfigure no longer worked. All sites that have that issue have been fixed; there is no need to worry about anything for your running system.
- Send the value of the Shared Voltage Sense setting (on/off) to the VRM portal, for diagnostics.
New: GX Product Family Overview
That is all when it comes to v2.22. I do have something else to announce, which is the GX Product Family document. All available Venus-devices are listed side by side in a table that compares them; and also all available accessories are listed.
Have a good day!
