 +__Changes:__ 
 + 
 +  * Improved Bluetooth stability on Android 
 +  * Fix crash on Android when removing the USB serial port 
 +  * Performance improvements, mostly noticeable during connection time. 
 +  * Do not show the disable Bluetooth warnings when connected via VE.Direct cable

 +  * Fix battery presets edition 
 +  * Improve URL scheme registration on Linux 
 +  * Fix freezes on macOS where there are Bluetooth devices providing a serial port interface 
 + 
 + 
 +Solar Chargers: 
 +  * Add Bluetooth firmware v2.25 
 +  * Add firmware v1.50 
 +    * Improve PV Short Protection detection for 250V models when on ESS 
 +    * Add timeout to join a synchronised charging network 
 +    * Remove error 68. Now, the error will be no longer triggered when the same information comes from BLE and VE.Direct. A decision method based on priority is applied, where VE.Direct has a higher priority when compared to BLE. For more information, see MPPT Error Codes. 
 +    * Fix spurious charge algorithm reset after overshoot/zero current event. 
 +  * Add firmware v1.06 (VE.Can models) 
 +    * Update error 68 trigger conditions. Now, the error will be no longer triggered when the same information comes from BLE and VE.Direct/VE.Can. A decision method based on priority is applied, where VE.Direct/VE.Can have a higher priority when compared to BLE. Error will still be triggered if same data is received from VE.Direct and VE.Can. For more information, see MPPT Error Codes. 
 +    * Improved error 38/39 detection when charger is externally controlled (i.e. ESS mode). 
 +    * Fixed issue that could lead the MPPT to trigger error 67 (BMS missing) even when the BMS was present at the network. Also, the error could not be cleared properly. 
 +    * Change error 67 behavior by turning it into a warning, not error. Output voltage drops to the battery base voltage. 
 +    * Fix the reception of the charge current limit. That was a combined issue with Venus OS. The fix for the Venus is available on Venus OS v2.53 or higher. 
 +    * Fix NMEA device instance change when done over complex commands on VE.Can. 
 +  * Show PV power of all the synchronised charging MPPT's in the VE.Smart network

 +      * Fixed issue on some Android phones that kept the connection alive when it must be closed 
 +      * Show charger as not-connectable (greyed out) in VictronConnect, when it is already connected to another device 
 +      * Extend Bluetooth range for Blue Smart IP67 chargers 
 +      * Improved Bluetooth stability when performing a firmware update 
 +    * Changed re-bulk strategy 
 +      * The charger now automatically jumps back to bulk from (almost) all states if the current demand exceeds the maximum charge current. Previously this was only possible from the float and storage state. 
 +      * A setting is introduced to set a current threshold for jumping back to bulk (default disabled). When the charge current in float or storage exceeds this threshold value it will jump back to bulk. 
 +    * Improved relay clicking when mains is disconnected 
 + 
 +VRM: 
 +  * Fix app crash can happen on Android on reconnection when bringing back the app from background 
 +  * Fix error "-100" on poor network connections or Venus devices with high CPU loads, now connection is retried and the error is better handled.

 +    * Bluetooth can be re-enabled through VE.Direct or by pressing the MODE button for 10s 
 +    * Hide re-bulk current setting; not used, but could still be set 
 + 
 +BMV & SmartShunt: 
 +  * Increase displayed battery current resolution 
 +  * Fix voltage settings limits for BMV-710H Smart 
 + 
 +Smart Chargers: 
 +  * Make the default max bulk time product specific

 + 
 +Smart Battery Protect: 
 +  * Update Alarm and Warnings to better reflect manual 
 +  * Add firmware v2.04 update (mandatory): 
 +    * Added Charge Protection, which prevents overheating that happened when the product is installed wrongly, ie. by connecting a charger (e.g. a Multi) to the output. Note that still, also with this firmware update, the product is not to be installed in such manner. It is not designed to handle reverse currents. All currents need to go from IN to OUT. Which also means it cannot be used in combination with an inverter/charger like Multis and Quattros. This protection merely reduces the risk of overheating, smoke and fire in case of such error in the installation- design or -wiring. In detail: 
 +      * When (output is disabled and) output voltage is 0.5V higher than battery voltage and internal temperature is above 45 °C, the output will be enabled. 
 +      * Output will be kept enabled until internal temperature drops below 45 °C for 30 seconds. 
 +      * All this time E8 is blinking on the display and showing an error in VictronConnect. 
 +    * Support indication of default Bluetooth PIN. 
 +    * Support advertising connection state while being connected to VictronConnect. 
 +    * When changing the PIN, drop the existing bond information, such that user needs to pair again when reconnecting.

 +Fix VictronConnect could not recover properly after an interrupted bluetooth update of the bluetooth microcontroller/dongles in our products. 
 + 
 +__Known issues:__ 
 + 
 +On macOS, a firmware update of Multis, Quattros or other devices with a VE.Bus port may fail. This issue was introduced in VictronConnect v5.9. A new VictronConnect version fixing this is expected in the near future. Meanwhile, [[https://www.victronenergy.com/live/victronconnect:start#vebus_firmware_update_fails_at_5_on_macos|there is a workaround]].

Because of that, when the user selected and applied such “old” preset using VictronConnect 5.9, settings like Adaptive absorption were disabled, while they should be enabled by default.+- Fix an issue with the MPPT battery presets created with VictronConnect v5.8 and older.
