 +
 +==== v5.9beta1 ====
 +** 2019-07-29 **
 +
 +__Changes:​__
 +
 +  * Firmware updates are no longer mandatory for basic monitoring:
 +    * Live data page: This page can be accessed without updating the firmware unless the update is highly recommended and marked as mandatory.
 +    * Setting pages: To view and modify settings it is always necessary to update the product to the latest version included in VictronConnect.
 +
 +  * When unable to connect to a Bluetooth product, a message advising to remove the pairing is displayed and the default PIN code. Now it also includes tutorial videos of how to remove the pairing on Android and iOS.
 +
 +  * Do not allow change PIN code to same code
 +
 +  * Update the framework on top of which VictronConnect is built, required to comply with Google Play Store requirements. This will improve the application performance but adds a drawback: We have to drop support for old OS versions, see below.
 +
 +Android:
 +  * Add ARM64bit build: Takes advantage of all the power of modern CPUs. This is also required by Google Play Store.
 +  * Drop support for Android versions older than 5.0(Lollipop).
 +
 +iOS:
 +  * Requires iOS version 11 or newer. Oldest iPhone supported now is iPhone 5s.
 +
 +
 +MPPT Chargers:
 +
 +Note: Manual voltage drop compensation setting is listed in the battery setting page but doesn'​t work because the it was removed from the firmware during the development cycle. It will be removed from the user interface in next beta version.
 +
 +
 +  * Include firmware v1.42 for BlueSolar and SmartSolar chargers:
 +    * The Lithium battery rotary switch preset has been changed. Absorption time is fixed to 2 hours, and it will not stop on low tail current.
 +    * The re-bulk voltage was lowered from 13.7V to 13.4V (for all battery types).
 +    * Added four new settings:
 +      * Adjustable tail current (changeover from absorption to float).
 +      * Adjustable re-bulk offset voltage (changeover from float to bulk).
 +      * Adjustable automatic equalization parameters (current / duration).
 +      * Choose between adaptive- and fixed- absorption time. The adaptive mode is the method that has always been in the algorithm. It adapts the time to the battery voltage as seen in the morning. The fixed absorption time is what it says it is: a fixed time. No multipliers related to voltage in the morning. Setting absorption time to fixed does not disable the tail current mechanism: disable that too to get a 100% fixed absorption time. Note that we advise to not use fixed absorption times for lead batteries.
 +
 +  * Include firmware v1.02 for SmartSolar VE.Can:
 +      * Synchronized charging with VE.Can. This works the same as with previous models and the Skylla-i.
 +      * Add ESS support. When connected on VE.Can, the VE.Can device instance must be 0. Just like with the previous BlueSolar VE.Can models.
 +      * Add BMS support.
 +      * All new battery charger settings: fixed absorption, tail current, re-bulk offset voltage, max auto equalization time, equalization auto stop and equalization current percentage
 +      * Support for the Smart Battery Sense and BMV connected via Bluetooth VE.Smart.
 +
 +      * Update built-in presets database to match the new firmware
 +      ​
 +SmartShunt:
 +  * Add support for new SmartShunt product
 +
 +BMV:
 +  * Fix empty item in the transmitting list is shown in the VE.Smart networking settings page.
 +
 +Orion Smart:
 +  * Add engine shutdown detection setting
 +  * Fix adaptive mode is not changed when selecting a battery preset
 +
 +
 +
 +==== v5.8 (Released officially) ====
 +** 2019-07-18 **
 +
 +__Notes:__
 +  * When viewing the permissions of the Android version of VictronConnect,​ it shows "​microphone"​ and "​camera"​. This is unintentional and they are actually never user by VictronConnect. On Android versions >= 6, the individual permissions can be enabled/​disabled and the "​microphone"​ an "​camera"​ permissions can stay disabled. These permissions are removed in version 5.9beta2.
