 +
 +__Changes__
 +
 +  * Enable continuous Bluetooth scan, products will appear in the list as soon as they are in range. A note on power consumption and this change: Continuous scanning has no impact on products power consumption. On phones and so, it of course will have an impact on battery consumption, we have not measured it but its not big impact and also it is not common to sit on the products list. The continuous scan is only active when the app is in the foreground __and__ on the devices list page. When the app is sent to the background or connected to a product, the scanning stops. The refresh buttons remains, pushing it will make VictronConnect scan for VE.Direct devices, refresh the VRM installations list, and restart the Bluetooth scanning just in case it is needed.
 +  * Show Bluetooth signal strength in product list
 +
 +
 +IMPULSE-II:
 +  * Add support IMPULSE-II 24/8 Smart IP44 model using new microprocessor 
 +  * Add firmware v3.23 update for IMPULSE-II 24/8 Smart IP44 (non-mandatory)
 +    * Same as v3.17, but adds support for IMPULSE-II 24/8 Smart IP44 model using new microprocessor
 +
 +SmartBMS CL:
 +  * Add firmware v1.03 update (non-mandatory):
 +    * Fixed issues with VE.Smart, where communication could come to a halt
 +    * Fixed issue when recovering from external reference failure
 +    * Several internal improvements
 +
 +BlueSolar MPPT:
 +  * Add missing Streetlight settings menu in BlueSolar 100/20 demo
 +
 +==== v5.35 (Released officially) ====
 +** 2020-11-04 **
 +
 +__Changes__
 +  * Fix freeze on Windows at startup and/or when scanning
 +  * Improve VRM connection by retrying to connect before showing a timeout error.
 +  * Fix VRM sign in button doesn't open the browser on iOS 14 when Safari is not the default browser. This issue also affects other links in VictronConnect.
 +  * Add support for the upcoming Lynx Smart BMS
 +  * Improve Venus backlog to xlsx converter:
 +    * Speed up conversion time by a factor of ~5
 +    * Remove maximum 500MB sqlite3 backlog file size
 +    * Show conversion progress
 +    * Add cancel button
 +
 +MPPT Solar Chargers:
 +  * Add firmware v1.54 (non-mandatory):
 +    * Fix load output briefly turning off when charger is enters low power mode, introduced on v1.52 on SmartSolars.
 +    * Improve error 38 detection for SmartSolars 250/60 and 250/70 models.
 +
 +
 +VE.Bus Inverter/Chargers:
 +  * Enable high speed communications: Shortens the time needed for retrieve values and settings.
 +  * Increase the Multi/Quattro detection timeout when scanning.
 +
 +Smart Chargers:
 +  * Fix CSV export: starting at second column, values are shifted left by one column.

 +
 +Inverter RS:
 +  * Fix charge voltage limits on demo products
 +
 +MPPT RS:
 +  * Fix charge voltage limits on demo products
 +
 +
 +==== v5.34 (Released officially) ====
 +** 2020-10-21 **
 +
 +__Changes__
 +  * Sort VRM installations by name
 +  * Add timeout when connecting to a Bluetooth product to prevent connection getting stuck and ensure that the retry mechanism is triggered.
 +  * Fix some texts do not update when switching language until the application is restarted
 +  * Improve VE.Smart networking on demo products
 +
 +
 +Phoenix Smart Charger:
 +  * Add firmware v3.31 update:
 +    * Add support for VE.Smart networking
 +      * For now only Vsense and Tsense. Synchronized charging is scheduled for a future release
 +      * Blink status LEDs briefly once every 4 seconds to indicate VE.Smart networking is active
 +    * Add history of the last 40 charge cycles, similar as the Blue Smart Chargers
 +      * Note that the history is the total of all outputs
 +    * Use re-bulk voltage offset instead of absolute re-bulk voltage
 +      * The re-bulk voltage is migrated to re-bulk voltage offset based on the lowest setpoint
 +    * Improved temperature compensation
 +      * Compensate down to -20°C for bulk and absorption, instead of only 6°C. During float and storage, the compensation is only down to 6°C, as per best practises: to charge a very cold battery, increase the charge voltage; but not to "float" a battery. With this change the Phoenix Smart Charger temperature compensation works the same as our Solar Chargers as well as Multi and Quattro inverter/chargers.
 +    * Lower the minimum configurable charger current from 25% to 10% * Inominal
 +    * Add low battery temperature cut-off: stop charging lithium batteries below 5°C (default)
 +      * Requires VE.Smart networking temperature sensor, e.g. Smart Battery Sense
 +      * When pressing the Why is my charger off? button in VictronConnect it will state that the charger is off due to a low battery temperature.
 +      * For the current hardware (Rev1), instead of switching the unit off the setpoints are set to lowest value possible, i.e. 12V and 10% * Inominal for a 12V unit. This for the reason that it cannot be guaranteed that a battery voltage is always present, which is required for the charger to switch off. Some lithium batteries with build-in BMS will cut themselves off in case of over/under voltage or temperature.
 +      * Note for Victron Smart Lithium batteries, above feature is not relevant. Since then the BMS will disable the charge when the batteries are below 5°C, and also in case of cell over voltage. More clearly: its not necessary to buy a Smart Battery Sense to make sure a Phoenix Smart Charger stops charging a Victron Smart Lithium Battery below 5°C.
 +    * Add tail current functionality
 +      * When the charge current is below the threshold for 1 minute, the absorption stage is ended and the charger will switch to float/storage.
 +    * Add high battery temperature condition to programmable relay
 +      * Requires temperature sensor, e.g. Smart Battery Sense
 +    * Allow 0% recondition current
 +      * This fixes an issue with the VictronConnect lithium preset
 +      * Setting it to 0% skips the recondition stage, if enabled
 +    * Add Keep Alive support
 +      * This improves bluetooth connectability, with VictronConnect
 +    * Add support for settings changed
 +  *  Add remark about voltages when charger has multiple outputs
 +
 +
 +Solar Chargers:
 +  * Add firmware v1.53 update:
 +    * Remove improvement, added on v1.52, of the remote voltage sense compensation to speed up filtering. That improvement is postponed for now.
 +    * Fix bugs that caused the MPPT Control to get stuck on “CONNECTING” as well as “FETCHING HISTORY”. The changes are (a) that text messages are now always sent every 2 seconds and no longer interrupted when a hex message is received; and (b) the History total data is now always announced together with the history day0 data.
 +    * Includes changes in firmware v1.52:
 +      * Include low power mode for the small models. Idle current consumption (when PV is around 0V) is reduced by around 70%.
 +      * Improve remote voltage sense compensation to speed up filtering when necessary and improve voltage control response.
 +      * Change 100/20 48V default battery changed from 48V to auto detection.
 +      * Fix remote voltage compensation for small models. The voltage compensation of small MPPTs did not consider some current depended voltage drops, causing the MPPT to have a higher voltage setpoint, up to 200mV, depending on the MPPT current. This FW version fix that.
 +
 +  * Add firmware v3.02 for VE.Can and *.xup based firmware MPPT models:
 +    * Fix bugs that caused the MPPT Control to get stuck on “CONNECTING” as well as “FETCHING HISTORY”. The changes are (a) that text messages are now always sent every 2 seconds and no longer interrupted when a hex message is received; and (b) the History total data is now always announced together with the history day0 data.
 +    * Fix bug that resulted in the MPPT Control always showing the history of the moment that the MPPT Control was first connected to the MPPT. (Fix announce of day 0 history data)
 +    * Includes changes firmware v3.01:
 +      * Change firmware version number to v3.xx range to avoid confusion between different solar charger models.
 +      * Improve error 28 trigger conditions.
 +      * Improve detection of error 38/39 for 250V models.
 +
 +  * Gray out Rx & Tx settings menu entry instead of hiding them when connected via VRM.
 +  * Fix trend graphs are not shown in demo MPPTs
 +  * Show load output power
 +
 +SmartLithium:
 +  * Add codes to errors and improve error descriptions
 +
 +VE.Smart Bluetooth Dongle:
 +  * Add firmware v2.26 update
 +    * Prevent switching to unsupported baud rates
 +    * Support keep alive mechanism
 +    * Fix to prevent fragmented responses which could cause failing update over BLE of attached product
 +
 +MPPT Control:
 +  * Add support for firmware updates
 +  * Add firmware v1.02 update (mandatory):
 +    * Solves MPPT Control getting stuck in "FETCHING HISTORY". Note that there are also fw updates for the solar chargers that solve this bug, but for the VE.Can and *.xup based MPPTs also a different —and more prevalent- bug leading to the MPPT Control not fetching the new history from the MPPT, causing the MPPT Control to always show the history of the moment the MPPT Control was first connected to the MPPT. Because of that, and because updating an MPPT Control requires the power cable that is supplied with it but most likely not installed in most applications, we recommend to update the solar charger first; and then only update MPPT Control in case its still having issues.
 +    * Makes the communication more robust
 +
 +MPPT RS:
 +  * Add display settings menu
 +    * Include temperature unit setting
 +
 +Inverter RS:
 +  * Add display settings menu
 +    * Include temperature unit setting
 +
 +VE.Bus inverter/chargers:
 +  * Fix L3 power output shows the value of L2 output
 +
 +Battery monitors:
 +  * Fix battery current can't be set higher than 999Ah on iOS when region is set to Sweden.

 +
 +__Changes__
 +
 +Orion Smart:
 +  * Add Orion Smart firmware v1.06 update:
 +    * Fix an issue that causes the engine always considered to be shutdown. This issue only affected systems with engine shutdown detection function enabled and the "Shutdown voltage" set to a value above or equal to 13.30V when updating to the previous v1.05 firmware. Systems using default settings are not affected.
