Release Notes for ZentriOS-WZ-3.3

Commands and variables that were removed in ZentriOS-WZ-3.2 have been restored in ZentriOS-WZ-3.3. Exceptions are:

New telemetry commands and variables and Native APIs allow telemetry information to be posted to the DMS. See dms telemetry command, and variables dms.telemetry.adc_mask , dms.telemetry.data_mask , dms.telemetry.gpio_mask , and dms.telemetry.interval .

A network ARP lock helps avoid ARP delays when streaming. See network.arp.lock_enabled and network.arp.table_size.

DHCP and DNS details are cached to improve connection efficiency. See wlan.dhcp.cache_enabled, and the network_flush command.

For general changes, see Fixes and Improvements.

For new variables, see Variables Added below.

TopicDescription
Command HelpCommand help displays a link to the related online documentation. If you require offline documentation, please request a PDF.
Soft APOnly one SoftAP client is allowed during web setup
The 'SoftAP stopped' message is now not printed when the Soft AP is already stopped
DHCP ServerFixed a problem where the DHCP Server failed if no Requested IP option was supplied in the request command
ZAP SettingsFixed a problem where a hardfault occured if multiple zap settings, with different filename lengths, are added to a project.
wlan.hide_passkey responsewlan.hide_passkey now returns success if set to 1 when already 1
TCP stackData is now passed to the app when RST received
TimeFixed a problem where time.last_set was improperly set on startup. Now time.last_set is modified only when manually updated, either with set time.rtc or from a NTP update.
System LogsFixed a problem with invalid, blank system logs when using TCP server and HTTP REST API.
System MessagesFixed a problem where system messages occasionally failed to print
DHCP cachingThe DHCP IP address and lease can be cached to save time on networks with slow DHCP. See wlan.dhcp.cache_enabled variable, network_flush command
DNS cachingResolved DNS queries are cached in RAM until their TTL expires. See : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time_to_live#DNS_records for more info. See network_flush command
OTA manifest json encodingFixed a problem where OTA manifest filenames with certain characters caused OTA requests to fail, by json encoding filenames
File stream readsFile stream reads return more than 1460 bytes of data if available. i.e. stream_read <handle> <read size> data returned = MIN(<read size>, <file bytes remaining>).
Azure TLSFixed a problem where setting network.tls.version to 10 (version 1.0) caused a failure with Azure. TLS1.2 ciphers are now always enabled.
izap fileThe izap file now appears in the ls command listing.
The izap file name is now displayed in zap.info output
zn_settings_set return valueFixed a problem where zn_settings_set_XXX returned CMD_SET_OK. Now it correctly returns ZOS_SUCCESS
