G'day all,

 

Just letting you know that a new build has been released (20240424): https://chowmain.software/drivers/control4-lighting-leaf

This mainly improves the feedback of the lights and includes our new performance code. Full list of changes are:

  • [Control] Improve Realtime Feedback channel to resolve a potential issue with communications dropping out, which also affected control (Agent)
  • [Bug] Fix Misc Bugs (All)
  • [Improvement] Improve compatibility with old Announcement Agent installations (Sensor)
  • [Improvement] Improve Variable Handling (All)
  • [Troubleshooting] Major Improvements to Diagnostics (All)
  • [Misc] Add more defensive code to protect against potential issues (All)
  • [Performance] Introduce some MAJOR performance improvements. Some logging tests of 10000x logs demonstrated speed gains from 6600ms to 60ms processing time. This is seperate from some other previous improvements yielding improvements of 680ms to 47ms on a Core series for another type of operation. Some other tests showed speed gains of 22ms (best case) on EA series controllers to less than 1ms average for certain operations.
  • [Performance] Reduce HTTP connections required
