Venus OS v3.21 - MQTT protocol fix

Good day!

Today we released Venus OS v3.21. It contains just one change:

  • Fix MQTT issue that prevented writing negative numbers over the MQTT protocol. This bug affected systems with customer-own software, for example special control loops that run a different ESS algorithm than the standard Victron one. The bug was introduced per v3.20, last week.


Venus OS v3.20, Orion XS and more

Today released version builds on Venus OS v3.20, which was released last week. That version has multiple highlights, including full support for our new Orion XS 12/12 50A DC-DC Battery Charger as well as completely renewed Marine MFD App.

Read the v3.20 blog post for the full story.
