Posted by Wouter Debie, Last modified by Wouter Debie on 24 April 2019 01:34 PM

2.9.26 (2019-03-18)

Fixes

Server

  • Fix TCP performance drops that sometimes occurred when the "SACK" option is enabled

Meetingpoint

  • Support for Android 9.
  • Added support for Fedora 28 | 29

2.9.24 (2019-02-27)

Fixes

Server

  • byteblower-configurator marked the ByteBlower interfaces as unusable when the port configuration was missing.

Meetingpoint

  • The meetingpoint did not allow to run tests on newer Linux distributions except Ubuntu.  Now Debian 9 is also marked as supported.

2.9.20 (2019-02-05)

Fixes

Server

  • Your capture could contain frames from before you started the capture. Those where old packages that where still in the buffer. These packages are now discarded
  • Added support for Napatech NT-20E3-PTP cards
  • Added support for 4100 with new motherboard
  • Latency doesn't work when combined with size modifiers. Timestamp was injected at the wrong position. This is fixed by placing the timestamp again at the end of the frame
  • Multiple queries of IGMP and MDL could result in a crash of the system. This is resolved 


2.9.18 (2018-12-04)

Fixes

Server

  • Fixed a crash when an Nbase-T enabled port was created outside the standard range.


2.9.16 (2018-11-20)

Fixes

Server

  • Improved performance of triggers (IPv6) when multiple flows with the same frame are generated by the GUI.

Enhancements

Server

  • Improved TCP Delayed ACK


2.9.14 (2018-11-20)

Fixes

Server

  • Improved performance of triggers when multiple flows with the same frame are generated by the GUI.
  • Fixed IPv6 source address selection. This caused problems in e.g. multicast.


2.9.10 (2018-10-29)

Fixes

Server

  • Fixed TCP Delayed Ack on ByteBlower 3100 and 3200 series servers

Enhancements

Meetingpoint

  • A wireless endpoint running on macOS Mojave is now supported by the Meetingpoint.

2.9.8 (2018-10-04)

Fixes

MeetingPoint

  • Meetingpoint could report a device in starting-state. But this device was already running. The state stayed in starting and resulted in a GUI that kept on running. This is resolved

Server

  • Fixing a server crash when setting a frame which was 0 bytes long. Now an ConfigError is thrown.
  • The timestamp injected for latency measurement on a 2100 and 4100 ByteBlower server could be off when Software Timestamping was enabled in the ByteBlower server preferences. This issue is fixed.
  • Fixed an issue where it was impossible to add a size modifier on the stream when the MTU of a port was set smaller than 1500 bytes.

Enhancements

MeetingPoint

  • Added support for iOS12

2.9.6 (2018-09-13)

Fixes

MeetingPoint

  • When canceling a scenario and restarting, the meetingpoint could crash due to incorrect cleanup. This memory issue is fixed

Server

  • Running the configurator could cause traffic to stop on 1300/3100/3200

2.9.4 (2018-09-04)

Fixes

MeetingPoint

  • Having multiple API/GUI-clients could result in failure of the wireless tests. Lock of a device wasn't guaranteed. This is now fixed

Server

  • Schedule groups now start all streams again
  • TCP will select the correct IPv6 address to use depending on the destination. Unique Local or Global address

2.9.2 (2018-08-07)

Enhancements

Meetingpoint

  • Added support for Ubuntu 18.04

Operating system and updater

  • Configurator
    • Providing progress when reading the current configuration at start-screen
    • Minimize the number of reads of the current configuration. Making the configurator to load faster

Fixes

Operating system and updater

  • Fixed the series detector. Now correclty detects the 1300 and 1200 systems again
  • Configurator
    • In rare cases the configurator of the 1300/3100 would hang on its welcome-screen.

2.9.0 (2018-07-03)

Enhancements

Server Application

  • Improved performance and stability on all series
  • Greatly improved performance on 3100/3200 series.
  • 2100 and 4100 series now perform software-based timestamp injection. This enables us to fix the L4 checksum after timestamp injection. The trade-off is that the timestamps are less precise. A config file option is provided to re-enable hardware timestamping if desired.
  • New capture API (PacketDump) that enables packet capture of all packets (Rx and Tx) on a ByteBlower interface

Operating system and updater

  • Improving the update handling. Updates from the GUI will be faster in future releases.
  • European law (GDPR) specifies we should inform you about the statistics we collect during update and the support uploads. The server informs you at login now.
  • byteblower-update now supports the --help option
  • byteblower-configurator now shows the API name of the ByteBlower-Interface in the port configuration
  • Updater-texts and -Menu items are more user-friendly now

Fixes

Server Application

  • No more "Scheduling Conflict" errors on 2100 and 4100 series. Under the new scheduling system this error cannot happen anymore.
  • Fixed hang that sometimes occurred when starting an ICMP (ping) session.
  • Fixed crash that could occur when a HTTP client session was destroyed while in "Connecting" state.

Operating system and updater

  • Protection against modification of startup-scripts. At boot original scripts are restored
  • Updater
    • You now get a confirmation when the update succeeded
    • Answering NO to the question "Are you sure you want to update" resulted in a closing of the updater-shell. This is fixed and you return to the main menu

ByteBlower 1100 End Of Life

    ByteBlower 1100 has been marked as EOL. The latest supported version for this system is 2.8.2
