AltOS 1.1 — Bug fixes and some nice new features

Bdale and I are pleased to announce the release of AltOS version 1.1.

AltOS is the core of the software for all of the Altus Metrum products. It consists of cc1111-based micro-controller firmware and Java-based ground station software.

We’ve spent the last flying season chatting with people flying TeleMetrum and TeleMini boards and they came up with some great ideas to add to the system.

AltOS Firmware — Features and fixes

There are bug fixes in both ground station and flight software, so you should plan on re-flashing both units at some point. However, there aren’t any incompatible changes, so you don’t have to do it all at once.

AltosUI — Easier to use

AltosUI has also seen quite a bit of work for the 1.1 release. There aren’t any huge new features, but some activities are restructured to make them easier to navigate. And, of course, we’ve fixed a bunch of bugs.
