2013-12-13 - Version 1.3.3

Bug fixes:

  • Preconfiguring the Listen-Only mode was not being done fast enough, which could cause bus errors when the bit rate was not correct

2013-09-25 - Version 1.3.2

2013-09-06 - Version 1.3.1

Enhancements:

  • The CAN Trace records status errors (BUSLIGHT, BUSHEAVY, BUSOFF) too
  • Some compatibly issues were solved

Bug fixes:

  • An incompatibility issue with the Fixed Hardware-Handle Procedure was corrected. This was causing some channels to be marked as available when they were not
  • Problem in header file for Python corrected. The functions GetValue and SetValue were failing and returning the error PCAN_ERROR_ILLPARAMVAL, when the Parameters PCAN_TRACE_LOCATION and/or PCAN_HARDWARE_NAME were used
  • Sent messages were not included in the Trace file, if the status of the CAN bus was BUSHEAVY, BUSLIGHT, or BUSOFF


2013-03-27 - Version 1.3.0

  • It is now possible to physically identify an USB channels, by blinking its associated LED. The use of this feature is achieved using the functions CAN_SetValue and CAN_GetValue
  • Some compatibility issues were solved

Enhancements:

  • The logging file shows now the API version being used, including platform version (32- or 64-bits)
  • Internal code-optimizations

Bug fix:

  • Problem in header file for C/C++, when compiling as  C Code. Default-Parameters within the function CAN_Initialize will only used when C++ is declared (Compiled as C++ Code)
