CleverTerm ChangeLog

Please note that the changelog below applies to both Windows and Linux versions.

Version 2.4.4

7 January 2021

A major bug in the windows version 2.4.3 caused a truncation of sent byte sequences. This concerns not only manually input data strings but also transmitted files. We recomment an update to 2.4.4.
  • Send sequences are cut off during transmission. This happens especially with lower baud rates and concerns only Windows OS - fixed!
  • Dialog scripts were not updated when installing a new version to keep user modifications. Now the script files are organized depending on the program version. An update gives the user always the newest script files without loosing own modifications.
  • Linux only: CleverTerm sends all characters in terminal mode in upper cases - This is fixed!
  • Windows: USB to serial converter of the type CP120X USB to UART Bridge was not detected by the program - fixed!
  • Windows: Improved hardware detection.
  • Write Multiple Coils function in Modbus dialog with wrong coil number index (starts with 0 instead of 1) - fixed!
  • Write Multiple Register in Modbus dialog produces wrong byte count - this is corrected!
  • Modbus Read/write Multiple Registers function completed.

Version 2.4.3

5 September 2020

  • Linux only: CleverTerm did not detect /dev/ttyACMx devices (for instance Arduino UNO) - This is fixed!
  • Linux only: Fix note properly shown or missed device information in the serial port/device selector.
  • Keep the received/sent data and error numbers when the device is closed (stop connection). Data and error counter are now reseted/cleared only when reopen a device (start connection).

Version 2.4.2

17 August 2020

  • Linux only: CleverTerm does not start caused by a broken link to the provided and - fixed!

  • Reduce CPU last when idle
  • Use the common OS place (local user data) to store the dialogs instead of a folder under the installation direcory.
  • Truncate very long telegrams in the telegram window by an adjustable limit to avoid a slow down of the GUI.

  • Add a random data script to send random sequences of a predefined length.
