Description

Allen-Bradley Driver

Logix v21 Driver
Fixed
Fix subscription bookkeeping bug that lead to bad quality diagnostic tags.
PLC5 Driver
Fixed
Fixed a rare deadlock when PLC5 driver loses its connection.

Ignition Platform

Alarm Voice
Feature
Voice notification profiles can now better deal with script elements that are blank. This should enable use with non-phone based SIP annunciators, as the script can be made to not request user feedback.
Alarming
Fixed
Fixed an issue where alarm properties were not being logged to the journal during acknowledge events - most notably, the label property.
EAM
Feature
Added the system.eam.runTask() scripting function.
EAM
Fixed
Exception is now caught and logged gracefully during EAM upgrade of system with manually added pr_restype index.
Misc
Fixed
Fixed an issue where Tag History Sync was always storing data with an Analog mode setting.
NJ Driver
Fixed
Fixed an issue where attempts at reading DATE_AND_TIME tags failed silently, instead of returning an error message. These reads should now return Bad_ConfigError.
NJ Driver
Fixed
Fixed a rare issue where the driver would remain in an 'Idle' state.
Named Queries
Fixed
Fixed the formatting of a debugging message.
Tags
Feature
Tag changes from scripts invoked by clients / designers are now audited.
Tags
Fixed
Resolved an issue where system.tag.readAll() on individual bits inside of an array would falsely report NULL, instead of the value on the bits
Tags
Fixed
Fixed an issue where 'grandchild' or deeper UDTs would incorrectly export with their parent's overrides as their own, causing issues when re-imported.

Modbus Driver

Modbus Driver v2
Fixed
Mapped Diagnostics Context keys were missing from some logging events. They have now been added back in.

OPC-UA

Client
Feature
Added "Connect Timeout" and "Acknowledge Timeout" to advanced OPC UA connection settings.

SFC

Engine
Fixed
A persisted SFC instance no longer throws an error on gateway startup if it is waiting between two transitions when the chart was persisted on gateway shutdown.

Vision

Components
Feature
Vision alarm status table now has a "durationFormat" setting to control how the "active duration" and "unacked duration" columns display their duration.
Components
Fixed
Resolved an issue where certain conditions would cause the PDF Viewer component to erroneously state that a PDF was corrupted or not supported.
