What's New in FIN 5.1.5

Release-KeyVisual-ipdate 23-Lrg copy

The FIN 5.1.5 release is here! This particular release is considered a 'service pack' release. Service packages typically contain minor bug fixes and feature enhancements. Great news for users of 5.1+, no migration is required! 

Here are some changes you’ll find in the new release. See all of the changes in FIN 5.1.5 in our online documentation here.

Schedule app

The Schedule app's weekly view has been modified to display the value for each of the weekly events. This applies to boolean, numeric, and enumerated values, which makes it easier to tell what the new state or value is for the current/upcoming period. Check out our docs here for a step-by-step guide.

KNX connector

We made some important changes to the KNX connector to enhance both functionality and performance. For a full list of KNX updates, check our docs here.

  •  A new interface has been added to the KNX connector tree, which enables custom unit bindings to be defined in order to better support binding units from a KNX project file to the appropriate FIN database point.
  • The KNX connector now automatically reestablishes the connection if the communication is lost. Previously this issue would manifest in the form of curVals not updating; this build should significantly improve that behavior.
  • Additionally, errors associated with KNX should be more verbose. 


We also made updates to several related docs. A complete list can be found here.
