🚧 Changes:

CCU/HomeMatic service changes:

  • integrated update of OCCU firmware to 3.53.30-2 version with full compatibility to the CCU3 3.53.30 firmware which comes with the following changes:
    • updated ReGaHss logic engine R1.00.0388.0224 (Sep 29 2020) version with the following changes:
      • fixed a zero-day issue in the internal script parser which didn’t work correctly with nested method calls if the outer and inner method were allowed to take 2+ parameter. This created invalid runtime errors while the execution of these nested calls should have been perfectly valid (#922).
  • largely reworked/simplified the RF module initialisation/setup so that the new detect_radio_module tool kindly developed by @alexreinert is used while keeping the basic functionality to combine multiple RF modules for a shared DutyCycle use. In addition, the device type (HB-RF-USB, GPIO, etc.) will be put into a new variable in /var/hm_mode. Furthermore we now can correctly query a HM-MOD-RPI-PCB connected to a HB-RF-USB or HB-RF-USB-2 (#910, #911).
  • slightly increased the timeout for the RF module firmware update process so that a firmware update of the old HM-MOD-RPI-PCB is guaranteed to proceed in time.
  • fixed /etc/init.d/S06InitSystem to make sure a missing /usr/local/sdcard/measurement directory exists so that the cronjob and HMIPServer init script can copy the content of the /tmp/measurement to the permanent storage (#913).
  • integrated a new OCCU bugfix patch which will fix the BidCos-RF description file of the HM-OUT-CFM-TW device by using 0xA4 instead of 0x24 for the index of LONG_ACT_TYPE (#915, @jp112sdl).
  • integrated a fix for the Mediola NEO CCU Addon so that it will not be included in the standard system configuration backup since the Addon doesn’t really contain any user configuration, thus can be omitted from being part of the backup.
  • added /usr/local/eQ-3-Backup to the standard paths being omitted from the system config backup. This should fix issues where upon switching from a CCU3 firmware to RaspberryMatic resulted in this path being part of the config backup.

WebUI changes:

  • added new 0080-WebUI-Fix-SideIncOpenTag WebUI patch to fix an invalid placed open tag < character in an emitted html statement in side.inc (@jp112sdl).
  • added new 0081-WebUI-Fix-DecalcificationTimeMinute00 WebUI patch fixing the selection of 00 minutes in the decalcification UI (#931, @jp112sdl).
  • added new 0082-WebUI-Fix-SetVisibilityScriptError WebUI patch fixing ScriptRuntimeError outputs resulting from trying to change the visibility based on the channel id of a device (#919, @jp112sdl).
  • added new 0083-WebUI-Fix-DeviceTestScriptError WebUI patch fixing ScriptRuntimeError outputs resulting from trying to apply a test on a device rather than on a single channel (#939, @jp112sdl).
  • slight improvement of 0038-WebUI-DeviceOverview-StatusColumn WebUI patch to check for a non existing rssiListHmRF variable as otherwise a js exception is raised in the WebUI.
  • added a new 0084-WebUI-Fix-InvalidObjectCrashes WebUI bugfix patch which should workaround/fix issues where the room view could not be displayed anymore if an added channel hasn’t any valid linked device anymore (#944).
  • fixed a bug in the 0038-WebUI-DeviceOverview-StatusColumn WebUI patch which didn’t return a valid JSON output for the new HmIP-RCV device in Interface.rssiInfo queries (#957).
  • integrated a new 0085-WebUI-AddonPopupScrollable WebUI patch which modifies the Addon maintenance/install popup so that the content of the popup will be scrollable. This should improve usability in case many addon packages are installed and thus the popup would have to be moved in multiple steps (#592, @jp112sdl).

Operating system changes:

  • added the missing E1000E package to get the network interface working again in the recovery system for the ova/intelnuc platform.
  • added more kernel config options to streamline all NUC hardware support somewhat more.
  • added buildroot patch to update ethtool to version 5.8 to fix the netlink error: No such file or directory error which appeared with 5.7 (cf. https://www.spinics.net/lists/netdev/msg659759.html).
  • added HyperV-PCI kernel config options to optimize use of the OVA variants in HyperV setups.
  • enabled drivers for Intel Network devices with Virtual Function for OVA platform.
  • added a commented out dtparam=sd_poll_once=on entry in /boot/config.txt to let users know how to poll only once for a missing sd card in case USB drive boot is used with a RaspberryPi.
  • integrated a minor fix for the /bin/updateTZ.sh script which should catch rare cases where an empty /etc/config/TZ file could have caused a situation of an invalid /etc/config/localtime symlinking. In addition, updateTZ.sh will now only update files in /etc/config in case something was actually changed. This should omit write operations upon startup. (cf. https://homematic-forum.de/forum/viewtopic.php?f=65&t=61426).
  • added support for Intel NUC6CAYH model which stalled upon bootup due to issues with the i915 DRM driver. Now we completely omit the DRM driver and just rely on stupid framebuffer devices for a HDMI debug output. In addition, more IWLWIFI firmwares were added so that also the wifi of the NUC6CAYH should be supported now (#930).
  • fixed an issue with OS time synchronisation which didn’t work correctly anymore as soon as a network link up/down event was identified during runtime. This caused the RTC time to be read out regularly instead which also was incorrectly written back by the NTP because it was written in local time rather than in UTC time.
  • slightly reworked the eQ3StartNetwork and eQ3StopNetwork ifup/ifdown scripts to deal better with static IP address setups which could explain certain issues people were having with not having a link available during bootup (#471).
  • modified the standard .ovf template file to use ovf:id=99 in OperatingSystemSection so that a 2.x/3.x/4.x Linux system is assumed and thus VMXNET3 can be manually selected as a network interface in vmWare ESXi (https://homematic-forum.de/forum/viewtopic.php?f=65&t=61792)
  • fixed issue where upon an unclean shutdown the corresponding status file was not correctly cleared and thus the log file was continued to be filled with unclean shutdown events (#955).
  • integrated a fix for S01InitHost in the recovery system where could happen that at the time the lsblk command is executed the partuuid could not be extracted yet, thus we retrieve the mmcX string using the mountpoint only.
  • we now store DHCP provided NTP server addresses in /var/etc/ntp-dhcp.conf and use this file in the chrony/NTP server startup and add these servers as local NTP servers to the complete NTP server list. This should further improve the NTP server setup in user environments where the NTP server address equals the central router and where this router provides his own address as a valid NTP server.
  • updated U-Boot bootloader for all supported target platforms (RaspberryPi, Tinkerboard) to latest 2020.10 version.
  • updated buildroot/Linux environment to latest 2020.08.1 version.
  • updated Linux kernel versions to new major LTS 5.4.x version (5.4.70) for all supported platforms.
  • updated Raspberry Pi kernel+firmware to latest 1.20200902 version
