February 2021

In addition to a new official Portuguese translation, we've got lots of tweaks and UI improvements. You can also now enable/disable map providers for the Fleet app, giving you more control of the end user experience. Read more highlights here or dive into the details with the release notes below.

New

Fleet

  • Map providers can now be enabled/disabled (specifically for the Fleet app) on the server using the _FleetAppUseMap privilege. Supported maps are Google Maps and ArcGIS map.

Localization

  • Portuguese' is completely updated. The language flavor is Brazilian Portuguese. The separate 'Portuguese Brazil' language is removed.

General

  • Deploy framework can now check if GpsGate Server is running on a server with .net48 runtime installed.
  • Warning in Site Admin when using MySQL 8.0.23, which is not compatible with GpsGate.
Improved

Localization

  • Removed 'Espanol 2' language.
  • Language key updates (Chinese, German).

User Experience

  • Better error message when a .net Framework is missing, including a link to download page.
  • Improved performance executing Event Rules.
  • Added DEBUG: to messages that are not errors in geofence cache log.
  • Performance improvements. Faster loading.

Privileges

Do not allow login to the desktop application (Vehicle Tracker) while having only the _MobileLogin privilege. Previously having the _MobileLogin would allow login to the desktop application. As this is no longer the case, some roles might have to be updated accordingly.

  • _MobileLogin is required to access the Mobile site
  • _WebLogin is required to access the Desktop site

General

  • Geoserver Map can now opt-out of using background color (bgColor) for possibly better tile caching.
  • Sharing location (publish plugin): All scripts are now loaded from relative paths. Allows for UI port forwarding.
  • Set a capacity for device processing queues. Once the capacity is reached, the device will be disconnected and will require reconnecting.
  • Improved Saml logging.
  • Disable Event Rule HTTP notifier (Command Notifier -> Custom Server -> http) if there are 10 consecutive notification failures within a 10 minute period. Re-enabling the notifier after 10 minutes.
  • utf8mb4 connection string charset for newer MySql versions.
Fixed

Fleet & mobile

  • Fixed an issue in mobile causing IIS not booting up and register components as expected. This caused issues like EventRules having Geofence Expression could not be created or modified.'
  • Geofences on Google Maps should be displayed with the correct color all the time now.
  • Avoid app crashing when a geofence group is deleted on the server.
  • Touches outside a bottom sheet should now minimize the bottom sheet.

User experience
