New Blynk Library Release v1.2.0

With love from Ukraine :blue_heart::yellow_heart:

In this release

  • New Features :sparkles::sparkles::sparkles:
    • Added universal ArduinoClient examples - a convenient way to use
      ANY Arduino connectivity or shield (even if it’s not directly supported by Blynk).
    • You can configure multiple connection types, i.e. WiFi + Ethernet + Cellular :fire:
    • Command grouping
    • Improved network compatibility when using an insecure TCP connection
    • BlynkParam argument support for BlynkConsole
  • Updated examples (finally! :grin: )
    • Added TimeInput, TimeAndLocation examples
    • Simplified the Stroboscope example, also to show-off the BlynkTimer::Handle usage
    • Replaced UIPEthernet examples with EthernetENC
    • Updated HTTP examples to use Blynk 2.0 HTTP API
  • Blynk.Edgent improvements:
    • BLYNK_DEVICE_NAME setting is changed to BLYNK_TEMPLATE_NAME to eliminate confusion
    • Fix ESP32 losing the configuration after OTA in rare cases
    • Improved compatibility with the latest ESP32 and ESP8266 Arduino Core
  • Cleanup :broom:
    • Removed old and outdated APIs, widgets that don’t exist anymore
    • Switched to using blynk.cloud server by default (the blynk-cloud.com fallback is removed)
  • AVR improvements
    • Reduce the amount of timers in BlynkTimer to 8 for AVR devices (to save RAM)
    • Fix 64-bit integers handling on 8-bit platforms

Remember to regularly update your IDE, Libraries and Boards!

Hello,

Our hearts are with Ukraine and we believe you will succeed.

Thank you for Blynk.
Is it necessary to update the library? If not, will Blynk 2 work with the old library?

Sincerely,
Kamran Ibadov

Blynk IoT requires library version 1.x.x but it’s always a good idea to be on the latest version of the library, especially as new projects will give configuration firmware that contains BLYNK_DEVICE_NAME rather than BLYNK_TEMPLATE_NAME so will give compilation errors with earlier versions of the library.

Pete.

Hi Volodymyr,
i’ve installed last release as I was interested on Multinetwok connectivity. My project use a TTGO-T800 to connect via Wifi or GSM to the Internet to publish some data. I enjoied using BlynkEdgeNT for configuring connection but the only way to use both connection is loading a different script for WIFi or GSM. I wonder if implementation of Multinetwork Connectivity is compatible with EdgeNT. Also, as in your example script suggest to not subsitute any of “BlynkSimple…” header I have to ditch use of TinyGSM?

Edgent for Multi-Connectivity is in the works, and is already very powerfull. We’ll announce the details in ~1 month if everything goes well.
Regarding TTGO-T800, do you mean the TTGO TCall-SIM800 device?

Yes, I have a project using a series of sensors (laser OPC, gas, co2, humidity…) using all buses: I2C , SPI, Serial and GSM/WiFi, and a touchscreen display. So was a problem using it all in the same time, but finally i resolved everything apart from external connectivity.
