One of the major impacts in the near future to expect if moving to core 2.7.1+

  1. Deprecate (slow) SPIFFS. To use LittleFS => loosing stored SPIFF data

However, FS will be reformated and there is no procedure to transform an already existing SPIFFS FS into a LittleFS one.

How to change in code

Just replace all occurrence of SPIFFS by LittleFS in your code.

  1. Libraries relying on SPIFFS to store Credentials and libraries to be changed with stored data loss. OK if use EEPROM option.

Not affected if using these libraries:

The new core 2.7.2 is just a bug-fixing minor release, no breaking change. The transition is smooth and safe.
Already testing with several libraries without any issue yet

  1. ESP_WiFiManager
  2. Blynk_WM
  3. ESP_DoubleResetDetector
