API Changes

Changes in this release

  • Following functions in UART Asynchronous API are using microseconds to represent timeout instead of milliseconds: * uart_tx() * uart_rx_enable()

  • Replaced custom LwM2M float32_value type with a native double type.

  • Added function for getting status of USB device remote wakeup feature.

  • Added ranges and dma-ranges as invalid property to be used with DT_PROP_LEN() along reg and interrupts.

  • The existing crc16() and crc16_ansi() functions have been modified. The former has a new signature. The latter now properly calculates the CRC-16-ANSI checksum. A new function, crc16_reflect(), has been introduced to calculated reflected CRCs.

  • GATT callbacks bt_gatt_..._func_t would previously be called with argument conn = NULL in the event of a disconnect. This was not documented as part of the API. This behavior is changed so the conn argument is provided as normal when a disconnect occurs.

Removed APIs in this release

  • The following Kconfig options related to radio front-end modules (FEMs) were removed:

    • CONFIG_BT_CTLR_GPIO_PA

    • CONFIG_BT_CTLR_GPIO_PA_PIN

    • CONFIG_BT_CTLR_GPIO_PA_POL_INV

    • CONFIG_BT_CTLR_GPIO_PA_OFFSET

    • CONFIG_BT_CTLR_GPIO_LNA

    • CONFIG_BT_CTLR_GPIO_LNA_PIN

    • CONFIG_BT_CTLR_GPIO_LNA_POL_INV

    • CONFIG_BT_CTLR_GPIO_LNA_OFFSET

    • CONFIG_BT_CTLR_FEM_NRF21540

    • CONFIG_BT_CTLR_GPIO_PDN_PIN

    • CONFIG_BT_CTLR_GPIO_PDN_POL_INV

    • CONFIG_BT_CTLR_GPIO_CSN_PIN

    • CONFIG_BT_CTLR_GPIO_CSN_POL_INV

    • CONFIG_BT_CTLR_GPIO_PDN_CSN_OFFSET

    This FEM configuration is hardware description, and was therefore moved to devicetree. See the nordic,nrf-radio devicetree binding’s fem property for information on what to do instead on the Nordic open source controller.

  • Removed Kconfig option CONFIG_USB_UART_CONSOLE. Option CONFIG_USB_UART_CONSOLE was only relevant for console driver when CDC ACM UART is used as backend. Since the behavior of the CDC ACM UART is changed so that it more closely mimics the real UART controller, option is no longer necessary.

  • Removed Kconfig option CONFIG_OPENOCD_SUPPORT in favor of CONFIG_DEBUG_THREAD_INFO.

  • Removed flash_write_protection_set() along with the flash write protection implementation handler.

  • Removed CAN_BUS_UNKNOWN and changed the signature of can_get_state() to return an error code instead.

  • Removed DT_CHOSEN_ZEPHYR_CANBUS_LABEL in favor of utilizing DEVICE_DT_GET.

  • Removed CONFIG_LOG_MINIMAL. Use CONFIG_LOG_MODE_MINIMAL instead.

Build and Infrastructure

  • Build system

    • New CMake extension functions:

      • dt_alias()

      • target_sources_if_dt_node()

    • The following CMake extension functions now handle devicetree aliases:

      • dt_prop()

      • dt_num_regs()

      • dt_reg_addr()

      • dt_reg_size()

  • Devicetree

    • Support for the devicetree compatible ti,ina23x has been removed. Instead, use ti,ina230 or ti,ina237.

  • West (extensions)

    • Added support for gd32isp runner

Libraries / Subsystems

  • Management

    • Fixed the mcumgr SMP protocol over serial not adding the length of the CRC16 to packet length.

    • Kconfig option OS_MGMT_TASKSTAT is now disabled by default.

  • Power management

    • Power management resources are now manually allocated by devices using PM_DEVICE_DEFINE, PM_DEVICE_DT_DEFINE or PM_DEVICE_DT_INST_DEFINE. Device instantiation macros take now a reference to the allocated resources. The reference can be obtained using PM_DEVICE_GET, PM_DEVICE_DT_GET or PM_DEVICE_DT_INST_GET. Thanks to this change, devices not implementing support for device power management will not use unnecessary memory.

    • Device runtime power management API error handling has been simplified.

    • pm_device_runtime_enable() suspends the target device if not already suspended. This change makes sure device state is always kept in a consistent state.

    • Improved PM states Devicetree macros naming

    • Added a new API call pm_state_cpu_get_all() to obtain information about CPU power states.

    • pm/device.h is no longer included by device.h, since the device API no longer depends on the PM API.

    • Added support for power domains. Power domains are implemented as simple devices and use the existent PM API for resume and suspend, devices under a power domain are notified when it becomes active or suspended.

    • Added a new action PM_DEVICE_ACTION_TURN_ON. This action is used by power domains to notify devices when it becomes active.

    • Added new API (pm_device_state_lock(), pm_device_state_unlock() and pm_device_state_is_locked()) to lock a device pm state. When the device has its state locked, the kernel will no longer suspend and resume devices when the system goes to sleep and device runtime power management operations will fail.

    • pm_device_state_set() is deprecated in favor of utilizing pm_device_action_run().

    • Proper multicore support. Devices are suspended only when the last active CPU. A cpu parameter was added to Policy and SoC interfaces.

  • Tracing

    • Support all syscalls being traced using the python syscall generator to introduce a tracing hook call.

  • IPC

    • Added IPC service support and RPMsg with static VRINGs backend
