Traccar 4.12 is available for download. With this release we are removing some old code, so please make sure to read the whole post to see if you are affected.
More features migrated to the modern web app:
- All reports, including export support
- Drivers management
- Computed attributes
- User registration from login screen
Notable changes on the back-end side:
- Enabled support for HTTP SMS API for commands
- Better logging for forwarding
We are also in the process of migrating configuration parameters to a new system where we will potentially be able to generate documentation for all available configuration parameters. We had issues with undocumented configuration parameters for a long time and we are trying to fix it. As we are going through this process, we decided to simplify and remove some old code, including some features that you might be using, so please check before upgrading.
- Removed CSV and GPX export - part of the code was not used much and was poorly maintained, so we decided to remove for now until we implement a better version of export
- Removed XML attributes support - functionality hasn't been used by official Traccar version for a very very long time and removing it unlocks some code improvements
- Removed JNDI support - same reason as above
- Removed some legacy confuguration parameters - we removed quite a few configuration parameters that are deprecated or not recommended
- Removed SMPP support - the library that we were using for SMPP support hasn't been maintained for a long time, so this is out of our control, but you can use HTTP API instead that most SMS services provide
If we removed a feature that you really need and rely on, please let us know on the forum or GitHub.
