Traccar 4.2

November 10, 2018

Traccar GPS tracking server version 4.2 is available for download.

As some of you already know, for this release we mostly focused on fixing issues introduced in version 4.1 and making a stable server for everyone to upgrade to. Fixes include, but not limited to:

In addition to fixes and improvement in existing features, there are two small, but important and long awaited new features:

There is also one new GPS protocol added to Traccar system. It's called XRB 28. Unfortunately not much information is available about the vendor and devices that use this protocol.

On an unrelated note, recently Kristof Beiglböck published a book called GPS Tracking with Java EE Components: Challenges of Connected Cars. It is about building GPS tracking system using Java. The book has a lot of technical information on how systems like Traccar work under the hood. Author graciously provided us with a discount code "AT524" that you can use to purchase the book directly from the publisher. The discount cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer or discount.
