Release Notes#

RAIL Library 2.17.0 GA#

June 05, 2024

Release Highlights#

  • Added support of collision detection for concurrent PHYs on the EFR32xG25 parts.

  • Added support for additional Coex TX and RX metrics events to the Coexistence Utility component.

  • Removed support for EFR32 Series-1 Platforms.

  • Updated some RAIL APIs to better prepare for future API changes while retaining backwards compile-time compatibility. See Modified section of API Changes for more details.

  • Bugfixes and minor improvements.

Deprecation Notes#

  • The RAIL 2.x API is planned for deprecation in the 24Q4-GA release (December 2024). At that time, the new RAIL 3.0 API will be released for all supported chips along with a RAIL 2.x compatibility layer and migration guide.

    • The goal of this new API is to get rid of some unused features, add better support for concurrent listening use cases, and to simplify channel and PA configurations.

    • The migration is intended to be straight forward and simple for the majority of customers. However, in some cases manual help might be required to ease this transition.
