Full Changelog: v0.14.4...v0.15.0-b4

WARNING:
This version includes binaries for ESP8266 which feature double CPU clock frequency (160MHz) distinguished by the _160 name suffix. Although it has been tested on many variants of ESP8266 there may be devices that do not support overclocking the CPU. If your device is in places hard to reach or difficult to flash DO NOT use these binaries unless you test them on a similar device first. And even then there are no guarantees that a particular device will run correctly with overclocked CPU.
In case you do update with 160MHz version and your device fails to boot or operates incorrectly you may need to connect it to a computer and flash it serially using USB connection. Please erase flash prior to doing so.

A huge thank you to the WLED community - to everyone who has contributed to development, documentation and testing, and to all early adopters who provided lots of feedback and sparked many discussions on how to improve things. You all made WLED better and made this version happen! ❤️

      string = hex representation of [WW]RRGGBB
      object = individual channel control {"r":0,"g":127,"b":255,"w":255}, each being optional (valid to send {})
      array = direct channel values [r,g,b,w] (w element being optional)
    • palette cycling (add support for {"seg":[{"pal":"X~Y~"}]} or {"seg":[{"pal":"X~Yr"}]})

NOTE:
Included with this release are bootloaders for S2, S3 and C3 chips as well as partition maps for 4M and 8M flash sizes for them. You will need to flash bootloaders at offset 0x00000 for C3 and S3 and at 0x01000 for S2, partition maps at offset 0x08000, when flashing manually using esptool.

Debug Builds

Debug builds are providing additional diagnostic outputs when connected to a serial monitor by USB.
You can find a few generic debug builds here: https://github.com/srg74/WLED-wemos-shield/tree/master/resources/Firmware/%40Aircoookie/Latest/Debug_builds

How to get a stack dump (crash log with backtrace)

You might be asked for a crash report (backtrace showing the function that crashed) using a debug build. This is only possible when self-compiling WLED in the VSCode+platformio development environment.

In a nutshell, this is what you should do:

  • Find the build environment you want, like env:esp32dev_audioreactive,
  • add -DWLED_DEBUG to build_flags, then click File -> Save All
  • You need to connect your board via USB. OTA is not possible in this case.
  • build and upload from the VSCode IDE (don't upload using other flashing tools).
    image
  • watch the output in the PlatformIO Serial Monitor panel; this should help to better understand what is the problem.
