Dev release of Phoenix for the 2024 FRC Season

This is a dev release of Phoenix 6 to address some recent feedback from teams.
Updating is not required, however if you are observing any symptoms that are addressed in the changelog below, you can update by using the attached vendordep.

This is a dev release (and not a formal release) so that teams impacted by any of the symptoms below can update, without having to wait for the full test plan and eventual formal release.

Major changes include:

288-specific

  • Further improvements to current limit API documentation to include a basic description of when to use the current limit, and a reasonable default and common range of values
  • Improved readability of API documentation
  • Fixed stator current limiting in simulation
  • Fixed simulation reporting a non-zero torque current when motor is coasting
  • Added Ancillary Device Temperature to Talon FX Self Test
  • Reduced memory footprint of signal logger
  • Fixed regression from 232 dev release: Simulated Talon FX devices now reach full speed

232-specific

  • Added ActiveBrake to bridge output status signal
  • Added StaticBrakeDisabled fault status signal, which trips when the static brake is momentarily disabled due to excessive braking current while disabled
  • Fixed CANivore getStatus() erroneously failing on Windows
  • Fixed an issue where a CANivore SignalLogger sometimes would not start or create empty logs if called before refreshing/applying any configs or waiting for any StatusSignals
  • Fixed the SignalLogger free space error when the log must be stopped to report the correct 5 MB limit
  • Swerve: Added support for default configuration objects, allowing users to set up configs that the Swerve API does not touch, such as supply current limits. There are new members in SwerveModuleConstantsFactory and SwerveDrivetrainConstants to specify the default configs for the respective devices.
  • Swerve: Fixed an issue where on program startup, the odometry thread could erroneously think a CANivore bus was not CAN FD if constructed before refreshing/applying any configs or waiting for any StatusSignals
  • Improved the API documentation for control and config object parameters
  • Fixed FeedbackConfigs CANcoder helper functions not being public in Java
  • Added withSyncCANcoder() to FeedbackConfigs
  • Added withForwardRemoteTalonFX(), withReverseRemoteTalonFX(), withForwardRemoteCANcoder(), and withReverseRemoteCANcoder(), to HardwareLimitSwitchConfigs

RobotPy Support

This beta includes the first release of Phoenix v6's FRC Python support!
Phoenix 6 can be utilized with RobotPy by using the phoenix6 pip package.
API documentation can be found here and is also linked from our main documentation.

py -3 -m robotpy_installer download phoenix6
py -3 -m robotpy_installer install phoenix6
A RobotPy meta package will be coming later during the beta.

There is also a phoenix6 python package of the same name for Windows, Linux (Debian x64 and arm64), and macOS that can be used with standard desktop pip installation.

Python Known Issue:

This release contains a dependency requirement bug - to work around it, install the python package setuptools. This will be fixed in the next release.

py -3 -m robotpy_installer download setuptools
py -3 -m robotpy_installer install setuptools

RobotPy Phoenix v5

The RobotPy folks have graciously agreed to continue publishing the Phoenix v5 python package. For 2024 it will be named phoenix5 instead of ctre, and should be coming soon - for binary packaging reasons the new phoenix6 python library was a pre-req for getting phoenix5 published.

Initial Release of Phoenix for the 2024 FRC Beta

This is a BETA release of Phoenix software compatible with the 2024 FRC Beta Software.

For a list of changes since the 2023 season see our "New for 2024" documentation:
https://pro.docs.ctr-electronics.com/en/latest/docs/yearly-changes/yearly-changelog.html

2023's Phoenix Pro API is now the free-to-use Phoenix 6 API, and a Phoenix Pro license is only required for some Pro-only firmware features. A new more cost-effective type of Pro licensing is also available in the form of the Phoenix Pro Season Pass.

Phoenix Tuner X

Phoenix Tuner X is available through the Windows and Android App stores - see here for installation instructions.

NOTE: Temporary Diagnostics Server is not yet updated for Beta. To get the 2024 beta version of diagnostics, deploy a robot application using the beta vendordeps.

Online Vendordep URLs

The vendordep files for 2024 have been streamlined - instead of choosing v5 only, v6 only, or v5 + v6, you now add the Phoenix 6 vendordep and optionally the Phoenix 5 vendordep.

Note that Phoenix 5 does depend on some low-level libraries in Phoenix 6, so projects that only utilize the v5 API will still require both v5 and v6 vendordeps to be added. An appropriate error message will display on build if a project only has the Phoenix 5 vendordep without Phoenix 6.

See instructions here for adding online vendordeps to your robot project.

Phoenix 6 Vendordep URL:

Phoenix 5 Vendordep URL:

https://maven.ctr-electronics.com/release/com/ctre/phoenix/Phoenix5-frc2024-beta-latest.json

Offline Installers

Offline install files (including the LabVIEW version of Phoenix and the legacy Tuner v1 application) will be available in a later Beta release.
