Fix for a bug that could cause write delays on serial connections.

3.02 - 3 Nov 2014

Added option to read identification information from Modbus devices.

Support idle timeout for all Modbus connection types, not just TCP socket.

Minor changes to error reporting.

Upgraded to version 2.3.1 of the SNMP4J library.

3.01 - 18 Sep 2014

Added caching of Modbus values. The expiry period for a value (i.e. its cache lifetime) is configurable. Storing values in the cache means that, within their lifetimes, they are available immediately when requested by an SNMP manager.

Added the option to poll. ModSnmp can automatically update Modbus values when their lifetimes expire. This enables ModSnmp to have the new values ready for the SNMP manager when it requests them.

Added ability to function as a Modbus bridge. Modbus masters (as well as SNMP managers) can now communicate with the Modbus slaves via ModSnmp.

Implemented various measures to promote the smooth running of the system under adverse load conditions. The adverse load might be due, for example, to one or more slaves responding very slowly, or an SNMP manager sending requests (possibly with retries) at too high a rate.

Upgraded to version 2.3.0 of the SNMP4J library.

2.04 - 4 Aug 2013

Under Windows, scan for serial ports up to COM99 instead of COM20.

Minor GUI changes.

2.01 - 15 May 2013

Use device definitions to organize the SNMP-Modbus mapping. This facility enables easier entry of multiple devices that have the same Modbus registers. It also allows more meaningful names to be associated with OIDs.

Automatically generate the MIB file.
