New 1.5 Release, MQTT 5.0 Roadmap and Commercial Sponsor for Eclipse Mosquitto MQTT Broker(May 10, 2018)
FREIBURG, Germany (PRWEB) May 10, 2018
A new version of the open source Eclipse Mosquitto MQTT broker is available on the Mosquitto website at https://mosquitto.org. Mosquitto version 1.5 brings a host of changes to the broker, including performance improvements and more flexible authentication and access control, as well as numerous bug fixes. The client library has added some helper functions to allow the creation of extremely simple MQTT clients.
The initiator and core developer of the Mosquitto project is now employed by the German based company Cedalo AG (http://www.cedalo.com). Cedalo has hired Roger Light to sponsor the further development of Mosquitto and to accelerate the public availability of a powerful MQTT broker. Cedalo is the creator of the end-user oriented IoT modelling tool “Streamsheets".
With the new sponsorship the project is now able to accelerate the path towards new releases. The next version of Mosquitto will add support for MQTT version 5, which is the most substantial revision of the protocol since the first public specification was released. MQTT v5 adds error reporting, enhancements for scalability at the server side, features to help resource constrained clients, and extensible metadata - which is used amongst other things to introduce support for a request/response capability.
The MQTT v5 compliant release is planned for the end of August 2018.
