The 100. Strolch release of the 1.6 branch and a brand new website!
Ok, so Maven doesn’t exactly have 100 releases on it, but even though we have been quiet on public releases, Strolch has seen many refactorings, fixes, new features etc. over the past three years of its last release.
Some notable changes:
Another new addition to the Strolch family is Strolch PLC. The Strolch PLC code allows one to use the same model but on a device acting as a soft PLC, e.g. a Raspberry Pi. This PLC code can then communicate using WebSockets with a Strolch instance, having quite seamless interaction with Activities which really shows the potential of using Strolch’s model in the shop floor.
We’ve been running the Strolch PLC in a mission critical shop floor application to control conveyors which are filled by a dispensing robot.
So, Strolch 1.6.100 is out the door, go ahead and try it out.
