Pebble has released a firmware update that’s going out to users’ devices, bringing the watch to version 2.4. The update seems to be a maintenance release and is said to fix a number of bugs and annoyances reported by users. If you’re building apps for Pebble, there are a few new features in the SDK.
You should get a notification from the Pebble companion app on your phone when the update’s available, but if not you can search for it manually through the app under Support > Check for updates.
the full list of changes and fixes include:
- Fix a potential crash when using scroll layers or animations
- Added support for realloc
- Added a gbitmap_create_blank function to create empty bitmaps of a fixed size
- Added number_window_get_window()
- Fixed a crash with atan2_lookup when high input values were used
- Fixed a bug where TupletInteger could not be used with unsigned integers
- Fixed several bluetooth reliability issues
- Fixed a case where the “Setup notifications” banner would erroneously show in the iOS Pebble app
- Fixed a bug with the music app where media playing faster than real time could not be paused
- Fixed a bug where the notifications view could show a rapidly increasing counter for number of notifications when first displayed
- Fixed a bug where switching watchfaces could cause the same watchface to be relaunched
