I’m happy to announce the release of COSMOS 5.0.3! This release updates dependencies, has a few bug fixes, and improves UI performance. Most importantly, the user interface better handles having many thousands of telemetry points. Everyone is encouraged to upgrade and start running off of the prebuilt containers on Docker Hub.

What’s Changed

  • Script file chooser dialogs added
  • Cypress Integration Tests Fully Removed (Replaced with Playwright)
  • Redis Aof persistence removed (Helps Raspberry Pi a lot)
  • TlmGrapher right click Improvements
  • Fix get_packet API
  • Disallow bracket in target, packet, packet item names
  • Fix Redis command tab
  • Fix Environment Variables in Test Runner
  • Allow util save and load script to take version
  • TargetPacketItemChooser performance improvements
  • Fix Test Suite results parsing
  • Paginate CmdTlmServer and PacketViewer
  • inject_tlm enhancements
  • Rework cleanup to be configurable and default to off
  • Added Ruby block support to wait_check by @andyp13
  • Lots of dependency versions updated to latest

Migration Notes:

If upgrading from an earlier version, you will need to go the Admin -> Microservices tab and manually delete the DEFAULT__CLEANUP__S3 microservice.
