Versions and updates
Please always update to the latest version of our software tools. This ensures you benefit from the full feature scope and get the latest bug fixes. We’re committed to backward compatibility, so you can safely use new versions with your existing configurations, keys, and other assets in your project.

You’re experiencing an issue?
efore reporting it, please make sure you have the latest version and check the known issues (see the link next to the Download buttons). There you may find a workaround.


v 3.17.00 | 22 December 2021

Tip: Also install our ToolSuite – it’s great for testing.

Semantic versioning
The SDK uses semantic versioning, i.e. the version number is composed as follows: MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH

  • MAJOR: New features that cause breaking changes
  • MINOR: New features that are fully backwards compatible.
  • PATCH: Bug fixes only

This versioning only refers to the dynamic library BRP Lib. The reason is that most features and bugfixes are added there. The static ibrary BALTECH API is an auto-generated wrapper, where changes are less frequent. However, we don’t fully rule out breaking changes even in a minor version.

To avoid adjustments in productive applications when API breaking changes occur, you can update BRP Lib individually and continue to use your current version of the statically linked API.
