The main changes for this release is the long awaited Apple Silicon / M1 support for macOS.

Please note that this release fully supports Apple Silicon (ARM64) and Apple Intel (x86_64) platforms  for our PC/SC IFD Handler and Driver. 

The included AirID Central app is still compiled as an Intel App but should work out of the box with Apple Silicon based systems thanks to Apple Rosetta2 Translation Services 

Fixes & Additions in this release 

  • IFD: Finally our IFD Handler for the macOS internal PC/SC Daemon is now provided as an Universal App plugin for x86_64 and arm64 platforms.
  • IFD: reworked the way code signing and notarization was done. This was required for successfully working on macOS Big Sur.
  • IFD:Still working on updating the package build process to provide Apple Silicon binaries 
  • IFD: The command line program “/usr/local/bin/set-airid-addr” is now a Universal App and correctly code signed and notarized by DeveloperID.


Known Issues

  • The AirIDCentral application for macOS is still intel only but works with Rosetta2 on Apple Silicon based systems
  • AirID 2.0.0 Beta firmware can only be updated manually for now
  • macOS Big Sur starting from 11.2

    (UI program for selecting/changing AirID)

The main changes for this release is the long awaited macOS Big Sur support starting from macOS Big Sur 11.2 Beta2. Apple did its job and fixed all outstanding issues which prevented the usage of our AirID Software for macOS with macOS Big Sur.

Please note that this release currently only support Apple Intel platforms for our PC/SC IFD Handler (Driver). The AirID Central should work out of the box with Apple Silicon based systems thanks to Apple Rosetta2 Translation Services but we did not test it yet. 

The AirID BLE Software for macOS 1.2.0.32 / 1.2.0-GA is considered as the final 1.2.0-GA Release.

We are working in parallel and hard to bring Apple Silicon support / Universal App support to our macOS software in the next weeks.

We will do that in a new separate Release targeted at 1.2.1-GA

Stay tuned to that.

1.0.4-GA

New or changed:

  • Analyzed and refactored code with regards to initial pairing and LTK / SK creation to make initial LTK key agreement more robust against LTK and SK negotiation failures with AirID1 devices.
  • Moved exchangeKey to AIDDeviceStateConnected
  • Added state counter to better track state changes and having better control for state transits
  • replaced calls to exchangeKey by state reenter 
  • Use state counter for detecting init abort on problems or connectivity issues when Key agreement is in progress.
  • changed Timer Timeout for pairing (from selection to successful final initialization)  from 30.0 seconds to 50.0 seconds 
  • Changed encryption TAG length from 8 to 4 to comply with other platform drivers and make packet transmit more robust
  • Updated logging to use device name where appropriate

Fixed:

  • AirID reader becomes disconnected during initial connection with pairing (regression)
  • Fixed mis guided Timer Timeout which sometimes fires even when Timer was invalidated.  This issue was partly responsible for firing  "Initialization Timeout" Errors even when LTK and SK where successfully negotiated.
  • Use encrypted data length for packet calculation not the "unencrypted" data length.

  • Added watchdog to switch off Bluetooth when Battery gets below 3,4V (-0%) to avoid SC failures for power consuming tasks, RSA Keypair generation or other heavy duty operations 
  • Added event logging capability for the last ~100 events to AirID2 firmware 
    • To get an insight view what happens in the BLE stack @ a disconnect, we gather some debug infos:
      • Read last ble disconnect reason in debug menu
      • Information about connection parameters
      • New logging data struct for BLE stack events:
        • size ~100 last events
        • stop logging @ disconnect
        • read data from new RPC command
        • restart logging after read
    • This feature is currently only available from the DEBUG menu of the AirID2 device and not exposed to any SDK / Driver
