The old Blynk legacy app has been removed and support for the new Blynk IOT app has been added.
iRelay changes are related to improved usage on iOS devices. The option to change the SSID and password has been added on all versions of the thermometer. High and low temperature alarm for SHT version, interval to send every 60 minutes & support for SENSOR SPY application is novelty.
Only system changes have been made to the iRelay classic firmware. iRelay Light now has the ability to DIY & make and convert to a temperature controller. In the management menu it is possible to switch on / off a special relay switch for heating and a special relay switch for cooling. To upgrade to a controller you need a relay module like this one. The default state is off. Only system changes were made on the thermometer. Firmware site
The new firmware version allows iRelay thermometer data to be sent to the UbiDots application independent of iSpindel data. Firmware site
Several improvements to iRelay have been underway over the past month. The latest is the ability to receive 2 Spindles on the BrewSpy app. Also, in cooperation with the team from BrewSpy, it is possible to send temperature data from iRelay to their mobile application as well as the web app.
02/28/2022 Firmware 6.5.4 -Added BrewSpy custom user and the ability to change the temperature sending interval.
02/10/2022 Firmware 6.5.3 -Work on code optimization.

11/05/2021 Firmware 6.4.9 -The NTC clock was discontinued because in some countries of the world the server was not supported during or the connection took too long, and this affected the Relay processor itself. New features have been added to the previous options (Displayless operation with LED lights only, different display type). Corrected ABV and ATT conversion when using the conversion option from P to SG.

07/01/2021 Firmware 6.4.2 -In the relay management settings you can make a conversion from P to SG. This refers to relay, while the application receives the values sent by iSpindel and for conversion it is necessary to do the same on the application you are using.
06/26/2021 Firmware 6.4.1 -In the thermometer settings, you can select the unit in degrees C or degrees F.
06/24/2021 Firmware 6.4.0 Download -In the settings you can select the unit in Plato or SG degrees. The default unit is SG. You can select a different unit for each hydrometer. This option does not affect the calibration formula and what the hydrometer sends to applications, but only for display on the screen and local page

01/30/2021 Firmware 6.3.2 Download Added a new menu and the ability to turn audio alarms on and off
01/18/2021 Firmware 6.3.1 Download Added the ability to change AP SSID name and AP Password
01/11/2021 Firmware 6.3.0 Download Added the ability to connect to the Grainfather app.
12/28/2020 Firmware 6.2.9 Download Displays the percentage of battery next to the remaining voltage. The values in the percentage formula are: 4.2V for Voltage.max and 3.3V for Voltage.min. The percentage is also visible on the local website and can be sent to the Blynk app via a virtual pin.It is recommended to calibrate the battery and change the correction factor before using the iSpindle. By default, ispindel batt factor is 191.8. You can adjust it by this formula: (displayed voltage / measured voltage) * current factor (191.8) = new factor
The new factor should be between current factor more or less 20%.
12/26/2020 Firmware 6.2.8 Download It is possible to switch the thermometer on and off if it is installed on a relay. It is possible to install a thermometer in the relay as a DIY project.
