Platform Update v1.3.8

The 1.3.8 release introduces support for our third embedded Linux platform with the addition of the BeagleBone Green development board. This is a great board to start a new IoT project with, and to enhance the experience we’ve also added support for all Seeed Studio Grove sensors packaged in the BeagleBone Green IOT Developer Prototyping Kit to get the most out of the board. We’ve built demo projects using each of these sensors, as well as a BeagleBone Green getting started guide to learn how to get started with the board, so be sure to check them out.

Also in the 1.3.8 release is the addition of configurable notification preferences, which you can now set from your account area. With these settings, you can now specify if you’d like notifications sent from your devices to go to your email, or otherwise have the ability to stop receiving a notification from a device if it’s continuously alarming.
