The Things Stack version 3.13 is released offering new features, UI improvements and performance updates.
Packet Broker updates
Since version 3.13, The Things Network V2 routes traffic back and forth to The Things Stack Community Edition. In earlier versions, Packet Broker would only route data from The Things Network V2 to The Things Stack Community Edition, but since the 3.13 release, the data exchange goes both ways.
Why this is important, when migrating your gateways to The Things Stack Community Edition, the coverage of the public community network won’t be impacted as the legacy V2 network is fully interconnected with The Things Stack Community Edition.
Reminder: v2 clusters will be shut down at the end of the year, so take advantage of this new feature and migrate your devices and gateways to The Things Stack.
