NOTE: Database changes are required for this upgrade. During the upgrade process you will be prompted for your root mysql password. The instructions for doing this are the same as the 2.1.7 upgrade, you can review those instructions here.
Once you have the root mysql password, follow the instructions on how to upgrade on our Knowledge Base.
This release focuses on increasing the stability of the server. Several memory / CPU leaks have been fixed. Customers that reported high CPU usage on systems with multiple IP cameras should see a reduction in CPU usage around 10-15%.
Other fixes in this release include a snapshot problem where emails were sent prematurely and the image was from before the motion occurred, not when the motion actually happened. Thanks to the customers who posted about this on the community forums and helped us test out beta releases.
We also now have a option in the web interface to force a camera from TCP to UDP, as some cameras don’t play nice with TCP streaming. If you experience problems with your IP camera (video is smearing, disconnection problems, etc), try changing from TCP to UDP as seen below (Devices -> IP Cameras -> Camera Name -> Properties)
