Opening this thread for any short updates to Microsoft Azure IoT and its related sub-products (iot edge, event grid, IoT central, IoT hub, etc.).

IoT Central has two new pricing plans designed to provide greater management, flexibility, and simplicity for building IoT applications. This change allows you to:
  • Select a pricing plan based on application and message volume needs.
  • Change pricing tiers as needed.
  • Include two free devices per application.

Azure Event Grid on Azure IoT Edge preview 2 is now available. Updates include additional destination types, monitoring capabilities, and data plane persistence to disk.

Azure IoT C# and Java SDKs release new long-term support (LTS) branches


The Azure IoT Java and C# SDKs have each now released new long-term support (LTS) branches.

See the new C# SDK LTS branch.
See the new Java SDK LTS branch.
In both cases, previous LTS branches are no longer supported.

Important notes

If you're using the C# SDK, there are a couple scenarios where you should grab the latest master branch as opposed to the LTS branch:

--If you're using HTTP proxies, use the latest Microsoft.Azure.Devices v1.19.0 release. This contains a fix for a regression that broke HTTP proxy functionality in the previous LTS release.
--If you would like to specify the default certificate revocation policy, use the latest Microsoft.Azure.Devices.Client v.1.23.0 release. This has the remote SSL certification revocation check disabled by default for both AMQP and MQTT, and it also contains a new API for you to enable/disable this check.

A secure foundation for IoT, Azure Sphere now generally available

Azure Sphere, the end-to-end solution for securing IoT devices, is now generally available. Azure Sphere’s integrated hardware, software, and cloud services work seamlessly together and deliver active security by default. Every Azure Sphere device comes with over 10 years of security and OS updates. Microsoft builds, manages and deploys these updates directly to the devices so that manufacturers can focus on customer applications and features and not managing a secured operating system. For innovation to deliver durable value, it must be built on a foundation of security. Azure Sphere’s mission is to empower every device manufacturer on the planet to create secure and trustworthy IoT devices.

Azure Security Center for IoT real-time operating system support

Azure RTOS is a comprehensive suite of a real-time operating system (RTOS) and libraries for developing embedded real-time IoT applications on MCU devices. It includes Azure RTOS ThreadX, a leading RTOS with off-the-shelf support for most leading chip architectures and embedded development tools. Azure Security Center for IoT extends support for Azure RTOS in addition to Linux (Ubuntu, Debian) and Windows 10 IoT core operating systems. Azure RTOS will be shipped with a built-in security module that will cover common threats on real-time operating system devices. The offering includes detection of malicious network activities, device behavior baselining based on custom alerts, and recommendations that will help to improve the security hygiene of the device.

Azure IoT Python SDK v2 has just been released with major new improvements. Version 2.1.0 includes two notable changes:
  • On the device side, we added several changes aimed at improving MQTT connection resiliency. These include adjustments to the reconnect and retry stages for improved handling of reconnection errors and simplifying error messages received from the underlying MQTT library.
  • On the service side, we added support for cloud-to-device messaging. View a sample of this feature.

IoT Plug and Play new features now in public preview

IoT Plug and Play is an open approach based on open language to simplify IoT solution development. It enables seamless device to cloud solution integration experience, without writing embedded device code. IoT Plug and Play allows IoT devices to describe their capabilities in a ‘device capability model’ and present it when connecting to cloud solutions like Azure IoT Central and 3rd party solutions from partners, which can automatically understand the device and start interacting with it.

New IoT Plug and Play features will:
Simplify: process to make IoT device, IoT Plug and Play enable by allowing existing devices to author the model and do targeted code changes and making existing Azure IoT SDKs fully compatible with IoT Plug and Play.

Better integration with Azure IoT offerings (e.g.: Azure IoT Central, Azure IoT Hub, Azure Digital Twins, Azure Time Series Insight) and 3rd part cloud offerings by moving towards convention approach, aligning IoT Plug and Play with Digital Twins Definition Language.

Azure IoT Device Provisioning Service VNET ingress support is now available

The Azure IoT Device Provisioning Service VNET ingress support feature enables users to lock down DPS ingress access to devices connecting through a specific VNET.
DPS egress to IoT Hub uses an internal service-to-service mechanism and does not currently operate over a dedicated VNET.
This core new capability improves the connectivity security and is of special significance to those in the industrial and enterprise sectors with stringent network and compliance requirements.

Windows 10 IoT Core Services are generally available
Published date: August 11, 2020
At Build 2019, we announced support for technology to migrate Windows CE applications to Windows 10. Since then, more than 130 partners have enrolled in the preview program to try this technology. Partners looking for a way to modernize their CE applications and are now able to use Windows CE App Container. With Windows CE App Container, many customers can run their existing CE applications on top of Windows 10 IoT Core with supported x64 or ARM32 processors. This provides customers the ability to move to modern hardware and slowly transition their CE application to run natively on Windows 10 and take advantage of recent OS improvements.
