  • Release notes

    Release notes are available for Pelion Device Management, Device Management Client and Device Management Client Lite.

    Note: If you are using Device Management Client 3.2.0, we recommend that you upgrade to 3.3.0 (or later) as soon as possible. In 3.2.0, if an SSL session is stored when the device rebootstraps, a bootstrap loop may render the device unusable. Client 3.3.0 release fixes this issue by clearing the SSL session.
