Topic-Alias Issue Fix (Web, CLI):

The topic-alias maximum error in web and CLI connections has been resolved. This fixes the issue of MQTTX CLI not receiving messages with topic aliases properly, and also addresses the problem of not being able to set a maximum topic alias.

Others

  • Reconnection Issue Fixed (Desktop): Addressed issues with reconnection after disconnection.
  • Unused Placeholders Removed (Desktop): Cleaned up unused placeholders in code.
  • Translation Updates (Desktop, Web): Improved translations for specific languages.
  • Typo Corrections (Desktop): Corrected typographical errors in documentation or code.
  • Web README Update: Improved the README documentation for MQTTX Web.

Special Thanks

Huge thanks to @ni00 for resolving critical issues like JSON precision and topic alias, and to @Rotzbua for documentation and engineering fixes in MQTTX.

Roadmap

  • MQTTX Copilot Enhancements: Upgrades to include stream output, payload autofill, payload analysis, and automatic creation of connections and subscriptions to topics.
