Overview of changes in libqmi 1.30.0

  • Build now requires GLib/GObject/GIO 2.56 and libgudev 232.
  • Building from git no longer requires autoconf-archive, the needed AX_ macros are now shipped inside m4/.
  • In addition to building from a source release tarball, or building from git checkouts using the GNU autotools suite (autoconf/automake/libtool), this release includes the initial support for the meson build system. The meson port is not fully complete yet, as there are some missing things in the doc generation steps, but for system integration or development purposes, the port should be fully operational. This major release, including all its stable updates in the 1.30.x series, will be the last ones providing support for GNU autotools. The next major release will likely be a meson-only one, and will therefore not be based on a source release tarball any more, but on specific git tags instead.
  • Updated the build to allow better control of the built-in RMNET support:
    • A new '--disable-rmnet' configure flag is available to request fully disabling the RMNET support. When RMNET support is disabled, the link management operations are done with the add_mux/del_mux qmi_wwan API exclusively.
    • The library sources now ship the RMNET specific types from the kernel API in a custom internal header, so that we don't require the latest kernel headers during configure time and build time.
    • A new 'QMI_RMNET_SUPPORTED' symbol is given to flag the existence of the RMNET support in the libqmi-glib headers.
  • New services:
    • New 'DPM' (Data Port Mapper) service, which allows setting up the binding between TX/RX endpoint ids in the hardware and the control port interface, required for IPA based Qualcomm SoCs.
  • New request/response/indications:
    • nas: implement "Get Preferred Networks" request/response.
    • nas: implement "Set Preferred Networks" request/response.
    • nas: implement "Network Reject" indications
    • uim: implement "Get Configuration" request/response.
    • uim: implement "Depersonalization" request/response.
    • voice: implement "Manage Calls" request/response.
    • voice: implement "Supplementary Service" indication.
    • voice: implement "Set Supplementary Service" request/response.
    • voice: implement "Get Call Waiting" request/response.
  • New TLVs supported in existing messages:
    • nas: added the "Network Reject Information" TLV in "Register Indications".
    • nas: renamed several TLVs in the "System Info" response and indication messages, in order to provide a QmiNasRejectCause value instead of a plain guint8. The old names were flagged as deprecated and added to the compat layer in order to avoid breaking API.
      • Renamed the "GSM System Info" TLV to "GSM System Info v2".
      • Renamed the "WCDMA System Info" TLV to "WCDMA System Info v2".
      • Renamed the "LTE System Info" TLV to "LTE System Info v2".
      • Renamed the "TD SCMA System Info" TLV to "TD SCMA System Info v2".
    • nas: added the "NR5G ARFCN" and "NR5G Cell Information" TLVs in "Get Cell Location Info".
    • wds: added the "APN Type" TLV in "Get Profile Settings".
    • wds: added the "APN Type" TLV in "Create Profile".
    • wds: added the "APN Type" TLV in "Modify Profile".
    • nas: renamed the "Common Info" TLV in "Swi Get Status" to "Common Info v2" in order to read the temperature field as a signed integer. The old name was flagged as deprecated and added to the compat layer in order to avoid breaking API.
    • nas: renamed the "MNC PDS Digit Include Status" TLV in "Get System Selection Preference" to "MNC PCS Digit Include Status". The old name was flagged as deprecated and added to the compat layer in order to avoid breaking API.
    • wda: added the "Uplink Data Aggregation Max Datagrams", "Uplink Data Aggregation Max Size", "Download Minimum Padding" and "Flow Control" TLVs in "Get Data Format" and "Set Data Format" responses.
    • nas: added the "NR5G Service Status Info", "NR5G System Info", "EUTRA with NR5G availability", DCNR restriction Info" and "NR5G Tracking Area Code" TLVs in "Get System Info".
  • libqmi-glib:
    • Added support for 'hsic', 'bam-dmux' and 'unknown' endpoint types.
    • Added support for QMAPv2, QMAPv3 and QMAPv4 data aggregation types.
    • Added support for 'NGRAN' access technology identifier.
    • New 'qmi_device_add_link_with_flags()' method, in order to give e.g. rmnet specific checksum offload related flags when creating a new link.
  • qmicli:
    • New '--nas-get-preferred-networks' command.
    • New '--nas-set-preferred-networks' command.
    • New '--uim-get-configuration' command.
    • New '--uim-depersonalization' command.
    • New '--wms-get-routes' command.
    • New '--dpm-open-port' command.
    • New '--dpm-close-port' command.
    • Updated '--wds-create-profile' with an additional 'apn-type-mask' setting.
    • Updated '--wds-modify-profile' with an additional 'apn-type-mask' setting.
    • Updated '--link-add' with an additional optional 'flags' setting.
  • qmi-network:
    • New PROFILE configuration setting to allow specifying which WDS profile to use when connecting.
    • New IP-TYPE configuration setting to allow selecting the IP type requested (e.g. IPv4 or IPv6).
  • collections:
    • basic: added voice call management operations.
    • basic: added voice supplementary service related operations.
    • basic: added NAS preferred networks related operations.
    • basic: added NAS network reject indications.
    • basic: added UIM depersonalization related operations.
  • Several other minor improvements and fixes.

The following features which were backported to 1.28.x releases are also present in libqmi 1.30.0:

  • gir: bindings updated to make all output TLV fields optional.
  • gir: bindings fixed with correct string/struct return annotations.
  • build: updated to disable gtkdocize during autoreconf.
  • build: updated to avoid gtkdoc-rebase on local install step.
  • libqmi-glib: added initial "wwan" subsystem support.
  • dms: implement "Foxconn Set FCC Authentication" command.
