Version 5.1.4

Build: 5.1.4-361

Release date: 16.12.21

This is a security release of Prosys OPC UA Simulation Server. Everyone is recommended to update to this version.

Apache Foundation has released another version of log4j2 in order to fix a new CVE-2021-45046: https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2021-45046. Per our understanding we would not be vulnerable to CVE-2021-45046, but just to be safe this release updates to log4j2 2.16.0.

Changes

  • Updated log4j2 to version 2.16.0

Version 5.1.2

Build: 5.1.2-358

Release date: 13.12.21

This is an emergency security release to fix the https://nvd.nist.gov/vuln/detail/CVE-2021-44228 "Log4Shell" attack.

Everyone is recommended to update to this version.

Mitigation strategies for older releases can be found in https://logging.apache.org/log4j/2.x/security.html, though it should be noted that due to the log4j2 version (2.8.2 or older) of previous releases the system property mitigation strategy cannot be used (the other 2 can be used).

Changes

  • Updated log4j2 to version 2.15.0

  • Changed: Minimum simulation interval limit lowered to 100 ms.

Version 5.0.0

Build: 5.0.0-214

Release date: 06.07.20

This is a major release of Prosys OPC UA Simulation Server. Starting from this version the Simulation Server features a new commercial Professional Edition unlocking the option to import custom information models.

This release brings major improvements to the customisation of the server address space and the configuration of simulation signals.

Changes

  • Uses Prosys OPC UA SDK for Java version 4.3.0.

  • New: Can now create Variables and Objects of any type present on the server.

  • New: Added new Types View for setting signals to types present on the server. All instances of a type can inherit the signal defined for the type.

  • New: Added new Namespaces View for managing the namespaces/information models present on the server.

  • Changed: Simulation View renamed to Objects View and revamped the user interface.
