The primary role of impOS 44 is to add further functionality to the imp006 module:
Electric Imp versions impOS™ releases as follows: odd-numbered major versions are pre-releases and even-numbered major versions are production-quality releases. As such, impOS 44 builds on impOS 43, which was not made available on general release. For information on changes and bug-fixes implemented in the various minor releases of impOS 43, please see the relevant release notes. This document will focus on changes made following the release of impOS 44.
impOS 44 targets the imp006 module only — it supports hardware not available on earlier imps, which will not receive impOS 44 for this reason.
Note This release branches from impOS 43.1, so please see the 43 release notes for earlier changes.
