The new Workbench 3.0.0 is finally live! You can go ahead and download it in our download section. If you are a mac user please download and reinstall the software manually.
XDK-Workbench version 3.0.0
Is there any migration guide for this? The folder structure has changed dramatically and some old header files (i.e. BCDS_PowerMgt.h among others) are no longer in the SDK, while others have new names. This keeps the compiler from running without error on a lot of old projects. A migration guide would be very helpful and prevent a lot of painful searching.
there is indeed a migration guide available for the XDK-Workbench 3.0.0. You can find it in the related pages here.
Please let me know if that was helpful and do not hesitate to ask if you have further questions.
Kind regards, Franjo
You can find a small section about the changes to the BLE stack in the linked migration guide. For additional information, you can also take a look at the BLE guide. It is updated to work with the Workbench 3.0.0 BLE stack.

I am having a lot of trouble donwloading this new version. I tried with diferent networks, and it will always be very slow, and fail at some point.
I am from Brazil.
We are aware of this issue and another user already suffered from it. As such, we provided split versions of the Windows 32- and 64-bit XDK-Workbench installations in this thread here. I recommend downloading them instead of the complete installation. How to extract them to receive the complete installation file is also explained in the linked thread.
I am glad that the information was useful. There will also be an updated guide for MQTT coming soon. The new API is event-driven, similar to BLE.
I found the SendAccelerometerDataOverBle dosen't work with Alpwise App under XDK Workbench 3.0.0 demo. Would you please help to check it? Thanks.
It is correct that the Alpwise App does not work with the SendAccelerometerDataOverBle example anymore. This is because the new example doesn't use Alpwise Services anymore.
You can use another Android or iOS app that supports custom services. One of the apps that can be used is BLE Scanner. The app is quite straight-forward.
Once you connect your app with the XDK, expand the CUSTOM SERVICE, press the W button on the first characteristic, and send the message start.
Then, press the N button on the second characteristic once. It should display the accelerometer values then.
