New Pioreactor releases: 23.10.5 & 23.10.10


Bug fixes

  • Fix bug that wasn’t allowing for manual dosing / LED updates.
  • Fix bug that was disconnecting workers with using “stop all activity” in the UI when pumps were running.


  • pios update now has a --source parameter.


Bug fixes

  • Fix an OD calibration bug that would produce an extremely high value when the signal was below the minimum signal (the blank) during OD calibration.
  • IPv4 is really IPv4 now.


  • Adding ability to install plugins by name via the UI.
  • New tools to update Pioreactors on a local access point. More docs coming soon!
  • New turbidostat_targeting_od dosing automation. This is just like the existing turbidostat, but
    targets the raw OD instead of normalized OD. This is most useful post-OD calibration.
  • In the UI, the dosing automation “Turbidostat” has been renamed “Turbidostat Targeting nOD”
