TECHNICAL NOTE 20220922
This tech note addresses critical changes to Microsoft's security protocols for authentication in Microsoft Exchange Online, a workaround offered by Microsoft, CygNet's response to this change in authentication for the General Notification Service (GNS) and Flow Measurement Service (FMS), and CygNet's release and patch plan for v9.7, v9.6, v9.5, and v9.4 for this issue.
We are pleased to announce the release of CygNet’s OPC UA Server 1.0, now offering another way to access CygNet data over the web. The OPC UA server communicates with a CygNet system to request and receive data via encrypted communication channels using our intermediary REST API application, CygNet Bridge API. The CygNet OPC UA Server 1.0 operates with CygNet v9.5 and CygNet Bridge v4.4.121.
We are pleased to announce the latest release of CygNet, version 9.5!
At a high level, the 9.5 release has a lot of added features. To help you get acquainted with this new release, we've cataloged our most significant enhancements below for your review:

Okay, maybe that only works for Jack Bauer. But, just like Jack, the new Enhanced Alarm Configuration (EAC) feature can help you avert catastrophe.
I was recently asked to give a presentation on Canvas to showcase its power as an HMI authoring platform to potential customers. I’ve given lots of presentations on Canvas over the years, usually highlighting new and exciting features with each release. Just talking about new 9.4 features took me over an hour at WESC, and three separate blog posts here; for this presentation, I had about 15 minutes. So instead of trying to talk too fast or cram too much in, I decided to take my audience on a journey.
It starts with a single point value, and a text tool.
We’ve been reviewing some of the new Canvas features in the 9.4 release. We’ve covered navigation and high performance HMI. Today I want to talk about alarms, how to know when they’ve happened, and how to take action.
As I mentioned in my previous article, there are just so many new features in Canvas for 9.4 that we couldn’t fit it all in one post. Last time we talked about some of the new navigation features; today I want to talk about high performance HMI.
“High Performance” has been a bit of a buzzword for HMI design for a while now, and can mean different things to different people. In general, the goal of a high performance HMI is to prioritize actionable information over raw data. We want to remove visual distractions, limit points of confusion, and empower end users to take informed action. These principles have been part of Canvas’ design from the beginning, and we’ve added even more features in 9.4.
We’re all very happy to have CygNet 9.4 out in the world. The CygNet development and product management team worked hard to ensure this release would provide significant value for our customers. Hopefully you can see the results of that work in the massive 9.4 release notes.
As the lead developer for Canvas, I want to spend some time highlighting some of the many new HMI features in 9.4. This release represents the biggest investment we’ve done in our new HMI since it came out a few years ago. Frankly there are just too many new features to meaningfully cover in a single post, so I am going to break it up and do a series on some of the awesome new things in Canvas.
Today I want to talk about navigation. Navigation is a big theme for Canvas 9.4. As people start building out new systems in Canvas, we wanted to expand options for end users to move around quickly and efficiently.
