Company Profile

The EdgeX Foundry, which operates under the Linux Foundation’s Edge organization, announced the release of EdgeX 3.1, called “Napa.” This latest release marks the community’s new Long-Term Support (LTS) version of EdgeX and the first LTS version of the EdgeX FoundryEdgeX 3 series, emphasizing enhanced usability and platform configuration.

EdgeX Foundry is an open and flexible edge data platform that can simplify the integration of devices, sensors, and applications at the edge. It is managed by the Linux Foundation and operates as an open-source framework with Apache 2.0 licensing. The EdgeX Technical Steering Committee features software leaders from companies including Intel, IOTech, Canonical, Eaton and Oracle.

New Features:

  • Added support for users to load the various EdgeX configuration files from a specified remote location via URI, rather requiring users to duplicate and have multiple sources of the same configuration

  • Common Configuration for all EdgeX services

  • Overhauled the product documentation to be easier for new users

  • Retention capability for Core Data service, making data access and storage more predictable

  • “Record and replay” service for internal message bus events

As the previous EdgeX LTS version 2.1 is no longer supported, LF Edge recommends that users should switch to the newer version when possible.
