Howdy, developers and engineers! Last year, the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) released two developer study guides, Deploying BlueZ v5.50 on Raspberry Pi, Part 1 – Deploying and Deploying BlueZ v5.50 on Raspberry Pi 3, Part 2 — Provisioning, that explained how to deploy BlueZ on Raspberry Pi boards and make them work as a Bluetooth® Mesh provisioner.

Recently, we released a new version, v1.4, that includes the following features:

  • We combined the two developer study guides mentioned above, deploying and provisioning, into one developer study guide. All the updates we added can now be found in this single guide
  • Besides meshctl, a newly added tool, mesh-cfglicnet, allows you to create mesh networks operating over the advertising provisioning bearer and PB-ADV. This is a big step forward for Linux platforms running Bluetooth® technology
  • To support the advertising bearer, we updated the section of Rebuilding the Kernel for BlueZ
  • We also recorded a step-by-step video to guide you through using the updated developer study guide

Download the new version 1.4 of the developer study guide, and watch the step-by-step video on using the developer study guide.
