Koenkk, the great mastermind behind Zigbee2MQTT and the Z-Stack firmware that runs on the various Zigbee Coordinators, has released a new updated firmware for the CC2652/CC1352 series chipsets. This firmware is for both Zigbee2MQTT and Home Assistant ZHA users. The changelog is as follows:
- Improve performance/reliability for larger network (100+ devices)
- Increase request retry attempts
- Increase routing table sizes
- SimpleLink SDK 6.10.01.01 changelog
Should I upgrade?
The old saying of if isn't broke then don't fix it definitely applies here for the average Zigbee network sizes. I have a mixture of various Zigbee devices of around 50 devices and I've been running this firmware in beta for a few weeks without any issues. I'm using a CC2652P2 based Sonoff Dongle-P USB coordinator with Zigbee2MQTT. Several Home Assistant ZHA users on the Github testing thread have also reported no issues during the beta period. Give it a whirl if you want to, you can always downgrade if you think it is causing issues.
