Designate Favorite Nodes

One of the standout additions in this release is the ability to designate certain nodes as favorites. This functionality allows users to mark specific nodes, ensuring they remain in the database even after a Node DB reset. This feature enhances the management of nodes within the mesh network, providing users with greater control and flexibility over their interconnected devices.

New Default MQTT Root Topic

In addition to node management enhancements, Meshtastic 2.3 introduces a new default MQTT root topic. This change not only sets the stage for future planned enhancements but also serves to address concerns regarding malicious actors exploiting the previous MQTT root topic.

Visualize Node Hops

Responding to popular demand, the latest firmware update incorporates a highly requested feature – the ability to visualize the number of hops between nodes. Now, users can determine the number of hops between their node and others within the network. However, it’s important to note that for this feature to function seamlessly, all nodes along the route must be running Meshtastic version 2.3 or above. This addition enhances network transparency, empowering users with valuable insights into the topology of their mesh network.
