Communication Protocols

  • Ethernet monitor: Headerless PDUs are correctly mapped to the corresponding multicast addresses and correctly interpreted.
  • XCP on FlexRay: Transport layer settings are read correctly from the project file (canape.ini).
  • DLT (verbose): Custom datatypes that do not meet the specification are ignored with a warning message.
  • DLT messages are interpreted in the CANape Trace window.
  • XCP: A new expert setting, which allows to avoid executing PROGRAM_RESET after flashing, was introduced.
  • Active SOME/IP: Bugfix for calibrating arrays using a PAR file
  • Ethernet monitor: Support measuring AUTOSAR I-PDUs without header
  • DLT: Fixed measurement of DLT signals from multiple publishers sending on the same multicast address.
  • Ethernet network: It is now possible to configure custom MAC addresses for TCP/IP connections when using Vector interfaces.
  • XCP: Fixed an issue where the ECU responded with an empty DB string on GET_ID request.
  • Fixed processing XCP events transmitted over FlexRay
  • DLT messages can be displayed time-synchronously with other message types like CAN or Ethernet PDUs by using PTP.

Measurement Data Acquisition

  • VectorIO: Fixed timestamp issue

  • XCP: When switching to another time-sync master clock (e. g. after losing the GPS connection), signals are displayed correctly in the Graphic window.
  • In case of triggered recording of bus messages in BLF or PCAP files, all messages are recorded even in the case of directly successive trigger events.
  • XCP on Ethernet: Introduced new expert setting to configure the size of the CANape receive buffer (needed in case of performance issues).
  • Time synchronization: Fixed issue supporting Vector interfaces and XTSS
  • Signals measured via CANopen receive a correct timestamp.
  • CAN monitor: Reduced the amount of data written to MDF in case of CAN FD
  • CANape supports additional analog/digital transceivers for Vector interfaces.

Extended MATLAB/Simulink Support

  • Support of structures and arrays of structures for binary ports
  • Support of constants for binary ports


  • The feature ACC for XCP devices will only be executed if a suitable network communication is configured.
  • When a device is created with a database that describes the ACC feature, this will be executed correctly upon initialization.
  • The display of parameter values is updated correctly when switching between variants.
  • A crash that occurred when handling limit violations has been fixed.
  • Added key combinations for the context menu entries of the value history in the General Calibration window.
  • Calibrating values in the General Calibration window now works as expected when expanding/collapsing maps or curves.
  • A new device-specific command was added to CASL which allows starting the action "Init CALRAM" from a script.
  • Improved treatment when importing maps and curves and saving them into a parameter file via CASL script: All values will be read, even if only one value is referenced by the script.


  • When the connection to the ECU is interrupted unexpectedly (e.g., in case of a ECU reset), the authentication is renewed afterwards.


  • Entering a time offset in the Multimedia window when using image folders as a source is possible.

Functions and Scripts

  • The CASL function "WaitForAllSignalsReady" no longer blocks a script if a measurement file is faulty or does not exist.
  • For signals calculated with CASL functions, the texts of string array parameters can also be configured.
  • In the variable display of the Function Editor, values of 1-byte variables are also displayed correctly during debugging.
  • An error ("Error reading concatenated DL block list") that occurred upon triggered writing of signals with very low data rate to MDF4 files has been fixed.
  • The new CASL function "ByteArrayToString" can be used to convert data from byte arrays into a representable string.

Data Mining

  • Storing string array variables in a Data Mining analysis profile is supported now.

Driver Assistance

  • The selection of GFX objects in the Scene window has been improved.
  • The Map window displays any number of GPS position objects even without option Driver Assistance.
  • The Scene window offers more options to configure the grid and to adapt its size to the size of the window.
  • Custom data types in the Signal-Object-Adapter are available project-wide.

Measurement Data Visualization and Manual Analysis

  • A problem with zooming in the Graphic window has been fixed, which could have the effect that in certain zoom resolutions no signals were displayed.
  • Measurement functions can be used as input of virtual measurement file channels.
  • The visibility of the measurement cursors in Graphic windows with X/Y display mode has been improved.
  • When displaying measurement data from several MDF4 files with UTC synchronized timestamps, the absolute times are displayed correctly even in windows with signals from only one file.
  • When fitting signal values in the Graphic window with an active signal value filter, only filtered values are considered.
  • When exporting to PDF format, a scaling error of the signal curves in Graphic windows that occurs on some devices has been corrected.

Working with Measurement Files

  • When reading compressed signal values from an MF4 file, caching in a temporary file has been activated by default in order to speed up evaluation of several signals from the same group.
  • When importing bus logging files, the CAN identifiers of messages with extended IDs are displayed in hexadecimal notation with an "x" as identifier in the channel group properties.
  • Signals of type INT in arrays are interpreted correctly.
  • When importing GPS measurement data in NMEA format, non-standard data lines in the files can be ignored.
  • When exporting measurement files to Excel format, negative timestamps are also accepted.
  • The measurement data export converters to ASCII and Excel allow larger data volumes due to 64-bit technology
  • When importing bus messages from ASC format, the message identifiers are displayed correctly.
  • Support for multiple proto files per measurement file channel
  • Multimedia signals from BLF files of CANoe are supported.
  • The measurement file comment in BLF files, which is available starting with CANoe 14, is taken into account during import.
  • When importing measurement data from ASCII files, two-digit values for the year are supported.
  • Support of the DAQ overload indication when converting XCP logs to MDF
  • Fixed loading of MDF 4.1 files containing CAN FD messages if created by CANape using the new MF4 ring-buffer technology for triggering (starting with CANape 19.0, only for uncompressed files).

Measurement Data Management

  • Columns in the result view of a vMDM search can be removed easily by drag and drop.
  • Display of columns representing a time span (i.e., duration) has been improved for the vMDM result view.
  • The Home view of the vMDM Explorer now offers an optional update of the add-in in case a newer but compatible vMDM client (vMDM App) has been installed. If the client is not compatible, the update is mandatory.
  • Creation of temporary library files has been changed to avoid wrong malware warnings (false positives) from antivirus programs.
  • The service for local vMDM search now will only be started when at least one folder to watch has been configured.
  • Custom Properties with empty string now are represented in the vMDM search filter tree by special filter label "(Empty)".
  • The new filter types "No value" and "Any value" in the vMDM search filter tree now allow to filter for properties without a value or to exclude those. Note: The new filter types must be created manually via context menu first.
  • If the vMDM App detects an "Option vMDM" or a supported Vector tool license (CANape, vSignalyzer, vMeasure exp, DYNA4 Studio), it now also offers vMDM Explorer functionality. Thus, the vMDM App can now optionally be used as standalone tool.
