Bug fixes

  • Data was erroneously discarded when an HTTP protocol error occurred

    When an unexpected HTTP error occurred (such as a timeout), data was erroneously discarded. Data is now downsampled and retransmitted when an HTTP protocol error occurs.

  • Error when installing with an incompatible setuptools_scm version

    The version requirements were not correctly set for the setuptools_scm build time requirement, which may have resulted in an error at installation. The version requirements for setuptools_scm are now set appropriately.
