I do recall that. And I am happy to see the new decode engine is operational in the 6.11.4 Beta.
Until this reaches the stable release branch we will not be looking at implementing a custom decoder,
Excellent information! Thanks very much. So there is no Custom Decoder (yet) to be documented. That makes sense.
however the development team are always willing to look at adding additional protocols if the demand is there.
I think Pico is doing a really excellent job of supporting a wide variety of protocols! I can't speak to their quality (yet), but there's an impressive range of coverage there already.
My own interest is (mostly) in customizing the generic CAN decoder, for several specific variants. J1939 is most important to me, but others such as ISO-15765 and ISO-14229, CanOPEN, etc. are also of interest. It was about a year ago now that Karunen informed me (via a Support exchange) that this would (some day) be possible.
I'm glad that the rewrite has been completed, and looking forward to a stable version status, so that new development can proceed.
