Avoid LLA (169.254.x.x) as NIC's statically assigned IP

This document outlines the Teledyne maintenance policy for Spinnaker Software Development Kit (SDK). Teledyne regularly provides SDK updates that may contain support for new or updated features, enhancements, updated drivers, updated examples, bug fixes or documentation updates. Updates may also address changes with introducing and/or deprecating language runtimes, operating systems and dependencies.

We recommend users to stay up-to-date with SDK releases to keep up with the latest features, bug fixes and performance improvements. Continued use of an unsupported SDK version is not recommended and is done at the user's discretion.

Spinnaker SDK releases are published through our website and can be found here: https://www.flir.ca/products/spinnaker-sdk/
