MQTT best practice says: don't use a leading forward slash

Hi,

The MQTT topic starts with /v1.6. But the MQTT Best Practice says: don’t do that. (See http://www.hivemq.com/blog/mqtt-essentials-part-5-mqtt-topics-best-practices)
Is it too late to get that changed?

Hi @keestux

You are right however the Ubidots mqtt broker is not so standard, the development team decided to add a / at the beginning for security issues and versioning management in new versions.
