Testing firmware 3.6.90 - Do not install, use the stable version instead.

Recommended Posts

There is a firmware version 3.6.90 currently available as testing. However, this update has nothing of user value. We are currently testing a newer linux kernel (as the one we have has some nasty bugs)

However, this new linux kernel exposes a old bug that has been popping up occasionally. But with a much higher frequency. The main problem is that your printer stops printing if this bug happens. We are currently using this testing version internally to diagnose the problem, but that means the testing version has stability problems.

Maybe there should be a more general feedback to users, since I hardly believe that users come here daily unless they have an issue.

So maybe adding a text explaining to what they are updating might be helpful if the testing beta is know to have serious problems.

There's room on the screen for a minimal txt, and scroll to add more lines, the um3 even can show png on the screen, so...

@neotko Maybe we could do that but we've recently created an internal version that is only available here... So I would expect the testing version to become a bit more stable in the future.

As currently we pushed a release to testing when it needed to be installed on multiple machines in the office ;)

    • Ultimaker Cura | a new interface
      We're not only trying to always make Ultimaker Cura better with the usual new features and improvements we build, but we're also trying to make it more pleasant to operate. The interface was the focus for the upcoming release, from which we would already like to present you the first glance.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
