Running Ubuntu Linux 16.04LTS, I usually wait until the Cura version is updated in the PPA repository. It's been a little bit since 2.7 was released and I'd like to give it a try. I downloaded the appimage from your site, but how do I get it to see the printer and filament settings that I've been using in the apt-get installed 2.6 version? Thanks.

    Since 50+ people viewed this topic and not one person either knew the answer or cared to help, I'll do what I always do... figure it out myself and then post for people who also have the same troubles I do.

    So... run the 2.7 appimage, so that it can create the directories it needs, and then shut it down. Go into the "quality" directory of your 2.6 setup - [ ~/.local/share/cura/2.6/quality ]. Copy all of the .cfg profiles and then paste those into the "quality" directory of your 2.7 setup ~/.local/share/cura/2.7/quality ]. When you restart Cura 2.7, the new profiles will be there.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
