I can see that 15.02 has a RC load.. But when you run it, you are told of the new features, but they are the same as 15.01 and 14.12.

Where can you get a list of changes that have been added in 15.02 so that I can actually Beta test the new version?

    The list of changes is usually incorporated when a stable release is published. For the changes incorporated into release candidates you will have to check the Github source. Afaik the idea behind that scheme is that people testing RCs should be able to get the information from the source commits. People who have troubles finding the information there are recommended to work with stable releases.

    Understood.. I have no idea where to get the "source commits".. But since I test software for a living, I always like to try out the RC versions just to see if I can find anything obvious.

    But if I don't know whats changed, its very difficult for me to find any problems (other than obvious things which get broken).

    Unless you're having an issue with the latest release, you shouldn't be using the RCs.

    It's also quite a bit of work to keep release notes up to date on very RC. So that's why I collect the changes when I'm doing the final release.

    Note that 15.02 will be a quick bugfix release to address some issues that showed up in 15.01

    Imuse the stable release for 99% of my prints but always look at the RC versions to see whats new and to have a quick play to see if there are any obvious problems.

      • 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
