Now get newest reverts to Jan 2, 2019 build 12626

Post by doncurtis » Tue Jan 22, 2019 12:21 am

I have meteobridge set to get newest on boot. I had the Jan 13th 2019 build of 3.9 and have meteobridge set to reboot every Sunday at 11:59.

After last night's reboot, I am now back to 3.9 Jan 2nd build (the one with no ability to revert to 3.7 or 3.8.

I made sure it was set to get newest on boot, hit save and apply, rebooted and again get the old build.

License tab shows updates stop 31 Jan 2019.

So...where's the newer builds?

More info...

I dropped back to 3.6, rebooted, reset to get newest, saved, rebooted and it came up with today's build of 3.9.

I then selected stick at 3.8,saved and rebooted and it came up at 3.8.

However, the version dialog reverts to get newest on reboot and offers no option to stick with 3.8

In fact, a reboot of 3.8, even though the dialog says get newest on boot... Stays at 3.8

Anyone know the changes of the 22nd Jan build 1913? So far the releases notes only show the 17th changes.

Sounds like Boris is busy with work in progress?

This automatic blind weekly reboot and get newest on boot is something asking for a problem and as far as I am concerned firmware updates should only ever be done manually when one is satisfied there is actually a real need and the stability has been confirmed.

Why would it be asking for trouble, get newest on boot is the default and you can't advance unless you use it. I realize each new build (i would call it software, not firmware) could have bugs, but one would presume Boris doesn't blindly build and release without at least testing the bug fix or functionality changes.

When your license purchase is older than 2 years you are stuck at latest version after that 2 year period. That might be the reason you are stuck to 3.8. If so, there is an orange remark on "System" tab.

Yes, I do some testing before pushing out a new release, but sometimes I introduce new errors by a new release. I am on limited capacity and try to find a balance between update speed and reliability. But it will always be a trade-off. Please take into account that this a very niche SW and we don't have large development and test capacity, otherwise the SW price will be much much higher. My impression is, that we nevertheless do reasonably well with stability and moving forward, but your milage may vary...

My 2 years isn't up yet... According to license tab, it's up on the 31st of this month.. January 31,2019.

The bug continues to be that 3.8 doesn't "stick" and loading 3.8 from the current newest build does in fact revert to 3.8 but thereafter, a reboot takes it to the latest build... There is no option in 3.8 to stick with 3.8


I have no idea what your plans are, when the 31st comes in a few days.... I do not want to be "stuck" on an incomplete, beta version 3.9

Don't worry, this always applies to the final versions. You will continue to have all the 3.9 updates until 3.9 gets final and then you will rest with the final 3.9 (unless you opt for 2 more years of updates, to support and to benefit from coming developments).
