The firmware 7.047 beta changes are

Known Issues
  1. After updating Keypad LCD words using keys *1, Scanning of UCMs by Comfigurator will detect UCM #1 as HDL. This is an old bug
  2. RC01 Keypad buttons (0-9, *, #) cause the keypad to have a long beep, and are not able to work as keypad
  3. Sending SMS to Comfort with UCM/GSM will reply "Unknown command" if there is no control Menu Feedback, even though the  control is performed correctly
Bugs Fixed
  1. Night Time Flag did not work. Night Time flag is set by Sunset and Cleared by Sunrise according to the Sunrise/Sunset times for each city
New Features
  1. When system is being armed, the F key will cancel the arming, similar to the * key. Previously, the F key while arming produced a long beep
  2. New keypad keys supported in Comfort protocol. This is for support for new Wizcomfort software to be released
  3. User flags has been increased from 64 to 256 ie 0 to 255
Please download from http://www.cytech.biz/comfort_ultra_firmware.html?category_id=101 for those who are affected by the Night Time flag issue

This is an explanation of the assignment of user flags to Night Time flag
Iif you assign, eg Flag 64 to Night Time Flag, then the Night time flag state is copied to Flag 64. By checking Flag64 you can know if it is Night, ie after sunset and before sunrise as set in Sunrise/Sunset Time

the ccommand F?nn in Comfigurator Monitor IO also returns the state of the flag

eg
> F?40  (40 is 64 in hexadecimal)
< F?4001 means Flag 64 on
<F?4000 means Flag 64 off

At sunset, the UCM will report
<FL4001
ie Flag 64 =1

At sunrise
<FL4000
is flag 64 = 0

The next Comfigurator 3.8 will have a setting for this flag assignment

In the meantime, go to  Location 374  to assign a flag number to Night Flag

eg Location 374 = 64 assigns Flag 64 to Night Time flag

Interestingly I had installed the beta version via local file upgrade but today in Comfigurator even though I had "7.047" (beta) already installed it still wanted me to upgrade to "7.047" again.    Are they different in some way as I'm sure I've never had this issue with Betas turning Live in the past?

Comfigurator would not know if the installed version is beta or not
It should compare the firmware version  with the latest on the server

I have not encountered that. Check for updates said "ULT 7.047 is the latest"

It definitely did it for sure.  After  starting Comfigurator and logging in I first upgraded my GSM4 firmware and the system rescanned as usual.  I then clicked on the "Controller" node and it listed:
  • Comfort Version = 7.047
  • Latest Version = 7.046
I did a Check for firmware updates and it brought up the dialog box asking me if i wanted to upgrade to 7.047! I downloaded and upgraded the firmware and all was well after that with future checks. 
I don't particularly care as pretty minor but was strange observation so thought I'd feed back.

strange
Perhaps the internet connection was bad at that time, and the correct version info was not obtained in Comfigurator?

I have just been upgrading any units in our stores.
It does appear that by adding items at random and then scanning Comfigurator sometimes uses the values it already has its as though it does not refresh the screen.
So for example removing one UCM that had just been upgraded to 7.028 and then replacing it (same ID) with another older version UCM, comfigurator appeared to scan but still came up with 7.028.. I had to reset the main board and then re-scan

What's the best way to convert a KT03 slider value (say with a minute scale) into a seconds value for a timer, using this new feature?
Thx,

A KT03 slider is mapped to a Counter

so you can program as follows, assuming counter 2

Get Counter Counter002
Do Response XXX After 0 Seconds Using Timer01

This will take the value from counter 2 which came from the slider and use it as the delay before the Response XXX

What about scaling. What's the best way of converting a slider with a range of 1-10 into seconds (60 - 600)? A KT03 slider can only have values of 0 to 255.
Thanks!

You can use the Multiply action
eg

Get Counter Counter002
Multiply Immediate 60
Set Counter002
Do Responsex After 0 Seconds Using Timer01

counters have range of up to 65535
