The next beta version Comfigurator 3.6.1 will have the following changes
Update firmware for Controller always asks to Scan for Modules
When a new file is opened and scan for modules discovers KT03, selecting KT03 will cause an exception
Upgrading KT03 by direct connection to PC using the KT03 USB port has an error message that UCM version 6 is required.
Latest Firmware Upgrades are shown After scanning for Modules, the latest firmware for each module will be shown so you do not have to check for updates for every module like in 3.6.0
The Latest Version is shown next to the Current version as shown in the above screenshot. Note that the screenshot shows some "Current" versions as higher than "latest" versions (eg GSM) because of beta firmware that have been installed.
The firmware can be upgraded in the same was as in 3.6.0 ie by Right clicking and selecting "Check for Firmware Updates" or Firmware Upgrade from Local File"
Trying to upgrade a module from Local File with firmware shown as "Unknown" after scanning will allow the firmware file to be selected. It should give an error message "Minimum firmware is version 6 for Firmware upgrade by Bus"
Velbus and Zwave Configurator still has a few bugs
Why not have a boolean somewhere in settings that says "include betas in version check?" and then in the "Latest Release" column show betas as well but maybe in a different colour. With the boolean set the firmware upgrade would also download a beta.
The screenshot will be modified so that it does not show any beta versions, when we release the final Comfigurator 3.6.x
The boolean would be good but there is so many things happening with comfigurator
The number of people who test beta firmware probably is a smaller number (and smarter ) so they may not need such urgently
