Quote from: QBZappy on September 01, 2012, 10:39:12 AMJoeSchmoe007,Unfortunately this seems to be the Achilles heel of obihai since day one. Sometime ago after some complaints about this very issue, obihai made a serious effort in communicating what had changed in the firmware as evidenced by thread Firmware / Advisories / Notifications for OBi Products.They are notoriously slow/negligent at releasing firmware change notes. I would think that there must be a senior software engineer in charge of approving these changes/improvements. It would be easy enough for him/her to write a little blurb on what was changed.Considering all the new OBi202/wifi/BT and the OBiPLUS (perhaps a few other surprises), services/products they are working on, it may be that they don't have the time. The lines of communication between obihai and their customers are essentially sustained on this board. Since this board is really a "marketing tool" disguised in the form of a "product support" site, since there is no significant presence of OBi support, I would think that the Marketing person should be responsible to get that information out to the users. As good as the products may be obihai takes liberties with their customers assuming they know what is best for them in terms of pushing firmware on the units. We don't even know what the changes are at the time of the update. Some internal discipline on the part of obihai to get whatever group of people that need to cooperate on getting this information out on this board is called for. This lack of discipline trickles down and leaves an impression on us. It is normal to expect users of the OBi units to want to know what we are feeding it, considering many have spent hour/days/weeks tweaking it just so. We feel very protective.
