Adding new features
Releasing updates quickly
I would like a auto upgrade function for minor upgrades that doesnt impact the device. IE forces into AP mode due to major changes in system.
The current check option in firmware does advise of impact. and outcome.
The firmware could check the repo server weekly for changes then upgrade automatically if minor.
This is might be too fancy. LOL
I prefer the end user to be in control. But how do you get notified of upgrade available?
Thankyou to all that use this firmware and Matts MK-Blindcontrol system, it is awsome and cost effective. to give us that Smarthome that all of us had an input to develope.
