    Is this live yet?  The firmware update page still has a link to the older firmware (at least for Windows).

    Sorry for the confusion! The updater version is different from the firmware version. This firmware update is live already, and we would suggest using the updater to receive the latest version.

    This update has done nothing for the solution of the actual problems:

    - Buffer switch failure

    - Connection problems between Palette 2, Canvas or DIY Hub, printer

    Hi Arnd, we're currently testing a solution for the Buffer switch failure and will have another update soon to help solve this. Concerning the connection issues, we've also updated the plugins recently, so please try updating these as well.

    To further Conrad's point, having the updater file named with a version number different than the firmware rev # is going to confuse people.  To cut down on the number of times you guys have to answer that question, you might consider re-naming those download files to match the firmware revision number.  

    As it stands the file has a misleading number in the name, and after you launch it there is nothing to tell you which FW version it contains.  Since just last week I have two P2 FW downloads on my computer, they are named exactly the same thing, have the same date, have the same file size, and have nothing on screen once launching them to denote what version they are.  The only way I can tell them apart is the date I downloaded them.

    Thanks, going to runs some tests on 1.2.1 now.

    Also Jonny, if you guys just released updates to the Octoprint plugins recently, they are not showing up as available updates within the Octoprint interface.  

    Here is what I'm seeing, Canvas and P2 both say 1.1.0, which are the same versions that were available at product launch I believe.  I've had them installed for at least a week, and have never updated.

    Hey IronHalo, thanks for the feedback, I understand how it can be confusing! The Firmware Updater is Version 1.0.1 while the actual Firmware is V 1.2.1. We'll figure out a way to simplify this for users.

    Concerning the plugins, the most recent versions are both 1.1.0, so you're up to date! If you're not sure, you can always download via URL again, but it looks like you should be fine.

    Thanks for clarifying Jonny.  Sorry, I thought I read that you guys had released new plugins within the last couple of days, so was expecting to see another plugin update. Will continue testing with these versions.

    Thanks!

    anyway to roll back the palette firmware update

    Not at this time. We'd recommend not rolling back to older versions of the firmware as many fixes are made to various parts of Palette on each update.
