Firmware 1.19 released


  • administrators

    As some of you may have noticed, I have released firmware 1.19 for the Duet series. You can find it here https://github.com/dc42/RepRapFirmware/releases.

    This release has taken much longer than originally planned, in part due to the number of OEM requests for feature additions that we had to satisfy. But I've also implemented some major items from the firmware wishlist; for example, bed levelling using multiple independent leadscrews, and resume-after-power-fail.

    The plan for future releases is as follows:

    • If necessary, additional 1.19 point releases to fix bugs
    • Possibly a 1.20 release within the next 8 weeks
    • After that will come version 2.0 firmware for the Series 2 Duets (WiFi and Ethernet) and their successors only. The firmware architecture will be changed to use a real time operating system (RTOS), which will make some of the future enhancements we have planned much easier to implement.


  • Great work David! Lots of nice features in 1.19!



  • Will 2.0 continue to support the beta Wifi boards? I assume they will since very little was changed between beta and release.


  • administrators

    Yes



  • Are series 2 Duets what ships now or a newer rev. not yet out? I only just got mine.



  • I believe they are the duetwifi and duet ethernet, but not the duet 0.6 and duet 0.85. Correct me if Im wrong Tony, DC42.

    @DjDemonD:

    That is correct.



  • 1.19 working perfectly for me. Many thanks. I can see this has been a very busy period with the PCB effector as well as this update. Don't work too hard.


  • administrators

    Thanks for the feedback!



  • Upgraded nicely, thank you for all the hard work 🙂



  • The Web UI still showing Vin instead of CPU temp and interval of Vin is in degrees Celsius.


  • administrators

    It is supposed to display VIN where CPU temp used to be. It displays the units as V for me, not degC. Please go to the Settings page of DWC and verify which version of the web interface you are running.

    You can see the MCU temperature if you click on "Extra" near the top left corner.



  • I am running DWC 1.19 final. Here's the output for a grep (unarchived the .zip and the language.xml.gz inside it). I am talking about the tooltip.

    grep -i Minimum language.xml
    		<string t="Minimum: {0} °C Maximum: {1} °C">Minimum: {0} °C Maximum: {1} °C</string>
    		<string t="Minimum">Mínimo</string>
    		<string t="Minimum: {0} °C Maximum: {1} °C">Minimum: {0} °C Maximum: {1} °C</string>
    
    

    Regardless of this bug, isn't the MCU temperature more important because it can vary a lot? Chances that Vin varies are small (toasted or underpowered supply). Motor EMF surges are short so they will not be displayed nor seen on the UI.

    Thanks, I didn't spot that. Will fix it in the next version.

    Chris moved the CPU temperature display to the Extra list because there is now the facility to display up to 10 additional temperatures, and there isn't room for all of them on the main page.



  • I am getting the error that "DuetWifiFirmware.bin is not valid for these electronics" HELP! I have done the erase and reset, but no luck.

    I have tried it over Wifi and USB but I m getting the same issue.

    Edit: I may have solved it, I have just seen that there is an additional few steps for upgrading firmware from 18.2 and below. I will give that a try!



  • Nope still the same problem:

    SENT: M997 S0:1
    READ: Error: Firmware binary "DuetWiFiFirmware.bin" is not valid for this electronics.

    😞

    My guess is that you have not downloaded the firmware file correctly. It should be 321Kb in size.



  • Spot on seems there was a issue with the download. Now I have it all installed but apparently M587 is not recognized?


  • administrators

    M587 will not work until you have enabled the WiFi module with M552 S0.
