Early Access Software Release 1.9.3 (03-04-2023)
This list is preliminary as of 3nd of April 2023 for version 1.9.3 (f7f669e5) and may change without further notice.
Please note that this is a preview version of the upcoming Lampy 2.0 software. Some features may not be implemented yet or do not work as expected and you may find bugs which hinder your workflow or may even be show critical. We do not take responsibility for any issues that affect a show that this software version is used on. However, please report those issues to us using the link provided above.
We will not increase version numbers with every nightly build, but instead we’ll increase them as we see fit with new features provided. However the text in the brackets points us to the exact version of the code that an update has been built with, so please make sure to include it.
You may downgrade to the Release Version 1.04 at any time but shows saved with this early access release are not compatible with the previous release version. So do not to backup your shows before updating the console.
How to give feedback
This time around we are using https://showtec-lampy.nolt.io for feedback.
Please make sure to enter all your feedback there. They also have a nice mobile version of the board, so it should be a lot more comfortable than google sheets. Please refrain from posting bugs / feature requests in skype, whatsapp, facebook groups or messenger or other means of communication.
New Versioning Scheme
We have changed the version number scheme to semantic versioning, meaning Lampy version numbers will look like “x.y.z. (aabbcc32)”
X is the major version number which will be increased only when major changes are introduced (such as Multicell and the UI-Rewrite in v2).
Y is the minor version number which will be increased when features are added.
Z is the “Bugfix” portion of the user number which will be increased when the release only contains bugfixes or as we see fit.
The text in the brackets points us to a specific version of the code an update has been built with.
Please make sure to include the full version number, for example Version 1.9.3 (f7f669e5) in your feedback

How do i get back to the previous firmware version?

We updated the lampy console, and now it does not recognize the usb anymore, also the ethernet connection does not work anymore..

is there any time horizon until when 2.0 will be released?
The summer season is starting slowly and the question is do I stay on 1.03 or do I switch.
