Firmware Releas 3.2.4
It’s with great pleasure that we are now releasing the next generation firmware for the TopBrewers as of today. This version has been going through extensive beta testing for the past 6 months, and will bring a wealth of new features and enhancement for the TopBrewer fleet. Including TopJuicer as well.
In the future, we hope to release more frequently so changes are less minor, and we can get new feature done faster. Of course, this will be downloaded automatically to the machine.
The big change is a re-architecture of our source code, which makes us able to work faster and more efficient with our internal processes for releasing software much more smoothly – and with less or no bugs. In the end, this will benefit the overall vision of being able to iterate faster in a stable and organised way for all product development.
Also with 3.2 Bluetooth Classic and Bluetooth Low Energy now works on the same firmware, and both CoffeeCloud and firmware download is now possible on both external user interfaces.
The 3.2 is now a release candidate, and we will be rolling it out internationally over-the-air as soon as we can, so we urge everyone to get this release on as many TopBrewer as quick as possible.
3.0.6 or above
All machines running 3.0.6 can be auto-updated over-the-air by Scanomat, so please file a ticket at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want us to update a specific- or fleet of machine(s).
When the firmware has been downloaded on the machine, you only need to press the YES button on the keypad, and the firmware will be applied (see info about auto-update below)
3.1.10 or above
All machines running 3.1.10 will need to get this update done via the Barista program or simply by dragging the firmware file into the ‘update’ folder. We also offer USB dongles that can be purchased from Scanomat, which will update the software on the machine without needing a technician or a PC. Just simply plug it in and press a button.
An important notice is, that with Firmware 3.2 you can enable a new setting called Auto-Update.
If the machine has downloaded a firmware over-the-air, you can with Auto-Update enabled, let the machine boot to the newest firmware without any user intervention.
The TopBrewer will simply now boot up with the new firmware it has downloaded, and update automatically. This can be very beneficial and effective for machines where you want the update to be instant and solve an issue fast in the future.
It’s a requirement to enable this parameter when installing the new firmware on all machines!
Input serial number:
Remember if serial number is not inputted into machine through Barista program, the machine will in the future have a lot of defects. So its important to do this on all machines that does not have this already. You can review if the machine has a serial number in its memory by going to the ‘Hardware’ section of the Barista program.
All machine shipped after December 2014 have had serial number inputted from factory.
We highly recommend that every machine you put 3.2 on, has the Auto-Update enabled so machines can download new firmware automatically.
We are very excited about this release, as it brings us closer to a connected world of coffee machine operation, CoffeeCloud connectivity and better stability for all TopBrewer machines.
Also soon, it will be possible to change recipes remotely.
As always, please report all questions, feature request, bugs etc. to email@example.com
Please review below Changelog at your convenience.
