Yet another update to V3 firmware

Firmware updates could be a chore, but it’s almost impossible to have one bug free 🙂

In this update several annoying bugs were squished and one small new feature added.  I feel like this one has fixed all the “known” issues, so I’m taking V3 out of Beta and using in from now on in all Xronos 2 clocks.  V2 is no longer supported or updated, so please upgrade to V3 if you can.
Fixes:

Fixed Alarm announcement not working when pressing Talk Button
Fixed RF indicator and RF statistics (for RFM12b version)
Fixed incorrect RF frequency shown during clock boot-up on Serial port

Add-on:

RF statistics logic has been updated. It now will always show last time clock received remote sensor update, but will add a date too if it’s been too long since last transmission

Please grab it at usual place.

In related news, I’m very close at offering Remote temperature/humidity sensor (Squaremote) in the Shop.

Firmware V3 Fix (V3.04)

New Firmware was just posted yesterday, however few serious bugs were discovered related to RFM12b receiver and Factory Reset menu option. These are now fixed. Please get latest firmware in the usual place…

And one more thing. If you do plan to use RFM12b library with Xronos Clock please replace RFM12B.h file in your library with one modified for Xronos.

Update your clock firmware to V3 before DST end

If you live in US and in the state that observes Daylight Savings Time or DST, get ready to set your clocks back 1 hour this Sunday …  or not!

We’ve done some testing on the V3 firmware and squashed several serious bugs and added new features
Fixed:

Hours incorrect in 12 hour mode and AM dot not showing up
Date always showing in UTC timezone

New Feature:

Added UTC Timezone if you leave in state or country that doesn’t observe DST.

Version 3.03 is out now on our github repository.

Upload it to your Xronos 2 Clocks, set your Timezone and watch clock change time automatically on Sunday!

Note that this version will work even if you have DS3231 time chip upgrade (there’s no longer separate version for that!).
Also you will need to re-adjust your time after setting Time Zone for the first time. Clock will now reboot itself after important settings was changed (like time zone or RFM).

Enjoy, and let us know if you see any issues!
