40. Added 'Notification' tab and 'Battery level goes below' notification for the SceneController device.

Interesting. This feature has been removed from the door locks, which never worked. It must have been easier to remove the feature than to get it working!!
I'm sorry, my responses are limited. You must ask the right questions.

I think the fix was to move it from the Settings tab to the Notifications tab (of the device). My battery operated water sensors also show a similar notification option.

It looks like there is a bug with the handling of json files. I noticed it with my RFXtrx plugin. one field is missing in one panel and fields from one panel appear in another panel  too (duplicated).
I will provide screenshots next night.
My files are in code.mios.com

Edit: my device defines 2 panels using flash and problem are on the second panel

For those who are waiting to try adding IR functionality to your Vera, the time has come.
I have only walked throught the steps and it completed all steps without error.

Are there battery percentage values assigned for 'low battery' and 'very low battery'? Meaning, if the notification triggers for 'low battery', how much battery power percentage is left? I went hunting (release notes, doc5.mios.com) for this detail and couldn't find it.

The low battery and very low battery events are reported by the door locks, and not computed by MiOS based on the battery level.

This is an older bug which was fixed in 1.5.137 but reintroduced in 1.5.359. Mantis #1854

Yes, there was no problem with 1.5.346.
Can it be fixed again ?

@lolodomo

Yes, and it would have been fixed in this beta firmware had we managed to reproduce it in at least one other plugin. We thought that this is limited to DAD because it used HTML injection for the variable with the problem. Even if it gets fixed the next week, the fix won't be available until the next public beta.

Was hoping (told) that this release would resolve camera archiving problems. Was getting empty images. I am now getting "unable to retreive data...". Archiving is working in two other units (vera 2 UI4) and vera 3 UI5(rel 1.5.363) with data base "hack" by MCV. Is there something I can/should do after upgrading ? I get same message when going to ALERT's.

Can you develop please ? What exactly can we do now that was not possible before ?

I've noticed that for one of my scenes executing it (mapped to button 5) on either the GE 45600 Scene Controllers also triggers another scene (mapped to button 2). This did not occur with the previous release firmware.

If you have an IR device such as GC100, itach or sq blaster, you can use the Vera to generate a remote control for equipment such as TV or Amp.

It is an embedded Vera functionality that would previously fail but now work and therefore anyone can generate their own remote more most common equipment without special knowledge. Once you have followed the step thought add device, add an ir device , the outcome will appear as a remote in the AV gear tab. Also add the function to smartphone apps such as Vera mobile.

I hope this explains better.

I created a couple of simple scenes with1.5.408.  One to turn a light on and one to turn it off.  The triggers were the alarm state of the dsc plugin.  After creating these scenes (and after a save), each trigger was listed twice.  I had to delete the two extras.
