All will be known once they release the firmware update... The "mail confirmation code" is the password for the new security access.
yes i know. but where to put it :-)  i didnt install ui6 yet, but some here did.
It is used as the password for local login and the maybe new fwd server authentication once it is all up and running.

And done.
I already clicked.
Looks nice, even though a bit slow, but that's probably because of new start.
I had to go through some sort of initial setup again, but al devices still there...
now out and about explore a bit
And got update to 1.6.641......

Funny thing is, after clicking on advanced settings, I get the old look back. At the bottom I can revert to new look.

ok now folks... when you get to the login page after making a new account and login on https://cp.mios.com/firmware  you can now click a link to find ur vera  and it will upgrade to the new firmware when selecting ur unit. looks nice but not that much new indeed. like j.hoekstra says it goes to old UI look when going advanced.
edit: takes approx. 10 minutes to finish
edit2 :

errors found so far :

- degrees celcius is in fahrenheit numbers after selecting C in setup wizard  >> can be set in advanced settings>setup>location
- Energy > energy profile not communicating with eemanager server
- User Profile > SMS confirmation code gives "Code" in sended SMS
- My Systems > Settings > Device Information :Application Version: 1.6.641 (probably right and not an error)
- My Systems > Setup Wizard available when allready gone through it
- UI alignment not correct
- UI plugin text not correct placed for some plugins . virtual switch for example.
- History > cannot delete multiple items at once
- Scene settings > no visible delay time in the list of actions, only in edit command in scene.
- advanced view>contact info>mobile  >  other mobile provider that was selected in view
- danfoss thermostate working but shows undefined in device tile and unneccessary buttons. see koburgs post below
- stellaZ thermostate has also a lot of unusable buttons and cannot set proper temp unless one is in advanced mode and there it has cold&hot tempsettings. still works ok when not touched.
- 3rd party apps that require remote login doesn't work. need to change the url to vera-ip/3480/ or vera.com
- vera-alerts doesn't seem to work.
- PLEG doesn't work 100%
- DLNA controller missing input in interface

good things :

faster responding z-wave
UI looks nice and more beginner friendly
everything seems to work
authomation HD still works only not from remote.
so far plugins seem to work ok, some don't but probably will get fixed.

bad things :

totally not new-user/noob friendly
counterintuitive interface
to get to device-settings you would need a tomtom to find the place
some additions like home/away/vacation don't make sense, got no changeable names and can be done in scenes
some plugins like virtual switch not displayed correctly
not communicated with 3rd party developers/testers , so one has to guess how to remote login
2 different logins needed to get into your vera unit
new UI not auto-scaling to windowsize (is it so hard to do ??)
no announcement to users on forum that old cp.mios.com/firmware is going to new beta UI
new android app in store , look for : MMS Vera  (who would've guessed ?)

Hmm,   just want to make sure.
When version 1.6.xxx  is deployed , it will not automatically update my veras ? I will have to allow the devices to update?
I just don't want to be the guinipig , and find out that for example my heating system has shutdown ( with -20 degrees celcius   >:( ) since the the new version won't handle some PLEG , LUUP or plugins.
If the update comes automatically , is there somewhere a setting I can override this and stay with the "old" firmware?
For me, I don't see any reason to upgrade ( for the moment) untill I know for sure all will be working fine.
Thanks,
Cor
you have to press the link to confirm upgrade so ur save :)

New Firmware BUGS:

1. Danish mobile phone numbers is only 8 digit not 9 as it keep asking when setup notifications.
2. can not save profile data

3. Device bug I have some danfoss termostat and they only need the set point  temperature and NOT that old "ON/OFF" see attached photos.

icon change please make it possible to change icons for devices.

the new ui looks more nice indeed.

About the new ios app.
1.  sometime when touching the different tabs the app just hang for seconds. and it slows the whole iphone down
     when exit the app to home screen it look like slow motion. (iphone 5S).

2. climate device danfoss thermostat not showing accurate temp only show 0 degress. (see photo)

Please change the title of this post. This is not a public version of the firmware. Until MCV announces the firmware, there is no public beta of the new firmware and you are on your own if you decide to upgrade. You will NOT receive any support from the Community or MCV!

Well I went ahead and installed before seeing that it was not official just yet. O well.

All my plugins appear to be working well. Which is a big + for MCV for not destroying backwards compatibility, they should be commended .

XBMCstate
WOLping
Weatherplugin
Yamahaplugin 2.0
Squeezebox

Fixed issues for me with sms and email notification which never verified on UI5, the whole UI was what I expected a step forward with design looks a lot cleaner and more organised. I like the History Tab as well to see what has been happening around the house. Also the new scene creation is GOOD however fairly basic, should be expanded upon down the track. Also noted my Zwave network from a basic test feels more responsive.

Only bug encountered so far is remote access from AuthomationHD and I'm expecting other remote control apps is broken atm and not implemented yet. As I understand they changed the way a user logs in and developers will need to re-write their code.

EDIT: MMS Vera app works but is very slow and buggy. Takes open and closing a few times to get remote connection going. Pretty damn ugly compared to other apps unfortunately.

I hear PLEG is semi broken, but I don't use that so I can't comment.

Good work MVC a much needed refreshed UI, now start that bug fixing!

Correct UI6 has introduced a new mechanism to log in remote. So all 3rd party apps will require changes for the new remote access servers which documentation has not been posted yet. So your SOL when wanting to use any of the 3rd party apps with UI6.
