Re: VeraMate updates (UPDATE DELAY for February)
« Reply #31 on: February 25, 2015, 04:43:14 am »
I'll make the exception to update this thread with a bit of an update to mention a delay in the updates planned for February.

For the last 2.5 weeks I've been travelling around Russia, Mongolia, and China, which has mostly been out of internet accessibility.  The 8.8 release should have been released at the start of this time to fix the main preset-mode button crash, as well as bring in new beta functionality for the today widget.

That didn't go as planned as Apple rejected the update as they had an issue with one of the icons.  This, as well as a backlog of questions I'll be sorting through, will be the top priority now - we'll be back on top of things shortly.   The current timeline for Apple approvals is currently around 9 days (painfully), meaning barring any more "issues" by Apple, an 8.8 release should be expected sometime around 7th/8th.

Apologies if this has put anyone out.
James

Version 8.8 (Released 27 Feb, 2015)

The VeraMate Today widget is finally here!  Please read the FAQ for instructions on setting up, and please note there are limitations with this initial version.

Also:
  • NEW: Allowing dimming to a percentage via voice control.
  • BUG: Fix issue with preset mode crashing the app.
  • BUG: A problem was found for some users with more then one UI7 VERA not connecting properly due to a timing issue.

[The release was able to be pushed through sooner then then previous message as I was able to work with Apple to expedite]

Unfortunately iOS versions below iOS8 will not be able to get the latest update due to access to code that is only available in iOS8.  This will be temporary, and support for the previous iOS 6 and 7 will continue in a later version.
