I'm fairly certain Google is going to maintain the ability to make a calendar "public".  While not ideal for our purposes, there are hundreds (or thousands) that rely on public Google calendars.  Anything from user groups to small businesses that want to make that information available on their publicly available websites.
Here is my understanding -- google evidently went to the same school of documentation as MCV, so it's hard to get the complete and accurate story ....

Yes - you can set your calendar to public, in which case the calling API (for plugins) will still need an API key but that's it.  However, if you do not want everyone in google land to have (read) access to your calendar - then you need to make it private.

Some people may be happy to let the world know their schedule - but I'm not one of them  :o .  Especially as it relates to when I may not be at home!  If we go beyond calendar and think about email related plugins and other more sensitive apps ....... the need becomes more apparent.

I have sorted out authenticated access for my plugin (GCal_II) using a service account and can happily run it on my PC - but without  'crypto' it's a no-go for vera.   I could probably figure out how to compile on the vera and make a Luacrypto module - something that would take MCV an hour and me probably a few weeks - I hope I don't have to go that route for a module that, in this day and age, really ought to be available as a standard option.

I'm not saying MVC should include all possible modules in a standard deployment, but there are a few that are pretty obvious candidates for a library of MVC provided options.  Some security modules and json (encode / decode) come to mind as immediate candidates.

Hello,
I'm part of the beta program with the beta2 version.
Since the beginning of this beta test, I never managed to login remotely on the unit...
I log in at https://getvera.stg.mios.com/users/login
that brings me to the screen at https://getvera.stg.mios.com/dashboard/myunits where I can see my unit assigned. I then click on Connect
which then brings me to a unreachable website with url (I changed some numbers with xxxx) https://relay/relay/uiredirect/device/3xxxxxx7
(this with Firefox and Chrome)

Did you encounter the same thing?
I signaled this at least two times with the bottom link Provide Feedback and never got an answer...
If they are ready to release the final version, I hope their systems are now completely configured

The beta firmware uses special URLs for authentication from the production firmwares. Once the official UI7 firmware is finished and released, they will update it to use the production URLs for authentication and remote access.

Could someone explain to me why Vera is spending resources on TWO version of the UI, neither of which is currently working completely and appear to be on track to complete at approximately the same time?

Not sure what you mean? MCV is only working on one version.

I guess I'm not clear myself then. I thought there were two versions being worked, UI6 and UI7. Although I guess in truth UI6 is production, it's everyone else scrambling to make plugins work under UI6 and UI7 ... is that close to the fact?

There is no work being done on UI6. All work is being done on UI7.

Yikes.  UI7 next week?
Long Live UI5!  (OK finally made the switch to UI7 in January 2018, and am pretty happy....)
