Just updated yesterday.  Everything seemed to go well except after trying to verify the updated version on the firmware screen I got a message stating that the memory was full.  Everything went downhill from there and I was getting errors like "Error in Lua code in scenes and events" at the top of the UI.  I was no longer able to remotely access the unit or save any scenes or settings.  Turns out the memory on the unit was 98% full.  Called tech support and they were able to fix the issue by deleting the z-wave firmware files from other countries that were included in the update to release some memory.  Now I'm down to 81% full memory and everything is working again.  I email the beta feedback but just wanted to post my finding here in case anyone else had the same issue with the lates beta release.  Great experience with support and happy they were able to answer my call right away and resolve the issue.  These are beta after all and am very happy that they are willing to help resolve these issues right away.

I have to do the same thing after every upgrade. Before upgrading the device was at 71%, after upgrading 92% (I think), and after removing the other country's z-wave firmware was back down to 73%.

I have to do the same thing as well.  Why Vera refuses to fix this and instead manage all of these supoprt tickets manually doing the same thing is beyond me.  At the very least, automate deleting the unneeded files if you wont fix the partition.

So each day for some reason the z-wave firmware files re-download or something because they are back after deleting them the previous day.  I downgraded back to the last public firmware and at least I'm down to 90% full with the z-wave files.  Deleting them gets me down to 75% full but then the next day they reappear and I'm back to 90%.  Very strange.

If you don't use a USB stick to store your logs, you might want to flush that too. There are a number of obsolete files the Vera keeps. Usually CS will log in and try to flush them for you if you contact them but yeah... it's not the most efficient use of time.

This is for scenes though. We may have the same thing for the startup lua in terms of # of lines?

yes, it seems to be limited to 65k chars. now I must decide to refactor everything (and that's not so easy?) or just move some logic to my Raspberry PI (via OpenLuup or C# under .NET Core). anyway, that's really bad, because modules in LUA are not very different in terms of performance from writing everything in a single block.

Anyway, I got a couple of "cannot write user data" today (at least 3) and subsequent unit freeze. I also had a couple of devices re-configured, loosing their correct configuration.

So far, I'm not impressed in a good way.

My Veraplus is showing "Can't detect device" for my hue bulbs. I have set the status "FailedStatusReport" in the hub and it was working great until the latest beta firmware.

Same here. In my case it results with problems with accessing the unit remotely, error about writing user data, but I don't have freezing of the controller
But I have such problems in one out of three controllers.

With one of my test Edge's, the latest Beta flashed the UZB dongle (ACM0) back to default (tty) and deleted all devices. When reset back to ACMO it appears not to communicate, with CS ATM seeking a solution.
Otherwise I'll need to revert to the last "good" known FW version, but it's not good news for users who use a external radio.

Installed this Beta on my test VeraPlus.  Paired a Fibaro Wallplug and Vera create two devices: the plug itself with on/off icon and an unnamed device with Watts and KWH. But this 2nd device does notning... Energy usage in Watts is shown on the main device as usual.  I never saw this before and I have several Fibaro wallplugs and also Everspring and Benext. Never saw this before...
When searching for a certain device when you want to pair it now all devices are listed randomly in stead of alphabetic order. Very difficult to find the right one.
These are certainly no improvements!!

Also seen that devices are random order when including so tricky to find!

There has been a new beta version posted to the forum that should address all problems reported to this point. I apologize for the extreme delay in getting this to you guys.  Thank you for your patience
