When is the next release up?
« on: September 13, 2017, 10:38:21 am »
I'm one of those, who lost most of the sensors and a few switches by stepping into the upgrade-trap. I hear that downgrading is an option but also that the next version will fix this vexatious situation.

Downgrading has its cons, so waiting a few days or weeks is the preferred option.

Does anyone know how long we need to wait?

No, I didn't. Patiently, I wait...

I just updated my vera edge to 1.7.3014 (upgrading has never been an issue for me before this) and it made a mess of things this time. Restoring my backup got most everything back to normal with a few glitches. After restoring and then rebooting it seems to be back to normal.

Since I have a Vera 3 with limited memory, I typically do a a backup with z-wave, factory reset, update the firmware, and then restore form backup. This has been very successful for me.

I have not updated to the current firmware mainly because there are no benefits for my current setup and I have heard too many stories about disappearing devices.
