Sadly, this new firmware appears to be a lot less stable than the patched up 7.0.19 I had.
1. I have observed a self vera reboot I have not seen for months
2. Luup reload also more frequent causing the ecobee to lose its token frequently.
3. at 2am I am getting a false alarm from one of my door sensors. I am certain the door sensor is not tripping. Somehow it flickers during the nightly heal and sound the sirens.
4. WAPIRZ1 partially fixed. Still dealing with a ghost temperature sensor device.

Will be opening a ticket...

Only have a few apps on my vera edge:

System Monitor
Imperihome
Deus Ex Machina II
HouseModes plugin
Concord 4 plugin

The previous update was a disaster for my vera.  Tech support identified the Concord 4 plugin as the culprit.  I would get about 6 LUUP restarts a day, usually when a scene was triggered.  As a result of the LUUP restart the triggered scene would fail to execute.  Geofence also went to a useless and unreliable status. 

Some work from tech support and this update have brought me back to a stable system.  All previous issues gone.  Tech support advised removing the concord 4 device and restoring a backup, along with fixes in this latest update were responsible for the return of stability.

Given the relative speed this update was pushed out I am wondering if there were not critical issues caused with the previous UI7 version.

I have the Concord 4 plug in and didn't have any problems with the last few upgrades.  I think this just highlights how fragile the these systems are.

Agreed.

I was about to move over to ST but would have to rebuild my entire system.  The concord 4 interface with vera has me hostage but I was so frustrated I was about to jump.

Is the "can't detect device" bug fixed yet?

Following the comments of the new firmware update installations and I am hesitating to do the upgrade. My VeraPlus seems to be working just fine the way it is under 1.7.2414 (after some remote tweaks from the Vera techs).

What's the down side of NOT installing the new firmware?

To help counter the natural phenomenon of folks with no problems not posting, I will say that upgrading to this release went totally smoothly for me.  I use VeraEdge, have some 50 devices (light switches and thermostats only), and use scenes (but only relatively simple ones).

The Vera Edge and Plus upgrades without a hitch and are pretty stable. The Vera 3 complained LUUP reload was taking longer than normal and to contact support but after powering it down and back up it worked as normal and showed the latest firmware installed.

I'm not experiencing any weird LUUP reloads or Vera reboots on any of the units. Somehow I've lucky these last 6 years I've had Vera running my HA and she's been pretty stable. Granted, my Vera's are all on power conditioning UPS systems as are most my electronics due to the high brown-out frequency in my area. So power fluctuations or power drops don't impact her functionality.

1. Well Support fixed the WAPIRZ for me in spite of telling me it is not fully supported by the new firmware.
2. Can't figure out why I get the Vera restarts. They are not super frequent, comes once every few days, but I have seen it twice since the upgrade about a week ago.
3. Luup reloads are a lot more frequent. Though I am keeping my fingers crossed right now not having seen one in 2 days. I am starting to wonder if I am having a memory leak as my available memory dwindles down gradually.
4. I have had a total of 5 false alarms at night during the nightly heals from 3 different door sensors. Support asked me to unpair and re-add the sensor to my network when I thought it was only one of them. Now that I know the alarm comes from different sensors, and I have over a dozen of them, I don't think it is an acceptable answer. I have never had a false door alarm in years. Needless to say how unpleased I am to have the sirens go off at 2am...

My available memory had been hovering around 60000 to 80000 very consistently for years and since the latest firmware update, I am lingering around 51000.  Not noticing it fluctuating.

Don, how do you monitor your memory?

The System Monitor plug in  is probably the easiest way.  Gives you basic stats about memory usage, CPU usage, and when the last restart or reboot happened.  You can also use it to get alerts when available memory goes below a certain value.

What shallowearth said.

I just notice my free memory jumps to 70000. Hmmm. The only "tinkering" I did was replace the battery on a motion sensor and reinclude it.
