I know that we are running behind on some of the features you have all been waiting for. So, we have built a road map that creates an efficient, feature rich, and best part, fast time line that gets you the best bits as fast as we can plan, build, and test them. We will be doing three software updates over the next three months to get things like Ethernet control, HDMI, text overlay, faster saving, cinema DNG, auto save, and even a UI update to you as fast as possible.
The biggest reason for the delays thus far are the current operating system. The original software was released with Arago, which was an Linux variant that was used with the Chronos' CPU. It is not very intuitive under the hood and it doesn't play well with new features. So, we thank the old operating system for it's faithful service and it is time we switched to something that can support the features our customers want. The very last in a three part update, will be an final update to a Debian based Linux system.
The 0.3.1 update, first of three, is currently on a time line for the end of August or early September that will include:
We have a map of what we are working on for software. Green means "completed", yellow is "in progress". Arrows show what depends on what. For example, the final implementation on the right depends on the D-Bus API, which has had the video control component made, and the D-Bus API Mock, which is currently being developed.
