Software Version in eMMC vs latest build


#1

Hi there, can anyone help me as to the differences between the software that came supplied on the internal BBB memory and the latest 2.5-5 image? - Basically i am not sure which would be best to use.

The cockpit GUI on the internally supplied software looks cleaner and i really like the connection delay time indicator in the lower left. But i for some reason i cannot access cloud9 with this version of the software. (perhaps it is a slightly older version?)

However I understand that the 2.5-5 is the very latest build, and cloud9 ide works, but the cockpit GUI doesn't feel as finished as the one supplied.

Also Is there a new build coming out soon that will incorporate all the recent changes (especially the control-loop to maintain heading and depth - this looks amazing)

Hope someone can shed some light.

Here is a link to the change list for the next pending release.

It does dial in the UI a bit more, lots of stability fixes. Mainly waiting on final testing at this point.

As for Cloud9, I will have to look, I was under the impression it was working on the built in version.

2.5-5 image is not a stable release. it is BETA. if u like to fiddle with the code and new feature go for the latest. cloud9 and dashboard does not work simply because in the image, there is no code for it. u need to manually update from github.
