Feature Request: Firmware release notes

I like the ability to see and upgrade firmware across Ubiquiti devices. It would be useful to be able to see the release notes as otherwise have to dive into the web site to find them. Thanks

Re: Feature Request: Firmware release notes

Absolutely! I never understood why so much imporatant

documentation was lost in a maze of forum posts instead

of being included with downloads. Other manufacturers

typically link the two files in one ZIP file, for example.

 

It would be even better if there were one place where all

the updated files for a product line were ZIPped together.

I have to chase around in Downloads to find all the various

files related to different models; it's incredibly tedious.   Dave

Re: Feature Request: Firmware release notes

I believe that this is critical!  I cannot find the release notes for the last TWO releases of firmware for the airCube product line, but the system is quick to let me know it is there and that I can update the devices.

 

Either a link to the page with the release notes or a link to that specific version's release notes would be fantastic.

Re: Feature Request: Firmware release notes

@SimonHP  @dbrandmeyer  @Dave-D  Hello guys. We are hearing your feedback and we agree that documentation for new FW is very important and it should be readily available for you. Please be aware that providing this service is not as straightforward as it may look though. Right now we need to finish ongoing modernization of  https://www.ui.com/download/ in order to enable the dataflow needed for UNMS to show starter guides, data sheets and complete release notes for specific devices.

Sorry, but this isn't necessarily linked to UNMS at all.

 

Instead of putting release notes only in forum posts,

also include them with the binaries in the Downloads

page. This is what most tech companies do. It isn't

even a dev team task--it's for your documentation

specialists to sort out.

 

And instead of making folks who do broad support

for multiple products, combine the binaries with

release notes for all products in an update packate.

For example, with AirOS, most of us use NanoBeam,

PowerBeam, Rocket and so on; now we have to

do dozens of clicks [and now the tedious 'agree' to

each] just to be sure we gather all the latest files.

 

I love the idea that UNMS could link to documentation,

but there's no need to wait for that.   Dave
