It'll be interesting to see if all the Extreme owners get this special setup service when the Beta comes available.
USB drivers, system specific drivers, specific DACS that individuals are using, previous changes in eveyone's Extreme...it all seems like a huge task. No one from Taiko has been into my Extreme since the Roon update deal and even then it felt like the goal was to get in and get out as quick as possible. With hundreds of Extremes in the field, it feels there will be a generic upgrade to Beta but how can Taiko handle the nuanced changes that Williams, MikeL and others are getting? (Maybe I'm having Extreme upgrade envy......)
I can imagine it to appear that way. However all this “attention” involves rolling out a high volume of bugfixes and updates to the alpha, sometimes with just 1-2 days in between. This is indeed very labour intensive which is why the alpha was only installed on a small number of Extremes with their respective owners being made aware of a potential large amount of teamviewer sessions. All of these updates will be incorporated into the beta. The version which Steve reported on above will be the beta release. Wilson and Edward are working on the manuals and an installer which should minimize rollout time right now. Also of paramount importance is the incorporation of an automated update procedure which will allow users to apply updates themselves by pressing a button as indeed by now it would take several weeks for us to manually apply an update to all Extremes.
