normal or normal_core_241 or normal_core_242

#1 Post by Gilles » 19 Mar 2019, 08:09

I have a sonof basic(1M).
Could you tell me where I can get the info about these 3 espeasy versions (see title) ?

The README.txt which come with the ESP_Easy_mega-20190305 doesn't explain anything about the core versions compared to the "normal" version:
The package includes:

- ESP_Easy_mega-20190305_normal_ESP8266_1M.bin
- ESP_Easy_mega-20190305_normal_core_241_ESP8266_1M.bin
- ESP_Easy_mega-20190305_normal_core_242_ESP8266_1M.bin


Extract from the README.txt file
- normal => Only Stable plugins and controllers

There is also a number of special builds:
- normal_core_241 => "Normal" using core 2.4.1, since 2.4.2 has issues with PWM
- xxx_core_260_sdk2_alpha -> core 2.6.0 alpha version (under development) using SDK 2.2.1
- xxx_core_260_sdk3_alpha -> core 2.6.0 alpha version (under development) using SDK 3.0.0-dev (under development too)
I have searched the forum, but I didn't find any clue about this.
I don't know which one to choose between normal, normal_core_241 or normal_core_242
Thanks
Gilles

30+ ESP units for production and test. Ranging from control of heating equipment, flow sensing, floor temp sensing, energy calculation, floor thermostat, water usage, to an interactive "fun box" for my grandson. Mainly Wemos D1.

Thanks for the answer.
I understand the difference between "stable" , "stable + test" and "stable + test + development". What I don't know is which bin file I can use for the sonoff(1M).

There are 3 versions for the 1M:normal, normal core 241 and normal core 242 and I don't see anywhere the explanation, except in the changelog. I would suppose that I have to use the last one (core 242) but why are the other versions part of the zip bin file. What are they used for ?

Thanks anyway
Gilles

Those with "core" in the name are special versions to test different core versions. So go with the third in your list.
ESP Easy Flasher [flash tool and wifi setup at flash time]
ESP Easy Webdumper [easy screendumping of your units]
ESP Easy Netscan [find units]

1. The default build typically uses the current ESP8266 core library. https://github.com/esp8266/Arduino/releases
2. The additional builds use previous core libraries 2.4.1 and 2.4.2.
3. There have been unexplained issues appearing in some installations. Some problems could involve the core library.
4. Therefore, if a new ESPEasy release causes unexplained problems in your installation you can switch to the different cores and check for success.
