new firmware releases with core 2.5 and 2.4

#1 Post by riker1 » 06 Jan 2019, 12:21

Hi
maybe I missed this communication.
Did not find anything in WIKI

what about the new versions for core 2 4 and core 2.5?

- how to use those?
- any restrictions ?

Can I just deploy them onto the boards?

Thanks thomas

Known issues with the core 2.5.0:
- Loopcount is lower than with core 2.4.x
- The nightly builds are based on the 'stage' branch of the core libraries, so they may change on every nightly build
- WiFi seems more stable though
- Binaries built with core 2.5.0 are bigger. (minimal build will not fit in the free size for 2-step OTA)
- PWM stuff is the same as with core 2.4.2, so if needed, use core 2.4.1
- Memory usage is more than with core 2.4.2
