New PMC-Eight Firmware UPDATED STATUS #ExploreScientific #UniversalFirmware


Jerry Hubbell - Explore Scientific VP Engineering
 

My plans were to release to the general public the new universal version of the PMC-Eight firmware (ver 20A01) late yesterday evening. I have been delayed until today making final tweaks to the installation guide. For those that have been waiting for the new firmware, ASCOM driver, and Universal Firmware Configuration Tool (UFCT), I wanted to assure you that it will be available later today, probably within a couple of hours. I know that we have been talking about this for a couple of months now, and it has actually been under active development and testing for 6 months now so I appreciate everyone's patience. It is finally ready. I think you all will really be happy with the changes and the updated functionality.

I will be posting new messages once it is available for download on the main forum.

Thanks again for everyone's support!
