Hi DanielSan,


Did you convert your .NET MF app from a NETMF 4.1 app to a NETMF 4.2 app (by changing the target framework option in Project Properties)?

Chris


Thanks for your help
Regards

Hi Did anyone had luck with this new firmware and OneWire? I want to measure the temperature via the DS18B20 OneWire temperature sensor, but I really can't get the OneWire to run. In the release notes it says "OneWire is provided through a community development effort." - What does that mean?

Hello out there! :) I have an question to the differences between 4.1.0 (update 6) and 4.2.0 (update 2): Are the DHCP- and Ethernet-cable-bugs also resolved ind the v4.2.0 or only in the older one? I have my Netduino next to me and want to update it and have to choose what Version i should take. I think the extra RAM would be a really great thing, but if there are still the DHCP-Problems (I have to admit, the last time i worked With my netduino was 4 months ago...) i probalby would rather go for the 4.1.0 Thanks for your help! Greets, Markus

Hi Markus, Netduino Plus 2 has some settings which help out with DHCP issues. The larger bug fix for that appears to be in .NET MF 4.3, which should be in beta very soon. Chris

I just have a Netduino Plus (not 2) ;)
So for firmware-update, could u give me a hint for which Version I should go? v4.2 or v4.1?

v4.1 says

With this firmware, you will have the following resources available for your 
code:
 64KB Flash
 28KB+ RAM

 This firmware includes the following 
updates:
 1. Enhanced Parallels, VMWare, and VirtualBox compatibility
 2. 
Garbage collection 'status messages' updated
 3. Visual Studio debugger 
should connect to Netduino easier during deployment (on non-virtual 
machines)
 4. Bugfixes: DHCP should now work properly on more/all routers
 
5. Bugfixes: Network cables can now be connected after board is powered up
 
6. Bugfixes: SerialPort.DataReceived event should now fire properly
 7. 
Bugfixes: SerialPort.Read() timeout now implemented properly
 8. Bugfixes: 
Misc. SPI bugfixes

and v4.2 says

With this firmware, you will have the following resources available for your 
code:
 64KB Flash
 42KB+ RAM (50% more RAM than 4.1.0.6)

 This 
firmware includes the following update:
 1. PWM bugfix (period/frequency now 
set correctly)

 This firmware also includes the following prior 
updates:
 1. 50% more RAM: 42KB (4.2.0.0) vs. 28KB (4.1.0.6)
 2. Visual 
Basic is now a supported language for .NET MF
 3. New core AnalogInput and 
PWM classes; backwards-compatible classes available via add-on assemblies.
 
4. New WinUSB drivers (to remedy BSOD issues in 4.2 beta)
 5. Garbage 
collector now fully collects old objects
 6. See netmf.codeplex.com for full 
details of all bugfixes

So my main question is: Does the v4.2 also contain the bugfixes of v4.1 like "Network cables can now be connected after board is powered up"? =)


Thanks for your help.

Hi Markus, Generally speaking, v4.2 should include the bug fixes from v4.1.0.6. We've found some additional bugs around network cable connection time in NETMF since then. We're hoping that the last one was squashed with NETMF 4.3 (via the upgraded lwIP network stack). Chris

Ok great, that was all I wanted to hear. I think tonight my N+ has a date with a new firmware :) Thanks, Markus

Ok, so it seems I may have broken something. After flashing my N+, I cannot connect to it with MFDeploy. It does not show up in the USB list. Further investigation shows the root cause is that the USB driver is not correctly installed. When I look in device manager, it shows Ports AT91 USB to Serial Converter (COM32) There is a warning icon on the device, and the status is "The device cannot start (Code 10)" If I try to set the Driver to the one installed with the SDK (C:\Program Files (x86)\Secret Labs\Netduino SDK\Drivers) it says: "The folder you specified doesn't contain a compatible driver for your device. If the folder contains a driver, make sure it is designed to work with Windows for x64-based systems." In the folder is the following: amd64 [folder] x86 [folder] mfusb_netduino.cat MFUSB_Netduino.cat Please help. Dave

Hi strent,

An update with OneWire will be published in mid-December. Hopefully .NET MF 4.3 will be ready to go too. It'll be a big month for firmware updates.

Hi ND Stuff, this update is just what I was looking for: everything I need works great and UDP broadcast is awesome! Just a question: can I deploy by TCP/IP on ND+1?

Thanks for testing out the update. Woot.

Netduino Plus 1 doesn't support TCP deployment. We are looking at ways to add this to Netduino Plus 2 in a software update.

I'm using this version in production environment. It's a pity I can't update clients's systems from remote do you know of a way to update a ND+ via serial from another ND+?

Depending on how happy MFDeployEngine is with the latency, you could switch a Netduino Plus's deployment port to one of the COM ports, tunnel TCP traffic to another Netduino Plus, and then send/receive that data via UART between the two boards.

Remote update is something we can work on with the new hardware, since we have extra flash and RAM.

Bah! Silly me -- it's plastered everywhere. Sorry for not looking harder! Now, to figure out some other issues!

Note: If your running the 4.2 or later firmware, you need to hold down the onboard button while you plug in the USB to put your device into bootloader mode.

Running Windows 8 and updating my Plus from 4.1 to 4.2. I managed to get through all the steps in about 15 minutes. Had MFDeploy showing me the new firmware. I was so happy with myself. I then went to deploy my program from VS to the netduino, and that's when the fun started. The deploy started and then was hanging. To make a long story (2 hours) short, I managed to get at least 75% of the errors in this thread as I went through debugging the problem. I'm finally able to deploy. A few hints... Rebooting my PC between device manager changes made a huge difference. Things that wouldn't work magically did after a reboot (obviously since this is Windows). And when unplugging the netduino and plugging it back in, I found i needed at least a 10s pause, otherwise it would show up as an unrecognized device. This led me to perform all sorts of unneeded steps. So throw in some reboots, and count to 10, slowly.
