New Thermostat Firmware Version 204.3(?)

Options
Hello folks,

it seems that they are rolling out a new firmware version for their Thermostat.
Mine now shows this “204.3”.
Sounds like similiar to the latest for TRVs firmware version (204.1).

Any clues about upcoming changes with this release?

And, I must repeat, Tado, PLEASE, CHANGELOGS!

    Since buying my setup 6 weeks or so ago, my Wired Room Thermostats updated themselves to 204.3 within 24 hours of fitting, but the one Wireless Room Thermostat I have remains on 204.1 as are all the TRVs. All of them were something like 84.1 (can't remember exactly) when they were installed.

    The obvious possible change is the locally stored schedule. Unplugging the Bridge appeared to make no difference to the schedule, suggesting that local storage is now a thing, but I only tried once as its too warm to have the heating on just to check the schedule. They did say locally stored schedules is a slow roll-out (sensible).

    Tado, like Ring and others, aren't going to do changelogs unless theres a change of policy at boardroom level, which is unlikely.

    This request has been made many times before.
    I see no chance of tado° making the changelog available to users tbh.

    @samd it is odd how sometimes the Firmware is different between identical devices. I guess it must be done across Serial Number batches.

    Some manufacturers ship updates to a limited number of devices, and if there are no problems, they roll them out to the rest of the users.

    I don't think Tado do as I have identical devices with different firmware on the same account, and they've been different for a couple of weeks.

    It was because the two products with the same firmware have sequential serial numbers, and the one with different firmware is miles away, that I assumed its done by serial numbers.

    As far as I'm concerned, tado° may not update all devices at the same time - at least when I've asked this question in the past, I've been told it's to ensure that if the latest firmware is faulty, it doesn't affect all users / devices.

    There is a bug in the tado° app (already reported) where devices shown in the app may have a different firmware number to one in the HomeKit tab / Apple Home app. The workaround is to turn off the bridge so that the devices appear offline and then reconnect. The firmware information will then be reconciled between the systems.
