Firmware Github Branch Useage - READ FIRST

Postby johnoly99 » Wed Nov 23, 2016 11:49 am

Hey guys. Just a post to let you know we're posting stuff on github to a few branches for firmware fixes/updates/bug hunting etc... For everyones sanity, here's what they are and when to use them

Master:
This branch is what we could consider "stable" and is the officially supported firmware. This means if you are having a problem, we can offer help via tickets/emails etc... It is what we want everyone to use.

Dev:
This is where we are testing fixes/features/bug workarounds etc. This is NOT considered stable, and we would not want anyone using it unless they feel comfortable considering themselves a "beta tester" kind of person. There will be times that someone in support may ask you to try this branch for help in solving your issues, but unless someone from SeeMeCNC DIRECTLY tells you to use this branch, please stay on the master branch. The reason for this is to eliminate variables in troubleshooting anything.

Unstable:
You read it right. It says UNSTABLE. This is our 'playground' that has bad stuff in it. Not necessarily, but for all intents and purposes, it's full of smoke and mirrors and things that will break your printer ;) If you use this branch, there is absolutely no support. Please "enter at your own risk"
