    Knomax reacted to Netduma Luke in Announcement: DumaOS Development Milestone 1.3   
    About two years ago we made the biggest decision in our company’s history. We knew we had the best router software on the market, but we were not developing at the speed we wanted to.
    Every time we made a change, we were forced to repeat the same steps each time. Not to mention, a single change risked breaking other features.
    Netduma Dev Team c. 2016
    We pulled the trigger. We decided to start-over again, taking all the lessons from our launch to design an entirely new firmware. We made DumaOS, the router operating system for your home.
    DumaOS gives us the foundations to develop new features, which we call ‘R-Apps’ (‘Router Apps’), at incredible speed. And we will be doing this from now on in a series of Development Milestones. Each Milestone will bring more functionality to your DumaOS-powered router, solving the real problems you face online.
    Netduma Dev Team - Present Day
    Before we go any further, some important rules:
    Predicting software development is tricky, sometimes things go much faster than you expect, sometimes they go slower.  So until we are certain, the ETA of a milestone will always be ‘Whenever it’s ready’. The contents of a Milestone could change. We might need to defer some of it to a future Milestone, or we might be able to squeeze in some extras. Milestones may not always roll out to every DumaOS powered router at the same time or with the same contents. With the housekeeping out of the way, let’s get onto the fun bit:
    Milestone 1.3

    Milestone 1.3 is the first publicly announced Milestone for DumaOS. It brings cutting-edge new technology, as well as old favourites, to your DumaOS powered router, enabling you to take even more control over your network.
    Ping Assist v2

    Ping Assist is back, and it’s better than ever. Ping Assist lets low ping hosts to connect to you even if they are outside your Geo-Filter limit, helping you to quickly find high quality, low ping games.
    DumaOS Ping Assist is a big step up on the original Netduma R1 Ping Assist - we have rewritten the whole feature to be far more effective at quickly detecting pings – meaning you can find the best hosts on the planet much faster than before. The results are truly incredible, especially in games like Black Ops 4, Fornite, PUBG, Overwatch, FIFA 19 and many others.
    Hybrid VPN

    Another return of an old favourite. Hybrid VPN lets you apply your VPN to your entire network and also lets you choose the devices and applications you want to put through your VPN using DumaOS Deep Packet Inspection.
    This gives you so much more flexibility than a standard VPN, allowing you to keep the vulnerable areas of your network private and secure without affecting the devices that don't need a VPN. Hybrid VPN works with any VPN provider that uses OpenVPN (almost all do).
    Advanced Ping Stats

    There’s a new buzzword in town: Server Tickrate. This is the number of updates a game server makes per second. If your game runs at 60 frames per second, you ideally want a Tickrate at 60Hz (60 updates per second).
    Knowing the importance of this metric to our users, we have created Advanced Ping Stats. You can now see the Server (Host) Tickrate and Receive Rate, as well as your own Client Tickrate and Send Rate. This allows you to see the quality of your game's connection in far more detail than ever before. You can also pin to your DumaOS Dashboard for quick reference in-game.
    This is just the beginning for this feature. Now we are capturing server metrics we can do some cool things to give you an edge. Look out for more in future Milestones.
    Device Manager Enhancements

    The DumaOS Device Manager shows every device on your Network and you can now view this as a sortable table, to give you easier administration.
    We Need You!

    Milestone 1.3 is has been driven by user feedback. So if you have any ideas or suggestions for suggestions, let us know on the forum.

    Knomax reacted to Mr Crowley in R1 DumaOS Briefly Delayed   
    I am way past being disappointed over this. It seemed ridiculous years ago. I am at the point where I am an owner of the R1 and I like the router as it has done everything that was promised.
     
    Now I am following this story as it's a text book case study of what not to do in the way of customer communications. Some distinctions should have been made by Netduma all along, and they would have not had near the problems with this community as they are having now.
     
    1. Make the correct distinction between patches/firmware and Operating Systems
    -Most companies release patches/firmware for consumer networking equipment for a couple of years and then stop (unless a critical exploit patch is needed)
    -Most OS's are not free and shouldn't be expected free. Maybe they should have said there would be a fee to upgrade when it is available, that would have at least given a value to developing the new OS and set the expectation that this isn't OWED to the consumer.
     
    2. Communicate the truth where and when you can, as soon as you legally can
    -Every major problem with gaming companies and the fanbase, usually stems from the company trying to hide negative truths. The software isn't ready, it's not as good as we thought, there's legal delays, logistical issues, hardware limitations.
    -A company as small as Netduma trying to pull off what they are doing needs to clearly state things like. "We can't develop an OS AND give many well tested firmware updates at the same time, we can't develop secret projects and develop two versions of an OS at the same time while also making well tested firmware updates for the old router"
    -All that needed to be said is: "There you have it, that's the r1, take it or leave it. We are moving forward as a SMALL tech startup". Like every other router I have ever purchased.
     
    3. Don't make promises you can't keep
    -It's seriously as simple as that. Netduma wouldn't be in this situation if they had never promised anything and simultaneously promised timelines. A few weeks back they literally promised an exact date. I think it was the first exact date ever and they missed it. The other dates were years ago. The communications then needed to go something like this: "Hey folks, something big came up, we can't talk about it, but it means development for the R1 is on hold indefinitely". Some R1 sales would have been lost in the interim, but community trust is built this way.
     
    4. Set expectations and over deliver, not the other way around.
     
    Either way, it's been an interesting ride. I love what Netduma are doing in the way of Software (What other company is trying to tackle the age old internet lag problem of gaming like this?), but they really need to hire a professional PR person going forward. The gaming community is a fickle, and sometimes very immature crowd that has a low tolerance for BS. All you have to do is be open and honest and they follow with money.

    Yeah, But to what cost? Having your hands tied behind your back, Being forced to basically lie to your whole customer base due to a NDA?
     
    OR think a little larger and team up with a good hardware manufacturer (or/stay with Mikrotik?) and release DumaOS on a beast router AND being able to run your own show without having to abide by your Netgear master. 
     
    I would rather hear that "We have tried everything in our power but we are very sorry to say that we can't make DumaOS run 100% on the current hardware.. If you want DumaOS you have to buy our upgraded router"
    instead of hearing all this last minute back compat legal nonsense.
     
    Im sure that alot of us would have accepted that (With a few exceptions of course).
    But that's not gonna happen anytime soon thanks to this awesome agreement Netduma made with Netgear.
    You honestly think that Netduma are the ones calling the shots right now?
    Im pretty sure that the reason for all this BS is a legal issue.. But definitely not a legal issue because of some "backwards capability".

    I still can't believe the amount of shade I'm seeing thrown at frustrated customers in this thread. I understand that not everybody is disappointed or upset about this, but maybe we shouldn't be so quick to belittle other paying customers who were promised something by a company, and that company ultimately failed (multiple times in relation to this SINGLE update) to deliver on its promise. I know things go wrong during development. I know things change last minute. I know a lot of stuff has to be re-planned. However, I also know that it's important to keep your customers in the loop. Make us part of the conversation.
     
    For example, I posted prior to this update thread (in the shoutbox) asking if DumaOS was still scheduled for release. Maybe a day or two later, this thread was posted. There were people in the shoutbox who still believed it was scheduled for that day. Why? Nobody said otherwise until last minute. That's not keeping us in the loop. People assume no news is good news and we all figured things were going as planned. To drop a thread like this mere hours/days prior to a scheduled release is the exact way to turn your loyal customers against you. If you want loyalty from us, be loyal to us. Tell us if you think plans are changing as soon as you know. This was clearly not what happened this time around. It's a damn shame, too.
     
    Also, to all of the people who are sitting here bashing on individuals who are like me and feeling a little burned by this, you gain nothing by blindly supporting every action a company makes. As salty as that statement sounds, it's true. People are not upset without reason here. It's not like NetDuma came back and said "Hey, guys. We've sent out an automatic update to the R1 to change the fonts we used in the UI and making the Host Filtering map smaller". Like, that would be trivial, and people who were enraged would look like idiots. No, this is a situation where the community was promised something (or at least told they were getting something), and then they were told they weren't getting it... last minute. They have every right to be mad. Are some of them taking it too far? Maybe. Does that make their frustration invalid? No. Imagine you were promised a raise a work, so you were patient and waited until the day was nearly upon you... then your boss comes in and is like "Nah. We gave it to Netgear instead."

    I find this a bit depressing.  There is no way that you guys found out about this yesterday or when the clock struck midnight.  I am sure you and the company were aware at least a few days if not longer and kept it quiet.  Why not announce the delay as soon as you were aware of it?  It is not the end of the world to wait a few more weeks but delay itself is cryptic and might not be true.  There is a pattern that is emerging and I just don't see it being a good thing.  Fingers crossed that it doesn't take longer than what you have speculated.  Good luck.
     
    I just hope gamer's and your customers in general don't start seeing NetDuma like they do EA and the way Battlefront 2 was shunned.

    imagine a customer wasnt enough impressed with the current software (1.x) to buy the r1, but saw ads from netduma about duma os coming fall 2016 and bought the r1 because duma os convinced him and netduma said it will come fall 2016. what do you want to tell that guy? how can you still defend netduma?

    As an R1 user for many years, I saw this coming. The Silence was deafening. 
    I don't agree with the excuse, since many hardware companies are providing firmware updates that can't be rolled back.
    Oppo and Asus are two such companies. 
     
    I also find it hard to believe that you waited until the last day before release to ask the legal department about backwards compatibility or that your legal department waited til the last day before telling you that it needed backwards compatibility.
    I have the feeling that Iain is having a terrible time trying to get the under-powered R1 hardware to work well with DUMAOS. 
     
    I'm not holding my breath for your new timetable either. 
     
    There are several companies providing very good routers with fq-codel QOS, but without the Geo-Filter of the R1.
    Most gamers don't even need the Geo-filter since they live so close to dedicated servers. They just need a powerful router with good QOS. 
     
    Time will tell if these continued delays hurt Netduma or not. 
     
    EDIT: removed 'XR500 being made by Asus' comment. XR500 is a Netgear product.
