    When will the anti-jitter anti-spike features be implemented in the DumaOS? Currently they aren't in the beta build.

    sidestep6 got a reaction from Killhippie in NEW FIRMWARE OUT (Netduma R1): DumaOS Development Milestone 1.3   
    Yes I understand Netduma can't maintain or handle deadlines of any kind you guys as a company have proven that many times. But still over 3 years since that blog post and the endless mentions of "it will be included with the new DumaOS" and teasing from you about how great those features are compared to current industry alternatives on here and Twitter make it frustrating when those kinds of features aren't base features or core to this new OS especially when they would have a greater affect on a players connection than the majority of the features included.
    It would be nice to know how many years we'll have to wait for those features to be included so we know when upgrading will actually be worth it. Although considering Netduma's usage of the word "soon" and the fact that the features aren't in the beta build 2 years minimum is probably accurate.

    sidestep6 got a reaction from Find_the_Door in R1 DumaOS Briefly Delayed   
    It makes sense for one scenario. If R1 users found out the Anti-Jitter/Anti-Spike features aren't in the new DumaOS build for the R1 then all they really have is a copy of what is on the XR500 which from what others have posted on here has quite a few annoying bugs which really wouldn't be worth the hassle if those feature still weren't in. So those R1 users would likely want to downgrade back to what they were running previously to avoid the current bugs in the DumaOS. So by delaying and making sure it's possible to downgrade those users aren't left stuck with R1 they no longer want to use because the new DumaOS is lesser than then what is currently on their R1s. 
     
    Reposting something I mentioned before. Netduma staff, you really need to higher a PR rep with more up to date or current experience. This thread should have been locked immediately and pinned after posting.

    I think the truth is more along the lines of netgear hasn’t sold enough routers yet to make back their investment in netduma. They don’t want people to buy the cheaper netduma with the same software. Also they are hoping we will buy one of their r500s, which we are unlikely to do if we have the upgrade. So I believe we will get the upgrade when netgear accounts department say so.

    Few months minimum, although it's more likely a few years to give everyone time to forget and for them to release a new piece of hardware with their track record.
     
    If someone can find the documentation on their site or these forums that shows that the version of the router OS that is currently on the R1 is backwards compatible, meaning we can downgrade to earlier versions like 1.02.* please link it. Otherwise I find it hard to believe this as a useful excuse to use for delaying. I say useful because it would have saved them a lot more grief if they had just said what everyone in their community has grown accustomed to, "we're sorry we could not make another deadline we set for ourselves" that is believable as it has happened frequently with Netduma.
     
    At this point I don't know what they are trying to save as most of their community no longer believes them. They'd make more money and get almost zero negative PR if they just came out and said the original hardware couldn't fully support DumaOS and made everyone buy the XR500 or some other piece of new hardware.

    I love your videos Sim but you already have their new router with DumaOS.  Your wait is over for the DumaOS.  For the rest of us or for me at least this delay does not add any fun to the mix.  2016 it was supposed to be released it never did, 2017 was supposed to have public Beta of the DumaOS it never happened.  April 17th 2018 the day its suppose to release its delayed because they didn't talk  to their lawyers ahead of time....I don't buy it.  I respect where you stand on this but your quick defense of them and lack of accountability for the company is disheartening.

    Based on previous announcements and track record it's not a big assumption, it has been delayed before it will likely be delayed again. It's odd though they make new announcement posts and string people along by leaving it open for people to post in instead of just making a new one locking it and sticking it to the top so it's the most recent news from the development team. It's okay to say you are behind or even really far behind schedule, but posting things like "All will make sense over the next month or so. Believe me its awesome! & I hope you'll agree worth the wait" and "Exciting times!" isn't something a developer should be saying prior to an unknown release of a piece of software nor should they be said when nothing is shown to back it up as it leaves it up to the reader's imagination to run with it and that isn't wise. Whether it is intentional hype or unintentional it is setting yourself up for negative feedback and in some ways disappointment because there is no way you'll get all the bugs. I mean the 1.03.6 version still has bugs in it but people are still using it.

    A long awaited update on DumaOS
     
    We have made a lot of progress over the past few weeks. The OS is currently being beta tested by more of our UK based users and their feedback has been great. Thanks to their testing we have been able to make the OS very stable. This is a big milestone. DumaOS is such a big undertaking so getting to this point, where we know the firmware is solid, is a very good feeling.
     
    Now we have stability we can shift our focus to usability. This means making things as easy as possible to use and much more 'plug and play' than the current R1 firmware. For example, we have developed an 'Auto Congestion Control' feature, which automatically applies Anti-flood and Hyper Traffic whenever you are gaming (this can be turned off by the more experienced users who prefer to manually configure things).
     
    Once usability is in place we can then widen the beta to more users. So this means we will be expanding the beta pool soon through the Coal Mine. Open Beta should then follow not long afterwards. We've deliberately not given exact dates here - it'll be ready when it's ready!
     
    After usability comes the fun stuff, when we can create many new features that we have in our Development Roadmap. We will continue to roll these out on a regular basis even after DumaOS is fully launched, meaning your router will just keep getting better and better.
     
    Finally we just want to say thank you for all your support and patience. We realise it's frustrating when we don't send out status updates so we're going to make sure we do more to keep you guys in the loop. What we will say is be assured we are working as hard as we can to get DumaOS ready. It's a big step up for our company so we want it out there as much as you do. But only when it's ready!
     
    Thank you for your understanding,
     
    The Netduma Team
