ANNOUNCEMENT: The Future of DumaOS: Version 3.0

Recommended Posts

Is this required in order for it to work with your broadband provider?

Yes. And for this reason I have to use a separate router for Logging into PPPoE using Username/ password/ service name, and then to Netduma router using DHCP.

Maybe. We might be able to do this in future, but it would be a major overhaul to Hybrid-VPN. It won't be in DumaOS 3.0.

Thanks for the clarification.

I've never heard of that before, I'll ask the devs to look into it.

Actually it's a feature in almost all the routers, but is either under advanced settings, or is marked as optional. Even while setting up a PPPoE dialer on a PC, there is an option for service name.

I would say the refinements will fix most of the issues, whether or not Netgear decide to take on all of the features but lets face it - why wouldn't they?!  So although it's the longer method of patching bugs it should be more sustainable in the future and produce less bugs hopefully. Totally understand if you're too fedup by it, that why we brought out the insider program to try and be more transparent with what we're up to.

Hi Fraser,

As someone who has recently bought an XR300, I am really disappointed as the latest firmware is a big mess. Huge (if not the biggest selling point of DumaOS powered routers) router features like High Priority gaming traffic detection are completely broken at the moment as you have seen from the posts in the netgear support section. Is there Going to be a real effort into really resolving these issues before the DumaOS 3.0 release comes out? As my XR300 right now is completely useless without the high priority traffic detection working, I would really appreciate an honest answer on the reality of the matter as I can still return my newly bought XR300 and get my money back.

I honestly couldn't say whether there will be another firmware release prior to 3.0. I've let the team know about that issue today so if they confirm it then it depends, they may be able to get a hotfix out for that. Give it until end of next week until I've heard about replication of the issue and I'll have a better idea of what will happen.

Out of curiosity, is there a plan to allow people to create their own R-Apps and distribute it?

Thanks Fraser, that would be great. Please do let us know if you have any news on that one.

We have toyed with the idea, if we did allow something like that then it wouldn't be for awhile as we still have a lot of ideas for features we want to include ourselves.

I understand the problems, but some punctuation and pauses would not be bad 😅

Make a new topic regarding your issues, with some more specifics e.g. what ping you're getting and also what QoS/Geo-Filter settings you're using and we can help out.

@Netduma Team

To everybody that's talking about bugs in this thread: i've removed your posts. If you want to know the status of specific bugs, i'd appreciate it if you posted in the correct section of the forum, for example the DumaOS on Netgear Nighthawk section. I appreciate that it may feel like we aren't listening, but we have received the message, we read all of your posts, and we are committed to fixing any bugs that come up.

Being rude and arguing with people won't get the bugs fixed any faster.

3.0 will contain many bug fixes alongside the new features. It's the culmination of many months of work for us. We want to get it to users ASAP, but we also know that users will be very disappointed if it's full of bugs, which is why we're giving plenty of time to testing.

We made that trailer to show off at CES, and I think we will release it publicly in the run up to the 3.0 release. We don't want to show off the trailer until 3.0 is almost ready, because we don't want people to get excited and then have to wait to try out our new features.

@Netduma Alex Why not that's what a trailer/teaser video is about, to get excited about what is coming and to get a idea as well what to expect.

We gonna have to wait anyway for 3.0.

As my understanding from the video DumaOs 3.0 is coming for the XR700 as well ?

We're going to enter the closed beta phase VERY soon, so I think we'll release the trailer once that's done.

I personally don't think anything I was saying was rude, nor was I arguing, nor asking for bugs to be fixed faster. I'm not intending for it to come across that way, as much as it annoys me you're censoring a forum.

I was simply asking for more communication than just the standard response everyone seems to be getting lately. IMO that's not adequate when we have no real timeline nor confirmation on issues. Surely you must have an internal tool you're using to keep track of issues that have been fixed/reported?
It's fair enough that you don't want to allude to users major features of upcoming software. That's understandable. But not being able to tell us if x bug has been fixed as one of the many y bugs fixed in z version of upcoming software? That just seems like a general lack of desire to communicate properly to your users if you ask me, or some other reason I'm not aware of because, again, it hasn't been told to us.

There's no read receipts on forum posts. I don't know what you do and don't see, and while I can appreciate, again, where you guys stand, you have to appreciate that as a prosumer paying what IS a premium for a product marketed at my segment, I need something more than ISP-level responses from a hardware vendor that packs this much supposed featureset into a package. Anyone can say they've read and acknowledged a post, but for the end user that's not justified until they either know a fix for their issue is upcoming, or has been fixed.

Perhaps one way to achieve this is to enable better communication of your DumaOS insiders testing upcoming releases. Short of yourselves acknowledging it, it's the only way I personally see more adequate communication between your customers and yourselves getting anywhere positive.

At the end of the day, I don't think it's too much to ask for you to tell someone who's having x problem that, yes, it's been fixed in an upcoming release or, no we weren't aware of that but here's something to show your issue is worth more to us than my response to you on this forum. Users will cry and complain all they want if a fix for an issue they have is available but inaccessible to them yet (i.e as part of an upcoming patch) but they don't have a leg to stand on when you, rightfully, are testing your software to be as stable as possible OR if that fix is confirmed by someone testing said software, i.e an Insider.

Just my input.
