Were these routers given up on?

Recommended Posts

Almost 6 months ago a staff member mentioned a big update to DumaOS would be soon. Have heard nothing since on that. Have these routers been given up on?

I wouldn't say given up on.. But one would think we should see something soon! But you also have to remember it is up to Netgear on firmware updates. They will make the last call on that.. And they also have things of there own they need to fix on there end.. Im more curious about bug repair. And also curious to see if we will see all the new features of the Duma 3.0 or some of them or none of them.. There is a lot of unknowns with this Netduma/Netgear thingy..

The R1 will probably get it first, it will be interesting to see how that router handles all the new features on such old hardware. Netgear will either take it all or some of it, or just leave it, I cant see the latter happening, but as Zippy said there are a lot of unknowns and with no feedback on Netgear hardware support from either Netgear or Netduma, nobody really knows for sure. As to release dates they can slip so the guys are being cautions and that's sensible. I'm also with Zippy on patching bugs, both Netgears ones and Netduma ones, looking back over 2019 one official release for the XR500 (2.3.2.56) was not exactly what most people were hoping for and it still had disconnection issues for some, and it seems the Netduma team may not have the resources to patch and write new firmware at the same time, as Milestone 1.3 received no major bug fixes last year which it really needed. Hopefully that will change this year, but we will just have to wait and see.

I don't know how much i'm allowed to say regarding which hardware we'll put DumaOS 3.0 on due to legal mumbo jumbo that i'm restrained by...

What I will say is that we're not dropping support for any existing hardware, and we're planning to release DumaOS 3.0 for every current DumaOS device. I can't promise it yet, but that's what we're planning on.

Even those as skeptical as myself don't believe that it is truly "given up on". It is however well beyond slow progress. For such an expensive Niche market I would've expected more regular updates and upgrades. I am sure DumaOS 3.0 will likely come to our devices - EVENTUALLY. That is the biggest question, and one that NetDuma can not answer due to Netgear. (nor would they want to give a timeline at this point anyway)

All we can go on is what they have said combined with what has happened in the past. Based on that info, I would guess we don't see this update until Q3 2020 at best. (with the R1 seeing it well before hand). But again, this is just MY opinion.

I feel ya I am not holding my breath on any of this. With the last update being back in Aug of 2019 5 months ago . it seems we may hit that 8 months that they said we would not be waiting for to get mile stone 1.4 ,and then who knows how long till duma 3.0. I'm Not sure why I made my self think netgear would do any better with someone elses OS.
