Skylark 5.3 for Dreamcatcher 3 (Ku-band) is up on archive
This is a required update for continued reception.
This has some breaking changes so please read this before upgrading:
The release changes all Outernet to Othernet. This means the name of the access point is now “othernet”. The ssh and webui login is also now othernet/othernet. There has also been a change in the way network configuration is stored. Both of these changes require a configuration reset. So if you burn this release over an older release, you MUST do a “Reset Configuration” from the LCD at first boot, otherwise nothing will work. Configuration reset implies the DC3 will reboot into default configuration - Access point mode - and you will have to reconfigure the Wifi station settings and any other settings you might have changed.
The display blanking/unblanking system has been redone. It appears to work as intended now.
The audio streaming system has also been redone and should work much better now.
IMPORTANT: the wire-protocol is changing with this release. The beam will be switched over to the new protocol at approximately 17:00 UTC on 6th September (about 24 hours from the posting-time of this post). Before that time, release 5.3 will not be able to receive packets. After that time, any release earlier than 5.3 will not be able to receive the new protocol packets.
Please report problems/bugs etc in this thread.
Any residual references to “outernet” (the old name) also count as bugs.
