July 2019 Update

Hey everyone, Ryan here. I wanted to give a quick update on the latest build of Arsenal. We’ve seen a number of Arsenal users anxious for the new features and/or newly supported cameras, so I thought a mini update would help.

In the last update I wrote about our newest release going to BETA users. It did, and we received some really great feedback in that process. Unfortunately, what we did see is that we still had some work to do.

A few of the new cameras were proving more difficult than anticipated, and we needed a few additional cycles of development/QA/BETA/feedback to get them where we wanted. Perhaps more importantly, we’ve had some regressions in this build (the development team has done a great job avoiding these in the past, but at some point you’re going to have them). That’s led to some new bugs that hadn’t been reported before, and a few were rather difficult to reproduce. We’re still working through a few of those bugs now (if you’re a developer and have had to deal with memory leaks before, you feel our pain).

Anyway, we’re actively working to get these last few bugs fixed and will then publish the new release ASAP. In the meantime, we are pushing out a new BETA release today or Monday. If you’d like to check out the new features, newly supported cameras, or overall improvements, shoot a note to beta@witharsenal.com. It’d also help us get more info on these last few bugs.

There have been lots of major releases on Arsenal in the last year; this one is probably the one we’re most excited about. Tons of fixes/quality-of-life-improvements. Seven new cameras. A SmartLapse mode that makes timelapses as easy as you can make them. Holy Grail timelapses. And a whole bunch more. In case you missed it, check out our last blog post for a writeup of the new release, or check out the release notes for all of the details.

In the meantime, let us know if you have any questions about the update or if you need any assistance with your Arsenal (help@witharsenal.com). Thanks again for all of the support.
