Kaffelogic Studio

This is the beta release of v4.2.11. All you keen beta testers are encouraged to download and install it now.

The most important new feature is automatic backup of your memory stick. Every time you plug your memory stick in to your laptop while Studio is open, it automatically scans the memory stick and backs up any new or changed profiles or logs. The backups can easily be found in the 'Tools' menu. This is immensely useful if your memory stick needs reformatting or replacement: you can restore the files on it very quickly.

The other new feature is the ability to load and save temperature conversion envelopes as separate files. This makes envelope management so much easier if you are doing a lot of importing and exporting to other roasters.

There are also some minor improvements and obscure bug fixes.

Nano 7 Firmware
This is the beta release of v7.5.0. It has been extensively tested already, so if you are keen to give it a go, please download and install on your roaster now.

The new feature in this release is the ability to manually set the ambient temperature. Do this by entering 'manual mode', pressing profile and menu buttons at the same time. The menu button then lets you see and alter the ambient temperature setting. Return to 'auto mode' by pressing profile and menu buttons at the same time again.

Why would you want to set the ambient temperature? It doesn't make a huge difference, but it does have a small effect on air speed and incorrect ambient temperature can result in subtly different roasting from the same profile and level.

The roaster determines ambient temperature from the temperature probe. This works fine if the roaster is being used in the same place it is stored, and if you leave it turned on between back-to-back roast batches. But if you take it from a warm place to a cold place, such as taking it outdoors to do a roast on a cold day, or from a cold place to a warm place, such as from an air conditioned room to an outdoor porch on a hot day, it won't get an accurate measure of the ambient air temperature. The other situation that can interfere with accurate ambient air temperature measurement is turning the roaster off then on again between back-to-back roasts. Ideally it needs to be turned off for a couple of hours to get the ambient temperature right.

So, if you need the level of precision that comes from correct ambient temperature measurement, you can verify the ambient air temperature with a thermometer, and then enter the temperature reading before starting the roast batch.

Apart from that new feature, the firmware has been modified to be '7e ready' in the way it displays when it has a 220V capable element installed and there are a couple of other very minor obscure improvements.

We have just released a further beta version of Kaffelogic Studio. This is version 4.2.11.1 and it contains a small improvement to thread management which means that Studio now shuts down faster when you quit. This has the potential to get you to your next cup of coffee 0.5 seconds faster when you knock off for the day ;) . Not a big deal for the user, but if you are a beta tester we would appreciate you installing this version and giving it a whirl. We are pretty confident that this version is a stable release candidate and we plan to release it within one week, so if it does give you any trouble please promptly post in the Comments, questions and issues forum.

Thanks for being a beta tester.

Download version 4.2.11.1 from our beta site.
