    Posted: 05 Sep 2012 at 11:03am
With final preparations underway for the 2012 season I know a lot of you are wondering if there will be a new Aurora version this year.  This is a quick update to let you know what to expect for 2012:

The good news:
We have completed an E1.31 update/patch for Aurora 1.  Level 1 beta testing on the update has completed, and the update is presently in level 2 beta testing.  If all goes well, this Aurora E1.31/DMX update will be ready for public release later this month or in early October.  This will be a free update/patch for all paid license users of Aurora 1.

Other news:
We've been very busy working on the next version of Aurora (Aurora 2), but it will not be ready for release in time for the 2012 season.  At this moment, it looks like Aurora 2 will be a 2013 release.

Just an update...

The E1.31 beta is still in level 2 testing.  We had a few hiccups with transitioning new beta testers into the world of adapter cables, etc. which slowed us down a little, but we are back on track now.  In the process we captured a good deal of documentation that will make the transition easier for y'all.  If all continues well then this release will be on just after 10/1.

Another update...

We've hit a few issues in testing which prevented a 10/1 release.  These should be minor and hopefully will not cause too many delays.  Stay tuned.

We are experiencing a growing number of hardware related issues in testing.  Although these do not directly impact Aurora itself, they do impact the supportability of the update at this point in time.  Since it is mid-October, it is best not to expect an official release this year (it might still happen, but it does not look promising at this time). 

Those interested in helping beta test what we do have may PM me for more information.

The interest in beta testing is a bit larger than I anticipated.  The most efficient way to handle the testing is going to be to break the test schedule into multiple tests according to hardware configuration.  I have the necessary information from several of you; I am still waiting for others.  For the record, this is the information I need via PM for assigning you to a beta group:

1) What controllers do you have (e.g. ACx16, Firefli, Lynx Express, etc.).  Be specific (include model numbers)

2) What DMX fixtures (if any) do you have?

3) What E1.31 adapter do you have (e.g. DR4, D4, etc.).  Be specific.

4) What OS are you running (e.g. Windows 7, Vista, XP) and what edition (e.g. Home, Professional, Ultimate, Media Center)?  32 or 64 bit?  Be specific.

We do not have an official release date at this time.  While I do anticipate with 99% confidence that it will be completed this year, it is still too early to make any official announcement and/or guarantee.

Hi Guys,
 
I am just curious as to how you are coming along?  Its now May and I need to know if I need to start looking for another program.  I would love to stay with aurora but I dont want to wait till Sept to find out that I should have been reprogramming my sequences now with a new program.
 
Is there anything I can do to help test?
 
Thanks
steve

If you are interested in becoming a Level II beta tester, PM Michael directly.
