Ok. I’ll be the first to respond. Here are 3 issues I’ve encountered so far.

1st, the menu bar (aka burger menu) disappears after entering and exiting the menus a few times, this happens on both the 1F and remote laptop (source of screencaps).

2nd, the background in the “G-code” scroll area is extremely distracting and makes plenty of the G-code non-readable to us mere ocular challenged folk.

and lastly, but definitely the most bothersome, after loosing the “menu” bar, the only method to shutdown/restart is via a looooong power button hold, or killing the main power, which, even after being able to save some settings, on restart reverts to the “initial startup” screen with none of the previous items populated. I didn’t make a video of it but will if the devs need it.

Thanks, Eric

Definitely the exact same issue here re the Hamburger menu disappearing, but for me I have NOT found a way to get it back. My OneFinity screen has stopped working, so I can’t confirm it there, but remotely, the menu does NOT return after a long press shutdown and reboot.

EDIT: After fixing my screen (changing power supply), and rebooting, the menu comes back on the OneFinity screen after a reboot, but disappears again after a few menu uses.

I would like to setup a samba share from my 1F with this firmware installed, but I can not seem to login successfully when I SSH to the machine. I have used bbmc as the username and both the onefinity and buildbotics passwords, but both are denied access. Is there a different password for the 2.0.0 Alpha 2 build?

I have previously used the solution below on my 1F before this beta, and it works very well. In fact it would be fantastic if this was standard on all controllers (or at least a configurable option):

I’ve not tried that, let me know what you find out

@Developers, I see we apparently have 1.3 Alpha and 2.0.0 Alpha out in parallel. Can you advise which is likely to be the next production release? I am running the 2.0.0 Alpha, but if the way ahead looks like its actually going to be the 1.3 then should I revert to it?

1.3 is the next release
