Hello Probe Basic users,

We will be rolling out some big changes in Probe Basic in the next few days, here is what you need to know!

1- Probe Basic repository will be changing to "stable" and "develop"  versions.  Currently users who installed via the apt install method are pulling from the devlop branch.  You will notice after your next apt update that the opening screen is changed to the status page where you will find a message stating: Important read with action required.  

To remain on the stable branch you will need to follow these instructions. There are now also instructions at the link below with images for easier following:

kcjengr.github.io/probe_basic/stable_develop_branch_change.html  


The develop branch will be getting a heavily changed update which will require significant config file changes.  All of the subroutines will need to be used from the supplied sim subroutine folder along with the var file which now contains many added parameters that will store the probing, tool setting, coolant cannon user parameters.  This was done to be able to call and access user entered parameters during remap sub calls.  The previous method used will NO LONGER BE VALID so if you have modified subroutines you will need to adapt them to the new subroutines format.

The YAML file will also need to be copied over to your configs folder and the new user settings added to the yaml can be set per your ui instance and desired settings to determine how things are displayed.  

The current develop repository will be receiving the updated probe basic changes on Tuesday June 4th at 1pm EST.  Users not ready to test the development branch are urged to update their apt repository source list to continue using probe basic without interuption.  This will take no longer than a minute or two and has been well documented in the link above.

We are excited for this new two branch system which will allow users to switch between versions for testing and to have a look around the new developments and to allow us who are making the changes the ability to easily test on our machines.

Please post here if you have issues or questions regarding these new changes!

Thanks and Best Regards,

Chris

merging will take longer than anticipated for this so stay tuned for an update when merge has been completed for the latest development version!

Thanks for your patience!

Made this a sticky so it remains at the top for now, let me know if that is OK.
Thank you and your team for all the hard work.

yeah i agree completely, having a fall back version if an issue pops up on a production machine or changes not ready to be dealt with will be nice. i completely understand, i bide my time on my own machines often for upgrades.  and the upgrade does some awesome things!  :)

Hey all, Apologies for any frustrations, we had a bug sneak by that some of you may have experienced, an error traceback popping up.. that was from a update we thought we had resolved but it needs some more work. we have reverted a few things to get everything back to normal running, the develop and stable branches are both back up and running and the instructions to swap between both have been updated as of a few minutes ago, we discovred it requires a couple more lines to uninstall and then reinstall after changing the source list for the desired repository, but the instructions are up, simple and very clear on how to bounce between versions!

Thank you for your patience and underdstanding!
