Update Please

Postby Andrew42 Tue Jul 04, 2017 10:17 pm

Nick, may I ask you to share an update with us all? I for one am not using Hideaway except occasionally because my printer does not work with HA running and I cannot configure rules. I would very much like to get back to where we were when HA2 went kaput.

In house testing of the backend hopefully starts in the next few days, assuming that goes well then it shouldn't take us long to get it plugged into something prettier.

Fingers crossed :)

Thanks. I'm not sure how to read that. Are we talking 2,4,6,8 weeks? I know that you can't put an absolute time on it but it would be nice to have a feel for what "shouldn't take us long" actually means.

Yeah I wasn't told that part, so tried to skirt around it.

I imagine it's probably about 4-6 weeks, I know they still have to do UDP on the client side, but while that's being done the work to put the rules system into the new UI can be done also.

The last time I wrote I said I would see what was what end September, sandbagging Rustic Dogs hoped-for date. We are now six months beyond that date and approaching April and other than the fact that my printer now seems to operate when my HA is running we , the users, dont seem to be much further along than we were last July. I'm looking for the day when I can run Hideaway again 100% of the time using custom rules as I used to in the "good old days" befoe H2 nosedived.

To mis-quote the late great Peter Sellers, "Can anybody give me vague promises of better thigs to come"?

Ah the good ol days :)

Finishing up the new filter system this week. Then need to add in some DNS tweaks, update driver too, but yeah not much more. So ideally that means end of the month, but as we also know, time estimates seem to come with the caveat that they can be utterly and completely wrong...

Return to “HideAway”
