I just logged into my cameras and received notice on each camera that there is a firmware upgrade required. There is no information as to what was upgraded, and there is an option to upgrade later. The upgrade is from the current version: 1.00_build_9 to the latest version: 1.02_build_3'.
Follow the instructions carefully. You can only upgrade from the router or modem where the cameras are located, no remote upgrade permitted. I cannot access one camera that I have in another location at all until I am physically at that location, which is a real bummer!

Yeah, I just saw that today too. Good thing I didn't mount my "backyard" camera yet as I plan on installing it under the easel on my 2nd story roof!

And I too would like to know what's new with the new firmware!

RELEASE NOTES people!!!  Angry

I called DLink tech support, and was told to ignore the upgrade request?Huh? I asked what the upgrade was for and they did not know?Huh? I also asked why I cannot access my remote camera, and they did not know (something with their server)Huh?? I am supposed to get a call back....yea right!!!!!

Well I did the upgrade anyway, and although it was not in the instructions, I unplugged the other cameras while upgrading (just as I recommend unplugging all cameras when installing a new one...even other brands!), and kepy each unplugged until all were upgraded. The upgrade on each camera went flawlessly, and I see a noticeable difference in how each boots up in mydlink.com.  Funny thing, the firmware upgrade had a date of 12/2010....I wonder what took do long to deploy it to us?Huh?
Now if I could only get Firefox to zoom in......

Anyone else had their config page switch to french after the upgrade? It's a bug or at least they provided me the wrong firmware language upgrade from mydlink. Not sure how to return it to english now!

Re-install and choose ENGLISH.

Did the firmware upgrade impact the sound quality (or lack thereof) on the DCS-932L?

Yes, it happened to me, back in April when I first discovered this upgrade lurking on the support site.
A reboot of the web cam fixed the language problem and made it revert to English.

See the original upgrade thread here http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=38090.0

Are you sure you wrote this correctly?  Builds incrementally increase in number, so v1.00_build_9 should be more recent than v1.00_build3 (not the other way around).

One thing i did notice about new firmware is in the Mail>Time Schedule> Motion Detection.  You can now E-mail attached with 6 frames (3 frames before and 3 frames after motion frame). Or E-mail motion frame immediately

Yes.

Sorry, I misread the version numbers in your post.  1.00b9 -> 1.02b3 (it must be too early here. . . I thought I read 1.00b9 -> 1.00b3).

I'm somewhat surprised there's no version history describing the changes.

Standard practice is to accompany the new version with release notes that incorporate a Change Log.  Not doing this very sub-standard....makes me think twice about the rest of their sw development practices....
Sigh, so simple a caveman can do it...too bad we haven't prgressed that far...."D-Link - making the simple hard again...."

True, but to their credit, I own multiple D-Link devices (i.e. non-camera) and, for the most part, they all have formal change logs associated with each firmware release.  I would like to see a formal beta sub-forum for firmware updates and change logs for the DCS series (similar to some of the other product lines in this forum).
