new firmware dcs932l_v102_build_3.bin
« on: November 19, 2011, 01:53:46 PM »

Yesterday when I went to MyDlink (booted in Lion) I got a message that I should download new firmware. The link led me to the file: dcs932l_v102_build_3.bin
Today, searching around, I don't find a trace of anyone installing this.
The file is the identical size to v101_build_3 (both 4,194,304 bytes) but dated 14 October 2011 vs. 31 May 2011.
Not wanting to be first, I'm asking here ... ...

LOL. . . I got the same message last Wednesday and was waiting for another first adopter to take the plunge.

Examining the 2 files with a hex editor, the content starts out the same but way toward the end the new one is somewhat shorter (fewer fill bytes at the end).
I hope this doesn't spell less features!
Maybe I'll wait to install it until some other brave soul does.

Just so I'm reading you correctly: The 5/2011 v1.01b03 = = 10/2011 v1.02b03?
Where did you get the release notes for the 10/2011 release?

    No, the October v102 is different from the May v101
    As I stated above, examining the 2 files with a hex editor, the content starts out the same but way toward the end the new one is somewhat shorter (fewer fill bytes at the end). Of course, I can't read the binary in any sensible way.
    I'm guessing that the files have the same total size in order to fill the program memory (EPROM?) space.
   What I am running now is definitely a NEW release. I did not find any release notes.

I'll update my camera tomorrow. Do you see any improvements in performance or behavior?
I'll look around a bit more and see if I can find release notes.  ???

I'll update this as I go:

- Java no longer asks for username/password - works better too.
- VLC still reports ~30 audio while connecting to the audio.cgi file.
- Open ports: FTP, Telnet, HTTP, and HTTPS (was this the same as before?)
-- HTTPS presents a self signed cert, but DOES work
