Looks like the story about the impact of the full moon is a truth: everybody become more emotional and aggressive . So I ask you to keep calm and help community and HomeGenie.
I completely agree with @David_Wallis that HG needs more automation tests in order that everybody can be sure that new features are not breaking existing ones. During refactoring of the statistics submodule I wrote a number of tests - so we have first steps done in this direction.
Also, I understand @raptorjr and @bkenobi problems with restoring backups from HG r526. I expected that this should work for most cases (and I personally was able to successfully restore my settings’ backup), but if you have problems - I think that they may be related with missing native libraries. That’s what I suggest:
- I’ll add more logging to the restore process and will publish the new version (I think it would be V1.1.16)
- You will try to restore your backups on the fresh install of this version
- You will report problems to the topic Problems with restoring settings from the backup and attach your logs and (if it’s possible) your backup file.
I know that it’s time-consuming and I very appreciate that you are spending your free time trying to catch all that bugs.
No, dotnet core works on RPi 2, too.
Finally, this topic looks overloaded, so I advise you to start a new topic for discussing different aspects of the system. For example, here is the topic to discuss Distribution and installation.
