... for certain values of "Frequently" ....

Last update was at least 10 months ago. And the update just released still has the "Pluses" spelling error.     :-//

What about other things?

--------------------
v00.04.04.00.07  2016/07/19
     - Added the full-screen display in the XY mode
     - Modified the Trace data of average sample mode
     - Fixed the bug of system halted for wave persistance in the Zoom mode
     - Fixed bugs about Measure

Does "Fixed bugs about Measure" mean the measurements now work in math mode?

I don't know. I haven't installed the firmware yet. Maybe someone who has done so can run through some tests to find out.

After reading about the one user who had the bad experience (LEDs misbehaving) I'm reluctant to try it. Even though I would love to have the fullscreen x-y display.


Talk about "not parsing"... I've never been able to decode much of the Chinglish in the changelogs. What does "Modified the Trace data of average sample mode" actually mean? Did this address some bug, and if so which one?

That doesn't sound like a firmware problem to me - he says the scope runs fine apart from the LEDs. Seems more like a hardware problem (bad flash memory cell?).

"average sample mode" is easy.

"Modified the Trace" sounds like they modified the wiggly line on screen.

On my DS4014 I've seen much more granular quantization than I ought to when taking certain measurements (e.g. it will fluctuate between 1.000V and 1.034V, nothing in-between, on a quantity that should involve heavy averaging). This suggests to me that they're doing something silly like storing the math result in an 8 bit field *after* dividing by N. IIRC I saw the same problem on my DS1054Z -- maybe this patch fixes it?

So you think that by "average sample mode" they might mean Average _Acquire_ mode? Or perhaps they are referring to the Measurements "average" which is something different?
 
"Modified the trace _data_" could mean just about anything, from modifying the wiggly line on the screen, to modifying what goes into the Measurements averages, to something else entirely.  What bug could this be fixing?

It never said anything about FIXING a bug, they simply inserted a brand new bug called "Modified the trace_data...".

All upgrades / Hacks stay there as is before

Don't forget to do a recalibration after the update

Updated my DS1054z. All options still working. Can't confirm the LED bug. Seems to work fine so far.

I am curious about the "Added the full-screen display in the XY mode" that was added in the 00.04.04.00.07 release. Can someone perhaps post a screenshot of that here?

Is there a wiki or some other source that list the various firmware versions and when they were released?  I have a fairly new 1054Z with 00.04.03.SP2 and board version 0.1.4 and I'd like to have the full size XY screen but since there appears to be some bugs I think I'll hold off for a while.  Just curious about hoe frequently they do an update...

There's less bugs in this version than ever before.

Brian,
Here are the latest release notes (see attachment) - there is a history.

    Download the firmware, unpack it, then read the txt files. It contains all the history with dates, starting from the first released firmware up to the current one.



  • In the file 'MSO_DS1000Z Release Notes.txt' is written:
    Quote
    v00.04.03.01.05   2015/06/16
         - ...
         - Added the mutual communication with DG4000 Series
         - ...

    Does anyone know what "mutual communication" is about, please?

I can't find the firmware on rigol site (http://int.rigol.com/Product/Index/4), only 00.04.03.
Am I blind or has it moved?

Anyone have a direct link to the download?

It has been removed, because a user has detected a potential bug. This was discussed on a separate thread on this forum... I am too lazy to look up the thread, but you should easily find it.

The link has been removed but the file can be downloaded from it's original location here:-

http://int.rigol.com/File/ProductSoftWare/20160914/DS1000Z(ARM)update.rar

That's not to suggest you should given that they must have a reason for removing the latest update link
