Where did you see this version 00.03 reported? 

The latest reported by Rigol (from their firmware request page):

Here are the latest Firmware versions by Rigol product family as of January 7th, 2014:

DS2000/DS2000A FW-Version: 00.02.01

This is the version I received today from Rigol. It looks like Rigol's procedure is to request the update rather than just downloading it from their website. At least this is the way is seems for the US. I have not been able to find any mention of this version anywhere, so it may have just been released.

I see; it is possible the listing on Rigol's website is out-of-date.

Everyone is waiting for you to share it!  Please upload!

It would be great if you could make it available to us.

Did it by chance come with release notes?

If you got it from rigol, there is an doc file for version notes inside the archive..

I didn't receive an archive file with any release notes - just a link to the update file and installation instructions. I have asked Rigol for the release notes. Will post if I receive them.

Also, I mentioned to Rigol that my scope was a DS2072, not a DS2072A if that makes any difference.

FW 00.03  Duplicate Post
Testing Math Log() function,
working but the DSO locks up.

See log of a sawtooth with a bit of Negative valuesl
Note log(-negative) = 00

DSO display and controls Lock up when you try to edit expression
but USB still reports the Display with SCPI commands

HIRes is really screwy

It is looking like this is a Beta Version

Back to FW 00.02.01.oo.03

Any more news on this new firmware?
What has been fixed?  New features?  Is it worth installing?

I requested a firmware update a few days ago, but they replied that 02.01 is the latest release available.

Regards.

week ago did request new fw for 2072, someone from rigol europe sent DS2000(DSP)update_00.02.01.00.03.zip
and later, someone else from rigol usa sent separate email - 00.03.00.00.00

rigol website claims latest to be also 00.02.01.00.03

asked confirmation from that rigol usa person, claiming what i just said - no, he says, correct one is one he just sent...

wtf?

Well as Post b4, the FW 00.03.00  ...     allows the MATH    log function to be applied and it seems to work but Hangs the DSO
The function is named lg() in 00.03   but named Log()  in previous FW

The FW file is 900KB larger,   what is the additional code doing??

I think your full FW version number is  00.01.00.00.03

To get the full firmware version info from the DSO, follow these instructions:
Go to the Trigger menu and set Edge trigger.
While keeping the Trigger menu open, you are going to use the 6th and 7th right-side menu buttons as follows:
Press the [Menu7][Menu6][Menu7][Utility] buttons one after another quickly.
Then check additional info under System -> System Info.

Just to add my experience, I also requested the new firmware to rigol at the end of last week and they sent me version 00.03.00.00.00. I have a DS2072 Hw 2.0 (non A). I haven't tried it yet cause I'm thinking they might have added code to prevent the keygen from working.

Is there any other feedback on this version?

I put this onto my DS2072, which is the first hardware revision.  I have all options unlocked and BW up to 200MHz, everything still says 'official version' after the update.  Everything seems much the same, not that I have looked in depth at any differences.  So if unlocked, it looks like this stays post upgrade.

I tried that, but it didn't work.
Maybe I wasn't quick enough?

I wait for the release docs, everything i need works 100% so why take a chance? If they added some new nice features and all is well i might give it a shot.

I have an original HW v1 DS2072, which was running 00.02.01.00.03 with all options and bandwidth up to 200MHz which I upgraded to this new 00.03.00.00.00 without a problem.

Trying to go back to 00.02.01.00.03 the scope looked like it was running the downgrade, but when restarted would still be running the newer firmware.  Uninstalling the options seems to be the only way to go back to the previous version.

Re-installing the options has worked OK.
