 From the 00.04.05.02.04 MSO_DS1000Z Release Notes.txt

v00.01.00.00.05   2013/05/19
     - Released the first edition
...
v00.04.05.02.04  2023/02/28
     -Added new nandflash driver and original nandflash compatibility

Yes, the DS1000Z got some continued attention (even some added functionality) for many years. But it must have been Rigol's best-selling scope for years, probably until quite recently. I don't see the DHO1000 and 4000 series having the same success in the market: Without any AWG and logic analyser options, they are just too limited in this market segment.

The "fire sale" of the DHO1000 series in November/December also suggests that those models have not been selling well. So I would expect this scope range to be replaced relatively soon, maybe by DHO2000 and 5000 models which have the missing options. On the lower end, Rigol have already launched the DHO1000-U in China, a cost-optimised replacement with slightly worse specs.

With some luck, the successor models will be close enough to the current platform, such that Rigol also spins off a firmware version for the DHO1000 and 4000 series occasionally. But I would not expect anywhere near the level of long-term support the DS1000Z received.

It seems like a new User Manual v2.0 is available for DHO1000 at international Rigol WEB site https://supportint.rigol.com/ but the download link needs an account that it is impossible to active. EU and Japan Rigol WEB sites have still the v1.0.

Thanks for the tip !
I've dowloaded it. The manual it's dated December 2022. The previous I have is dated Octomber 2022.
But is seems it have the same size, contents list and page numbers. Size is about 19.2MB.
I've searched randomly and I didn't find any changes ...

I can't attach it, maximum allowed is 8000k. Sorry ...  :(
I will attach a screen capture regarding the fist page.

RobbiOne:
Rigol firmware is a mess from USA, Japan, Eu and Int WEB sites: same FW with different release dates, no versions aligned. Now the same mess is for the manuals: v1 on EU, v2 on int. and v3 on Japan site. Please, please, Rigol be serious (and professional), stop that stupid mess at all!

DHO4404 on Amazon.de warehouse for € 3074 - 20% at checkout = € 2459 including VAT. Still too expensive for me as a hobbyist, but maybe someone is tempted?
