OpenViX Helios vu solo2

  1. bobby123
    OpenViX Helios requires a full reflash, you can use a settings backup taken from OpenViX Zeus this time (but not from OpenViX 3.0 or earlier).


    So what is different in OpenViX Helios then?

    As with OpenViX Zeus the main difference is core of the image or the OE (Open Embedded), this has undergone a lot of changes, updates and fixes (including fixes for the heartbleed bug in openssl). As a user you should not notice any differences between OpenViX Zeus and OpenViX Helios. (i.e. there are no real functional differences.)

    OpenViX Zeus build 023 will be the final build in the Zeus series, and so Helios takes over the reins.

    But why a new image so soon, you just launched Zeus?

    Basically the recent update of the image OE (Open Embedded) to v 2.1, was very significant. This contains substantial changes and updates that mean you cannot use the online update feature from OpenViX Zeus build 023. Rather than asking users not to use the online update function, we have taken the step of changing the image name to ensure that users perform a fresh flash.
