OpenViX Zeus requires a full reflash. You cannot update from OpenViX 3.0 or use a settings backup from any image prior to OpenViX Zeus. We have coded it so that you can't use a backup from an earlier image as it will cause issues if you do.
So what is different in OpenViX Zeus then ?
The main difference is core of the image or the OE (Open Embedded); this has undergone a lot of changes, updates and fixes. As a user you should not notice any differences between OpenViX 3.0 and OpenViX Zeus. (i.e. there are no real functional differences. But as the last release is now over 3 months ago, several updates have been implemented).
