Are the pin outs different from prior MFD AP units?

If so, is this be why V1.16 has been installed on new units but not released for installation on earlier units?

Would the Developer please provide an update and clarity on the firmware update issue?

Why has V1.116 been released commercially on new units, but not yet released for download for existing users?

Thank you.

Well, you should by new AP. Its new policy. No downloadable firmware updates. Want new firmware - buy new AP where its preinstalled.

I already even got PM to confirm this "information"

Ofc its a joke. Just tired to wait new firmware without any information about it. And suddenly - its already on new APs without chance to download or any comments from developer! Thats strange and a bit offensively :| I got 2 MFD AP, MFD AAT and RLink LRS (somewhere i heard that its close to MFD production). And cant get latest FW.

The feeling is mutual, but let's just have a little more patience...it will happen.

Here are some pictures of the internals for comparison of both boards for all you techies out there. There is a red jumper wire soldered to the back of the pins on my new unit that goes from A2 (power ground) to Elevator ground pin. There are also some changes inside. The top is made of metal and has raised areas that have paste and touch the bits that heat up like a heat sink. Im not sure what the other changes mean but I figured you might want to compare. Enjoy and comment on what you see.

from what I see with clear eye, is that the only difference is the casing, which provides better heat dissipation and no audio modem which we saw in previous versions too.
