The new firmware Zwave 7.016 is the version that has been officially certified by Zwave, see the announcement in http://www.comfortforums.com/forum25/3424.html

This firmware can be upgraded by Comfigurator according to instructions in http://www.comfortforums.com/forum92/3400.html

The changes from Zwave 6.024 are
  • Virtual node counter update triggers Comfort Response, even if the value is unchanged so Scene commands can work.
  • Improved EEPROM write cycle during Learn mode.  Previously, it did not respond to Poll command during write.
  • Backup Z-Wave data block in case of learn failure[size=,]which causes it to reset and all virtual nodes lost. This workaround is recommended by Z-Wave.  In event of failure, data block is restored to same network ID and node ID. If the controller is not in network before learn, the backup will not be initiated.
  • EEPROM is updated automatically, after virtual node is added or removed.  Hence, no need to "learn" from Primary Controller again.
  • UCM/Zwave Learn mode time-out increased to 60 secs.  This caters for cases where learn error happened, but user is unaware and keeps waiting for completion.
  • Automatic "factory default reset" when controller is excluded from network. Added new auto report status when UCM source 1D is available.
  • Cater for Multilevel switch command class. Status report value cannot be 100(Ox64) to 254(OxFE). If value falls in this forbidden range, will report as 255(OxFF) instead.
  • During learn, controllers are polled for supported command classes as well.
  • Patched Multilevel Switch Report Command.  Previously, registers are not updated correctly[size=.]
  • Inhibit Z-Wave commands to send to non-existing nodes or channels in nodes. Also inhibit Z- Wave commands sending to non-supported nodes.
  • Inhibit Z-Wave GET commands for multichannel bit address (ie. requiring reply from destination).
  •  Add new status to indicate when response commands are inhibited.
