Is the EX3 1.15 firmware upgrade now a Windows-only operation? There doesn't appear to be a Mac version of the Version Up Tool. What's up with that?

Latest Firmware for the EX3 is 1.5, I believe. I am told that it will now be upgradable via memory card.

No. It's 1.15. Why speculate when it's so easy to check before you post? Besides, I didn't ask what the latest firmware version is since I already knew. I asked why the updater for the 1.15 version is Windows only.

Hi Ian,

Can you define "shortly"? ;-)

Is there any reason the VersionUpTool for the 1.10 version can't be used to apply the 1.15 version? Putting on my thirty-years-of-software-engineering hat, I could speculate that the 1.10 VersionUpTool could be used, either as-is if it prompts you to select the firmware binary file to use, or by first renaming the 1.15 firmware binary file to the same name as the 1.10 firmware binary file.

Thanks,

Lynn (two n's)

Hi Ian,

I see that the 1.15 firmware update .zip file has now been updated to include the Mac version.

Thanks,

Lynn (two n's)
