Where are New Feature Release Notes for fw 2.10? Need a Pinned Sticky Thread!

Line 6 Forum Mods:

 

Please create pinned threads at the top of the Helix Forums to prominently accumulate all newly added features and descriptions until a new User Guide PDF is released! Ideally, there should be one thread for newly added Firmware features, and another for newly added Editor features. These could be combined into one thread if clearly organized. Perhaps entitled something like: "Helix Features User Guide Addendum". The same language from the original 2.10 Release Notes posts could be copied and pasted. This should be added to on an ongoing basis.

 

Note: This is not regarding the Editor and Firmware Installation Instructions!

 

The features introduced in fw 2.10 that had been briefly described in the 2.10 firmware installation thread and editor installation thread are now gone (or very difficult to find)! The 2.11 fw inatallation instructions have replaced the prior feture descriptions.

 

As no updated User Guide is being released until the next major update, the details of newly introduced features subsequent to 2.0 (i.e. not in the Rev D User Guide), should remain prominently posted in a thread atop these forums!

 

A search of the Line 6 Knowledgebase for 2.10 features did not produce any obvious information!?

 

I know various threads since 2.10 was introduced Nov 22 do contain discussions of these features, however, these are not evident (to new users) and are also not easy to find.

I agree with you that a sticky thread with the release notes (new features, bug fixes, etc.) would be great to have, especially until a new revision of the manual comes out.  If you are interested in finding them now, go to the Line6 download section where you will find them somewhat redundant and somewhat split out in both the 2.10 'Helix' app as well as the 2.10 'Flash Memory' release notes. Some of the new features are not detailed in the the 2.10 'Helix' app notes and can only be found in the notes in for the 2.10 'Flash Memory' download.

It is still remarkably disappointing that simply using the Line 6 Website's Search Tool, fails to yield a direct hit for any of the following strings:

 

"Helix Release Notes"

"Helix Firmware Release Notes"

"Helix Firmware Update"

"Helix Updates"

"Helix Firmware"

 

Line 6 has spent considerable effort updating the website, yet the KnowledgeBase and Search Tools are inadequate.
