Interestingly enough - there are a few versions missing from their list:
3.283
3.228
3.236

It would also be nice if they would put the release date on that summary, as well. It wouldn't take much on their part.
I've gone back and tried to reconstruct it the best I can, but there are a number of dates I still don't have.

3.283 is because I missed a bug, so it had a lifespan of about how long I slept that night before I fixed it and released 3.284.  The other versions are before my time, and so are not listed because those who came before me did not leave any notes for me to reconstruct their history and add to the version history.  I did the best I could to fill in the gap between the last update to the history and when I was asked to update it.

As for adding dates to the history page I will ask our web guys to look into it.  They do the page formatting etc. for the history, so its really up to them.

in the mean time though, here are some dates from our internal developers notes.  They may not be 100% complete for all version numbers since this list is just for our reference and not generally cleaned up or ever intended to be seen by anyone.  These are build numbers, which we use across all products, so not all of these are ActiveHome Pro releases, they might be a plug-in, or another product completely.  Hope this helps you clean up your folder :)

I would like to see some of the older versions.... particularly 3.228 (dated 5-09-2008) re-posted for download. We know this older version works well for XP. Maybe it could be called an XP version.

Is stuff not working in XP?

I'll ask the web guys about linking to older installers.  Most of it is still on the public web servers, just none of the web pages link to them anymore.

The old XP setups do work (and there are MANY old dust collector PCs out there too). And those of us that could lose a Hard Drive or whatever... would like to know that the old software is still there.

I personally like to have access to the full version history of software I purchase too :)  I was just concerned you meant the more recent software is broken on XP :)

I haven't tried the newer versions on my setup. I would like to get a new android phone as well as upgrade my HA PC. But for now I have a 12 year old former 98 P2 PC [now running XP] that has been running 24/7 for the last four years running my home setup. I have another old dust collector just waiting to take the old PC's place. So for now... I haven't made much in changes.

Good news on 2 of these fronts.

I just got done speaking with the web guys.  Starting Monday they are going to start adding release dates (for builds where we still have records of the release dates) to the version history, and future releases will have dates on them.

This may take a bit longer since there is a lot of anchor tags to type out and test...  but they said they will also start adding links the older installers in the version history page.  A small disclaimer though...  a few of the installer files are no longer hosted, so the initial release of ActiveHome PRO for example, 142, will not be available.  Also we have to keep the economical operation of our servers in mind so there may, someday, arise the need to retire some of these versions.  We will give you some notice before we take down access and retire those links.  I don't think we will need to retire anything for the foreseeable future though.

Are there any other specific version you want us to make available?  I know Dave wants 228, but I can give the web guys a list of builds to make available at a higher priority than the rest if you have preferences.

When is an upgrade to AHP 3.310 going to happen
« Reply #52 on: May 30, 2011, 07:18:43 PM »

I'm using 3.310 as everything following is buggy.  When will the programers use what's in 3.310 as the starting point?  3.310 seems to be the 21st Century version of 3.228 that was in the end of the 20th Century.  A version that doesn't drive users crazy.  X10 and AHP are best when you set it up with modules and timers and AHP does the rest.

I am calling on X-10 to make the AHP software, which currently quite bug-ridden, open-source, so the user community can fix and improve it.  Please let x-10 know you support this plan.

Since X10USA is a corporation I doubt it will never be open source.   If a new version (post 3.318) is based on 3.310 it should be bug free.
