One pitfall many users have reported is a fear of upgrading both firmware and software. I too have a fear of updating Mission Planner because of the number of times that features have broken on the newest non-beta releases.
Why does Mission Planner not appear to have “stable” releases, and what is causing all of these immediate changes that appear to happen overnight?
Mission Planner appears inconsistent with the rest of Ardupilot’s release documentation of new features and critical bug fixes. Most of the community, myself included, cannot interpret the majority of commits from github. I don’t think those commits replace a high-level change log.
What do you think about Mission Planner, and how much do you trust the latest upgrades?
