We’re at the point in EDGEs life where we’re mostly focused on improvements to performance and hunting down any remaining bugs. This version is largely that - going through our backlog of reported issues and making sure they’re handled.
That said, I’d like to highlight specifically some major improvements to file parsing/loading and visualization - we’re seeing 200-400% faster parsing and about 2/3rds less memory usage on some larger files. We also (finally) have a progress indicator when handling larger files.
As always, thanks to everyone who has reported issues or given feedback on EDGE - we’ll continue to work through our backlog, and are excited to release it to the general public.

Playing around with 1.2.5-Edge an d finding that I cannot set some of the firmware settings. In particular I’m trying to change $100, $101, and $102 and it keeps defaulting to 500 regardless of what I type. For instance, I’m trying to enter 100.00 for $102 and every time I enter it it changes the value to 500. Don’t know if this is a known issue or not. Also seeing similar issues with some other settings.
I assume this question is to me. I have a Onefinity and have used 1.1.7 with no problem. I like some of the new features in the Edge version so starting to play with that. I just installed the upgraded Onefinity Z slider which uses a 1610 screw instead of a 1204 so I need to change the $102 value to change the Z axis travel revolution. I cannot type in the new value that I want to use as the form will simply ignore whatever I type in and replace it with 500. I went into my settings backup file and manually changed the $102 value and reimported the settings file and it worked fine. But, it seems like I should be able to open the Firmware settings page and change the values directly on that page.,
Good question ! Under settings menu select visualizer , you appear to be able to turn off the visualiztion in both regular and light weight mode for a number of options, however I have never tried these out.
I had a few initial issues with the Autozero Probe in Edge 1.2.5 where it touched down on the Z, then went hard left and tried diving through the plate. I finally have that working now after going back to the original in the settings, closing everything down, restarting gSender again, and then re choosing the Autozero.
The only other thing that is acting all crazy (but works in 1.1.7) is my joystick (xbox type). It recognizes that it’s attached, moves and seems to disconnect again. If I close Edge, and open 1.1.7, it works normally.
