New Version: 2.0.0.13865 (2018 07 06)
Hello,

New versions are available on the update archive. I highly recommend just running check for update in your emulator/connkit to get the files. If your network blocks direct connection however, the direct links can be found below at "ftp.hp.com/pub/calculators/Prime/". FTP protocol access appears to not yet be blocked, but who knows when they will turn that off (I've been getting notices about FTP protocol being blocked "soon" for quite some time)

HP Prime Connectivity Kit Installer - Windows
HP Prime Virtual Calculator Installer - Windows
HP Prime Connectivity Kit DMG - macOS
HP Prime Virtual Calculator DMG - macOS
HP Prime Calculator Firmware

This update fixes some outstanding issues, and lays some groundwork for some upcoming things. There are a few new things this time however.

There are no updates for applications on iOS/Android/Windows Store at this time.

Quote:HP Prime – Release Notes
-------------------------

Date Released: 2018/07/06

Internal Versions
-----------------
Firmware Version: 2.0.0.13865 (2018 07 06)
Virtual Calculator Version: 2.0.0.13865 (2018 07 06)
Connectivity Kit: 2.0.0.13865 (2018 07 06)

Description
-----------
This maintenance release of the Prime Calculator firmware and associated PC software delivers fixes to outstanding issues. This document is not a complete list of all changes, but highlights specific items. All users of the HP Prime calculator are encouraged to upgrade for the best possible experience.

Please back up your calculator before the update. Any existing data on the device may be wiped during the update process.



New Functionality and Changes (Calculator Software)
1. ROUND and TRUNC now interpret DMS inputs in a more expected manner (e.g. ROUND(45°29′57.7″,4) ----> 45°29′58″ )
2. Numeric only PRODUCT function created which helps reduce change of symbolic results in unexpected places such as Sequence app
3. INPUT previously had issues with local variables being given as input. Place EVAL( ) around your definition to programmatically create INPUT boxes.
LOCAL a:= { ... }; INPUT(EVAL(a));
4. Power below 10% will now display a red critical icon in the title bar.
5. Integration when done from HOME or in an app will now always numerically evaluate rather than symbolically. This will help prevent unanticipated results when a simple numeric answer is expected
6. Added a TDim variable to control screen dim time - default is 30 seconds
7. CAS updated to later version with many improvements and fixes:
a. Improves symmetrical numeric integrals (e.g. inputs like ∫(normald(0,1,X),X,-10000.,10000.); )
b. Implemented subdiagonal extraction with diag(matrix,index)
c. Implemented hamdist(list,list) in addition to int,int
d. Handles things like ∫(e^(-x^2-i*t*x),x,-∞,∞) directly
e. gramschmidt now accepts 0 as optional 2nd argument if 1st arg is a matrix to avoid normalization
f. Implemented support for replace(string,string,string)

New Functionality and Changes (Connectivity Kit)
1. Closes update windows automatically upon completion
2. Unzips firmware file to new location inside "<Documents>\HP Connectivity Kit\Firmware"


Resolved issues and changes excluding CAS
-----------------------------------------
1. Resolved issue with colors not saving properly after exiting Notes
2. Resolved issue with ARC colors if the angle_1<0 and angle_2>pi
3. Resolved issue with nested loops containing a CAS internal function not working (e.g. Σ calling a CAS function inside)
4. Resolved issue with DIMGROB only working with 16bit color but not 32bit
5. Resolved issue with clicking at very end of Chars browser
6. Resolved issue with Solve app not working with user defined variables as expected

Resolved issues and changes in CAS
----------------------------------
1. Resolved issue with permuorder([3,8,6,5,4,1,2,7])
2. Resolved issue with complex_mode and cZeros
3. Resolved issue with int(sin(x),x,0,inf)
4. Resolved issue with solve ∫(e^(-a*x^2+b*x+c)*polynomial,x,-∞,∞)
5. Resolved issue with a:=x *(x - (exp(x) - exp(-x)) / 2 / ((exp(1) - exp(-1)) / 2)); b:=int(a); simplify(diff(b)-a);
6. Resolved issue with assume(x,integer); additionally(x>0); solve(x^2=2);
7. Resolved issue with ∫(sin(x^2),x) in degree mode
8. Resolved issue with ∫(e^x*sin(x^2),x)
9. Resolved issue with approximate integrals with identical lower and upper boundaries
10. Resolved issue with randperm(-5)

RE: New Version: 2.0.0.13865 (2018 07 06)
Bonjour
Je viens de télécharger les mises à jours depuis le logiciel de connectivité, après la mise à jour du logiciel, j'ai demandé une mise à jour de la calculatrice, mais le logiciel me réponds qu'il n'y en a un pas de disponible.
Pourtant dans le dossier Micrologiciel j' ai bien la dernière version.
Je suis sous windows 10.
Ma calculatrice est une HW A.
Enervant !


Hello
I just downloaded the updates from the connectivity software, after updating the software, I asked for an update of the calculator, but the software answer me that there is not one available.
Yet in the folder Firmware I have the latest version.
I am under windows 10.
My calculator is a HW A.
Annoying!

Sorry for my english

If you manually placed it, then it is probably in the wrong spot. Files now go in \Firmware\PrimeG1\<files>

Did the connkit download them directly? If not, just let it do so.

Merci Tim cela a fonctionné correctement.
C'est l'ancienne version du kit de connectivité qui m' avais téléchargé le micrologiciel et placé celui-ci dans le dossier.
Petite question subsidiaire : peut-on avoir des précisions sur ce nouveau modèle de Prime annoncé.


Thanks Tim it worked fine.
This is the old version of the connectivity kit that had downloaded the firmware and put it in the folder.
Small subsidiary question: can we have details on this new announced Premium model.

RE: New Version: 2.0.0.13865 (2018 07 06)
Hello,

My “old” HP Prime will not update to version 13685.
SW = 2018 02 12 (13441).
HW = A.
Serial # 4CY3550316.
OP = V0.050.639.

ConKit is updated to 13865.
The updates for the Prime are downloaded and are in the Firmware directory in PrimeG1 and PrimeG2.
Prime_app.dat = 5-7-2018
Prime_master.dat = 28-10-2018
Prime_os.rom = 13-06-2018

I updated the Prime on the normal way (pop-up screen "Update firmware - G1")
My Prime is indeed updated (likely) and ends with X^2 + Y^2 = Y.
After updating, the update pop-up screen comes back in the ConKit.
My Prime has not been updated, it still indicates version 13441.
Up to now, all updates went well.
What’s surprises me is that in the update pop-up screen at "what has changed" the text belongs to the previous version 13441, it’s also wrong in the file release_info_EN.html.
By the way, release_info.txt has the correct text.

Questions:
What can happen?
Will the update not work for HW-A?

I only have the half planets ?!

Surely a configuration problem but I don't see where.

Do not worry, it's not a bad configuration, it's a problem with the current firmware dragged from the last betas. The video had to be done with a previous firmware. Even in my language the user manual shows it. It's just a problem with filled circles.

Hi Tim,

Do you have any info about the new G2 hardware ? Any speed improvement ? Any new feature ? Or is it just to fight processor obsolescence ? Should I order one ? Wink

Thanks a lot in advance and cheers,

Vincent

Hello,
I have been able to update my Prime HW-A to version 2.0.0.13865 !!
I have disabled the windows defender real-time protection (W10).
Updating again went well for the real Prime as well as for the virtual Prime.
I wanted to tell you this in any case.
Grr .. stay busy and try, you learn in every case!

RE: New Version: 2.0.0.13865 (2018 07 06)
Crashing of the Virtual Calculator on MacOS High Sierra seems to be fixed, but the vanishing text bug is still in full force. This is a very nasty bug that is highly reproducible and makes the calculator almost unusable until you fix it temporarily by relaunching the virtual calculator. Please tell me what I can do to help HP fix this bug in the next release. It's really quit horrible.

UPDATE: I spoke too soon about the crashing bug being fixed. It seems to crash less than the previous version but it still crashes.

I wish those 2 things were the extent of the Virtual Calculator bugs on MacOS, but it isn't. Much of the time when I switch between Virtual Calculator and other apps, the calculator somehow gets stuck in Settings Mode. I click the Home button and it shows the Home Settings! I click CAS and it shows the CAS Settings! Click Blue-Shift and the CAS or Home and the same thing -- Settings! This nightmare doesn't end until I relaunch the Virtual Calculator, but I then proceed to use it, then switch to another app, then switch back and the Virtual Calculator is messed up again. It's almost unusable.

What is G2 and who has it available for order? Big Grin I have three Primes so far (HW-A, HW-C with old keyboard, HW-C with new keyboard) and want to collect all of them.

Hi toml_12953, thanks for your reply.
Updating was only possible after stopping windows defender real-time protection.
See post #14

My Connectivity Kit and Calc updated but the Prime Virtual Calculator won't connect. I got to the FTP site, which do I use for Win 10, the .exe or the .dmg and do I just run the .exe?

I've recently started using a more up to date version of the qt libraries and I'm not seeing the text disappearing any more... maybe that had something to do with it.

Right now however, the Mac/windows emulators are basically the same as before - just updated with Core fixes and changes done through the final G2 work. Next release when/if any should have more changes and fixes in the other parts of the applications.

Please send me an email to calchelp at hp.com so I can in direct contact with you for testing things.

I'm guessing at some point you blocked the connection in your firewall. It pops up a "do you wish to allow connection" message the first time you ran it. I suspect you clicked no, or only on home networks or something. If you unblock it, it should work fine for the future.

The EXE is the file you want.
