Open Beta for Android

With more features coming online in cars that unfortunately the software developers cannot and will not buy, we’re in the process of opening up an Open Beta channel for CanZE. If you are daring you can switch over to that track. The Open Beta will be used to release features that need additional testing.

A good example is the Tires screen. Writing TPMS valve IDs has been a long wish and it has been problematic since it was released. That’s what you get when unable to test on a real car! At this moment this is exactly what we are fixing (hopefully) in the beta.

Caution: The OpenBeta channel will not always be the bleeding edge latest and greatest. We have not yet determined if we will roll the actual releases over the Open Beta. We need to see how this goes. No promises. Remember, CanZE is a labor of love……

Nil the above. The way the Play Store works is that everything we put up there, Open Beta or production, has to have a higher number than the previous, and you will always receive the highest number you are entitled to. You are ALWAYS entitled to the production version, and are only entitled to the Open Beta if you opt in. So when we release a production version, by definition that will be the latest greatest. If we were still testing a feature at that point, we’d have to immediately re-release that feature version in the Open Beta.

Now if you decide to enroll in the Open Beta, we would appreciate if you can keep an eye on the issue tracker and report your findings, like for instance now for the Tire ID’s.
