I wanted to post a quick update about the OctoEverywhere v1 printer protocol! I have spent countless hours developing it and I’m happy to announce that the v1 protocol is now live for a subset of users!
When you connect to your printer if you see octolab in the URL, you’re on the new protocol! For example, you might see:
The v1 protocol is a total re-write of the printer protocol in which I made some dramatic advances in the technology. (the full details will be published in a blog post soon.) To start, users will experience faster page loading times, smoother webcam streams, less data used, and smoother file transfers. In the long run, the v1 protocol makes the system much more flexible and efficient for upcoming features!
Consider this roll out a beta test of the protocol. Not everyone will have access just yet, but very soon. The transition to the v1 protocol should be 100% transparent for all users – so if you experience any issues, please reach out to me via the support ticket system so I can check it out!
To ensure you can use the v1 protocol as soon as it’s available in your region, make sure your plugin is up-to-date!
