Cristiano - I agree with you in principle.
Unfortunately Pebble releases the 3.8.0 firmware update in mid-December and I got 7 emails the same day from existing PWP users who want to know when they can upgrade. I spent most of my free time since then, including my 2 week PTO, trying to get the firmware upgrade working. Getting the upgrade working includes making sure it can be reversed if they want to go back to 2.9.1. When Pebble threw in the requirement to install the new Recovery Firmware first that really slowed things down. I had never been able to do that before and it took a long time to get it to work mostly reliably. The new firmware required changes to the way the time was updated, notifications were sent and apps installed.
When Pebble released the Pebble Time last spring, I spent 2 months getting that working at all and another month squashing bugs and getting the Timeline updates working. Then they released the Pebble Time Round in November and that killed that month.
I support 5 different Pebble Models, (Classic Pebble, Pebble Steel, Pebble Time, Pebble Time Steel and Pebble Time Round) I host and support firmware for a dozen versions of firmware for the Classic and Pebble Steel. I host and support a few each for the Time, Time Steel and Time Round. Every Pebble gets different versions of the firmware There are 4 different types of apps that get installed depending on the Pebble.
I need to test every thing so no one bricks their Pebble while doing my best to fix bugs with PWP as they get reported.
The vast majority of my support comes from the frequency Pebble releases new devices and firmware updates.
I have a full time software engineering job with a large company who considers overtime to be the priority not any side work., I have a side business of 19 years with a huge warehouse and a couple hundred thousand dollars worth of inventory I need to sell. I work on the Pebble software after that. Oh and I actually sleep almost 7 hours a day.
I really want to get to new important features like notifications. I been trying to do this for a couple of years but I also feel I cannot let down the users who purchased PWP.
I know I have an update I need to do to get background worker processes running so apps like Morpheuz and the Compass apps work correctly. I know I have 4 or 5 other minor fixes to do as well. Hopefully after that I can start on the background notifications.
This was NOT a rant against you. I'm sorry if it seemed that way.
