Finish exam

  • AAPS 2.7 contains new objective 11 for automation.
  • You have to finish exam (objective 3 and 4) in order to complete objective 11.
  • If for example you did not finish the exam in objective 3 yet, you will have to complete the exam before you can start objective 11.
  • This will not effect other objectives you have already finished. You will keep all finished objectives!

Export settings

  • AAPS 2.7 uses a new encrypted backup format.
  • You must export your settings after updating to version 2.7.
  • Settings files from previous versions can only be imported in AAPS 2.7. Export will be in new format.
  • Make sure to store your exported settings not only on your phone but also in at least one safe place (your pc, cloud storage...).
  • If you build AAPS 2.7 apk with the same keystore than in previous versions you can install new version without deleting the previous version.
  • All settings as well as finished objectives will remain as they were in the previous version.
  • In case you have lost your keystore build version 2.7 with new keystore and import settings from previous version as described in the troubleshooting section.

Autosens (Hint - no action necessary)

  • Autosens is changed to a dynamic switching model which replicates the reference design.
  • Autosens will now switch between a 24 and 8 hours window for calculating sensitivity. It will pick which ever one is more sensitive.
  • If users have come from oref1 they will probably notice the system may be less dynamic to changes, due to the varying of either 24 or 8 hours of sensitivity.

  • Scroll down and click triangle next to “Dana RS”.
