PineTime's Infinitime Firmwares history

February 15, 2021 — Nico Cartron

This article aims at keeping track of Infinitime firmware versions: when they've been released, what they brought, and where to get them.


Rationale

I wanted to have a place where I can look at if needed, to answer questions such as "when did Infinitime bring this specific feature?"

So I figured out it would be nice to have it also available for other folks :)

Of course you could look at the Github releases page, but the present article wants to be "straight to the point".

Also, bear in mind that the PineTime wiki is a very good place to start with, if you need more detailed information.
