Miele XGW 3000 gateway firmware 2.3.1

New firmware the other day. First it was 2.3.0, then quickly after 2.3.1:

Release 2.3.0 – 01.08.2018

  • Improved device sign on
  • Stability improvements and bugfixing

I wonder what’s in 2.3.1, but probably something was broken in 2.3.0, then quickly fixed.

No changes observed so far. Known bugs persist, new ones not discovered yet. That’s not entirely true. I still don’t know if Miele fixed the random change of name of some appliances. In my case it’s always the dishwasher (my only Wi-Fi device), and I have seen it change to “Oven” or “Washing machine”, i.e. names of my other appliances.

The app

The Miele@mobile app for Android also received an update a few days later (Wednesday, August 8th): version 2.9.4. This app has generally been of great quality, but this time it’s completely broken:

  • Frequent crashes. Never happened before.
  • The appliance list sorting algorithm is changed from logical to random, e.g. turned off appliances at the top while other appliances are running.
  • Wrong reporting of power consumption. Reports 1.0 kWh when it should be 0.1 kWh (washing machine).

It seems someone was back from vacation and decided it was time to push out a new release because of the new Miele logo. But forgot that it was still untested. Please fix.
