When will

be finally updated?

It was not updated since October 2018 and we just got the Blackmagic Camera 6.6 update.

So only the Bluetooth protocol might contain new features.. But the rest looks still current. ;)

Well, my app is the one getting bad ratings because
a) you read but not set all
resolutions (Constants missing in the documentation and in the bluetooth implementation in the camera itself)

and

b) because it offers resolutions and codecs the camera firmware doesn't support
(anymore) as the protocoll offers no way to ask the camera what it supports.
The only thing you can find out is the camera model but the documentation doesn't contain
a list of the exact names the different cameras will send. So you can only guess about camera
models you don't own.

Damn.

In Firmware 6.6 the constant for DCI 4K resolution finally works.
BUT!!! The documented constant to send for FullHD resolution stopped working.

I replied with this fact in the support ticket "DEV-1449" and also mentioned the missing
constants for the 3 new resolutions.
