but it did! the wart was very hot though (that's how I discovered my mistake)
i guess, the system drew much more than 1A from that wart.

Yesterday, some updates became available for SM 1.4.4 (in software updater). I installed them.
After that the wifi hotspot disappeared. Couldn't restore it.
Downloaded an updated version of 1.4.4 from stellarmate.com - same story. No hotspot.
Both versions were slow to boot and showed lines about Ekos Live offline
and also red-fonted line saying "a start job is running for Samba NMB Daemon".
That message stayed there for more that 1 min (during boot).

Reverted to a week old version of 1.4.4 - hot spot is back, no Ekos Live and Samba messages.

Just reporting.

Ouch... on the second boot the Samba message is back and no hotspot...
So strange.
This version worked for me for several days.

Went back to 1.4.3 (Mate). All is well. Will wait for 1.4.5.
1.4.4 is flaky for me.
In 1.4.4 KDE UI was very sluggish. KStars/Ekos when started were OK/fast.
And the hotspot situation is still a mystery to me.
In 1.4.3 the hotspot was also doing tricks but at least I made it work...
I realize, those are beta releases...
(RPI3 is rock solid/stable).

I have this latest version, and installed all updates this morning, no issues here and GUI is a little sluggish, like when you click on any item in top left it takes a second to open the menus...Hotspot ok, so not sure why you got issues... :)

I found some hotspot issue as well *sigh*. Ok, so another version was uploaded an hour ago. There would be no more updates to v1.4.4, this is it.

I'm trying to figure out why my VK-162 GPS fails to work with 1.4.4, but works fine on 1.4.3. It does connect, then nothing further happens. On 1.4.3 I get a GPS fix within a couple of seconds.
The 1.4.4 GPSD log tells me nothing, I've tried to install Wireshark to see what's being transmitted on the USB - but no success (access rights etc.).
Any suggestions? (troubleshooting/logs to check etc.)

When was this downloaded? On September 18th, the "official" v1.4.4 was announced.

Could some issues be related to board temperature ?

How many of you use a case with a cooling fan and also confirm adequate power supply
