IF YOU DO NOT FIRST DOWNLOAD AND USE THE LATEST VERSION OF RT2 TO CREATE A BACKUP OF YOUR RECIPES, YOU MAY LOSE THOSE RECIPES FOREVER WHEN YOU UPGRADE TO RT3
Things you need to know before you begin using RoasTime 3 and Beta.Roast.World
- We have been syncing the old Roast.World with beta.roast.world, so most of old roasts will already be there when you login to the new site with your old credentials. Some more recent roasts may not have been synced yet, but they will be. All these old roasts will still be backed up on the old servers, too, until we take them down.
The new RoasTime 3 (RT3) will not sync with the old Roast.World, which means any roasts you do using the new software will not appear on the old Roast.World, but will instead only appear on the new site.
Recipes can now sync with the New Roast World but in order to sync your old RT2 recipes, you’ll first need to download the latest version of RT2 to create a backup of your recipes before you move them over to RT3. (Don’t worry, it’s pretty easy.)
YOU MUST FIRST DOWNLOAD AND USE THE LATEST VERSION OF RT2 FROM THE LINKS BELOW TO CREATE A BACKUP OF YOUR RECIPES, OR YOU MAY LOSE THOSE RECIPES FOREVER
How to Upgrade (Important!)
To back up your recipes and begin using RoasTime 3 with Beta.Roast.World you must follow three steps. It will only take a few minutes. If you do not use recipes, you can skip to step #3.
- Download and install RT2 v2.5.7 on your machine.
Backup your recipes with RT2 v2.5.7. Matthew, the main RT3 coder, has produced a short video to guide you through the process. (You will also be producing a backup of your roast profiles, though this backup shouldn’t be necessary.)
Download and install RoasTime 3 from roastime.aillio.com
Congratulations! You can now use RoasTime 3 with the New Roast.World at https://beta.roast.world
So What’s Different in RT3?
In developing RT3, the initial primary focus has been performance and usability . That means the feel is exactly the same as RT2 – you will not need to re-learn anything. But on the backend, there has been a lot of effort put into making this version of RoasTime the most stable ever.
It will also be far easier to implement new features – eventually including some related to machine learning and integrations with other roasters/platforms. You will already notice one new feature, however. RT3 uses RoR calculations to help predict your roast curves mid-roast.
