This topic should be considered as "temporary" for "ongoing inventory" of Firmware versions.

Only users with "unkown" firmware versions on January 8,2010 are mentionned here.
The other users who have "known" firmware versions, who don't give any problems, doesn't appear in this inventory!

The complete updated list could be consulted in our "Known" users database:
http://www.autopano.net/wiki-en/action/view/Merlin-Orion-Papywizard_users_feedback

For the upgrading procedure, I have assembled some explanations ("how-to"), the small software for the upgrade "MCFirmwareLoader" and the new firmware version "020681" into my website:
http://www.papymerlin.com/merlin-firmware-upgrade/

I wish to thank "Teleskop Austria" and "Ursa Minor" for their cooperation into solving this problem !
