Please accept my apologize and try to understand.
The UPS PIco and UPiS have the same micro controller. Therefore 90-95 of firmware is the same. We are writing it structured so can be easy moved. However until we do not finish the PIco we do not have anything to move to UPiS. You have my promise that the UPiS is not dead and the firmware will be updated with the V2.0. But it will be a modified (adapted) version of PIco to it with most of functionality, and even some more. In a date when I will release the PIco final 1.0 I expect it in this months, the with one week will release the similar UPiS 2.0 based on it.
The most time consuming part that take us out of any time schedule also for the PIco is the Event Triggered Time Based ON/OFF scheduler, that will be also available for the UPiS.
Please also kindly notice that within September we plan to release the UPi2S, the new HAT version of the UPiS, but this time with different processor. It will be not compatible. After release of the UPiS Firmware of 2.0, we will not longer update the firmware for the UPiS, just correct some bugs if any.
UPiS is out kid, and we do not kill our kids !!!
My Warmest Regards
