AP-701 / AP-701C-M firmware release notes

PLEASE NOTE: We do not distribute the *.bin firmware-files for manual upgrading anymore - all firmware upgrade/downgrade of the 'Live Pen 2', 'AP-701' & 'AP-701C-M' pens are now performed automatically via our new 'Pen Fleet Manager Client for Windows' application (https://support.anoto.com/article/1908-anoto-pen-fleet-manager-client-for-windows)

If you require a specific version for your pens (other than the one that has been assigned), please get in touch with us @ support@anoto.com and we can look into getting that done for you. However, it is always recommended to run the latest firmware version on your pen(s) for the best performance.
