If you were lucky enough to grab the BETA binaries when they posted yesterday, you could be running 9.10 already. Otherwise, you’re stuck waiting for Garmin’s metered rollout of the 9.10 firmware update for the EDGE 530/830/1030/1030+*.
I’ve been running the 9.00 BETA for as long as it’s been out, and 8.63 before that, both without issue. Actually better than “without issue” because the constant sensor drops I was seeing pre-8.63 haven’t been nearly as bad; only noticed one drop during Saturday’s ride.
Few notables, including support for 12-spd Di2 which I’ve highlighted below. Although, I do have to say that I’m not a fan of the “Improved shifting sensor battery data fields” item. Just show me the % Garmin, I don’t need anything fancy here…
* 6.10 on the 1030+, but the gist is the same.

- Fixed device-to-device transfers
