Marshall Multiroom speakers - firmware / changelog



Does anyone know where to find information about firmware updates for the Marshall Multi-room speakers? (Stanmore, Acton, Woburn).
Like a changelog or latest firmware date?

I want to find out if Marshall is even working at fixing all the known problems at all or if they just totally abandoned these products.

My current firmware: 

Marshall Stanmore Multi-Room 
Firmware: 1561616839
Chromecast v: 1.28.102057

Marshall Acton Multi-Room
Firmware: 1561617046
Chromecast v : 1.28.102057

I'm seeing the exact same numbers for my Marshall Stanmore Multi-Room as of 15/10/2021.
It feels like these speakers have become abondonware....

A shame, because these would be wonderful speakers if it weren't for the connectivity issues.

It feels like these speakers have become abondonware.... YES IT IS, MARSHALL DOES NOT CARE ABOUT ALL PROBLEMS WE HAVE....

I have 3 Woburns and 3 stanmores, they are realy hard to handle!! DO NOT BUY!

For any one who comes across this post looking for a way to keep these speakers alive, my advice would be to hook them up to a single-board computer (e.g. Raspberry Pi) through an audio cape (e.g. HiFiBerry DAC+ Zero), running music streaming software (e.g. VolumIO or balena-sound).

This way the connectivity component becomes independent from the speakers and can be updated seperately. It's even possible to add new features such as an ethernet port for wired connectivity.

I have the same problem, exactly the same firmware number. Please let me know if anyone can resolve this issue.
