REVRobotics CANEncoder Has No SetPosition()

In http://www.revrobotics.com/sparkmax-software/#client-installation-instructions Firmware Release Notes it says:

  • Calling the constructor no longer resets the encoder count. This must be done manually by running CANEncoder.setPosition()

But in the JAVA API 1.0.28 there’s no such function. We get this error:
“The method setPosition() is undefined for the type CANEncoderJava(67108964)”

Any idea what is happening?

Thanks,

SetPosition() is part of the 1.1.26 beta release. You’ll need to update to have the method available.

Ah I see now, I missed that the Beta was a newer version than what I had.
When will it be promoted to non-Beta?
Thanks!
