@Yahuba can you please provide more explanation of what this issue is?

According to the Test Script: 3.2.4 Changelog
Verify that on first launch that the Changelog dialog appears. Close it. Note that on subsequent launches of Cura the Changelog will not be shown.

I have never seen this screen appear in any of my tests.

@Yahuba I think this is now fixed in our test procedure by removing any previous settings. Can you confirm if it now appears.

I was just able to reproduce this in Debian Stretch using version 2.6.29.
I removed previous installation of Cura2 using the following commands:
sudo apt-get remove cura2
rm -rf ~/.cache/cura2_lulzbot ~/.config/cura2_lulzbot ~/.local/share/cura2_lulzbot

Re-installed for testing and did not see the Change Tool Head screen appear.

re-tested in 2.6.30 in Debian Stretch and Change Tool Head dialogue appeared.

UPDATE: Change Tool Head dialogue only appeared after the the first time I installed 2.6.30. All tests after this have failed to show Change Tool Head dialogue at launch despite removing the software as instructed in the script (same steps I described above).

In my testing on Ubuntu, this was working up to and including version 2.6.24 and started failing (no toolhead dialog appearing) in 2.6.25.

It looks like this change was due to T1157, and is now working as intended. It should only ask to upgrade the firmware if the toolhead has actually changed.
I will update the test procedure to reflect this.
