Yes, 157 is beta firmware.
You should stick to the beta forum to provide your feedback.

When will the update be released?
The update will be installed automatically or shall I do something?

The function that the valves can switch the boiler ON is really important for me

Beta forum isn't closed, unless they removed you (but they didn't/can't revert your firmware).
@MarcoGT: I'm not working for Netatmo, but everybody seems to agree that the latest update this week does what it's supposed to do, so you probably won't have to wait too long. Updates are installed automatically, but it can take several hours depending on the number of valves and the radio connection strength (the better the signal, the faster the valves will update when available).

Update.
Now the system work well.
I did the calibration few time of the valves that not close, but only the last, when the valve was completely open (down), solve the problem.
I don't know why but now the valve close well the radiator and not heating in the room if no required.

So last FW work well for control the boiler by the valves.

I have another suggestion to the both options.
Actually the valves do not turn on the boiler, we all now that. Netatmo promises that there will be a second option where the valves can control the boiler. (Hopefully each valve will have PID control).

The "AutoBalance" idea of netatmo, where the control the heatflow of the hot water isn't that bad. Problem here for us is that there maybe is no hot water in the pipes, because the thermostat didn't switch on the boiler for to long.

So my suggestion would be:
Merge both options/ideas. The system should TRY the AutoBalance to see if there is hot water in the pipes. When the temperature sensor measures a temperature rise (within x minutes) in the room and the boiler is off, than there is hot water in the pipes, so no powered boiler necessary. If the temperature does not rise, than it is necessary to switch the boiler on to heat the room.

I think this would be the right way to implement this with a central heating system.

H4nc’s suggestion i agree with. Could be smarter than the Netatmo “2 option” thing, who I am waiting for.
