I got some requests from users to update this firmware to Marlin 2.0.2 or 2.0.3 (bugfix).

I tried to compile both versions but due the updated libraries used in the distribution, the final binary file was too big for the small Ender 3 board. Although I can fit the newer versions of the firmware in the board memory this will force me to remove part of the functionality, typically commands available from the LCD Menu.

After a carefull review of 2.0.2 and 2.0.3 release notes I found that none of the updates/fixes would improve or impact Ender 3 performance, therefore, trimming the firmware just to fit the newer versions in the memory would not worth.

I will keep following the future releases of Marlin and If I see any significant improvements for the Ender 3 I will release an updated version of the firmware, otherwise I will keep the older version that is stable with hundreds of printing hours accumulated.
