Build 861 available:

http://www.nybbles.co.uk/downloads/beta ... sSetup.exe

- Fix problem where inside temp graph colour setting was lost over a restart

I'm hoping to make this build the 1.8.8 release version very soon, assuming no major problems appear.

Build 865 available:

- Ensure dew point is still calculated when humidity is 100%

I think there's another fix in this build, but I can't remember what it was.

Build 871 available:

http://www.nybbles.co.uk/downloads/beta ... sSetup.exe

- Allow custom forecast strings (for forecasts generated by Cumulus)

Instructions for use:

In the folder where you installed Cumulus, you will find a file called 'samplestrings.ini'. Take a copy of this, leave it in the Cumulus installation folder, and name it 'strings.ini'. The file contains the strings used for the forecasts, e.g.:

Code: Select all

forecast23=Precipitation at frequent intervals
Edit the string as desired, e.g.:

Code: Select all

forecast23=Raining again!
or even:

Code: Select all

forecast23=Il pleut! 
I might be persuaded to extend this facility to allow other aspects of Cumulus to be customised/translated ;)

Build 874 available:

http://www.nybbles.co.uk/downloads/beta ... sSetup.exe

- Truncate custom tweets at 140 characters
- Allow thickness of chart legend symbols to be configured (see Display settings)
- Added 'max wind speed' option for La Crosse (via cumulus.ini setting)
- Select-A-Graph now has gust as well as peak gust

To use the cumulus.ini setting for the La Crosse max wind speed add to the [station] section

LCMaxWind=X

where X is the maximum (uncalibrated) wind speed you want to allow. The value you supply should be in metres/second, regardless of what wind unit you are using in Cumulus.

The Beaufort descriptions are also configurable now via strings.ini, I think that's probably new in this build (874) too...

Build 875 available:

http://www.nybbles.co.uk/downloads/beta ... sSetup.exe

I thought I would add one more set of strings to strings.ini before I make the beta into the main release version. The pressure/temperature trend strings are now configurable (see samplestrings.ini).

There was an error with missing spaces in the default values of some of the trend strings in build 875. I've fixed this and uploaded a new version, but it came out with the same build number. So, if you downloaded build 875 before about 20:00 UTC, you may want to grab it again.
