Cumulus 1.8.3 beta available

Post by steve » Wed 22 Oct 2008 1:44 pm

This version (build 472) has a few bug fixes and a few new features, please try it and let me know how you get on. Back up your data!

- Changed "kph" to "km/h"
- Changed graphs left axis increment for rainfall in inches
- Changed 'gust' in realtime.txt back to 'latest gust'
- Fixed temp/pressure/rain last hour and rate, during startup
- Fixed wind direction offset crash
- Added 'build' web tag
- Wunderground 'rapid fire' option
- 'Close on suspend' option

Note that the 'rain last hour' improvement adds a 'total rainfall' field to the data log files, and may take up to an hour after you first run 1.8.3 before it starts working correctly.

I've uploaded a new build (473) which fixes the problem where the hourly rain could suddenly become impossibly high. Which, oddly, only I seemed to be hitting.

I've uploaded a new build (480), with the following changes:

- added total rain count to data log files
- Improved UI response for VP/VP2 users
- Attempt to solve problem of 'Please wait' window not closing (and fix progress bar) for Fine Offset users
- Added 'recent max gust', 'heat index', and 'humidex' to realtime.txt
- Added <#humidex> web tag

There is now some experimental support for La Crosse WS2300 weather stations, so if anyone reading this has one, please do try it. It doesn't yet support downloading the history data from the logger.

Please note that there is a bug in the 1.8.3 beta which means that it will crash at startup if used for a fresh installation. I'll fix this before the release version.

Build 513 now available.

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

- (#29) Fixed problem where data logs don't get created on first run (Oregon only)

I'm hoping this will be the last beta of 1.8.3, assuming no other problems appear.
