Any contributions are very welcome, whether they involve new content or editing of existing content. It will be very helpful to current and future users of Cumulus software if the Wiki is kept well-maintained and current. If you are interested then please contact forum user saratogaWX and ask for a Wiki account.

Cumulus MX Announcements and Download - PLEASE READ FIRST

From build 3044 the development baton passed to Mark Crossley. Mark has been responsible for all the Builds since. He has made the code available on GitHub. It is Mark's hope that others will join in this development, but at the very least he welcomes your ideas for future developments (see Cumulus MX Development suggestions).

WITHDRAWN DUE TO BUG IN TEMPERATURE CONVERSIONS

Release 3.10.0 - build 3115 is available for download.

This release sees major changes to the Cumulus MX dashboard settings screens, and even more so to the supplied default web site.

The settings screens have been reorganised, options which are not relevant to your configuration/station type will no longer be displayed. Many options that were previously only available by adding "read-only" values to Cumulus.ini are now configurable via the GUI in the relevant Advanced settings section.

The old default web site was getting a bit long in the tooth and a revamp was required. A user on the forum (@NeilThomas) kindly donated a new template that is both more modern looking and responsive for working well on mobile devices.

If you use the default web site - please read and understand all the changes before upgrading to this release

You can find more information on the web site changes in this wiki page.

Because of the changes to settings, some new options have been introduced and there values inferred from your existing settings. I advise everyone to double check all the station and internet settings are how you expect them to be after upgrading to this release.

An updated Raspberry Pi image should be available tomorrow.

The change list for this release is...
  • Fix: Catch error creating System Uptime counter on Windows
  • Fix: The Local web server is now brought up before initialising the station. This allows you to correct a misconfigured station without resorting to editing the Cumulus.ini file.
  • Fix: Diary Editor creating entries on the wrong day, and revamp the interface a bit
  • Fix: WLL day average temp stats on historic catch-up
  • Fix: GW1000 auto-discovery was triggering an erroneous IP address change
  • Fix: Cumulus MX shutdown when running as a system service is now orderly
  • Fix: The start-up ping now refreshes the DNS cache before every re-try to avoid using null entries cached before the internet comes up
  • New: Brand new default web site template courtesy of Neil Thomas. The original "legacy" web site is still included, but it has been moved to the /webfiles-legacy folder.
    - The new web site is now data file driven as opposed to all pages being processed and uploaded. The legacy web site has also been updated to use this method.
  • New: The previous Console log file is now copied to an "-old" file on start-up
  • New: For Davis WLL stations using weatherlink.com, Cumulus now checks and reports the operational status of weatherlink.com on start-up and if an error occurs accessing the service
  • New: Two web tags <#forumurl> and <#webcamurl>, which just return the respective URLs rather than the pre-canned HTML of <#forum> and <#webcam>
  • New: The start of a Display Options section under Station, which controls what data is displayed on the default web site, implementing some of the Cumulus 1 options
    - New web tags for this: <#Option_useApparent>, <#Option_showSolar>, <#Option_showUV>
  • Change: All the settings screens revamped, reorganised and extended.
    - Many of the settings are now context sensitive, only showing items relevant to your station and configuration.
    - Most of the previously config file "read-only" settings are now available in an Advanced section relevant to the configuration item. These settings are now read/write.
    - Many new Cumulus.ini configuration entries, and some now depreciated.
    - Virtually all the standard files that can be generated can now be controlled for enabling/disabling generation and FTP transfer independently.
    - Added more graph data series controls.
  • Change: The two graph config files availabledata.json and graphconfig.json are now only uploaded on program start-up and when the station config is changed.
  • Change: Dayfile, Monthly Log, and Extra log file editors now have a selectable page length, and a goto-page feature
  • Change: The default web site is now driven by a single data file (plus realtimegauges.txt), rather than every page being updated and uploaded each interval.
  • Change: The various charting pages now hide buttons for graphs that do not contain any data - both on the dashboard and default web site.
  • Change: Creation of the wxnow.txt file is now disabled by default for new installs
  • Change: Clock sync (Davis VP2 & Instromet) now occurs at 2 minutes past the hour selected
  • Change: Davis VP/VP2/Vue ReadReceptionStats now defaults to enabled for new installs
  • Change: The default output file format is now UTF-8 for new installs

I am pleased to announce a new utility program for Cumulus MX - CreateMissing v1.0.0

The utility will read your monthly log files and your dayfile.txt (if it exists). It will then compare the data:
  • If a day is missing from your dayfile, but present in your monthly logs, it will create a new dayfile record for you.
  • If a day has missing data - it may have been created with a old version of Cumulus - then it add those missing bits of data to the existing day record.
The link to the download and more information is on the software download page: https://cumuluswiki.org/a/Software#Create_Missing

Release 3.10.3 - build 3120 is available for download.

This release sees a number of bug fixes and improvements.

The default web page has matured a little and you will see an number of small improvements to screen handling especially on mobile devices. There is also a new page for the NOAA reports.

The web page menu system has also evolved, it is now contained in it's own file "menu.js", and the definition is much simplified. If you have customised the menu then in the future I suggest you do not modify the default menu.js, create another copy and alter the filename in setpagedata.js (there is a smapleMenu.js included as well which shows an example of extending the menu system).

If you use the default web site, then you will need to re-upload the whole of the /webfiles folder to your web site to take advantage of the improvements.

The change list for this release is...
  • Fix: Problem with setpagedata.js in "/legacy-webfiles"
  • Fix: Ecowitt GW1000 and clone auto-discovery extended to WH2650, WS1900, and Ambient clones
  • Fix: Ecowitt auto-discovery broken after a recent Ecowitt firmware update
  • Fix: Ecowitt WH45 battery status on firmware levels below 1.6.5
  • Fix: Blake-Larsen sunshine recorder, the SRsunshine.dat file was using user locale decode, it should always use dot decimal
  • Fix: MQTT only read the Update template file at start-up or if the filename was changed. It now reads the file at every update
  • Fix: Davis WLL was not calculating chill hours and heating/cooling degree days on catch-up
  • Fix: Add missing COM port setting for OS WM918/WMR928 stations
  • New: Adds Records Began Date to - Station Settings|General|Advanced
  • New: Adds support for GW1000 firmware 1.6.6
  • New: Default web site - You can now use the "data-cmxdata" attribute on any HTML element, not just spans. BUT note, ALL the innerHTML will get replaced with the JSON data.
  • New: Two new web tags that HTML encode the station description strings - <#locationenc>, <#longlocationenc>
  • New: Adds a NOAA Reports page to the default web site
  • New: Adds support for the EcoWitt WH35 8 channel leaf wetness sensor
    - Note that only channels 1-4 will be displayed on the dashboard
    - Extends the leaf wetness web tags with <#LeafWetness5> to <#LeafWetness8> added
    - samplestrings.ini adds leaf wetness captions 5-8
  • New: Experimental - Enables Battery Low alarm for WMR100/WMR928 stations
  • Changed: The Default web site menu system has been rewritten. It is now all defined in the file menu.js

Release 3.11.2 - build 3131 is available for download.

As well as some fixes for bugs reported in v3.11.0/1, this release sees the Alarms getting some more love. Two new alarms are added for HTTP and MySQL uploads.

Configuring logging options via the GUI is now "sticky" across sessions - ie the settings are saved to Cumulus.ini. This change is primarily because new or inexperienced users would expect that behaviour and the original behaviour was confusing to lots of people.

The default web site sees a couple of change too, so if you use this feature you will need to re-upload the /webfiles folder

The full release description:
  • Fix: Send email failing if email logging is not enabled
  • Fix: Solar Rad colour now displays as selected on first load in the Selectachart on the dashboard and default website
  • Fix: Handlebars JS script updated due to severe security risk on previous version
  • Fix: GW1000 for 433, 868, 915 MHz variants
  • Fix: Bug in MySQL catch-up
  • Change: Setting of ALL logging options via the GUI is now "sticky" - i.e. preserved across runs of Cumulus MX
  • Change: Many of the main settings screens now alert to to the first invalid settings in a message, and the tree containing the error is highlighted in red:
    • Program Settings
    • Station Settings
    • Internet Settings
    • Third Party Settings
    • Extra Sensor Settings
    • Calibration Settings
    • NOAA Settings
    • MySQL Settings
  • Change: If any of the base units (wind, temp, rain, pressure) are changed via Station Settings (for instance during the initial configuration), then all the thresholds and base values associated with that unit are reset to the defaults for the new unit
  • Change: The main dashboard page now only shows alarm indicators for enabled alarms
  • Change: Alarm Settings page now has added screen reader attributes (not visible on the page)
  • Change: All HighCharts based pages (Dashboard and default web site) now use the latest stable release of HighCharts which should fix the reported full screen issue
  • New: Implements two new alarms for HTTP uploads failing, and MySQL uploads failing
    • These plus Data Spike, have an additional setting via Cumulus.ini to set a trigger threshold.
      This defaults to 1, so the alarm will trigger immediately. If set to 5, then it will take 5 trigger events happen within the Latch time to set the alarm.
      The idea is to prevent an occasional error from triggering the alarm
    • Cumulus.ini settings:

      Code: Select all

      		[Alarms]
      		SpikeAlarmTriggerCount=1
      		HttpUploadAlarmTriggerCount=1
      		MySqlUploadAlarmTriggerCount=1
  • New: Web tags - <#HttpUploadAlarm>, <#MySqlUploadAlarm>
  • New: Data Stopped, Data Spike,HTTP upload, MySQL upload emails now also report the error that triggered the alarm in the email text
  • New: Adds two new variables for Extra Web Files - <noaayearfile> & <noaamonthfile> to upload the last year and month reports. Like the day file variable, it only makes sense to use these with the EOD option
  • New: You can now limit the real time MySQL table inserts to once a minute. Useful if you run a short real time interval (say 5 seconds), and do not want to flood your MySQL real time table with many rows that hardly change.

Re: Cumulus MX Announcements and Download - PLEASE READ FIRST

Release 3.12.0 - build 3141 is available for download.

This is a larger than usual release and sees quite a number of changes to Cumulus MX.

Please read the notes in Updates,txt (attached) carefully before updating to this release, and check all your settings afterwards.

The major new features are highlighted below, but please read the Updates.txt file (attached) for all the details...

Configuration Wizard
This release sees the introduction of a new "first time" configuration wizard to lead new users through setting up the basic settings required to get up and running. It does not allow you to configure everything, nor things like extra sensors, you need to use the individual settings pages to do that.

New Stations Supported
Cumulus MX now supports two new stations using the HTTP protocol - HTTP (Ecowitt), and HTTP (Wunderground). The primary use for these is when using Ecowitt base station that support adding a Custom upload server. Always use the HTTP (Ecowitt) where you can it supports many more features. These stations also provide an easy way way for people creating their own weather stations to upload their data to Cumulus.

Add Extra Sensors to Existing Stations
Cumulus now has the ability to use the new stations above in addition to your primary station. This is configured through Extra Sensors, the HTTP stations when operating in this mode will only provide "extra sensor" data to your existing station. So if you have say a Davis VP2 as your primary station, you can now go and buy a cheap GW1000 and some additional sensors and Cumulus will combine their data into your main station data.

MQTT Supports User defined Topics
The way MQTT is supported has changed. If you use the MQTT feature in Cumulus, we will need to edit your configuration for this release. The template files now allow to define your own topics, and what data you put on each topic. Please have a look at Updates.txt file and the provide templates which are in JSON format and hopefully fairly self documenting.

Cumulus now supports Local Copy of the web site
Instead of having to add all the default files to the Extra Files settings if you just wanted to copy them locally rather than FTP, Cumulus now has a built-in option to locally copy. Enabled via a single tick box, you can then select each of the default files for copying just like you could before for FTP.

What's Fixed
The following fixes are included in v3.12.0...
  • Fix: The Realtime FTP - particularly SFTP - reconnection code has been rewritten to make it more robust
  • Fix: SteelSeries gauges data mouseovers not working on the dashboard interface
  • Fix: Davis WLL, bug in Chill Hours calculation during archive data catch-up. Each interval increment was 60x larger than it should be
