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).

Version 3.5.1 - Build 3072 is now available for download.

I've pushed this one out early as it fixes a bug in 3.5.0. The "fixed" Stop second instance code was being a bit too zealous, and ignoring the config flag to disable it, hence you could never run two copies of 3.5.0 running on the same computer. As the record set web tags were easy to implement I have included them too.
  • Fix for the "Stop second instance" option now working a bit too well, you could not disable it!
  • Implements the "record set" web tags. These will be set from the time of the record until a timeout value (default 24 hours).
    You can change the default timeout by adding a entry to Cumulus.ini
    [Station]
    RecordSetTimeoutHrs=24
The web tags enabled are: TempRecordSet, WindRecordSet, RainRecordSet, HumidityRecordSet, PressureRecordSet, HighTempRecordSet,
LowTempRecordSet, HighAppTempRecordSet, LowAppTempRecordSet, HighHeatIndexRecordSet, LowWindChillRecordSet, HighMinTempRecordSet,
LowMaxTempRecordSet, HighDewPointRecordSet, LowDewPointRecordSet, HighWindGustRecordSet, HighWindSpeedRecordSet, HighRainRateRecordSet,
HighHourlyRainRecordSet, HighDailyRainRecordSet, HighMonthlyRainRecordSet, HighHumidityRecordSet, HighWindrunRecordSet, LowHumidityRecordSet,
HighPressureRecordSet, LowPressureRecordSet, LongestDryPeriodRecordSet, LongestWetPeriodRecordSet, HighTempRangeRecordSet, LowTempRangeRecordSet

Version 3.5.2 - Build 3073 is now available for download.

Primarily a fix release for MQTT issues, it does include some other stuff...
  • Fixes and improvements to MQTT processing
  • Adds new Cumulus.ini only setting for MQTT to force IPv4/IPv6 connectivity (default is System decides which to use). This setting is not exposed in the admin interface.

    Code: Select all

    	[MQTT]
    	IPversion=0   (0=default, 4=IPv4, 6=IPv6)
  • Adds Sensor Contact lost flag/alarm for Davis WLL devices
  • GW1000 raw Lux value is now available via the <#Light> weg tag like other Fine Offset stations
  • Adds three new web tags...
    <#timeJavaScript> - returns the current date/time in JavaScript milliseconds. Example use = "var dt = Date(<#timeJavaScript>)"
    <#directionTM> - returns todays max wind gust direction as a compass point
    <#directionYM> - returns yesterdays max wind gust direction as a compass point
The updated files from 3.5.1 are...

Code: Select all

	\CumulusMX.exe
	\MQTTnet.dll

Version 3.5.4 - Build 3075 is now available for download.

This is mainly a bug fix release.

But there three new features of note:
  1. All web tags that return decimal values now support the "rc=y" parameter to force them into returning a dot decimal string
  2. It adds a new temperature value - Feels Like
  3. It adds a low battery alarm for some stations
I know a lot of people do not like the widespread use of "feels like" temperatures on commercial forecasts, but it is prevalent, so I have added to CMX. Use it or not! Some of your site visitors may like it?

For now it only provides the current value, so no highs/lows, records, logging of the value etc. We'll see how it goes.

The change list is...
  • Fix for bearing zero on the interface "Now" page
  • Fix for admin interface charts popup
  • Fix for "normal" Extra files not being FTP'd at rollover interval, only those flagged as EOD were being transferred
  • Another attempt to rationalise the Moon Phase messages - each quarter (new, 1st, full, 3rd) should now show for approximately 12 hours either side of the event
  • All web tags that produce decimal number output now support the "rc=y" option
  • Additional Davis WLL health info dumped in the MXdiags log on start-up and every 10 minutes if debug logging is on (voltages, uptimes, WiFi RSSI etc)
    Logs warnings to the command line console and log file if voltages are too low
  • Adds BatteryLow Alarm for WLL (Console [if you have an API key] & Tx), VP2 (Console & Tx), GW1000 (Tx), and adds a new web tag <#BatteryLowAlarm>
  • Adds new web tag <#feelslike> - calculated using the JAG/TI formula used in the UK, USA, Canada etc. Currently there are no stats for this value
New web tags...

Code: Select all

<#BatteryLowAlarm>
<#feelslike>
Plus all decimal tags now accept "rc=y"
The updated files are...

	\interface\alarmsettings.html

Version 3.6.0 - Build 3076 is now available for download.

IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR MySQL USERS
This build uses an updated database schema. BEFORE installing this version you MUST update your database tables to add the new columns used by version 3.6.0 (or later)
I have provided a small SQL script that will update the existing tables for you, it is attached to this message.

There is also an updated version of the ImportCumulusFile PHP script v4.1 to support this release in the Wiki.

The update list is quite large...
  • Fix for records editors failing to read log files from Cumulus 1 versions
  • Fix for Ecowitt GW-1000 devices to bypass the auto-discovery mechanism if it is disabled in the config
  • NOAA reports now include degree, minutes, seconds symbols
  • Slightly enhanced program termination logging
  • Implements highs/low/records for Feels like
    • Changes to ini files to add Feels Like - Adds [FeelsLike] section to today.ini, yesterday.ini, month.ini, year.ini, alltime.ini, monthlyalltime.ini
    • Changes to log files
      monthlog.txt - adds field 27, feels like
      dayfile.txt - adds fields 47-50, high feels like, high time, low, low time
    • Changes to the MYSQL database tables are required
      Adds column FeelsLike to the Monthly table
      Adds columns MaxFeelsLike, TMaxFeelsLike, MinFeelsLike, TMinFeelsLike to the Dayfile table
    • New web tags

      Code: Select all

      		<#HighFeelsLikeRecordSet>
      		<#LowFeelsLikeRecordSet>
      		<#ByMonthFeelsLikeHT>
      		<#ByMonthFeelsLikeLT>
      		<#ByMonthFeelsLikeL>
      		<#ByMonthFeelsLikeH>
      		<#YearFeelsLikeHD>
      		<#YearFeelsLikeLD>
      		<#YearFeelsLikeHT>
      		<#YearFeelsLikeLT>
      		<#YearFeelsLikeH>
      		<#YearFeelsLikeL>
      		<#MonthFeelsLikeHD>
      		<#MonthFeelsLikeLD>
      		<#MonthFeelsLikeHT>
      		<#MonthFeelsLikeLT>
      		<#MonthFeelsLikeH>

      		<#TfeelslikeTL>
      
    • Updated record editors
    • Updated log file viewers/editors
  • Adds battery and reception data for Davis WLL. It now logs battery and input voltages to the MXdiags.
    These are updated every 15 minutes and require you to have a WeatherLink Pro subscription.
    The WLL unlike the VP2 console provides individual data for each transmitter
    • The following web tags have been updated to accept a "tx=n" parameter, where n=1-8 and equals the desired transmitter id.
      Omitting the tx= parameter or using tx=0 makes the tag function as before for Davis VP2 systems

      Code: Select all

      		<#DavisTotalPacketsMissed tx=n>
      		<#DavisNumberOfResynchs tx=n>
      		<#DavisMaxInARow tx=n>
      		<#DavisNumCRCerrors tx=n>
    • New web tags for WLL transmitter reception percentage and RSSI figure, these must be used with the tx=n parameter

      Code: Select all

      		<#DavisReceptionPercent tx=n>   - defaults to tx=1, tx=0 is unused
      		<#DavisTxRssi tx=n>             - defaults to tx=1, use tx=0 to get the WLL WiFi RSSI
  • Updated ExportMySQL.exe to version 1.1.0
    • Incorporates the new Feels Like data
    • Uses compass point "-" for Calm
    • Reads customised compass points from strings.ini if set

Code: Select all

	\CumulusMX.exe
	\dayfileheader.txt
