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).

A minor fix for v3.12.0, the dashboard Gauges page does not work properly for some configurations. The zip file attached here fixes this.

These updated files will be incorporated into the next release, but meantime if you have the issue you can replace the two affected files in v3.12.0 with these.

Edit - sorry a fix to the fix. New zip "-2.zip" attached.

Release 3.12.1 - build 3143 is available for download.

What is fixed
  • Fix: Issues with the temperatures on the Gauges page (and adds Feels like)
  • Fix: Hourly rain value when the rain counter is reset
  • Fix: Limit real time MySQL inserts to 1 minute was not saving correctly
  • Fix: Alarm threshold counts not being saved to Cumulus.ini
  • Fix: Trend values being set to invalid values on new installs
  • Fix: GW1000 station, incorrect decoding of WH51 battery status
  • Fix: Davis WLL ET value for the day being reset to zero on MX restart
What has changed
  • - Change: Removes the restriction that you could not add Ecowitt Extra sensors to an Ecowitt main station
  • Change: The Calibration Settings page has been re-organised
  • Change: Settings screen more compact for mobile screens, added Aria screen reader attributes to Internet Settings
What is New
  • - New: Experimental - Add HTTP Station type for Ambient consoles or WH2600/Observer IP
    - Set-up your Customized Server in the Console or AWnet app to:

    Code: Select all

    		Protocol	: Ambient Weather
    		Server 		: <hostname_or_ip_of_CMX>
    		Path		: /station/ambient?
    		Port		: 8998 (or whatever you have configured CMX for)
    		Interval	: 20 (seconds)
    
  • New: Experimental - You can now add extra sensors to your existing station using an Ambient console or WH2600/Observer IP.
    - Set-up your Customized Server in the Console or AWnet app to:

    Code: Select all

    		Protocol	: Ambient Weather
    		Server 		: <hostname_or_ip_of_CMX>
    		Path		: /station/ambientextra?
    		Port		: 8998 (or whatever you have configured CMX for)
    		Interval	: 20 (seconds)
    
  • New: Adds configuration help for the HTTP Upload stations (Ecowitt, Ambient, Wunderground) to the Wizard, Station Settings, and Extra Sensors dashboard pages
  • New: Implements Alarm threshold counts for Sensor Contact Lost, Data Connection Lost, Low Batteries
The support for Ambient consoles is flagged as "experimental" because it has had very little testing, and most of that from a protocol emulation. So I'm flagging it until I have more confirmation (or not!) from users that it is working as expected.

Release 3.13.0 - build 3145 is available for download.

The big change for this release is the addition of a new station type for WeatherFlow Tempest stations. This feature has been written and contributed by Doug Summersgill :clap:

Note, this station type currently ONLY supports the WeatherFlow Tempest stations.

What is fixed
  • Fix: Realtime FTP, now correctly clears the RT FTP in progress flag
  • Fix: Station Settings, Units, Advanced not being saved correctly
  • Fix: The Log editors (dayfile, data, extradata), now handle returned errors correctly
  • Fix: Rain not being counted with really small bucket sizes
What is new
  • New: Adds support the WeatherFlow Tempest weather stations (contributed by Doug Summersgill)
  • New: HTTP Ecowitt: Adds GW1000 Firmware Version extraction to both main station and extra sensors
What has changed
  • Change: Davis WLL, low battery warning for WLL device changed from 5.2 to 5.4V (1.35V per cell)
  • Change: Ecowitt battery decoding nightmare continues and evolves as we discover what they really send as opposed to what they say they send!
  • Change: Monthly NOAA reports now stop at the first day with an error in either the dayfile, or the monthly log file. Previously it only stopped at the first dayfile error
  • Change: Internet Settings now works better when enabling/disabling FTP globally and in the interval settings
  • Change: Ecowitt GW1000 now detects WS80 ultrasonic wind sensors and changes the update rate to 4 seconds (WS80 updates every 4.75 secs)

Patch Release 3.13.2 - build 3147 is available for download.

This is a minor patch for Ecowitt HTTP protocol users with CO₂ sensors.

The only file changed since 3.13.1 is the main executable - CumulusMXC.exe

What is fixed
  • Fix: HTTP Station Ecowitt - not decoding all CO₂ sensor values correctly, again!
What has changed
  • The CumulusMX distribution zip no longer contains the required empty folders /backup, /data, /MXdiags. These folders will now be created on start-up if they are missing.
