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).

Release 3.28.2 - build 3279 - is available for download.

Note: If you use custom MySQL uploads, please double check the settings after upgrading to this release. v3.28.1 had some issues with the configuration page and may have altered some settings from their intended values.

New
  • Adds two new web tags <#StationFreeMemory> and <#StationRuntime>
    • StationFreeMemory: Shows the station free memory for Davis WLC, Ecowitt GW1100/20000 (using HTTP)
    • StationRuntime: Shows the station uptime in seconds for Davis WLL/WLC, Ecowitt GW1100/20000 (using HTTP)
  • Now implements a basic check of the latest monthly log file on start-up to remove any nulls from the end
Changed
  • Custom Minutes MySQL commands can now have the interval defined per command rather than globally
Fixed
  • Ecowitt Cloud station: Fix some errors decoding Ecowitt cloud API.
  • Davis WeatherLink Cloud, no longer requires a Pro subscription to pull current data. Quite an extensive rewrite!
  • Extra Files using log filename templates missed the last log entry at month rollover as they switched to the new month immediately
  • Fix missing units in alarm email messages
  • Custom Timed MySQL commands sometimes fired immediately after saving the configuration
  • Ecowitt historic catch-up was missing CO2, CO2 pm, CO2 T/H, leaf wetness, and extra T/H dewpoint values

Release 3.28.3 - build 3280 - is available for download.

Released a bit faster than normal due to the crash in v3.28.2 when starting a brand new unconfigured installation.

New
  • Adds Ecowitt local GW1000 API to the web tag <#StationFreeMemory>. Known to work with GW1100 (v2.3.1) and GW2000 (v3.1.1) so far
  • Adds a new web tag <#ExtraStationFreeMemory> to avoid clashes with the main station and a Ecowitt HTTP station used for extra sensors
  • Adds a check for the raincounter suddenly increasing (more than 25mm or 1 inch)
Fixed
  • Ecowitt Cloud decoding of Soil Moisture values
  • Ecowitt Cloud add missing decode of CO2 temp/humidity values
  • Crash for new installs when the monthly log file does not exist
  • Setting Ecowitt custom server settings when used as an Extra Sensor station
  • The Monthly Records editor values from the log file showed the previous months values for monthly totals like Total Rainfall etc.

There is a new version of CreateMissing available - v1.4.3

This fixes an issue where missing derived temperatures in the day were always returned in Celsius. The new version will convert them to Fahrenheit if required.

Patch release 3.28.5 - build 3282 - is now available.

This fixes a bug in the rain jump detection in v3.28.4.

If you have already upgraded to v3.28.4, I suggest you install v3.28.5 as soon as possible.

A new version of Cumulus MX is now in beta testing. Version 4 moves away from the old Microsoft .Net Framework and on to the new fully supported .NET 8.0 platform.

Please read this topic for more information on setting up v4 and migrating from v3 to v4.

The change log for this initial beta (b4017) is as follows:

New
  • Moon Image now supports transparent shadows
  • The -install/-unistall command line switches now support both Windows and Linux
    • Under Linux run > sudo dotnet CumulusMX.dll -install -user <username> [-port <port_number>] [-lang <lang-code>]
    • Windows install as a service now self-elevates and requests UAC
  • Implements encryption of the credentials in the cumulus.ini file
  • Experimental Gmail OATH 2.0 authentication
  • New web tag for the average temperature of the previous 24 hours from now: <#TempAvg24Hrs>
  • Cumulus backups are now zipped
  • Add Enable option to Extra Web Files so you can now save entries but not have them active
  • Ecowitt - added firmware update check on start-up and once a day at 13:00
    • New Firmware Alarm to support this
    • New web tag <#FirmwareAlarm>
  • Adds new web tags for temperature means

    Code: Select all

    	<#ByMonthTempAvg mon=[1-12]>        Mean for requested month over the entire history. Omit the mon parameter for the current month
    	<#MonthTempAvg m=[1-12] y=[YYYY]>   Mean for the requested specific month. Omit the parameters for the current month
    	<#YearTempAvg y=[YYYY]>             Mean for the requested year. Omit the y parameter for the current year
    
Changed
  • Now requires Microsoft .Net 8.0 rather than mono to run under Linux and MacOS
  • All data files are now written/read as invariant - dayfile, monthly log files, extra log files, AirLink, and custom log files
    • NOTE: Custom log files may require the user to alter their configuration to use comma separators and add the rc=y parameter to numeric web tags
  • Monthly log files now renamed to "[yyyyMM]log.txt" to remove localised month name - and now sortable in the file system!
  • Added MigrateData3to4 utility.
    Basic workflow:
    • Clean install v4
    • Copy v3 Cumulus.ini to root
    • Copy v3 /data and /Reports folders to v4 install
    • Rename the /data folder to /datav3
    • Run MigrateData3to4
    • Done!
  • Removed previously deprecated web tags
    CO2-24h, CO2-pm2p5, CO2-pm2p5-24h, CO2-pm10, CO2-temp, CO2-hum
  • Loading dayfile now continues on error and reports total errors - only the first 20 errors are logged
  • You now only set the Ecowitt MAC/IMEI address in one place for the various station types
    • In Local API settings for GW1000 type
    • In Cloud Access API for Cloud and HTTP station types
Fixed
  • Problems when using a 9am rollover in the records editors for values from the monthly log files
  • Select-a-Period charts not respecting the interval dates: Air Quality, CO₂, Soil Moisture, Leaf Wetness
  • Calibration Limits not changing when the user changes units - eg initial install
  • Potential fix for corruption at the end of all data log files when shutting down
  • Error that the username is not set when sending email to a server that requires no authentication
  • Improvement to GW1000 API reconnects
  • Improved web socket initial connection to send data immediately on dashboard/now/gauges connection
  • Fix for soil moisture conversion from percentage to cb in Weather Cloud uploads

Sorry folks, but a debug version of CumulusMX.exe v3.28.6 found its way into the original CumulusMXDis3283.zip file.

I have updated the download; the zip is now called CumulusMXDist3283a.zip
If you previously downloaded CumulusMXDist3283.zip, the only file that has changed and you need to replace is CumulusMX.exe
