Cumulus 1.8.4 beta available

Post by steve »

Build 547 now available:

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

- Added ET,UV and Solar Rad for Davis stations
- Added pressure range config for forecast
- Added config for FTP port number
- Improved Fine Offset rain rate calculation
- Display Davis transmitter battery status

Note - to see the Davis solar data, you need to select it on the Display Settings page (it then appears on the main screen). I have no way of knowing if it will produce sensible values.

Back up your data!

I forgot to document the fact that there are 3 new web tags to go with the solar data:

<#ET>
<#UV>
<#SolarRad>

- Fixed colour change for daily rain chart
- Increased pressure and ET resolution by 1 dp for Davis
- Added experimental forced VP barometer update (see station settings)

I've also changed the Fine Offset update interval to 10 seconds (although of course the data won't change this often) and attempted to fix the new rain rate calculation.

Hopefully improved Fine Offset rain rate calculation. It should stop the too-high values appearing, if nothing else.

Build 592 available:

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

Added check on station relative pressure setting at startup (Fine Offset) and ignore dubious reading.
Now saves backups of data files at the last ten startups, to make 'rewinding' a bit easier. This is not a substitute for taking your own backups!
