Cumulus 1.9.0 beta available

Postby steve » Sun May 16, 2010 10:46 am

Cumulus 1.9.0 beta (build 934) is now available.

Changes from 1.8.9:

- new webtags - timehhmmss and currentwdir

<#timehhmmss> The current time. Example format: 18:30:27
<#currentwdir> Current wind bearing as a compass point - e.g. ESE

- add cloudbase and average wind direction (compass) to realtime.txt

52 wind direction (average) - example: NNW
53 Cloudbase - example: 2040
54 Cloudbase units - example: ft

(Numbering is from 1)

- changed to 'new' Twitter authentication method (OAuth)

Twitter will stop accepting "basic authentication" (as used by Cumulus 1.8.9 and earlier) at the end of June 2010. Everyone who tweets via Cumulus will need to change to 1.9.0 by then.

Edit: They eventually turned off basic authentication at the end of August.
