Cumulus 1.9.4 beta available

Postby steve » Thu Feb 28, 2013 11:58 am

As of 27th October 2013, Cumulus 1.9.4 is out of beta and is now the latest release version. See the announcement and the downloads page


Cumulus 1.9.4 beta build 1061 is available.

  • Initial support for Instromet weather stations. See http://instromet.co.uk/
    This has had limited testing so far and is likely to require bug fixes and further enhancement. Note that only current Instromet loggers (i.e. 2013 models onwards) will work with Cumulus
  • Change row highlight colour on dayfile.txt editor to make more obvious
  • Show 'wet bulb' as mouseover on dew point figure on main screen
  • Ensure 'today's rain' chart axis always starts at zero
  • Don't try to process a standard template file if it's been deleted
  • Allow 'EES' for 'ESE' in easyweather.dat to work around bug in someone else's software
  • Added logging to debug.log of entries read from easyweather.dat
  • Individual 'bad' sensor readings from Fine Offset no longer cause all data to be discarded. Watch out for possible bugs!
  • Support for HTTP proxies - completely untested and will probably need further work. Feedback requested!

Cumulus 1.9.4 beta build 1062 is available.

  • Fix 'create missing' bug in dayfile.txt editor when 0900/1000 rollover in use
  • Make sure PWS weather responses get logged
  • Change Instromet logger interval if changed in Cumulus, not just at start up
  • Web tag <#RecentTS>. Takes parameters like the 'recent data' web tags (e.g. <#RecentOutsideTemp>) and gives the timestamp of the data that will be returned for those web tags with the supplied parameters (it may not have the data for the exact time specified). Format can be specified in the usual way with the 'format' parameter.

    Example:

    Using the existing tag like this <#RecentOutsideTemp h=1 m=1> will give the nearest available temperature on or after one hour and one minute ago.
    The new tag <#RecentTS h=1 m=1> will give the time and date of the nearest available data on or after one hour and one minute ago.
  • 'Replaced Comma' versions of the 'recent history' web tags (the others are integers):
    <#RCRecentOutsideTemp>
    <#RCRecentWindSpeed>
    <#RCRecentWindGust>
    <#RCRecentWindLatest>
    <#RCRecentWindChill>
    <#RCRecentDewPoint>
    <#RCRecentHeatIndex>
    <#RCRecentPressure>
    <#RCRecentRainToday>
    <#RCRecentUV>
  • Select-A-Graph now has units in titles
  • Calibration setting for wet bulb temp (when read directly from station)

Cumulus 1.9.4 beta build 1070 is available.

  • Make sure main window is re-enabled if Fine Offset station not responding at start up
  • Option to turn off reporting of 'lost sensor contact' for Fine Offset stations. Add a line to the [Station] section of cumulus.ini:

    ReportLostSensorContact=0

  • Optional parameter (dp) on <#latitude> and <#longitude> web tags. If supplied, instead of the usual web-encoded text format with degrees/minutes/seconds, the result is in decimal degrees to the specified number of decimal places. E.g

    <#latitude> gives "N&nbsp;59&deg;&nbsp;14&#39;&nbsp;33&quot;" for N 59 14 33
    <#latitude dp=5> gives "59.24250"

    Negative latitudes are south of the equator, negative longitudes are west of the prime meridian.

Cumulus 1.9.4 beta build 1071 is available.

  • For 'easyweather.dat' input method: Read UV and Lux values from easyweather.dat file if 'extra sensors' selected.
    Note: The 'easyweather.dat' input method is not recommended for normal use; use the direct Fine Offset settings instead.
  • Ignore outdoor data if 'sensor contact lost' set in Fine Offset logger data

Cumulus 1.9.4 beta build 1073 is available.

  • Make sure Davis rain rates can never be negative
  • Add "rc" parameter to <#latitude> and <#logitude> web tags. If the "dp" parameter has been supplied, then supplying "rc=y" in addition will cause any decimal comma to be converted to a decimal point.
  • For Davis stations, read the high gust value from the console once a minute, in case the high value was missed during normal reading. Note that this only works for midnight start of day configurations, the console can't supply the correct figure for 0900 start of day.
  • Fix bug in the change in build 1071 to check 'sensor contact lost' set in Fine Offset logger data
