Build 972 available.

If you downloaded before 1145 GMT, please re-download

I haven't done as much testing myself as I would have liked, but the previous build is going to expire soon, so I need to get people to try this one before the old one does expire to make sure there are no 'stoppers' which would leave all the beta testers without a working build to run. Undoubtedly there will be a number of problems initially because of the amount of new code in this build; I'll get fixes out as soon as I can.

I have reverted to the old exception handler, so this build will produce a bugreport.txt file when it crashes. This also means that this build will not expire.

- Option to run external commands at 'normal' and 'realtime' updates - see internet settings and help
- Fix reading 'Rising' key in strings.ini
- Don't use Davis dew point when reading from logger (Celsius bug)
- Correct La Crosse dew point reading from logger
- Fix timestamp for rain rate highs
- A few changes to ftp error handling
- <#MoonPercent> and <#MoonPercentAbs> web tags
- Added dew point to all highs and lows, with all corresponding web tags
- Added Solar Radiation, UV, and Apparent Temperature to Select-A-Graph
- New editors for monthly and yearly records (highs and lows)
- All high/low editors have ability to search dayfile.txt and monthly log files to find highs and lows. Please read the help about this. Note that use of this facility may highlight problems in your log files that you may have been unaware of. Please do not post screen shots asking why the values do not match unless you have reason to believe there is a bug in the new code - check and amend your log files if necessary. If you think there is a bug in the code, please provide the relevant evidence; I am sorry, but I simply do not have the time to start going through everyone's log files myself.

Please note that there is a bug in each of the all-time/month/year record editors which affects systems using US date formats. Don't use the 'fetch logfile data' facility as it will generate incorrect dates. Fix to follow shortly.

Build 975 available. I am hoping to make this the final release, assuming no serious problems are found.

Mainly bug fixes, plus new cumulus.ini file setting:

In the [Station] section, add/modify the line

RainDayThreshold=-1

This specifies the threshold amount of rain at or above which a day is counted as a 'rain day' on the 'This Month' etc screens. The value should be specified in whatever units you use for rainfall in Cumulus. The default of -1 means 0.2 mm if you use mm, and 0.01 in if you use inches. The value supplied is rounded to 3 decimal places.
