This release has a number of enhancements and bug fixes. See the changelog for details.

Cumulus 1.8.0 is now available for download. The major change in this release is the support of the data loggers in the Davis Vantage Pro/Pro2 and Fine Offset weather stations. The main benefit of this is that you no longer need to run Cumulus 24 hours a day.

I strongly recommend that you back up the contents of your Cumulus data folder before installing this release.

Cumulus version 1.7.17 is now available for download.

This version has a number of improvements to prevent ‘bad’ data being received from Fine Offset/Watson/MyDel etc stations. Users of these stations are strongly recommended to upgrade.

Also new in this release is a small enhancement to allow the background colour of the clock to be changed.

  • Added support for PWS Weather/WeatherForYou/HAMweather
  • Fixed problem where ‘easyweather direct’ mode didn’t work for some users
  • Corrected pressure display for ‘easyweather direct’ mode to allow for calibrated value
  • Changed all degree symbols on web pages to &deg; – really did it this time!
