  • Fixed evapotranspiration evaluation for Vantages with solar sensor

Update 4.9j

  • Fixed evapotranspiration evaluation for Vantages with solar sensor

Update 4.9i

  • Improves handling of USB WLAN dongles for DC01.
  • Tests with USB 1.1 devices with DC01 turned out, that a passive USB 2.0 hub is needed in-between to make this operable. This can impact older USB-serial adapters (PL2303 and FTDI seem to work on USB 2.0) and most USB HID connected weather stations. As USB hubs are checp and as we don't need a separately powered one, this can easy be solved by using such a hub in-between.

Update 4.9h

  • Bug fixes for DC01 platform to cure ftp upload problems and other quirks.

Update 4.9g

  • Bug fixes on support of weather network idokep
  • Added Czech Vantage forecast texts.
  • WD-Live receives forecast texts in English, German, Italian and Dutch from inside Meteohub. Selection of forecast language is now done by a separate drop-down box on "WD-Live" page of Meteohub. When language "individual" is choosen the texts from "/data/graphs/individualfc.txt" (resp. "/public/graphs/individualfc.txt" when you access it as a pc-network drive) are used. This allows you to feed WD-Live with Vantage forecast text of any langage. Format of "individualfc.txt" is a flat file, each line holding a forecast message. If file is not there or there is no line for the given forecast number, a dash will be reported as message. Individual forecast text is also reported in variable "actual_thb?_fc_textindividual".
  • Fixes a bug that changes MAC to a default one when deselecting DHCP.
  • Fixes bug with windchill computation on weatherstations that don't provide wind chill data directly.

Update 4.9f

  • Fixes bad APRS/CWOP time stamps (now "ddhhmm" instead of "hhmmss").
  • Fixes a bug that deactivates selection of weather network idokep when going to "weather network" page of Meteohub.
  • Makes pro version of weather network idokep an selectable option on "weather network" page.
  • Free selectable temperature sensor to use for wind chill and sealevel pressure computation. This feature is still experimental and has potential to produce some new bugs. Cyclic up/downgrade between versions 4.9e and 4.9f allow you to go back if you experience trouble with that.
  • Adds variable "actual_thb?_fc_textest" and "actual_thb?_fc_texthr" to display Vantage forecast texts in Estonian and Croatian language.
  • Adds to each resolution a "delta" variable that compares values on start against end of interval. this allows to compute trend data. when last value ist bigger than first, delta is positve. Variables provided with delta information are
    • temp
    • hum
    • dew
    • heatindex
    • humidex
    • chill
    • press
    • seapress
  • Adds RFXsensors and OWL power meter to Meteohubs RFXtrx capabilities.
  • Supports Silverstone DC01 as additional Meteohub platform. Installation is described here.

Update 4.9e

  • Adding Hungarian weather network idopek.
  • Adding dynamic DNS service "no-ip.com" beside "dyndns.org".
  • Fixed bug in PeetBros Ultimeter driver, which could cause termination of data logging.

Update 4.9d

  • Hot fix for the bug introduced with 4.9c which resulted in dropping TH sensors on "sensors" page when using certain weather station types.

Update 4.9c

  • Bug fix release that corrects error (introduced with 4.9b, signal #11) of data logging process.

Update 4.9b has a bug inside, please use 4.9c instead!

  • Fixes broken display of "rounds" to measure flash wear for SheevaPlug and NSLU2 platforms.
  • Fixes broken USB stick clone support for iConnect platform.

Update 4.9a

  • Fixes a bug on iConnect that can cause a hang of data logger resulting in socket error messages on sensors page.
  • Adds experimental support for new RFXCOM transceiver prototype
  • Fixes a bug on iConnect that results in swap space not setup and activated

Update 4.9

  • Adds some info on system page about wear status of used flash media. This status just reflects wear generated by Meteohub (starting with version 4.9) use, Wear that happened to the stick before use with Meteohub v4.9 or later is not taken into account. Approximated wear is given in rounds. One round is equivalent to writing every block of the flash media one time. SLC flash accompanied with a good wear leveling algortihm should stand a few thousand rounds. Cheap MLC usb sticks with inferior wear leveling are at risk to start failing after 100 rounds.
  • Supports USB stick clone function on iConnect. Simply insert a second stick during normal Meteohub operation and press front button until LED over inserted new USB stick starts flashing. Wait until flashing has finished and LED is turned off. Now the new stick can be removed. It is ready for operation now. You will also find some messages in "meteohub log".
  • Adds support for Lux/Solar and UV sensors of WH-3080 station to generic WH-1080 driver.
  • Fixes a bug that counts too many rain days and temperature ranges when timezone is not GMT.
  • Enhances rain day counting by ignoring a "rainfall" up to 1 mm per day. This clip level prevents a few drops of dew moisture to count a otherwise dry day as a day with rain. Changes apply to your logged data after a recompute.
  • Fixes a bug that does not stop upload of live data to Meteplug server although live data upload has been disabled.
  • Evaluation period has been extended until end of July 2012.

Update 4.8i

  • Makes Lufft WS600 implementation ANACON aware. Adding a "+" behind the device specification indicates that an ANACON device is added to the WS600 and Solar data could be requested from it. Using the "+" without an attached ANACON will block reading data from WS600 at all, as ANACON initialization will not succeed and will stall WS600 logging process.
  • fixed a bug in HW watchdog function of iConnect platform (watchdog did never fire before)
  • fixed an integer overrun bug when computing averages of air pressure data over a large time frame
  • adds LED support for iConnect platform. LED over USB port indicates if connected USB device has been correctly detected (LED shines on success, fades when device is disconnected or cannot be handled).
  • adds a short LED burst on iConnect platfom (right most LED over the front button) for every single sensor data being received and mapped to an ID.
  • adds support for Fjord Technology USB data logger

Update 4.8h

  • fixed bug in cc128 module, that formerly prevents from reading data from certain sensors
  • fixed a bug in computation of sealevel pressure when mode "use height and temperature" selected

Update 4.8g

  • added rxxx and pxxx fields to ARPS records (incl. CWOP)
  • added support for low cost USB sound level meter SL-814
  • added predicate "precision" for determining number of decimals of a resolved Meteohub variable in HTML template mode

Update 4.8f

  • added WH-1080 clones from Ambienweather to list of stations to select from
  • added an "imperial unit" flag to the left of language selector on "settings" page to have data reported on "sensors" page in °F, inHg, in/h, etc). This also changes station altitude specification on "weather station" page from m to ft.
  • only valid for iConnect users: update on iConnect system ID computation. This will require a one time reactivation of already activated iConnect Meteohub licenses after having done the update. License key you received via email is activated again, so you can generate a new activation code for the new system ID as you did when you started with the iConnect.

Update 4.8e

  • fixes a bug on weather network page, regarding position of rapid fire mode for weatherflow
  • fixes a bug that prevents from changing the http password on maintenance page

Update 4.8d

  • set evaluation period until end of January 2012
  • adds support for iomega iconnect platform, see upcoming offering on smartbedded for details
  • minor bug fixes

Update 4.8c

  • brings support for Lufft WS600 plus ANACON solar radiation sensor to production level. Station has to be configured to provide data on following channels:
    • class 7, id 1, channel 100: temperature in degrees celsius
    • class 7, id 1, channel 110: dew point in degrees celsius
    • class 7, id 1, channel 200: relative humidity in %
    • class 7, id 1, channel 300: pressure in hpa
    • class 7, id 1, channel 305: sealevel pressure in hpa
    • class 7, id 1, channel 460: average wind speed in m/s
    • class 7, id 1, channel 400: wind speed in m/s
    • class 7, id 1, channel 500: wind direction in degrees
    • class 7, id 1, channel 700: precipitation flag: 0 none, 60 rain, 70 snow
    • class 7, id 1, channel 600: rain total mm
    • class 7, id 1, channel 1053: rain rate mm/h
    • class 6, id 1, channel 900: solar radiation in wqm
  • When multiple WS600 are used a distinct "id" can be selected by adding "#" followed by id number to serial device specifier (example "/dev/ttyUSB0#3" selects station with "id 3")

Update 4.8b

  • fixed a temperature bug with Toradex OAK sensors
  • fixes a bug with neve flash players not showing embedded wdlive evaluation version
  • fixes a bug not displaying live data upload interval on Meteoplug admin interface correctly

Update 4.8a

Update 4.7k

  • Some updates on vantage usb logger recovery procedure after usb connection getting dumb.
  • Realizes a code change that reports 0% humidity on WH-1080 TH sensors, when humidity goes below 10% which causes WH-1080 console to report invalid humidity data.
  • As a light weight alternative to "WD Live" I added the "Meteoware Live" App from Christian Warinsky. It takes the definitions on sensors given on the "WD Live" page of Meteohub. Please press "save" when done the with the config there. To make it working you also need to define an generation/upload schema on "Graph Uploads" page. You will find it there as "Meteoware-live" for SI units or "Meteoware-live US" for non-SI units as used in US and UK. The App makes use of the language defined for Meteohub. Predefined are German and English. You can add texts of other languages by providing translations in an appropriate language file. When you update your current language file on "maintenance" page, you will see new entries, wating for a translation. More details on how to embed Meteoware on your home page can be found at "live.meteoware.de".

Update 4.7j

  • Fixes a bug in Rainwise MK3 initialization, which causes stations not pre-configured into "automatically send data" mode (":A") to stay silent. Bug fix makes sure to configure the station in the right way at the beginning.
  • Fixes a bug in template replacement mechanism that occurs on empty square brackets "[]" (replaced to empty string) and on square brackets having non-alphanum characters and a colon inside, like "[^\d\:]" (replaced to empty string).
  • Adds a couple of system variabes (with example values attached, units and language are taken from dashboard settings):
    • actual_system_version_text 4.7j

  • prints out Vantage forecast text with German special characters correctly annotated.

Update 4.7d

  • Reports max gust of last 10 minutes as gust speed to weather network "awekas".
  • Changes weather station software identifier for weather networks to "MHxy" (where xy=47 stands for version 4.7) schema. Same schema applies to Meteoplug, where idientifier is "MPxy".
  • Adds experimental support for plotting graphs based on evapotranspiration (when your Vantage reports this value).
  • Adds support for Vantage 3rd party "XBP Datalogger" from Fjord Technologies.
  • Fixes a rain fall computation bug when importing data from Meteobase. Adds support for Meteobase data with UV sensor data.

Update 4.7c

  • Adds support for ebox3300MX (updated x86 install image).
  • Fixes a WD export bug that was introduced during making output of meteolog.cgi compliant to XML standard.
  • Feature to import WSWIN and Meteobase data by calling a URL. "https://ip-of-your-meteohub/cgi-bin/import.cgi?file=meteobase_2010.csv&alt=520" imports file "meteobase_2010.csv" located in "/public/transfer" as raw data. Altitude "520" (in meters) is needed as second parameter for sealevel pressure correction. Meteohub replaces raw data files for all months by a monthly import raw file. Therefore, be warned that existing data matching a month to be imported will be overwritten. Imported data gets date/time correction to be stored in UTC based on timzone defined for Meteohub. WSWIN files can be imported the same way. Import files need to be plain, uncompressed ASCII.
  • Reactivates user "meteohub" for ssh login, as some users do depend on this. Meteohub has two users to login via ssh: root and meteohub. Please change passwords on linux level to restrict access to these, when you allow ssh access (port 22) to your Meteohub.
  • WDL prints out vantage forecast text in German, when Meteohub language setting is German.

Update 4.7b

  • Fixes a bug that prevents from using pc network share of meteohub.
  • Reverts meteolog.cgi output to bad tag closing syntax to keep compatibility with WD. Proper XML is returned when "quotes=1" is given as URL parameter.

  • compensation of bad time data in vantage logger when reading internal vantage logger data
  • better handling of sensors not received from vantage (wind, rain)
  • support for reading internal vantage logger data when using a meteoplug client
  • protection of activation code against unwanted deletion
  • adds a new addressing schema for USB serial converters that reflects the physical connector the converter is connected to. This allows to use multiple usb-serial connections and to have these devices named in a proper way. Device identifier is "/dev/ttyMHxy", where x indicates the usb bus number and y the usb device number on the bus. In case of an additional USB hub the schema is "/dev/ttyMHxyz", where x is usb bus, y is bus of usb hub and z is usb device number. Old "/dev/ttyUSB*" schema is also kept in place. You can choose which one to use.

Update 4.6r

  • more corrections to wd-live forecast codes
  • support for German vantage forecast texts by variable "actual_thb*_fc_textde"
  • support for weather station server ADCON A850
  • adds rain data to APRS and CWOP messages
  • fixes false "leaf-4" reading on vantage stations
  • supports read-out of internal logger of Vantage in case of missing data in Meteohub

Update 4.6q

  • Demo period now lasts until 31st of January 2011.
  • prints out a "no data" image when trying to do display a graph with no data in.
  • fixes a bug that displays graph for actual and next year when called to display actual year.
  • supports nightly icons in WD-Live (experimental)

Update 4.6p

  • low level driver for wsxxx improved.
  • Wd-Live day/night flag supported. Switching from day to night and vice-versa is aligned to local civil-twilight calculation. Data also avail as template variable "actual_daynight_flag_local" giving result "D" or "N".
  • Adds predefined conversion module "sensadd", which acts like "sensdiff", but adds the two sensor values instead of subtracting these.
  • Adds predefined conversion function "select" which can pipe data of two trigger sensors to an gawk script for further computation. Manual explains how to do that.
  • Fixes WLAN support for SheevaPlugs. Supported types are: adm8211, at76c50x, ath, b43, b43legacy, ipw2x00, iwlwifi, iwmc3200wifi, libertas, libertas_tf, mwl8k, p54, rndis_wlan, rt2x00, rtl818x, wll2xx, zd1211rw
  • Fixes a bug in generating WD-Live "clientrawhour.txt" files
  • Adds support for ELV USB-WDE1 weather station receiver (still experimental)

Update 4.6o

  • Fixes a bug that prevents from sending emails on alarm conditions
  • Adds support for pure leaf wetness sensors on Vantage
  • Adds support for virtual fail-over sensors and virtual sensors that computes difference of other sensors' values. Format to hand-over parameter to gawk scripts has changed slightly since 4.6n. Meteohub manual explains how to make use of failover and difference sensors in section 2.5 and appendix P.

Update 4.6n

  • Restarts http server on SheevaPlug if this has terminated by accident.
  • Cleanup of old kernel modules when using most recent SheevaPlug image based on 2.6.32 kernel. This frees the root partition from void data and brings usage from 90% to 85%.
  • Introduction of virtual sensors (something that has been requested for ages, to support home-brew solar sensors made of modified thermo sensors). Conversion of sensor values is done by external program or by gawk scripting, which allows for specification of conversion rules via the web interface. Up to 10 virtual sensors can be defined. Virtual sensors can be used for graphing, weather networks, data exports, wd-live, dashboard and can be used for HTML template replacement. They even show up on sensors page with their actual data. This feature is quite heavily integrated into multiple Meteohub components, so I guess it will need some hardening time until it is 100% bug free and it might have unwanted side effects.
  • Manual has been updated to version 4.7 to cover virtual sensors and other modifications.

Update 4.6m

  • fixes a bug on some SheevaPlugs that time zone cannot be set
  • Some minor bug fixes with the map and adds "Logger SW" field to the map, which indicates used Meteohub SW.
  • includes timezone of non-registered Meteohub's into data upload when using Meteoplug. This allows to use correct time zone when displaying Metohub data on Meteoplug maps. Registered Meteoplug users control timezone of Meteoplug via Meteoplug web interface.
  • fixes problem with handling underscores in wd-live station name.

Update 4.6l

  • Reports sensor IDs used on "weather networks" page as default sensors for outdoor temp, pressure, wind, rain, solar and uv as default sensors to be used with Meteoplug, when a Meteoplug makes use of a default sensor id like "th*", "thb*", "wind*", etc. Using the default sensors in Meteoplug chart definitions will make use of your default sensors, regardless, if there ID number is zero or anything else.
  • Meteoplug map does now make use of default sensors, to get data from stations where default sensors are not mapped to sensor id number zero.
  • Fixes a time zone bug when specifying calibration options.

Update 4.6k

  • Adds an optional map feature to show station and weather data on a map. Needs upload to Meteoplug. When you upload weather data to Meteoplug an have a map name defined you will find your station as a blue marker (registered Meteoplug users as a red Marker) on this map. Registered Meteoplug user can also adapt the map to their individual demands by newly introduced Meteoplug map creation features. I started populating the map with my station in "Lentföhrden" first. You are welcome to join.
  • Vantage users: Meteohub reports "Forecast Icons" (pos 89 in LOOP packet) to WD-Live on pos 48 in "clientraw.txt" file.
  • Fixes the underscore station name issue with WD-Live export.

Update 4.6j

  • adds weather network "regiowetter-bw"
  • adds min/max values for transport of data to weather network wedaal
  • heals situation that wd- and wswin export files might start with some not populated values when there is no fresh weather data there during first minutes of the selection period. By starting the data computation 10 minutes before the requested time frame, all values should be filled with "historical" data and first exported records have that data, even when no fresh data is present.
  • sets max temperature to handle up to 200°C to allow for some home automation monitoring purposes
  • gets more sensible to ignore bad data records from ws300 - ws888 type of stations
