WeatherCat Version 2.4.2 Now Available
« on: April 15, 2017, 12:42:36 PM »
We are pleased to announce the release of WeatherCat version 2.4.2.

This is a maintenance release that includes the following changes:
  • Fixed an issue where a message ‘WeatherCatPlugInManager: err1’ might be logged on launch.
  • Davis Vantage and WeatherLink IP station drivers now report ‘Partly Cloudy’ in short forecasts rather than ‘Partially Cloudy’.
  • Added a Meteotemplate API driver (Tools->Meteotemplate).
  • Documentation update. Added a section for Meteotemplate and updated the synthetic channels section to include an example of a channel with queries.

Full release notes can be found in the 'Documentation' folder of the download or on the WeatherCat wiki.

As always, WeatherCat V2.4.2 (Build 15) is available for immediate download from our WeatherCat page or via the following direct download link: WeatherCat 2.4.2

Installed it, although 'lack of stability' was not a reason to do so (and never was before). Previous one ran 38 days with zero errors (good data: >1.600.000).

Thanks Stu!

Hi Stu

Installed the latest version of WeatherCat but unfortunately it crashes as soon as I try to run the Metrotemplate api driver. WeatherCat run ok when the driver is stopped and uploads to metrotemplate via the cron job, but crashes immediately i run the api driver.

Attached a couple of crash logs.

If you can email a screenshot of your Meteotemplate setttings, I'll see if I can reproduce it here.

Cheers.

Hi Stu

Acute embaressment, I have check, rechecked, and rechecked all the settings, reinstalled the Metrotemplate upgrades for ver 12 and 13 and finally noticed that I put yoxford-weather.oc.uk instead of yoxford-weather.co.uk. in the plug in url  [banghead]

This login error crashes WeatherCat .

Everything is working now.

Da cat is purring along - as usual  [cheers1]
