WeatherCat Version 2.0.0 Released
« on: September 26, 2014, 09:19:42 PM »
We are very pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of WeatherCat 2.0.0.

This release brings a host of new features to WeatherCat, including:
  • Custom gauges in six different base styles (Blue Chrome, Carbon Fibre, Aluminium, Bronze, Light Wood and Dark Wood), up to four pointers per gauge with the choice of current value or daily high/low/average data, 3 glass styles and rendering to custom web pages via a custom web tag. Similar channel types can be displayed on the same gauge (i.e. temperature and dew point).
  • Daily snow entry/editor with integration into year over year statistics and tags for custom web pages.
  • Synthetic channels that can create new channels by applying a user defined function to up to 5 existing channels real time data or daily high/low/average data.
  • WMR88 support with rain bucket multiplier and additional sensor support.
  • The creation of custom day types - for example a windy day might be a day with more than 200 miles measured wind run.
  • More flexible custom alerts can use any channel available on your station.
  • Current conditions calculator improvements.

For a full list of changes please see the release notes included in the distribution or the WeatherCat wiki: http://wiki.trixology.com/index.php/Release_Notes

Upgrade pricing from WeatherCat 1 to WeatherCat 2 is at half the full retail price - more information can be found on our purchasing page: http://trixology.com/purchase/

As always, WeatherCat 2 is available for immediate download from our WeatherCat page at: http://trixology.com/weathercat/

Finally, WeatherCat 2 will run on Mac OS X 10.7.5 and later. Older (unsupported) versions that will run on earlier versions of the operating system are available for download from our WeatherCat page.

Mine was also US$34.25 via PayPal on Saturday and is worth every penny. Thanks Stu.

Thanks for the laugh. By the way, 20 LBS in the US is 9.07 kg elsewhere.

Howdy Blick, Stu, and WeatherCat . . . . weightlifters . . . .  ;D

 ;)  . . . . Golly, I thought WeatherCat 2.0 was full of new features, but I didn't realize it was so heavy!!

Do ya' suppose that perhaps Stu is into . . . . . heavy metal!!! . . . . . . .

Lol, if you really want to know, check out the end of the credits on the last page of the manual.

Well I guess that answers that question. We should be learning by now that we should always check the manual first.

Awesome news... the ability to track snow is reason enough for the upgrade.  Look forward to upgrading soon!

Thanks Stu

Good to hear that, Steve. I'll probably switch the Mac mini that runs my weather software over to Yosemite this weekend now that I know the WeatherLinkIP software problem was solved before the public release.

Felix, I believe the data logger that required a driver update for Yosemite compatibility was the USB logger. The IP data logger does not use a driver and should be good to go.

You're absolutely correct, Blick! Appears I misinterpreted Stu's post on the following thread:

http://athena.trixology.com/index.php?topic=1386.0

As you pointed out, he was talking about a data logger problem.
