WeatherCat Version 3.0.2 Now Available
« on: October 06, 2018, 12:14:22 PM »
Hello folks,
WeatherCat V3.0.2 is now available.

This is a maintenance update to address the following issues:
  • Fixed an issue with display of coordinates in NOAA style reports
  • Removed WeatherBug support as the service has shut down. See https://athena.trixology.com/index.php?topic=2749 for details
  • Potential fix for an issue where heat index may display incorrectly on monthly report.
  • Fix an issue where custom gauges may not render for custom web pages.
  • Updates for macOS 10.14 as follows:
    • a). Fix an issue where the historical download bar may not progress during the download from your logger.
    • b). Fix an issue where the application icon may not render correctly.

As always, WeatherCat V3.0.2 is available for immediate download from our WeatherCat page at: https://trixology.com/weathercat/ or if you are running WeatherCat V3.0.0 or later, you can wait for the update notification within WeatherCat. If you can't wait, you can hit the 'Check For Update...' menu item in the WeatherCat menu.

I spoke too soon. I later rebooted my Mac after a software upgrade on my Drobo. After that, WeatherCat locks up downloading data from the USB Data Logger. It gets anywhere from 3% to 20% and then beachballs. I're rebooted, replaced the prefs with older prefs, etc. But no joy.

Suggestions?

I too am noticing that since I updated  to the newest version, I get about 23% downloading and it freezes up.    Can I get the previous version back or a copy of it, if whatever the problem is and can't be fixed.  I am losing valuable weather data.
I have  even completely removed and then re installed the program and it still stalls on the download.  So I got a brilliant idea and used a different logger (an IP) and it did the same thing.   

I even used the time machine to go back to an earlier time... and nope, no way, no place.  something is corrupt.
I am using Mojave , Fusion with the new APFS for fusion.

I also have the "Downloading Historical Data from Station" lock up. it gets about 10% (sometimes a little above or below) and locks up. Weather cat has not worked since 10/7/18. I've rebooted several times. It automatically restarts and I've force quit about 50 times now... bummer...Good luck finding the issue! I love the software!

@weatheraarvark and @jenkins007:

This morning I grabbed 3.0.1 from last Thursday's Time Machine backup. (I upgraded to 3.0.2 on Friday.) I deleted the active .plist file, rebooted, and stuck my archived .plist in the preference folder, rebooted again for good measure, and then launched WeatherCat 3.0.1

I initially thought it wasn't working, because I got the beachball and no progress showing in the progress bar. But after a few minutes, it finished downloading, and was working like normal.

By the way, I'd also tried deleting my .plist file completely, rebooting and running WeatherCat 3.0.2 as a new user, and it still locked on downloading data. So it wasn't a borked preference file.

Stu, Like Weatheraardvark, I also have a Fusion drive with the new file system on Mojave. Could there be something odd with that configuration?

About 3 am this morning, I had the idea to start over.  I deleted everything Weathercat.  I also cleared the archive in the logger.  I "think" it works.  I have data saved but as I say now, it is starting over from scratch .  and I don't know if that will fix it in the long run

Steve, that issue of the non-progressing progress bar on 3.0.1 is a known issue, but with patience, as you discovered, it actually works.
