A few puzzles (Re: WeatherCatRCP 1.0 (180326))

Dear Grand and WeatherCat iOS beta testers,

What's New in WeatherCatRCP 1.0 (180326)

Okay, I got this version on my phone after more struggle than I would have expected.  For the second time in as many updates, Test Flight hangs instead of updating WeatherCatRCP.  I had to reboot my phone to get it working.

When I finally got this version installed it had lost my local installation of WeatherCat 3.  I had to switch to Stu's engineering WeatherCat and switch back to get WeatherCatRCP to recognize my WeatherCat installation.

I made a quick tour of the features and everything looked okay to me on my iPhone 6.  There is just one oddity I'm mention even if this might be something that was resolved during the private beta phase and I simply have forgotten the outcome.  One of my synthetic channels is being displayed as an integer instead of a real value.  It is my "Diff from ave rainfall" which is well above normal for March.  Here is the value on WeatherCat 3:

However the same channel on WeatherCatRCP is displayed like this:

Any reason why this synthetic channel isn't displayed with decimal values?

Thanks for your hard work on this app.  [tup]  It is really neat!  8)

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

Updated through TestFlight. Installed with no problem. Didn't experience the issue reported by Edouard. Everything looks fine to me. iPhone 8+ running iOS 11.2.6.

Thanks Grand. And special thanks to Mrs. Grand for supporting your weather hobby for the rest of us.
