WeatherCat Version 3.1.0 Now Available
« on: October 16, 2020, 09:14:56 pm »
We are very pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of WeatherCat 3.1.0.

Changes in this release include:
1. If solar radiation is present on the station, it is now displayed on the camera overlay.

2. Fixed an issue where custom graph web-tag may be clipped when more than 9 custom graphs are present.

3. Custom Alerts are now checked every two seconds, was five seconds previously.

4. Fixed a bug whereby it was very difficult to enter temperature offsets into calibration window if temperature units were set to Fahrenheit.

5. The number of RCP requests in the last hour are now displayed in the status window.

6. Updated the button links in Wunderground preferences.

7. You can now add a camera key to the Wunderground preferences for web-cam uploads.

8. We now indicate password/i.d. error for Wunderground if there’s a problem with the station I.D. or password rather than a generic ‘Error’.

9. WeatherCat now honours the number grouping separator (for example 1,023 versus 1023) as set in the System Preferences->Language And Region->Advanced in places where it makes sense (not years for example).

10. Added an AWEKAS uploader ( (Preferences->Online->Additional Services)

11. Added an FTPS option to the ‘Advanced’ pane of WeatherCat’s preferences.

12. Netatmo: Channel changes required to upload gust to on-line services. NOTE: If you are running a Netatmo, please check any custom graphs, gauges and current conditions rules as the channels may have changed.

13. Fixed an issue in the SQL driver whereby the progress bar would not be displayed when uploading historical data. We now also show how long uploading of historical data will take and also how many transactions per second during upload of historical data.

14. Documentation update.

WeatherCat V3.1.0 is available for immediate download via the following link: , or, if you are running WeatherCat V3.0.0 or later, you can wait for the update notification within WeatherCat to update automatically. If you can't wait, you can hit the 'Check For Update...' menu item in the WeatherCat menu.
