Re: WUnderground Plugin Updates

WUnderground v0.7.10 is now available.

This is primarily a maintenance release. There are lots of changes under the hood.

- Rounds temperature values to the nearest whole degree when the temperature precision is set to zero decimal places. (71.9° now becomes 72° instead of 71° as it has been.)
- Major code simplification and consolidation (more than 500 fewer lines of code.)
- (Re)fixes bug in help url (invalid token error.) :D

Please post any bug reports to the forum or in a private message.

Re: WUnderground Plugin Updates

WUnderground v0.7.12 is now available.

- New plugin menu item to dump weather data to a log file.
- Adjusts uiTempFormat when none type received.

Use some caution when using the data log feature. The log file operation can produce lots of output and its use will result in a call to the API for each enabled device. In testing, three weather devices resulted in about 20,000 lines of data (not a huge file, though, at about 1.4 MB). The log file is written to the Indigo log folder and, if used more than once in a day, will be overwritten to save space. While useful, this feature is of almost no daily utility--but can be useful if we're trying to isolate whether there is a plugin error or if the error is within the source data itself.

Re: WUnderground Plugin Updates

WUnderground v0.7.13 is now available.

- Provides notification when a particular location goes offline.

This update adds a device state called ['estimated'] to each device which shows when the location has gone offline. When ['estimated'] is set to true, Weather Underground is reporting the station is offline. The plugin will also pass any text-based notification provided by Weather Underground to the log.

Re: WUnderground Plugin Updates

WUnderground v0.7.16 is now available.

- Fixes bug in how certain device states were being stored by the plugin (i.e., value type such as string, real, etc.)
- As usual, some code refinements.

An important note: this update changes the way several values are stored within Indigo. Up until now, some values were being stored as strings even though the devices were initially structured to accept floats, integers and so on. This was an oversight on my part within the internal code. In any event, this update should improve the way that the plugin interacts with triggers. If you are using WUnderground Plugin data for custom scripts and so on, you may need to adjust your scripts slightly to account for the new value types.

As always, if something doesn't seem quite right, please let me know.

Re: WUnderground Plugin Updates

WUnderground v0.8.0 is now available.

- New! Satellite Image Downloader.
- New! Ten Day Forecasts.
- New! Day/Night icon names for Hourly Forecast Devices.
- New! Wind speed and wind direction for Hourly Forecast Devices.

- More logical labeling of device status in Indigo UI (for example, when server can't be reached, leave disabled devices marked as "Disabled.")
- Strips trailing carriage returns from weather alert message (cuts down on log space used.)
- Eliminates (erroneously created forecast states [5-7] for some Weather Device states.)
- Standardizes Trigger and Control Page labels across all device types.

Code enhancements including:
-- Eliminates the convStr() method.
-- Changes fixPrecipitation() method into fixCorruptedData() method to allow for additional fields to be accounted for. We'll start with wind speed and wind direction (values -999.0 and -9999.0 will now be captured.)
-- Better handling of instances where Weather Underground provides data that is not in the expected format (i.e., when it provides the string "NA" instead of a number.)
-- Enhanced code labeling and documentation.

Satellite Image Downloader: this is a new device type. Enter a URL and local folder into the settings box and the device will reach out to the Internet and pull down the image of your choice. There are several uses for this type of device. One example: by linking a control page image to a local cached image, you will still have an image to display if the WAN should go away. This will only work with images of type: .gif, .jpg, .jpeg, .png.

Ten Day Forecasts: This is a new device type. Just like it sounds. Provides daily forecast information for the next 10 days. If you were using days 5-7 within the Weather device, these values have gone away. You should now use the new 10 day weather forecast device type. For wind speed, we have a setting for average speed or maximum speed. We also have direction available as either text or as degrees.

Day/Night icon names for Hourly Forecast Devices: Just like it sounds. Should you choose, you can now associate day and night weather icons with hourly device states.

Wind speed and wind direction for Hourly Forecast Devices: Wind speed and direction values have now been included in the Hourly Forecast Device states. You can choose to display direction as text or as degrees. See the device settings.

This is a huge update. That is to say, there is likely something that snuck by me. as always, if there's something that isn't quite right, please let me know.

We now have a lot of potential devices hammering away at the maximum number of API calls. I will be rolling out a completely different plugin data engine which will limit calls to one per location no matter how many devices have been created for that location (the location information will need to match exactly--in other words, IL/Chicago will not be the same as US ZIP 60601.) This isn't yet ready for prime time, but will be coming soon.
