Re: WUnderground Plugin Updates

Wunderground Plugin v0.9.0 is now available.

This is a huge update and will likely be the last big update before I take the plugin out of beta. It is HIGHLY recommended that you make a copy of your current version of the plugin before installing this one; but that said, things should be okay.

Now for the changes...

- New! Astronomy Device type. Want to display phases of the moon? Now you can.

- New! The plugin now queries once per location rather than once per device (substantially reducing the number of API calls.) Note that the location information must be identical for similar locations in order for this to work. For example, a city name and its longitude/latitude are not the same..

- New attributes for existing devices. Adds states to Weather Device to support control page image selection heuristics for:
    Barometric Pressure (30.19 in. -> 3019 in., mb is no change) i.e., image+3019.png
    Wind Speed (2.4 -> 24, 24.5 -> 245) i.e., image+245.png
    Wind Gust (2.4 -> 24, 24.5 -> 245) i.e., image+245.png
    Adds long and short states comparing today's forecast to yesterday's actual temperature to support statements like: "Today's forecast is going to be warmer than yesterday."
- Bug fixes.
    Fixes bug where wind chill could not be used as trigger.
- Code refinements
    Implements a new handler for reaching out for data (thereby eliminating the "invalid literal for base 16() error") -- thanks Rick!
    Reduces the footprint of the data written to log file.
    Reduces the number of global variables.
    Simplifies debug code.
- User interface enhancements and bug corrections.
    Reduces the amount of text in instructions (favoring help bubbles.)
    Corrects some typos.

Sorry for the long time between updates. Wanted to test this one for a while to make sure it was stable. Also been working on a something else that I'll post about in a little bit. :D

As always, if anything isn't quite right please post bug reports to the forum or PM me.

Enjoy!
Dave

Re: WUnderground Plugin Updates

Wunderground Pluign v0.9.01 is now available.

- Fixes invalid literal for int() with base 10 from v0.9.0.

If you are not seeing the invalid literal for int() with base 10 error, there is no need to update.

Re: WUnderground Plugin Updates

WUnderground Plugin v0.9.03 is now available.

- Adds a state to the Weather Device type to support control page image selection heuristics for:

- Adds internal logic to test the plugin preferences file, and attempts to repair it if something is wrong.
- Cleans up new Unicode gremlins.

Re: WUnderground Plugin Updates

    - Adds new state to Hourly Forecast Device that provides a nicely formatted datestamp to use when charting (h01_timeLong, h02_timeLong, ...).

Re: WUnderground Plugin Updates

WUnderground Plugin v0.9.05 is now available.

    - Fixes unicode bug in history data parse routines.
    - Further standardizes unicode handling.
This is a maintenance release (no new functionality) that refines unicode handling. If your installation is working as you expect, there is no need to upgrade.

Re: WUnderground Plugin Updates

WUnderground Plugin v0.9.06 is now available.

    - Adds additional code to account for when API sends bad data (i.e., if the API sends values that don't meet the API dictionary specs.)
    - Adds additional code to ensure that wind direction values are standardized. This will result in all cardinal wind direction values being words (i.e., North, South, East, West.) Intermediate values should remain abbreviations (i.e., NNW, ENE.)
    - Added Plugin menu item to enable/disable all WU devices.
    - Fixed bug where poll interval was off by 5 seconds.
    - Fixed bug for windchill data in metric installations.
    - Fixed bug in percent illuminated value for astronomy devices.

Note: if you have image heuristics keyed on values of "N", "E", "S", or "W", these will break if you apply this (or future) update. You will need to rename your image files to correspond to the full word. This only applies to the four corners.

You can download it here.

- Fixes bug in the internal call counter.
- Reduces the frequency of the automatic check for new plugin version (to a maximum of once per day not counting the "Check for Updates Now..." menu item.)

There is still an issue with the time function--the reset of the daily counter is not happening at midnight (local time) as it should. I'm working on it. :D
