:: 1. Added support for WH3080 stations - these are the Fine Offset stations with solar and u.v. Note: The console can display solar radiation in watts per square meter but this display reads low by a huge factor. WeatherCat corrects this. Because of this correction, the solar radiation displayed and recorded by WeatherCat will not match the solar radiation as displayed on the console. The solar radiation as displayed by WeatherCat has been verified against the solar radiation as measured by a Davis Vantage (sensors in same location).

 +
::: f. Added WINDROSE8(PERIOD)$ and WINDROSE45(PERIOD)$ web tags. Replaced with a list of 8 or 45 wind rose values (starting at north and running clockwise, every 45 degrees or 8 degrees) over the period specified by PERIOD which can be any period accepted by the STAT$ tag.

Note: The console can display solar radiation in watts per square meter but this display reads low by a huge factor. WeatherCat corrects this. Because of this correction, the solar radiation displayed and recorded by WeatherCat will not match the solar radiation as displayed on the console. The solar radiation as displayed by WeatherCat has been verified against the solar radiation as measured by a Davis Vantage (sensors in same location).
2. WMR200: Fixed a crash that could occur on start-up.

4. Fixed a long-standing bug that could cause a spike on graphs at the start of a month.
5. Fixed an issue that could cause email to hang on some systems.
6. Scaling improvements when multiple humidity channels are present on a custom graph.
7. Tag additions/changes
a. Added MAXGUSTDIR(PERIOD)$ custom web tag. This is replaced with the wind direction at the time of the maximum wind gust over the period. PERIOD can be any time period accepted by the STAT$ web tag. For example: MAXGUSTDIR(TODAY)$
Can be combined with STAT$ tags to find speed and time - for example:
Max gust today: STAT$WINDGUST:MAX:TODAY$ from MAXGUSTDIR(TODAY)$ degrees at STAT$WINDGUST:MAX:TODAY:TIME$
b. Added MAXGUSTDIRTEXT(PERIOD)$ custom web tag. This is exactly the same as MAXGUSTDIR but the output is localised text, rather than degrees.
c. Added a DUTC$ custom web tag, this outputs the current UTC date and time formatted as: yyyy,M,d,H,m,s - for example '2013,1,24,19,50,57'
d. Improvements to DOMWDDEGREES$ and DOMWDTEXT$ tags - we now use a sector based calculation.

Note that the seconds will be different to the coordinates entered into WeatherCat as WeatherCat needs the coordinates in degrees, minutes and hundredths of a minute (i.e. LORAN format).
Added Lelevf$ and Lelevm$ custom web tags - these are replaced with the station elevation in feet or metres respectively.

Added WINDROSE8$ custom web tag - replaced with a list of 8 wind rose values (starting at north and running clockwise, every 45 degrees).
Added WINDROSE45$ custom web tag - replaced with a list of 45 wind rose values (starting at north and running clockwise, every 8 degrees).


V1.1.2 - 28 December 2012

Fixed a crash that could occur with WMR200 and WH1080 stations on start-up.
Added a DAYSAGO() function that can be used as a time period specifier with the STAT$ custom web tag. This can be used to query data from a given day in the past – for example DAYSAGO(2) is the day before yesterday.
Added Internal Humidity as a trigger for custom alerts.

V1.1.1 - 22 December 2012

Added Fine Offset WH1080/2080 support. This station is sold under a variety of brands including Maplin (N96GY), Ambient Weather, Conrad, Clas Ohlson, Watson (W-8681) and others. For more information on this station, please visit our wiki page: http://wiki.trixology.com/index.php/Fine_Offset
WMR200: Fixed an issue whereby UV would indicate as invalid when it should be valid.
WMR200: Fixed an issue whereby the historical download window would stop updating after 5 minutes (the download continues and completes).
Latest Italian translations courtesy of Federico Paoletti.
Documentation update.

V1.1.0 - 12 December 2012

Added Oregon Scientific WMR200 support.
Added calibration (Preferences->Misc 2).
Added an SDK (see separate download )
Added daily backups (Tools menu).
Added Wd$ macro (wind direction) that can be used with custom alert emails.
Printing improvements - it is now possible to print all basic graphs and the current daily and monthly reports.
Plotting style of basic wind direction graph is now settable to one of line, shortest path or dots (Preferences->Misc 2)
Data export rewritten. It is now possible to export all raw data as a .csv file which should open directly in most spreadsheet software.
Tag additions:
Added SINCE9AM as a period parameter that can be used in the STAT$ tag - example:
Highest temperature since 9 A.M.= STAT$TEMPERATURE:MAX:SINCE9$TEMPUNITS$ at STAT$TEMPERATURE:MAX:SINCE9:TIME$
Added an HRS(x) function which can be used as the period parameter in the STAT$ tag, This function specifies a time period in hours from 'now' - examples.
Highest temperature in the last 24 hours = STAT$TEMPERATURE:MAX:HRS(24)$TEMPUNITS$ at STAT$TEMPERATURE:MAX:HRS(24):TIME$
FTP re-architected to increase upload speed, reduce the number of connections and reduce latency of time sensitive data.
Holding down the 'ctrl' key whilst scrolling graphs and imagery via the WeatherCat Controller buttons now accelerates the scrolling.
Vantage VUE stability update.
Various bug fixes.
Documentation update.

V1.0.2 - 15 July 2012
