WeatherCat Version 1.2.1 Now Available

WeatherCat version 1.2.1 is now available!

Changes since version 1.2.0 include:

  1. WeatherBug: If a sensor is missing or data is invalid we will not upload the data (the protocol doesn’t allow us to omit the data).  The WeatherBug status will read ‘Data not ready – waiting…’ in this case. We now also send monthly and annual rain.
  2. Fixed an issue with log window time-stamps. If WeatherCat was set to use the 24hr clock, between the hours of 0 and 1, time-stamps in the log window would display as 24:xx. It’ll now display as 00:xx.
  3. The SQLDriver will now log yearly and monthly rain to the SQL database when running live

This is a free update for existing owners and as always, you can download this release from our WeatherCat page.
