To have your Meteobridge running the latest SW release, just do a reboot or power-cycle. Updates are available for free for the first 2 years after initial license purchase. After that period you can buy another 2 years of updates for 19 Euro. Meteobridge PRO and NANO provide unlimited free updates.
  
 +
Chapters below illustrate new features and bug fixes that have been realized in current and previous releases.
  
====In The Works====
 
* add APRS Services.
 
* finalize anythingweather support.
 
* [[File:primarysensors.png|right|caption]]introduces the concept of primary sensors, which are the sensors that are used for reporting data to the weather networks. On "live data" tab primary sensors are listed in light red in the historical data section. Sensors actually not used as primary but having the potential to be used as primary sensors are displayed in yellow. By clicking onto a primary sensor (red ones) Meteobridge displays what kind of data the sensor is used for in the weather network context. By clicking onto a "potential sensor" (yellow ones) Meteobridge presents a drop-down list you can choose from to make this sensor a primary sensor. This allows to make the "outdoor temperature sensor #1" your primary sensor to be used for outdoor temperature reporting instead of using the default outdoor temperature sensor for this. On small weather stations with just one set of sensors this feature will not give lots of options, but stations with lots of sensors do get more options to select which sensor reports to the weather networks. [http://tau.meteobridge.com/files/sensor-retagging.m4v This screen capture video] demonstrates how to replace the standard temp/hum/dew sensor with the additional outdoor sensor #1.

===Version 5.1===
  
====Version 2.5====
+
released May 6, 2021:
released January 20, 2015
+
* Meteobridge PRO, NANO SD, RPI: offers a feature on "System - Administration" tab to copy data from a sensor to another sensor. This helps to cope with a situation where the sensor name has changed and you want to copy data from old sensor name over to the new one.
* fixes issues when 3in1 and 5in1 sensors are used in parallel on an Acurite Internet Bridge setup. 5in1 sensor array is given IDs wind0, th0, rain0 and these will be used for reporting into weather networks.
+
  
  
released January 17, 2015
+
released May 2/3, 2021:
* allow daisy chaining of any Davis Vantage PC weather program. A Meteobridge connected to a Davis Vantage by an Davis data logger (regardless if serial, USB or IP) exposes the Vantage on port 22222 like a Davis IP data logger. This allows other weather programs to also connect to the Davis Vantage and to read data in parallel from it. Only one additional program can read data from the Vantage. Function is a bit similar to the "Virtual Vantage" program that has been offered as a PC solution. Difference is that Meteobridge also supports LOOP2 communication (which "Virtual Vantage" does not) but as a downside Meteobridge can handle only one additional client (instead of 8 like "Virtual Vantage")
+
* adapts sending of hourly rain data to "Weather365" network to send data of last hour within first 5 mins of current hour. This is needed as "weather365" is not able to compute hourly rain data from difference in total rain by themselves but relies on sending redundant information in an out of sync timeframe. This makes the "weather365" API the most inconsistent to deal with I have seen so far, but your milage may vary.
 +
* adapts sending of daily rain data to "Weather365" network same way as done with hourly data. Not sure which kind of inconsitencies will additionally show up. I would recommend to use this network with some caution regarding meaning and correctness of data.
 +
  
 +
released April 29, 2021:
 +
* allows outdoor temp/hum sensor of WMR300 to report 0% relative humidity without being blocked.

released November 2, 2014
+
released March 1, 2021:
* WS1000/HP-1000 outdoor multi-sensor units from Ambient Weather/Fine Offset are now fully supported by Meteostick. Support just covers the outdoor sensor unit, air pressure is given by Meteostick. This version allows the Meteostick to drop its binding to an initially found WS1000 sensor unit. This can be done manually by a checkbox on "Select Station" tab or will be done automatically after a series of failed attempts to connect with the unit. Sensor unit IDs change when sensors are power cycled. Therefore, it needs a mechanism to bind to these IDs (which is done automatically) and to unbind again, when unit with another ID (or changed ID) should be listened to. In order to have Meteostick supporting WS1000 you have to update its firmware to version 2.0 by calling this URL: <nowiki>"http://<ip_of_your_meteobridge>/cgi-bin/stickupdate.cgi"</nowiki>
+
* Meteobridge RPI: adds support for fan control of RPI POE hat.
[[File:ws1000.png]]
+
* adds support for GW1000 leaf wetness sensor.
* further improves RF reception reliability of Meteostick for WS1000 sensor units.
+
* fixes a bug when calibrating windXmaxdir sensor.
* delays sending of weather data until all main values (outdoor temp, outdoor hum, pressure, rain rate, wind speed, wind direction) have been provided by the weather station. Wait ends after a minute to allow uploading in situation where some data is missing because of sensor defect etc.
+
* fixes a bug that crashes on generating clientraw files as part of WD-Live uploads.
* supports new Ubiquiti Unifi cameras (not the pro series). Remark: Snapshots have the Ubiquiti logo as a watermark in the lower right. At the moment we can't say if we can remove this watermark logo with coming SW updates.
+

released October 26, 2014
+
released February 7, 2021:
* eliminates wrong "needs a USB hub" warning on "Select Station" tab, when using a Meteostick.
+
* Meteobridge PRO: improves reading of indoor humidity to avoid reporting 30% as default because of no data available.
* adds experimental support for reading RF data via Meteostick from Fine Offset HP-1000 (Ambientweather WS1000) outdoor sensors (US and EU version). This needs update of Meteostick firmware to version 2.0 beta.
+
* introduces easy firmware updates for Meteosticks by any Meteobridge. Just browse to <nowiki>"http://<ip_of_your_meteobridge>/cgi-bin/stickupdate.cgi"</nowiki> to have the Meteostick flashed to newest firmware. When you want to flash a distinct firmware version, you can add version number as URL parameter. As an example: <nowiki>"http://<ip_of_your_meteobridge>/cgi-bin/stickupdate.cgi?2.0beta"</nowiki> flashes version 2.0 beta to the Meteostick.

released October 2, 2020
 +
* [[File:setdate.png|right|250px]]adds a "set date" button on "Edit Data" tab to define date selected here being default date for operations on tab "Import / Export".
 +
* [[File:importchunks.png|right|650px]]import feature has been reworked. Support of compressed files (.zip and .gz) has been stripped to allow import of very large files by cutting those internally into chunks. When import gets started it is done in chunks of 240 secs, then pausing 2 minutes to allow the database to work on the regular requests. This is repeated until the import file is handled completely. Progress can be inspected in "Logging" section of "System" tab. As import of massive files takes rather long this is a major improvement as a) regular Meteobridge operation is not paused during import time and b) large files are handled in the background, no need to cut into smaller chunks and to import those one by one.
 +
* [[File:mapping.png|right|550px]]some rather fundamental changes in the sensor naming concept. Supporting multiple stations makes a change in the sensor naming schema necessary. From now on there will be two distinct views onto a given sensor.
 +
** '''physical sensor''': A physical sensor does include all the details that is exactly determining a sensor. This includes station number, sensor type, sensor number, measurement category. Example: "thb1!0temp" is a combined thermo-hum-baro sensor (type: "thb") from station #1 (station: "1") with sensor ID 0 (number: "0") and measurement category "temp". Physical sensor names are best suited to exactly address a certain sensor.
 +
** '''logical sensor''': A logical sensor abstracts from some details of a physical sensor. It does not carry a station ID, but represents a special meaning. For example "th0temp" and "th0hum" represent the classical outdoor temp-hum sensor, which delivers the temperature/humidity information to be broadcasted to weather networks or used in graphs or your exports. Meteobridge defines a set of logical sensors with a special meaning as you can see in the picture on the right. These logical sensors are mapped to the corresponding sensors of station #0 by default.
 +
** [[File:mappeddata.png|right|550px]]'''Mapping''' of logical sensors to physical sensors allows you to adapt Meteobridge weather network support and graphing to your specific setup of stations and sensors. When you have an extra temp-hum sensor with ID #1 on station #1 and want to use this for outside temp/hum reporting instead of the one delivered with the primary station, you can simply map "th1!1temp" to "th0temp" and "th1!1hum" to "th0hum" and "th1!1dew" to "th0dew". In case you have a good source for wind chill temperature on temp-hum extra sensor #5 on station #1, you might also map "th1!5temp" to "wind0chill". As you see, this mapping feature is extremely powerful. It allows to adapt predefined weather services in Meteobridge (which are using logical sensors) to your specific station and sensor setup. In the picture on the right you see the new "Mapping" tab in the "Station" section of Meteobridge. This tab reflects the mapping mentioned before. "Mapping" tab replaces former definition of primary sensors on "Min/Max Data" tab, which is now a tab for data inspection purposes only, without interaction. Green sensors are the ones with predefined meaning by default, yellow sensors indicate that these have been mapped individually, white sensors are not attached to a logical sensor and can only be addressed as physical sensors. When moving the mouse over a sensor you get the mapping (if any) displayed as a balloon text.
 +
* updates Italian language pack
 +
* introduces an new sub page "mapping" that allows for mapping of physical sensors "th1!0temp" to logical sensors like "th0temp". This mapping page replaces former definition on primary sensors on "Min/Max Data" tab, which is now a tab for data inspection purposes only, without interaction. Green sensors are the ones with predefined meaning, yellow sensors indicate that these have been mapped individually.
  
released June 9, 2014

 +
released September 19/20, 2020
 +
* adds support for ObserverIP's new firmware that reports air quality for indoor (air0pm) and outdoor (air1pm) sensors.
 +
* fixes a bug that applies calibration of a specific sensor to all identical named sensors of additional stations (thb0temp, thb1!0temp, thb2!0temp, ...).
 +
* fixes some bugs regarding user-defined plugins.
 +
* fixes a bug when defining calibration factor or offset of sensors from additional (non-primary) weather stations.
 +
* Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: supports sensors from non-primary weather stations in exports and charts. Sensor number is replaced by station number an exclamation mark followed by the sensor number. Example "th1!1temp" addresses sensor "th1temp" from station 1. Sensors from primary station (station 0) do not need the station prefix "0!". Therefore, "th0!0temp" is identical to "th0temp". That way you don't have to change your existing chart, export and template definitions.
 +
* Meteobridge NANO & NANO SD: adds option to use user-defined plugins.
 +
* [[File:dashboardtab.png|right|450px]]Meteobridge NANO SD: adds a new second row tab "Weather Dashboard" which allows you to have a look at your current data in the famous Weather34 style. On the tab you can select if data should be transferred into this dashboard. When you launch the dashboard it will come up in a separate window (your browser needs to allow Meteobridge to open a window). The dashboard can also be reached from the Internet, if you enabled Meteobridge remote login. Dashboard does not provide charts. You can add your WU API key to include weather forecasts from WU. Please don't forget to set time zone and UTC difference on the dashboard configuration page. Many thanks to Brian for developing this fantastic looking dashboard.

* adds support for pure temp sensors to station type Oregon Scientific WMRS 200
 
* allows to define frequency of uploads of the WLIP data logger to Davis Weather Link service: every minute, every 5 minutes, every 10 minutes, never.<br />[[File:wlip.png]]
 
  
 +
released September 16/17, 2020
 +
* [[File:fast.png|right|450px]]adds a "quick navigation" feature that allows a direct jump onto the tabs of the second row. When mouse moves over the tab name, a list with accessible sub-tabs is popping up so that the desired sub-tab can be directly selected. This is a short cut for first selecting a tab from the first row, waiting until the page has built up and then selecting the sub-tab where you want to go.
 +
* fixes shortly broken support for "OberserverIP" stations.
 +
* fixes a bug when using non-metric units for sensor calibration on tab "Weather Station" -> "Settings".
  
released May 5, 2014
 
* adds a feature to calibrate wind direction
 
* enlarges buffer for historical data of last 60 minutes to even cover wind data coming in every 2 seconds
 
* reduces storage for data buffering when used with Meteoplug cloud services a bit, to avoid troublesome low memory situations

released September 13/14/15, 2020
 +
* [[File:airlink.png|right|450px]]adds support for Davis Airlink, which needs to be integrated as an additional weather station with its own IP. This station reports temperature, humidity and 3 particle values (pm_1, pm_2.5, pm_10).
 +
* fixes bug that prevents adding stations.
 +
* fixes not being able to make initial use of IP given for Observerip or GW1000 stations.
 +
* fixes number of supported language translation entires to 2000 instead of 1200.
 +
* fixes bug not supporting "via Console" RF reveiving option on Metebridge PRO red or Meteostick equipped Meteobridges.
  
released April 20, 2014
 
* better detection of maximum gust values for Davis Vantages by making use of LOOP2 packets and fixing the wrong documentation Davis does provide for "maxgust 10min".
 
* improves wind reporting intervals for Davis Vantage (down to every 2 seconds) even when using LOOP and LOOP2 packets synchronously. Also adding code that makes sure no wind gust is omitted, even when LOOP packet live data did not catch it up.
 
* adds an option to version control on "system" tab which forces booting from USB stick instead of downloading  application stack and historical data from the Internet. USB stick just needs to be FAT32 formatted and being inserted into USB hub on Meteobridge. When you then do a regular reboot the downloaded application stack will automatically be stored on USB stick. On next reboot this image will be used when told to do so by setting "try USB first" on version control drop-down options.
 
* applies standard correction for indoor temp sensor in the Meteostick of 6.7°C to roufhly compensate for heat emission of other components inside the stick.
 
* fixes bug in calculating rain rate for Acurite USB stations
 
* new weather underground logo
 
  
 +
released September 12, 2020
 +
* adds experimental support for new Ecowitt WH45 sensor (temp, hum, air quality and CO2).
 +
* silently reestablish tcpip connection drops (caused by the weather station) without doing a complete disconnect/connect station cycle.
 +
* Design of "Weather Station" tab has changed significantly in order to allow definition of multiple weather stations. Station is picked from a drop-down selection from the list of supported models. Then type of connection (USB, TCPIP, etc) is choosen and finally additional information like serial device or IP address is specified. Meteobridge takes care that only models that can be connected to your specific Meteobridge platform are presented. Beside the primary weather station a maximum of 4 additional stations can be connected to and evaluated by Meteobridge. This works even on the least powerful platforms like MR3020v1. The gallery below shows a Meteobridge MR3020v1 connected to five different weather station models in parallel.

 +
* [[File:prim2.png|right|250px]]Template variables are modified to handle multi-station situations. Sensors of the primary station can be addressed as before like "th0temp". "th0temp" sensor of first additional station can be addressed as "th1!0temp". The "1!" prefix indicates additional station #1, "2!" prefix denotes additional station #2 and so on. As before you define which sensors are used as primary sensors used for reporting to weather networks (on tab "Live Data" -> "Data Min/Max"). Their names are displayed in green. You can change that be clicking on one of the yellow sensors and stating that this one should be used as a primary sensor. Definition of primary sensors has not changed, you just have more options when using multiple stations.
 +
* adds support for user-defined plugins that can feed data from not natively supported weather stations to Meteobridge. This is done in terms of a simple, user-defined shell script that posts data to /dev/stdout in an endless loop. Format of data to be provided can be derived from the attached example script "simulstation.plugin" that provides random data for sensors thb0, th0, t0, rain0, wind0, uv0, sol0, data0. Plugin files need to have extension ".plugin" and can be located in "scripts" folder (only on PRO and NANOSD platforms) or can be loaded from an URL (on all Meteobridge platforms).

* [[File:calib.png|right|600px]]replaces the old mechanism to calibrate some sensors groups (wind0/rain0/th0/etc.) by a more general approach that allows for calibrating any sensor you like. "Station" tab has a sub tab "Settings" where you can define calibration. Calibration is done in terms of an offset and a factor. Although Meteobridge computes internally with metric units, you can apply calibrations in imperial units, if you like. It will be recalculated internally. The used calculation formular is displayed for you to understand how it works. Settings defined previously should be automatically converted into the new format.

 +
* [[File:2rowtabs.png|right|600px]]introduces a new navigation schema for Meteobridge admin web interface. As the content on some tabs has grown over the past the pages were getting longer and longer so that a lot of scrolling was needed. We now changed to a 2-row tab approach, where the content of a tab is divided into "sub tabs" where appropriate. This should make navigation more convenient and also gives room for more features in the future. Color schema is not the best in the world, but I think it is not too much pain in the eyes. Please do a "shift reload" with your browser to empty its cache on CCS and background GIFs. When you face any quirks regarding the new GUI, please report in the forum.

 +
 +
 +
released February 8, 2020
 +
* Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: allows period parameter of "export.cgi" script to specify a range. Example: "period=20191201-20200115" specifies range from Dec 1, 2019 until Jan 15, 2020 (end date is excluded so it is effectively until 23:59 Jan 14, 2020).
 +
 +
 
 +
released February 1, 2020
 +
* expands conversion options of template variables by a generic factor/offset model. Example: "[th0temp-act=f0,5+3,5:-]" returns the current outdoor temperate in degrees Fahrenheit but multiplies the result with 0.5 (factor) and adds 3.5 (offset) to it. If factor or offset contain decimals, these need to be written with a comma "," instead of the dot "." because the dot has a special meaning when used with template variables. Factors and offsets can also be applied to export and chart definitions.

 +
* [[File:export2.png|right|300px]]Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: allows to feed "export.cgi" function with a template string instead of a pre-defined template file. Please keep in mind that these templates are used for mass data export from the database and they are not providing the conversion features known from the regular templates. Example: <font face="Courier"><span style="background-color:lightgrey;">export.cgi?period=202001&resolution=day&template=[YYYY]-[MM]-[DD],[epoch],[th0temp-avg.1:],[th0temp-min.1:],[th0temp-max.1:],[th0hum-avg.0:]</span></font face> returns the data on the right.

[wind0maxdir-dmax=endir:-] does the same but reports as a text like "NWN" instead of degrees north. New "wind0maxdir" data starts being collected from installation of this version on, so it will not work back into the past.
 +
 +
 +
released January 2, 2020
 +
* [[File:htmlgen.png|right|450px]]Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: adds a service that generates HTML and text files based on a template file or a directly specified template description. Resulting file is stored in the "html" folder on the PC network share of the Meteobridge.

 +
* [[File:wlcloud.png|right|550px]]adds support for a new personal weather data upload service named "WL Cloud". This feature is only available for Meteobridges connected to a Davis data logger (Console or Envoy, not Envoy8x). It directly uploads data from the logger (not data from the Meteobridge) to an URL of your liking. Data consists of LOOP, HILOWS and DMPAFT data sets as provided from the Davis logger. Upload format is similar (and might be compatible) to what Davis uses to feed their weatherlink network. To have your web server ready for receiving the data, please use [https://admin.meteobridge.com/files/wlcloud.pl this perl code], which stores uploaded packet content on your server in separate files for further processing. Code is very simple and provides some comments to understand what kind of data is stored in the files. Feel free to use this code and change/distribute as you like.
  
released March 29, 2014

* has all images converted to GIF to free up some RAM.
 +
* gives a bit more RAM headroom for platforms MR3020, MR3040 and WR703N when not using "Acurite Bridge" as weather station. This is to compensate for using new, bigger openssl libs to support TLS-only HTTPS uploads on those platforms.
 +
 +
 +

 +
 +
 +
released August 28, 2019
 +
* "template.cgi" endpoint does not return HTTP error codes 503 and 504 if template cannot be evaluated for any reason. This makes it more easy for a reading processes to react correctly.

 +
 +
 +
released August 15, 2019
 +
* changes automated payment method from "PayPal" to "MyCommerce". This gives you more flexibility on payment options. When transaction is done, you get a license key to be manually entered on "License" tab and saved. Having done that, Meteobridge needs to be restarted to come up licensed. Update licenses to purchase additional 2 years of SW updates are handled the same way.

* [[File:gw1000.png|right|150px]]adds support for new weather station gateway GW1000 from Fine Offset. GW1000 collects data from up to 8 WH31 sensors (temp/hygro with display), 16 WH51 sensors (soil temp and moisture with sensor cable and display), a WS68 sensor unit delivering outdoor temp/hum, wind and uv/solar data, a Wh40 rain counter, and finally a WH41 air quality meter. The GW1000 gateway connects via WiFi to your LAN and provides data to the Meteobridge, when Meteobridge is told the IP of the GW1000. Apart from the standard set the GW1000 supports soil sensors and an air quality sensor. Implementation has been tested with quite a few sensors in the meanwhile. Please report bugs in the corresponding thread in the forum.
 +

released April 22, 2019
 +
* Meteobridge PRO: fixes a bug that prevented some Meteobridge PRO to install latest scripts and support files.
 +
 +
 +
released April 20, 2019
 +
* fixes the pressure bug when sending data to windy.
 +
* [[File:newvocore2.png|right|400px]]Meteobridge NANO: adds TX power boost mode for the new batch of NANOs (left picture, with a red strap instead of a black strap). This option makes use of the better RF power emission of the new batch of VoCore2 modules. Please be aware that this mode draws so much power that the console needs support by additional batteries or (better) a more juicy power supply (minimum 500 mA). The standard 300 mA power supply of the Davis console cannot feed this mode, voltage will plump on WiFi operation and make the NANO reboot. Please use this mode only, when you experience WiFi reach problems. If your WiFi operation is fine, don't mess with this mode. Black strap NANOs don't have this option.
 +
 +
 +
released April 18, 2019
 +
* [[File:windy.png|right|400px]]adds weather network windy.com. It needs an API key that users can generate once they have registered an account.
 +
 +
 +
released April 15, 2019
 +
* more changes on OpenWeatherMap support. Meteobridge does now check for a station already being registered at the provided API key. If not, Meteobridge will register a station. If there is already a station registered the first one from the list (in case there are multiple stations registered) will be used by Meteobridge for uploading. This is still experimental, but please give it a try. Deleting the stations Meteobridge might have registered before is a good step to start with. OpenWeatherMap API documentation explains how to delete stations via HTTP requests. I am still disappointed that OpenWeatherMap does not provide features to setup/maintain/delete stations within their web interface, which is clearly the right way to go.
 +
 +
 +
released April 14, 2019

 +
* NANO SD: fixes newly introduced bug which inhibits backup script execution.
 +
* [[File:owmapi3.png|right|400px]] switches support for OpenWeatherMap to their new API 3.0. This was necessary because upload using legacy API is no longer available for new users. Using API 3.0 needs you to enter the APP ID you are granted by OpenWeatherNet when setting up your account. When you enter APP ID and station name and press "save" a station ID will be automatically assigned at OpenWeatherMap. Support for this rather complicated and complicated to use weather network is still experimental.

 +
released March 17, 2019
 +
* Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: fixes a bug that can make Meteobridge reboot when doing a database backup.

* [[File:data21.png|right|350px]]Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: allows to feed alien data (as "data21num") into Meteobridge by providing an executeable shell script as /root/datafeed that returns "data21 xxx", where xxx is an integer number which will be divided by 100 when used by Meteobridge. Example: File "/root/datafeed" is defined as follows and presents value "100.00" on the live data display for sensor "data21num":
 +
<pre>#!/bin/sh
 +
#
 +
echo "data21 10000"

exit 0</pre>
  
====Version 2.1====
 
finalized March 22, 2014
 
* introduces a new firmware for TP-Link MR3020 platform that no longer needs a USB hub to connect to majority of USB devices. To do a firmware update of your TP-Link MR3020 do the steps outlined at the end of this paragraph, but please keep in mind that you do this at your own risk. In the unlikely event that you brick the unit by this, it is your damage. If you don't want to take the risk, stay with the current firmware. Updating firmware does not void your Meteobridge license, your unit will stay licensed as it has been before, but it will delete all your local settings, so you are again back to factory defaults after this.
 
** download firmware 1.4: [http://www.meteohub.de/files/meteobridge-tl-mr3020-v1.4.bin meteobridge-tl-mr3020-v1.4.bin]
 
** browse to "http://ip-of-your-meteobridge/cgi-bin/fwupdate.cgi" (please don't type this literally, but insert the LAN IP of your Meteobridge)
 
** insert your Meteobridge web interface password
 
** unselect "keep setting" flag
 
** browse to downloaded 1.4 firmware
 
** press "flash image" button
 
** confirm on next page and wait until Meteobridge reboots (will take 2 minutes).
 
** as a side effect all settings you made so far are lost, so you have to restart your configuration from scratch again
 
* TP-Link WR703N also has a USB fixed firmware version 1.4 available: [http://www.meteohub.de/files/meteobridge-tl-wr703n-v1.4.bin meteobridge-tl-wr703n-v1.4.bin]. Procedure to update firmware is identical to MR3020 as explained above.

 +
released January 13, 2019
 +
* [[File:meteoclim.png|right|500px]]adds support for weather network meteoclimatic. Data is uploaded to the Meteobridge server and meteoclimatic data collector needs to be told the URL where to pick the data from. URL is individual and provided as "Data Link" on Meteobridge "Weather Network" tab. Green marks just indicate that the Meteobridge server did store the data, it does not show if meteoclimatic has grabbed data from there. This loose coupling is one of the disadvantages of the "drop and forget" data upload schema, you don't get feedback if data has finally reached its destination.
  
released February 27, 2014
 
* some slight storage usage optimizations to give Meteobridges connected to a "Accurite Internet Bridge" a bit more of RAM headroom, which is needed for uninterrupted Meteoplug upload use. Reading data from the "Accurite Bridge" pushes Meteobridge to the limit as it needs a rather large library being loaded to intercept the TCP/IP traffic and to sniff the weather data payload from the TCP/IP packets.
 
  
 +
released January 6, 2019

WSWIN can be pointed to this file to read data ongoing in per minute resolution from the Meteobridge. Interval to build this file can be between every 5 minutes up to every hour. Please keep in mind that doing short intervals will add to the wear of your USB or SD-card storage in the Meteobridge.
 +
* Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: adds option "pragma exportfile=xyz" to be used within export templates. Using this option will store export data with filename "xyz" in export folder instead using template name and selected time frame and resolution as file name.
 +
* Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: adds option "pragma append=y" to be used in order to add more line to an already existing file without repeating the header lines. Using this option is helpful to incrementally add data to an export file.

* [[File:import1.png|right|500px]]Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: adds data import function on "Hirstory tab. In a first step import of Meteohub raw data files and Meteoplug monthly export files are supported. Files can be zipped (".zip") or gnuzipped (".gz") or plain text. Files need to be copied into "import" folder on PC network share provided by Meteobridge. There is an option to skip malformed records or to halt import. Meteohub and Meteoplug provide up to 4 million raw data records per months, so this can take half an hour (NANO SD) or an hour (PRO) to import. While import is running, new logged data is queued and stored into database when import is done. Feeding of weather networks is halted during the import.
* don't show USB hub warning on "weather station" tab when using vantage with WLIP interface configured

 +
* adds support for IP connected Lufft WS10 stations.
 +
* Meteobridge on TL-MR3020v3: adds a feature that allows to act as a TFTP server to flash more TL-MR3020v3 devices into Meteobridges. All needed is to browse to "http://ip-of-your-meteobridge/cgi-bin/clone.cgi" and to follow instructions. This does not help you to flash the first TL-MR3020v3 but allows you to more easily replicate once you have one running.

* Meteobridge PRO and NANO: changes code to potentially improve WLAN long-term stability.
 +
* Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: when calling a chart, URL parameter "sensormap" allows to use alternative sensors instead of the ones programmed in the chart definition. Assume a chart shows data for "thb0" and "th0" then adding "&sensormap=th1,thb9" to the chart URL will make the chart to show data for "th1" instead of "th0" and data for "thb9" instead of "thb0". This is an easy work-around to avoid definition of duplicated charts for various sensors of the same kind.

* [[File:hws1.png|right|450px]]Meteobridge NANO SD: We did a port of Brian's famous HomeWeatherStation template to run on the NANO SD. To have this activated it just needs you to select "Local Dashboard" on "Weather Network" tab and then to give it an upload interval. In order to have current conditions and forecast information on the dashboard, you need to signup to DarkSky an CheckWX services, both free of charge for private use. The HomeWeatherStation dashboard receives historical data from the NANO SD database and makes use of the Meteobridge charting engine powered by the amcharts JavaScript package. Dashboard can be used locally in your LAN but also from the Internet by a remote link. To access the dashboard no credentials of the Meteobridge admin web interface are needed. Dashboard also adapts to mobile devices. This is the first time we offer a powerful dashboard, locally hosted on a Meteobridge without any need for setting up a web server. We hope you enjoy this feature and I have to say a big thanks to Brian, who was so generous to allow me to bundle his template with the Meteobridge software in order to make it most easy for you to use. In case of technical interest you can download my adaption of HomeWeatherStation template from [http://content.meteobridge.com/files/hwslocal.tgz here]. Let us realize for a moment that all this is provided by a stamp-sized module in the back of a Davis console! Future is now ;-)
* adding simple internet upload facility for aircam images plus annotation with weather data. No history of images, just the latest one can be accessed. Upload interval goes down to every 5 minutes. Annotation is realized by linux convert program, which provides tons of bells and whistles and also allows resizing and other tricks on your image. For ease of use some standard templates for classical weather data annotation are provided as drop-down options (ISO and imperial units).<br />[[File:aircam-1.jpg|670px]]<br />Overlay text for "Imperial EN Aircam 1.2":<pre>-resize 852x480 -fill black -draw "fill-opacity 0.7 rectangle 0 460 852 480"

 +
* adds feature to transfer min/max data of some sensors from Davis Vantage/Vue console to Meteobridge. This is recommended for initial setup only as it might result into inconsistencies (thb0seapress data is provided, but no thb0press data) and it will also erase date/time stamps for those sensors as the console does not provide date/time stamps for all min/max values). Not supported on Meteobridge PRO.  
 +
* Meteobridge NANO: adds a feature to compensate for heating-up the console a bit by the NANO plug-in. This results into higher indoor temp readings as they actual are. An offset to compensate for that can be specified in Fahrenheit or Celsius. Recommended value is -6° Fahrenheit.

 +
 
 +
released August 15, 2018
 +
* fixes a bug that Davis console initialization remains incomplete when all setup options are selected.
 +
* adds a feature to set logging interval of the Davis data logger. This interval is meaningless for Meteobridge operation (as Meteobridge does not rely on the Davis logger) but might be interesting, when a PC connects directly via port 22222 to the Davis logger.
 +
 
 +
 +
released August 14, 2018
 +

released July 26, 2018
 +
* fixes a bug on platforms TL-MR3020v3 and TL-WR902AC that inhibited to make use of a bridged device on the Meteobridge LAN port by Meteobridge itself. Example: Meteobridge is connected via WiFi to your LAN and has a webcam directly connected to its LAN port. So far on TL-MR3020v3 and TL-WR902AC this webcam has been connected with the LAN fine (when bridge mode on Meteobridge is enabled on "Network" tab) but Meteobridge itself was not able to connect to it (while every other device in your LAN could). This bug is fixed now. Please note that only the mentioned new platforms have been impacted by that.

Compared to the legacy MR3020 we have double the ROM/RAM and we don't no longer need any USB hubs in order to have a USB weather station connected. When you had a former Meteobridge firmware installed on MR3020 V3 we strongly recommend to upgrade to the new one. Doing so will need to have your license adapted. Please contact "info(at)meteobridge.com" by providing the MAC of your unit, we will swap the license to the newly flashed MR3020 V3. Please visit hardware section to understand how to flash a MR3020 V3 and where to find the firmware image.

released March 10, 2018
 +
* adds template variable expressions "[mbsystem-primarysensors:]" and "[mbsystem-noprimarysensors:]" to control inside a template if "0" sensors (like th0, wind0, rain0, etc) should be replaced by sensors defined on "Live Data" tab as primary or taken literally. The mentioned template expressions are evaluated to the empty string and thereby do nothing directly in your template but control how variables are evaluated as a side effect.

 +
 
 +
released February 24, 2018
 +
* [[File:wflogo.png|right|200px]][[File:wflow-300.png|right|200px]] adds full support for WeatherFlow AIR and SKY stations. Although these stations are part of your LAN/WLAN Meteobridge does not need to know their IP. This is a cool feature made possible by the station that sends data out as UDP broadcasts. Backside of this very convenient technique is, that the data cannot be routed and by that Meteobridge cannot connect to a WeatherFlow station outside the local LAN/WLAN.
 +
* adds a feature to address the sensors marked on "Live Data" tab as primary in template definitions. Please read details here...<BR>Since version 3.6 Meteobridge also supports selection of a sensor which has been defined on "Live Data" tab as primary. When no primary selection has been made all the "0" sensors (like "th0temp", "wind0wind", etc) are primary by default. But when you select "th3temp" as primary sensor and by that its data is reported as your stations outdoor temperature to all the weather networks, then you can now also select the primary sensor in your template definitions by selecting it as the "*" sensor. For example: "th*temp" selects the sensors defined as the primary outdoor temp sensor. When you use "[th*temp-act:--]" you get the current temperature of your primary outdoor temp sensor. This will be a synonym to "[th0temp-act:--] as long as you have not selected another sensor as primary outdoor temp sensor. But when you have selected "th3temp" to be the primary outdoor temp sensor, then "th*temp" will reference to "th3temp" instead of "th0temp". Please be aware that Meteobridge versions before version 3.6 will fail to evaluate "*" sensors. Therefore, it is recommended to provide both notations in a template and to make use of the conditional evaluation as explained in a later chapter. Here is an example that takes "th0temp" as default outdoor sensor on older Meteobridge versions and newer "th*temp" notation on current ones: <font face="Courier"><span style="background-color:lightgrey;">#if{*[mbsystem-swversion:1.0]>=3.6*}#then#outdoor temp: [th*temp-act:--]°C#else#outdoor temp: [th0temp-act:--]°C#fi#</span></font face>

* [[File:tl-mr3020v3.png|right|250px]]Support for version 3 hardware of the TL-MR3020 from TP-Link has been added. This support does come with two caveats:
 +
** As we are lacking reliable working Open Source WiFi drivers for this new device, Meteobridge can currently offer LAN operation only. It remains unclear if/when this limit can be lifted.
 +
** The stock firmware only accepts updates of TP-Link signed updates. By that the Meteobridge firmware cannot be flashed to the device by the web interface. To work around this you have to setup of a TFTP server on your PC that provides the Meteobridge firmware for flashing. Flashing itself is easy, but it needs you to setup the TFTP server first.
 +
* You find a description how to flash the MR3020v3 in the "Preparing Hardware" section and can have a look at the hardware details of this new platform in "hardware" section. First tests indicate that this version 3 of the MR3020 does no longer need a USB hub to connect to the weather stations, which is nice. As Meteobridge support for MR3020v3 is brand new, there will for sure still be some bugs. We are happy when you report those in the forum, so that we can get rid of them fast. As with all new ports, please be a bit patient if it takes a few days until an issue is solved.

* [[File:tl-wr902ac.png|right|250px]]New hardware TL-WR902AC from TP-Link has been added to the list of supported devices. "Hardware" section and "Preparing Hardware" section are updated and explain how to flash these devices. The WR902 offers twice the RAM and Flash-ROM compared to MR3020, which makes developing SW for it a bit more relaxed. Feature-wise Meteobridge on this device is identical to all the other non-pro Meteobridge platforms. While WR902AC is able to operate on the 5 GHz band Meteobridge is currently only operating in the standard 2.4 GHz Band. This shouldn't be an issue as there are rarely any 5 GHz only WLANs and 2.4 GHz has anyway better RF reach and we don't really need top speed for Meteobridge operation. If the WR902AC also needs a USB hub to connect to USB 1.x weather stations is not known yet. It also has an Atheros chip, but it is another model and may be the drivers for this model do it right now... we 'll see. The port to WR902AC made switching from openwrt to lede on OS level necessary, so we had to setup a complete new compile chain. Therefore, the port might still have some bugs. If you discover some bugs, please report and please be a bit patient if fixing takes a few days. Currently the WR902AC is sold as hardware revision 1.x. You can see from the TP-Link pages that they are preparing to release a version 3 model, which seems to use different hardware. So take your chance to get a version 1 WR902AC which are widely available on world-wide level right now.

 +
* Meteobridge PRO: enhances "@YYYY" addressing schema to be used with template variables. When "YYYY" is not defining a valid year but is in the range of "0000" to "0010" then "0000" is interpreted as the current year, "0001" as the previous year and so on. In that situation the 4 digit number expresses how many years to skip into the past. These skips need to be in 4-digit style, leading zeros are not allowed to be omitted.

SFTP upload services can be selected like FTP upload, parameters are the same. Implementation is still regarded beta. FTPS (aka FTP via TLS) is not supported. An option to test a SFTP connections is added at the bottom of the "services" tab.
 +
* more nicely adapts HTTP timeout settings to given send intervals. This means tighter timeouts are applied for rapid sending and more relaxed timeout apply when data is sent just every 30 seconds or even less often. Maximum timeout is 13 seconds. A URL not answering in that interval can be regarded broken (even on slow cellular networks).

* [[File:humstretch.png|right|250px]]does no longer report temperature as dew point when humidity is at 0%. Behavior is altered, so that no dew point value is reported, when humidity is at 0%. This is because there is no dew point without humidity. When you urgently need some kind of dew point even when your humidity sensor reports zero, you can adapt humidity stretch as follows. A value of "0" will then be mapped to "1".

 +
We got notice that TP-Link changed the NOR flash storage in some of the newer hardware batches named Rev 1.9 (see picture on the right) of the MR3020. Unfortunately, this chip is not supported by the Linux kernel we use in our current Meteobridge firmware and the unit will not boot. But we were lucky enough to patch the kernel this evening, so that the new chip is now recognized and Meteobridge firmware in new [http://www.meteohub.de/files/meteobridge-tl-mr3020-v1.5.bin version 1.5] is now doing well again. For those who flashed one of the impacted MR3020 with Meteobridge firmware 1.4 the sad message is, that the unit is bricked. I just posted an instruction in the forum how to resurrect the device without opening it, but it is more for the hardcore techie: http://forum.meteohub.de/viewtopic.php?f=56&t=12318&p=23502#p23502<BR>
 +
I am sorry for the hassle, but we cannot foresee, what TP-Link will surprise us with.... all we can do is to solve issues pretty fast, which I think we did.</div>

released August 17, 2017
 +
* adds template variables "daylengthmin", "civillengthmin", "nauticallengthmin" which report length of shortest day (December 21) of the current year at the given longitude/latitude.
 +
* adds template variables "daylengthmax", "civillengthmax", "nauticallengthmax" which report length of longest day (June 21) of the current year at the given longitude/latitude.
 +
* adds converters "secs", "mins", "hours" to be applied to daylength results. Converter returns a floting point number that defines the time period in seconds, munites or hours instead of the standard "HH:MM" format. This makes it more easy to to math between time durations. Example: Template string "{* [mbsystem-daylengthmax=mins.0] - [mbsystem-daylength=mins.0] *0}" returns number of minutes the current day is shorter than longest day of the year.
 +
* adds an option to specify number of leading zeros when using decimals specifier. "{*([mbsystem-daylengthmax=mins.0]-[mbsystem-daylength=mins.0])/60*00t}:{*([mbsystem-daylengthmax=mins.0]-[mbsystem-daylength=mins.0])%60*00t}" returns lost daytime compared to longest day of the year in "HH:MM" notation. "*00t}" sets output to 2 digits filled up with leading zeros ("00") if necessary and does not do rounding but cuts of decimals ("t").

 +
* [[File:wurainrate.png|right|300px]]adds an option to send true rain rate data to WU instead of cumulated rain of last 60 minutes. Default Meteobridge upload of cumulated rain is in line with WU specification but some users requested to see rain data on WU as on their console.

* removes user-defined retries for weather network ambientweather.net to spare server bandwidth.
 +
 
 +
 
 +
released June 18, 2017
 +
* improves algorithm to compute station pressure from SLP as reported by Vantage. Normally, Meteobridge directly requests station pressure from Vantage by means of LOOP2 protocol. But there might be situations where Vantage console is on old firmware level (below 1.9) not supporting LOOP2 or when Meteobridge acts as a slave to a PC weather program emulating a WLIP device and by that might not get LOOP2 packets. Please understand that back computation of station pressure from SLP is not perfect as average humidity and temperature of last 12h hours is not avail to Meteobridge. When you are operating in higher altitudes be prepared that some variation will occur. You can compensate by pressure adjustments on "station" tab.
 +
 
 +
 
 +
released June 14, 2017
 +
* fixes time triggers "before each new year", "before each new month" and non-PRO Meteobridges (PROs did not had the reported problem).

 +
released May 26, 2017
 +
* adds template variable "epoch" which returns current date/time as unsigned integer in Unix style (seconds since January 1, 1970).
 +
* Meteobridge PRO: changes OLED screen saver to show two moving vertical lines when active. Screen saver pauses a few seconds and shows original content when lines do meet in the middle of the screen. Moving lines avoid having the false impression that display is completely off.

 +
final 3.2 version released May 6, 2017
 +
* introduces limited time frame for update support. Free updates are available for first 2 years after license purchase. Having passed that period an update license that covers another two years of free update service can be purchased for 19 Euros. Purchase can be made within the Meteobridge application via a PayPal button. Being out of update services users will stick to their current version, which will stay operational. Bug fixing and trouble shooting will focus on new versions, there are no plans on back-porting bug fixes or deploying new features to older versions. Meteobridge PROs are not subject of these changes, they still get all updates for free.

 +
 
 +
released April 30, 2017
 +
* Meteobridge PRO: fixes start/stop issue of OLED driver and improves CPU efficiency of OLED driver code.
 +
* Meteobridge PRO: improves "once" display scripts to erase static screen content (like smartbedded intro logo) when triggered. This helps to render screen black after each round of displaying weather data.
 +
 
 +
 
 +
released April 28, 2017
 +
* Meteobridge PRO: improves display operation. While default display scripts show weather data on the display in a loop for a period of 5 minutes, there are now script variants available that run throw the loop only one time and switch off display after that. These variants end with "once" in the drop-down list, where you select the display scripts. When you trigger these scripts every 2 minutes, you get about 40 seconds of data being displayed, then display goes off and starts again displaying data when 2 minutes are passed. This helps reducing screen wear-out while still providing you with data on the display.<BR>[[File:once-display-scritp.png|450px]]

* Meteobridge PRO: switches OLED into sleep mode after 5 minutes of inactivity. After that content is displayed for 3 secs every minute. When new data is sent to the display, it wakes up immediately and 5 minute countdown to sleep starts again. This measure protects display from early wear out. Timeout to sleep is hard coded and cannot be changed by the user right now.

 +
* Meteobridge PRO: adds a function on "History" tab that starts a complete reconstruction of the database from the recorded hourly values. This helps in situations, when time zone has changed and as a result higher level aggregated data for days, months, etc will not have the correct time stamps anymore. The reconstruction will take some time and during that period storing new data will delayed until reconstruction has finished. Per minute data for the last hours will be lost by performing this operation. Progress of reconstruction will be reflected in messages section of "System" tab.
 +
* Meteobridge PRO: fixes a deficiency, that database process can run into a failure loop, when some database tables are missing (because sensors might have been deleted on "History" tab). When this happens now, one error message will be reported and database table will be setup again to allow next operation on that sensor to be successful.
 +
* Meteobridge PRO: adds an adjustable boot delay. This allows the Meteobridge PRO to wait 1 to 5 minutes after a restart before reaching out to the Internet. Optional boot delay can be adjusted on "System" tab.
 +
* summarizes repeating entries from the logger process in the messages section of "System" tab.
 +

 +
 
 +
released January 29, 2017
 +
* fixes a bug that resets timezone to UTC when doing a reboot that forces to start in "LAN DHCP client" mode. This bug did show correct timezone settings on "system" tab but UTC was actually used.

 +
* Meteobridge PRO: adds a new tempminmax chart template to display min/max temperature values
 +
* Meteobridge PRO: adds a new allinoneminmax chart template that works like "allinone" but display min/max data which is suitable when looking for summary data on daily and monthly level. This charts show min, average and max values in the legend and also presents balloon data including date/time of min max data when moving the mouse to one of the data sets. As with all Meteobridge PRO charts, they are based on Javascript, which is embedded into a regular HTML file that can be uploaded to your server and can be presented there by iframing.
 +
* Meteobridge PRO: reflects selection of sensors to be used as primary sensors from "Live Data" tab when plotting charts.
 +

 +
released October 20, 2016
 +
* Meteobridge PRO: Redesign of lastchart handling to make sure chart generations executed at the same time and which triggered FTP upload events are handled the right way to avoid mixing up the order of execution. When changes have proven being bug free, same will be applied for handling data export events which currently can't be executed at the same time in parallel.

 +
released October 19, 2016
 +
* [[File:chart-gen-and-upload.png|right|550px]]Meteobridge PRO: Making use of automated chart generation and upload should now be fully supported. As there occured a few questions how to use it, I give an example on the right. As you can see, event #6 generates every full hour a chart of todays data just before the new hour shows up. This triggers event #7 which uploads the generated html chart to a web server and gives it the name "daychart-(year)-(month)-(day).html". Current data for year, month, day is inserted by means of "gnu c strftime" function, which defines "%Y" as year, "%m" as month, and "%d" as day. After successful upload, the local file on the Meteobridge PRO is deleted, as indicated by the "Delete file" mark.

 +
 
 +
released October 16, 2016
 +
* [[File:chart1.png|right]]Meteobridge PRO: initial support for generating charts. Feature is still beta, feedback from users is highly welcome. Charts can be defined on "Graphs" tab, where time period, resolution, language and chart type can be selected. Meteobridge shows chart inline and provides two URLs, where the chart can be accessed. "local URL" works in your LAN, while "remote URL" allows you to access it from the Internet, when you have remote access enabled. Charts can also be generated on "Services" tab in a periodical manner. Charts are stored as html pages in "charts" folder, which can be accessed as Meteobridge PC network folder. FTP Upload of charts is also supported, by which you can make these accessible on your web server. "chart:lastchart" mechanics can be used for an FTP upload triggered by making the chart (this works analogous to the "lastexport" item when uploading export files). There is only one chart defined right now (allinone) in iso and imperial flavor, but more to come. Chart definitions are located in "templates" folder and have extension ".chart". Meteobridge charts are based on the "amcharts.com" package which smartbedded has licensed in a redistributable way. Nevertheless, please be aware that you are not allowed to used the included chart libs for purposes outside Meteobridge. Meteobridge charts are interactive, you can select and deselect data, you can modify the time line, and much more. You find a chart generated by my Meteobridge PRO [http://tau.meteobridge.com/files/allinone-imp-min-201610150000-201610160000.html here]. Feel free to inspect it.

 +
* adds time control for periodic data exports to be triggered before or after a full hour, day, month, year has been started. Example: This allows to export all data of the current day just before day has passed (option: "before day break"). To be precise, this service is triggered when the day has just passed but data taken into account is limited to the day that has just passed. This makes definition of services that intend to export data of completed days/months/years more easy and straight forward.

 +
 
 +
 
 +
released July 12, 2016
 +
* Meteobridge PRO: massive rework of how data is stored. In essence there now is a pseudo persistent database keeping data in per minute resolution for the last 36 hours and a database in internal USB store that holds data on per hour/day/month/year level forever. Flash wear is reduced by about factor 60 and capacity of 8GB also looks to be overstated as USB database will grow very slowly. As so many code fractions needed to be adapted, there might still be some bugs here and there. Please report bugs to "info(at)meteobridge.com". We expect things going smooth after s short time.

 +
* makes use of a vector adding method to compute average wind direction. Result is no longer restricted to a fixed number of direction buckets (have been 16 in the past)
 +
* Meteobridge PRO: in order to eliminate the USB flash defects which are likely to occur after a certain time of use, we decided to dramatically reduce update interval of the internal database. Now data is only written every 15 minutes to the internal database. When this works flawless, update interval is planned to be further extended to every hour. As a result database will no longer provide per minute data. Nevertheless, the current 24h data will be available in RAM, so min/max/avg data of last minutes hours can still be computed correctly. RAM data also survives controlled reboots. Impact of stripping away the per minute database representation in regard to template variables is described in the Template section of the wiki.

Release Log

To have your Meteobridge running the latest SW release, just do a reboot or power-cycle. Updates are available for free for the first 2 years after initial license purchase. After that period you can buy another 2 years of updates for 19 Euro. Meteobridge PRO and NANO provide unlimited free updates.

Chapters below illustrate new features and bug fixes that have been realized in current and previous releases.


Version 5.1

released May 6, 2021:

  • Meteobridge PRO, NANO SD, RPI: offers a feature on "System - Administration" tab to copy data from a sensor to another sensor. This helps to cope with a situation where the sensor name has changed and you want to copy data from old sensor name over to the new one.


released May 2/3, 2021:

  • adapts sending of hourly rain data to "Weather365" network to send data of last hour within first 5 mins of current hour. This is needed as "weather365" is not able to compute hourly rain data from difference in total rain by themselves but relies on sending redundant information in an out of sync timeframe. This makes the "weather365" API the most inconsistent to deal with I have seen so far, but your milage may vary.
  • adapts sending of daily rain data to "Weather365" network same way as done with hourly data. Not sure which kind of inconsitencies will additionally show up. I would recommend to use this network with some caution regarding meaning and correctness of data.


released April 29, 2021:

  • allows outdoor temp/hum sensor of WMR300 to report 0% relative humidity without being blocked.


released April 25/26/27, 2021:

  • hopefully fixes a computational issue when reporting apparent temperature to "Weather365" network.
  • adds check against empty files when downloading templates from Meteobridge server. If empty, a reload is scheduled.
  • adds triggering exports on a certain day of the week and exporting last 7 days of data.


released April 24, 2021:

  • minor improvements on handling errors on TCP/IP socket connections.


released April 21, 2021:

  • adds data on humidex, apparent temperature and cloudbase when reporting data to network "Weather365".


released April 17, 2021:

  • fixes a bug how GW1000 reports lightning data, where strike count has been wrongly reported as energy.


released April 16, 2021:

  • fixes an issue in the automated location identification, which has been caused by API changes of the location provider.


released April 10, 2021:

  • adds support for weather network "Weather365" aka "Meteo-Services".


released April 9, 2021:

  • adds reporting of air quality data (PM 10, PM 2.5) to weather network "weather cloud".
  • fixes a bug when reporting "leafwetness" to weather network "awekas".


released April 8, 2021:

  • Meteobridge PRO, RPI, NANO SD: adds "endir", "dedir", "nldir" als converters to data exports. This was formerly defined for use in template expansions only, but not implemented for database exports.
  • fixes a bug where windchill and heatindex data was swapped for upload to Davis weatherlink network.
  • fixes a bug in reading country information in "System - Information" tab.
  • Meteobridge PRO, NANO SD, RPI: fixes a bug on preserving "nonzerotime" values.

released October 4, 2020

  • fixes some minor bugs regarding import functions and sensor mapping.
  • NANO SD: fixes some bugs regarding import features.


released October 2, 2020

  • Setdate.png
    adds a "set date" button on "Edit Data" tab to define date selected here being default date for operations on tab "Import / Export".
  • Importchunks.png
    import feature has been reworked. Support of compressed files (.zip and .gz) has been stripped to allow import of very large files by cutting those internally into chunks. When import gets started it is done in chunks of 240 secs, then pausing 2 minutes to allow the database to work on the regular requests. This is repeated until the import file is handled completely. Progress can be inspected in "Logging" section of "System" tab. As import of massive files takes rather long this is a major improvement as a) regular Meteobridge operation is not paused during import time and b) large files are handled in the background, no need to cut into smaller chunks and to import those one by one.
  • Mapping.png
    some rather fundamental changes in the sensor naming concept. Supporting multiple stations makes a change in the sensor naming schema necessary. From now on there will be two distinct views onto a given sensor.
    • physical sensor: A physical sensor does include all the details that is exactly determining a sensor. This includes station number, sensor type, sensor number, measurement category. Example: "thb1!0temp" is a combined thermo-hum-baro sensor (type: "thb") from station #1 (station: "1") with sensor ID 0 (number: "0") and measurement category "temp". Physical sensor names are best suited to exactly address a certain sensor.
    • logical sensor: A logical sensor abstracts from some details of a physical sensor. It does not carry a station ID, but represents a special meaning. For example "th0temp" and "th0hum" represent the classical outdoor temp-hum sensor, which delivers the temperature/humidity information to be broadcasted to weather networks or used in graphs or your exports. Meteobridge defines a set of logical sensors with a special meaning as you can see in the picture on the right. These logical sensors are mapped to the corresponding sensors of station #0 by default.
    • Mappeddata.png
      Mapping of logical sensors to physical sensors allows you to adapt Meteobridge weather network support and graphing to your specific setup of stations and sensors. When you have an extra temp-hum sensor with ID #1 on station #1 and want to use this for outside temp/hum reporting instead of the one delivered with the primary station, you can simply map "th1!1temp" to "th0temp" and "th1!1hum" to "th0hum" and "th1!1dew" to "th0dew". In case you have a good source for wind chill temperature on temp-hum extra sensor #5 on station #1, you might also map "th1!5temp" to "wind0chill". As you see, this mapping feature is extremely powerful. It allows to adapt predefined weather services in Meteobridge (which are using logical sensors) to your specific station and sensor setup. In the picture on the right you see the new "Mapping" tab in the "Station" section of Meteobridge. This tab reflects the mapping mentioned before. "Mapping" tab replaces former definition of primary sensors on "Min/Max Data" tab, which is now a tab for data inspection purposes only, without interaction. Green sensors are the ones with predefined meaning by default, yellow sensors indicate that these have been mapped individually, white sensors are not attached to a logical sensor and can only be addressed as physical sensors. When moving the mouse over a sensor you get the mapping (if any) displayed as a balloon text.
  • updates Italian language pack
  • introduces an new sub page "mapping" that allows for mapping of physical sensors "th1!0temp" to logical sensors like "th0temp". This mapping page replaces former definition on primary sensors on "Min/Max Data" tab, which is now a tab for data inspection purposes only, without interaction. Green sensors are the ones with predefined meaning, yellow sensors indicate that these have been mapped individually.


released September 26, 2020

  • Nologgerrestart.png
    adds a feature to avoid restarting of data logger when a certain station does not provide new data in the time frame defined by "data hold" parameter. This feature can be switched on/off for each particular station.
  • NANO SD: fixes a bug related to latitude/longitude settings on Weather34 dashboard.
  • removes blocking of upload to WeatherCloud network in case essential data like wind, temperature, pressure is missing.


released September 23, 2020

  • NANO SD: fixes a shortly introduced bug that prevents from installing the new local Weather34 dashboard. Please use "Reinstall" button to install again, if local dashboard cannot be started on your NANO SD.
  • switches with Davis Airlink from "pm_XXX_last" to "pm_XXX" to avoid zero readings.
  • adds code to ignore phantom gust spikes on W835 weather stations.
  • Meteobridge PRO: fixes a shortly introduced bug, where rain bucket sizes were ignored and always defaulted to 0.01 inch.
  • Meteobridge NANO SD: fixes a bug when entering setup screen of new Weather34 dashboard from remote.


released September 19/20, 2020

  • adds support for ObserverIP's new firmware that reports air quality for indoor (air0pm) and outdoor (air1pm) sensors.
  • fixes a bug that applies calibration of a specific sensor to all identical named sensors of additional stations (thb0temp, thb1!0temp, thb2!0temp, ...).
  • fixes some bugs regarding user-defined plugins.
  • fixes a bug when defining calibration factor or offset of sensors from additional (non-primary) weather stations.
  • Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: supports sensors from non-primary weather stations in exports and charts. Sensor number is replaced by station number an exclamation mark followed by the sensor number. Example "th1!1temp" addresses sensor "th1temp" from station 1. Sensors from primary station (station 0) do not need the station prefix "0!". Therefore, "th0!0temp" is identical to "th0temp". That way you don't have to change your existing chart, export and template definitions.
  • Meteobridge NANO & NANO SD: adds option to use user-defined plugins.
  • Dashboardtab.png
    Meteobridge NANO SD: adds a new second row tab "Weather Dashboard" which allows you to have a look at your current data in the famous Weather34 style. On the tab you can select if data should be transferred into this dashboard. When you launch the dashboard it will come up in a separate window (your browser needs to allow Meteobridge to open a window). The dashboard can also be reached from the Internet, if you enabled Meteobridge remote login. Dashboard does not provide charts. You can add your WU API key to include weather forecasts from WU. Please don't forget to set time zone and UTC difference on the dashboard configuration page. Many thanks to Brian for developing this fantastic looking dashboard.
Dashboard34.png


released September 16/17, 2020

  • Fast.png
    adds a "quick navigation" feature that allows a direct jump onto the tabs of the second row. When mouse moves over the tab name, a list with accessible sub-tabs is popping up so that the desired sub-tab can be directly selected. This is a short cut for first selecting a tab from the first row, waiting until the page has built up and then selecting the sub-tab where you want to go.
  • fixes shortly broken support for "OberserverIP" stations.
  • fixes a bug when using non-metric units for sensor calibration on tab "Weather Station" -> "Settings".


released September 13/14/15, 2020

  • Airlink.png
    adds support for Davis Airlink, which needs to be integrated as an additional weather station with its own IP. This station reports temperature, humidity and 3 particle values (pm_1, pm_2.5, pm_10).
  • fixes bug that prevents adding stations.
  • fixes not being able to make initial use of IP given for Observerip or GW1000 stations.
  • fixes number of supported language translation entires to 2000 instead of 1200.
  • fixes bug not supporting "via Console" RF reveiving option on Metebridge PRO red or Meteostick equipped Meteobridges.


released September 12, 2020

  • adds experimental support for new Ecowitt WH45 sensor (temp, hum, air quality and CO2).
  • silently reestablish tcpip connection drops (caused by the weather station) without doing a complete disconnect/connect station cycle.
  • Design of "Weather Station" tab has changed significantly in order to allow definition of multiple weather stations. Station is picked from a drop-down selection from the list of supported models. Then type of connection (USB, TCPIP, etc) is choosen and finally additional information like serial device or IP address is specified. Meteobridge takes care that only models that can be connected to your specific Meteobridge platform are presented. Beside the primary weather station a maximum of 4 additional stations can be connected to and evaluated by Meteobridge. This works even on the least powerful platforms like MR3020v1. The gallery below shows a Meteobridge MR3020v1 connected to five different weather station models in parallel.
  • Prim2.png
    Template variables are modified to handle multi-station situations. Sensors of the primary station can be addressed as before like "th0temp". "th0temp" sensor of first additional station can be addressed as "th1!0temp". The "1!" prefix indicates additional station #1, "2!" prefix denotes additional station #2 and so on. As before you define which sensors are used as primary sensors used for reporting to weather networks (on tab "Live Data" -> "Data Min/Max"). Their names are displayed in green. You can change that be clicking on one of the yellow sensors and stating that this one should be used as a primary sensor. Definition of primary sensors has not changed, you just have more options when using multiple stations.
  • adds support for user-defined plugins that can feed data from not natively supported weather stations to Meteobridge. This is done in terms of a simple, user-defined shell script that posts data to /dev/stdout in an endless loop. Format of data to be provided can be derived from the attached example script "simulstation.plugin" that provides random data for sensors thb0, th0, t0, rain0, wind0, uv0, sol0, data0. Plugin files need to have extension ".plugin" and can be located in "scripts" folder (only on PRO and NANOSD platforms) or can be loaded from an URL (on all Meteobridge platforms).

  • updates on Dutch language file, thanks to Gerhard (https://weeropdeveluwe.nl)
  • updates maximum length of HTTP calls on "Services" tab to 8192 instead of 4096 bytes.


released August 18, 2020

  • Calib.png
    replaces the old mechanism to calibrate some sensors groups (wind0/rain0/th0/etc.) by a more general approach that allows for calibrating any sensor you like. "Station" tab has a sub tab "Settings" where you can define calibration. Calibration is done in terms of an offset and a factor. Although Meteobridge computes internally with metric units, you can apply calibrations in imperial units, if you like. It will be recalculated internally. The used calculation formular is displayed for you to understand how it works. Settings defined previously should be automatically converted into the new format.


released August 17, 2020

  • fixes a bug in regard to moisture updates via new AWEKAS upload format.
  • some minor improvements on "2 row tab" GUI.


released August 16, 2020

  • 2rowtabs.png
    introduces a new navigation schema for Meteobridge admin web interface. As the content on some tabs has grown over the past the pages were getting longer and longer so that a lot of scrolling was needed. We now changed to a 2-row tab approach, where the content of a tab is divided into "sub tabs" where appropriate. This should make navigation more convenient and also gives room for more features in the future. Color schema is not the best in the world, but I think it is not too much pain in the eyes. Please do a "shift reload" with your browser to empty its cache on CCS and background GIFs. When you face any quirks regarding the new GUI, please report in the forum.

released February 9/10, 2020:

  • fixes a newly introduced bug around unit conversions in templates.


released February 8, 2020

  • Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: allows period parameter of "export.cgi" script to specify a range. Example: "period=20191201-20200115" specifies range from Dec 1, 2019 until Jan 15, 2020 (end date is excluded so it is effectively until 23:59 Jan 14, 2020).


released February 1, 2020

  • expands conversion options of template variables by a generic factor/offset model. Example: "[th0temp-act=f0,5+3,5:-]" returns the current outdoor temperate in degrees Fahrenheit but multiplies the result with 0.5 (factor) and adds 3.5 (offset) to it. If factor or offset contain decimals, these need to be written with a comma "," instead of the dot "." because the dot has a special meaning when used with template variables. Factors and offsets can also be applied to export and chart definitions.


released January 30, 2020

  • Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: "export.cgi" script can now handle url encoded parameters.

Version 4.2

    adds two buttons for remote login feature. "Open URL" does open a new browser window/tab based on the remote login link, "Copy URL" copies the remote link into the clipboard.

released January 23, 2020

  • Export2.png
    Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: allows to feed "export.cgi" function with a template string instead of a pre-defined template file. Please keep in mind that these templates are used for mass data export from the database and they are not providing the conversion features known from the regular templates. Example: export.cgi?period=202001&resolution=day&template=[YYYY]-[MM]-[DD],[epoch],[th0temp-avg.1:],[th0temp-min.1:],[th0temp-max.1:],[th0hum-avg.0:] returns the data on the right.

  • Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: fixes a bug on importing Meteohub raw data, where temperatures were partly import wrong by factor 10 when they were below zero.


released January 4, 2020

  • Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: fixes a bug on importing Meteohub raw data, where sea level pressure was imported wrong by factor 10.
  • Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: fixes a bug where addressing data back into last year with "@Mx" selector points into the void.
  • adds new sensor "wind0maxdir" that reports wind direction of maximum gust in the requested time frame. Example: [wind0maxdir-dmax:-] reports wind direction of todays maximum gust. [wind0maxdir-dmax=endir:-] does the same but reports as a text like "NWN" instead of degrees north. New "wind0maxdir" data starts being collected from installation of this version on, so it will not work back into the past.


released January 2, 2020

  • Htmlgen.png
    Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: adds a service that generates HTML and text files based on a template file or a directly specified template description. Resulting file is stored in the "html" folder on the PC network share of the Meteobridge.
  • Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: fixes an issue where most recent per minute data is not reflected in the hourly min/max or rain totals until the current hour has been finished.

  • fixes a bug regarding rain reporting for weather network "Meteomap Cloud" on some stations.


released October 12, 2019

  • reduces upload buffer size for Meteoplug Cloud network on systems with 32 MB RAM only. This is to avoid stalls/reboots on MR3020, MR3040, WR703N because of too low available RAM when buffers have filled up over time.


released October 6, 2019

  • Wlcloud.png
    adds support for a new personal weather data upload service named "WL Cloud". This feature is only available for Meteobridges connected to a Davis data logger (Console or Envoy, not Envoy8x). It directly uploads data from the logger (not data from the Meteobridge) to an URL of your liking. Data consists of LOOP, HILOWS and DMPAFT data sets as provided from the Davis logger. Upload format is similar (and might be compatible) to what Davis uses to feed their weatherlink network. To have your web server ready for receiving the data, please use this perl code, which stores uploaded packet content on your server in separate files for further processing. Code is very simple and provides some comments to understand what kind of data is stored in the files. Feel free to use this code and change/distribute as you like.


Version 4.1

released October 5, 2019

  • changes time stamp for meteoclimatic uploads to "UTC" by dropping the "UPD" line.
  • fixes bug in "APM" selector for "moonrise" and "moonset" variables.

  • adds UTC data to uploads to weather network meteoclimatic.
  • Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: fixes not showing rain total data in graph on history tab.
  • has all images converted to GIF to free up some RAM.
  • gives a bit more RAM headroom for platforms MR3020, MR3040 and WR703N when not using "Acurite Bridge" as weather station. This is to compensate for using new, bigger openssl libs to support TLS-only HTTPS uploads on those platforms.


released September 21, 2019

  • W835large.png
    fixes a bug that made version 4.1 not working properly on the less often used TL-MR3040 platform.

released September 8, 2019

  • adds weather network Meteomap.cloud with a focus on weather maps and weather station data sites.
  • Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: adds chart template "allinone-wind1st-iso" which is a variant of "allinone-iso" with wind data on the top.
  • Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: template variable selector "nonzerotime" does now withstand a restart of the logger process.


released September 4, 2019

  • fixes below mentioned issue for Meteobridge on TL-MR3040 platform.


released August 31, 2019

  • fixed an issue where TL-WR703N systems do not load complete application stack of version 4.1. This has been caused by a tmpfs overflow because of downloading new openssl libs in order to allow HTTPS traffic to websites supporting TLS only (no SSL).


released August 28, 2019

  • "template.cgi" endpoint does not return HTTP error codes 503 and 504 if template cannot be evaluated for any reason. This makes it more easy for a reading processes to react correctly.


released August 27, 2019

  • fixes a twitter openssl issue introduced with the previous release.


released August 25/26, 2019

  • updates openssl and wget support on MR3020 and Meteobridge PRO platform to handle HTTPS targets that do no longer support SSL (but only TLS) due to security concerns. Previous error message "OpenSSL: Error ... reason(1040)" should be resolved by this.


released August 19/20, 2019


released August 16, 2019

  • when computing sunrise, sunset and daylength data the current day is determined by using local time instead of UTC.
  • adds "daysum", "monthsum" and "yearsum" as selectors for template variables in export definitions. This allows for example to sum up daily rain in an export file that has rows in an hourly resolution.


released August 15, 2019

  • changes automated payment method from "PayPal" to "MyCommerce". This gives you more flexibility on payment options. When transaction is done, you get a license key to be manually entered on "License" tab and saved. Having done that, Meteobridge needs to be restarted to come up licensed. Update licenses to purchase additional 2 years of SW updates are handled the same way.


Version 4.0

released August 11/14/15, 2019

  • Resetdash.png
    Meteobridge PRO: fixes a bug that stalls logger operation when Davis Weatherlink Live has once been selected as station.
  • Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: adds reset button to local HWS dashboard to allow a fresh install of the dashboard in case code has not been completely installed or is corrupted.


released August 10, 2019

  • adds support for additional air quality sensors for GW1000 station. Up to 4 air quality sensors are now supported.


released August 8, 2019

  • Windyid.png
    adds a field "Station ID" to weather network Windy to allow feed multiple stations within one Windy account. Default station id is "0".
  • Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: fixes a bug on wind speed import from WSWIN export files.


released August 4, 2019

  • Wr902acv3.png
    Meteobridge is now available for the TP-Link WR902AC Version 3.x router. Preparing_Hardware#Flashing_Meteobridge_Firmware_to_TL-WR902AC_(version_3.x) section explains how to make a Meteobridge out of the WR902ACv3 standard router. Meteobridge supports the 2.4 GHz WLAN but not the 5 GHz mode. Flashing needs to be done by a TFTP server (as with MR3020 Version 3.x). Currently, there is no VM available that has the necessary TFTP service enabled, so you will have to set this up on your PC on your own.


released July 27, 2019

  • fixes a bug when uploading data to "Wetterring" network, where max pressure of the month has been falsely reported as max pressure of the day.
  • adds support for more sensors on the discontinued Accurite smart hub.

  • adds support for air quality reporting to weather underground and ambientweather network.


released May 18, 2019

  • Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: fixes a bug on Meteohub raw data import.
  • adds support for soil and leaf sensors to Davis WLL.


released May 11, 2019

  • fixes a bug that prevented from making use of the optional "delete file after upload" option when doing SFTP file uploads.
  • Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: adds a generic import function called "direct" to support easy import of natively not supported data formats. All the other supported import formats are internally converted to this format and then imported. A section on import formats has been added to the wiki: PRO_Tutorial#Data_Import


released May 10, 2019

  • Wll-res.png
    adds rain bucket resolution option to Davis Weather Link Live station.
  • changes wind direction reported to network "windy.com" to 2 minutes average instead of current direction.


released May 5, 2019

  • adds experimental support for Davis Weather Link Live device. This is still very experimental, intended to find bugs with the help of Meteobridge users. No way ready for production. We still need a leaf/soil station connected to a WLL to read out and understand the data format for that particular sensor type.

Version 3.9

released May 5, 2019

  • version 3.9 finalized.


released April 28, 2019

  • Gw1000.png
    adds support for new weather station gateway GW1000 from Fine Offset. GW1000 collects data from up to 8 WH31 sensors (temp/hygro with display), 16 WH51 sensors (soil temp and moisture with sensor cable and display), a WS68 sensor unit delivering outdoor temp/hum, wind and uv/solar data, a Wh40 rain counter, and finally a WH41 air quality meter. The GW1000 gateway connects via WiFi to your LAN and provides data to the Meteobridge, when Meteobridge is told the IP of the GW1000. Apart from the standard set the GW1000 supports soil sensors and an air quality sensor. Implementation has been tested with quite a few sensors in the meanwhile. Please report bugs in the corresponding thread in the forum.


released April 22, 2019

  • Meteobridge PRO: fixes a bug that prevented some Meteobridge PRO to install latest scripts and support files.


released April 20, 2019

  • fixes the pressure bug when sending data to windy.
  • Newvocore2.png
    Meteobridge NANO: adds TX power boost mode for the new batch of NANOs (left picture, with a red strap instead of a black strap). This option makes use of the better RF power emission of the new batch of VoCore2 modules. Please be aware that this mode draws so much power that the console needs support by additional batteries or (better) a more juicy power supply (minimum 500 mA). The standard 300 mA power supply of the Davis console cannot feed this mode, voltage will plump on WiFi operation and make the NANO reboot. Please use this mode only, when you experience WiFi reach problems. If your WiFi operation is fine, don't mess with this mode. Black strap NANOs don't have this option.


released April 18, 2019

  • Windy.png
    adds weather network windy.com. It needs an API key that users can generate once they have registered an account.


released April 15, 2019

  • more changes on OpenWeatherMap support. Meteobridge does now check for a station already being registered at the provided API key. If not, Meteobridge will register a station. If there is already a station registered the first one from the list (in case there are multiple stations registered) will be used by Meteobridge for uploading. This is still experimental, but please give it a try. Deleting the stations Meteobridge might have registered before is a good step to start with. OpenWeatherMap API documentation explains how to delete stations via HTTP requests. I am still disappointed that OpenWeatherMap does not provide features to setup/maintain/delete stations within their web interface, which is clearly the right way to go.


released April 14, 2019

  • fixes a repetitive registration of station at openweathermap. Station registration is now only done one time.


released April 13, 2019

  • Meteobridge NANO SD: fixes missing ".wswin.exp" file that is needed for continous WSWIN data exports.

  • Cabure.png
    adds support for agriculture weather network Caburé in Argentina.
  • adds periodical triggers for "every two days" and "weekly".
  • fixes template variable "mbsystem-station" to report name of selected station type.
  • NANO SD: fixes newly introduced bug which inhibits backup script execution.
  • Owmapi3.png
    switches support for OpenWeatherMap to their new API 3.0. This was necessary because upload using legacy API is no longer available for new users. Using API 3.0 needs you to enter the APP ID you are granted by OpenWeatherNet when setting up your account. When you enter APP ID and station name and press "save" a station ID will be automatically assigned at OpenWeatherMap. Support for this rather complicated and complicated to use weather network is still experimental.


released March 17, 2019

  • Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: fixes a bug that can make Meteobridge reboot when doing a database backup.
  • adds experimental support for Davis LOOP2 packet evaluation when Meteobridge is in "slave" mode. In "slave" mode a PC connects to the Meteobridge on port 22222 and takes over control by directly accessing the Davis console and taking over control.
  • adds Davis forecast texts in Spanish. Corresponding template variable is "texteshtml".


released March 13, 2019

  • improves handling of semaphores in "template.cgi" script which can be used for polling weather data from the Meteobridge as HTTP replies. This should solve situations where the script did no longer report data when being interrupted once.


released March 11, 2019

  • fixes a bug that limits AWEKAS uploads not to be less often than every 5 minutes when using fastlink option.


released March 2, 2019

  • Data21.png
    Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: allows to feed alien data (as "data21num") into Meteobridge by providing an executeable shell script as /root/datafeed that returns "data21 xxx", where xxx is an integer number which will be divided by 100 when used by Meteobridge. Example: File "/root/datafeed" is defined as follows and presents value "100.00" on the live data display for sensor "data21num":
#!/bin/sh
#
echo "data21 10000"
exit 0


released February 5, 2019

  • fixes data logger stalls when using Meteoplug graphing server uploads.

released January 26, 2019

  • fixes bugs on date/time format, solar radiation and UV index when uploading to meteoclimatic network
  • fixes bad data issue when reading Vantage RF data directly and temperature is below zero Fahrenheit. Only some Davis temp sensors have been affected.
  • Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: adds support for chart languages Dutch and French.


released January 17, 2019

  • fixes a bug for outdoor temp sensors for some Davis Vantage2 units when using Meteobridge PRO or Meteostick for data reception.


released January 13, 2019

  • Meteoclim.png
    adds support for weather network meteoclimatic. Data is uploaded to the Meteobridge server and meteoclimatic data collector needs to be told the URL where to pick the data from. URL is individual and provided as "Data Link" on Meteobridge "Weather Network" tab. Green marks just indicate that the Meteobridge server did store the data, it does not show if meteoclimatic has grabbed data from there. This loose coupling is one of the disadvantages of the "drop and forget" data upload schema, you don't get feedback if data has finally reached its destination.


released January 6, 2019

  • Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: adds export template "wswin-monthly" to generate monthly data exports for WSWIN (just on hourly level).


released January 5, 2019

  • Wswin.png
    Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: adds a weather network entry "WSWIN Data Feed" that allows to build "import.csv" files in network folder "export". WSWIN can be pointed to this file to read data ongoing in per minute resolution from the Meteobridge. Interval to build this file can be between every 5 minutes up to every hour. Please keep in mind that doing short intervals will add to the wear of your USB or SD-card storage in the Meteobridge.
  • Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: adds option "pragma exportfile=xyz" to be used within export templates. Using this option will store export data with filename "xyz" in export folder instead using template name and selected time frame and resolution as file name.
  • Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: adds option "pragma append=y" to be used in order to add more line to an already existing file without repeating the header lines. Using this option is helpful to incrementally add data to an export file.
  • adds soil temperature and soil moisture values of a Davis Vantage to be reported to ambientweather network.


released January 2, 2019

  • Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: adds option "pragma crlf=y" to be used within export templates. Using this option will result into an export file with Windows style terminated lines (CR+LF) instead of just LF.
  • stabilizes initialization sequence of Davis Vantage consoles by optimized timing.

Version 3.8

released January 1, 2019

  • fixes a newly introduced bug regarding data upload to homeweatherstation template.

  • Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: adds "Meteotemplate" and "Cumulus Monthly Reports" as import format. Please realize that support of all that new data import functions is still beta, as I don't have excessive data to test with.


released December 22, 2018

  • Import1.png
    Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: adds data import function on "Hirstory tab. In a first step import of Meteohub raw data files and Meteoplug monthly export files are supported. Files can be zipped (".zip") or gnuzipped (".gz") or plain text. Files need to be copied into "import" folder on PC network share provided by Meteobridge. There is an option to skip malformed records or to halt import. Meteohub and Meteoplug provide up to 4 million raw data records per months, so this can take half an hour (NANO SD) or an hour (PRO) to import. While import is running, new logged data is queued and stored into database when import is done. Feeding of weather networks is halted during the import.


released December 20, 2018

  • adds support for ELV RS350 room climate logger, which provides 5 indoor sensors only (neither wind, pressure nor rain data).
  • directs link to weather cam inside HomeWeatherStation Dashboard to the Meteobridge Camera Service, which uploads your local weather camera pictures to the Meteobridge server in the Internet. You first have to enable this service on "Weather Net" tab.
  • adds support for IP connected Lufft WS10 stations.
  • Meteobridge on TL-MR3020v3: adds a feature that allows to act as a TFTP server to flash more TL-MR3020v3 devices into Meteobridges. All needed is to browse to "http://ip-of-your-meteobridge/cgi-bin/clone.cgi" and to follow instructions. This does not help you to flash the first TL-MR3020v3 but allows you to more easily replicate once you have one running.


released December 9, 2018

  • Meteobridge PRO & NANO: improves tests for WiFi connection issues and rebuilding WiFi connection if needed.
  • Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: shows data overview graphs on "History" tab in imperial units, when "imperial" flag is marked.
  • Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: improves handling of "lastchart.html" pointer, which now can handle generation and FTP upload of multiple charts at same point in time (as long as FTP uploads are directly triggered by a chart generation event).
  • fixes bug that limits firmware updates for Meteostick to version 2.5.1 instead of using newest version 2.5.2
  • adds support for Meteostick firmware updates to TL-MR3020v3 platform.


released December 5, 2018

released December 4, 2018

  • Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: fixes a yesterday introduced bug on data export function and fixes operation of "emptylines=n/y" pragma operation.


released December 3, 2018

  • Meteobridge PRO and NANO: changes code to potentially improve WLAN long-term stability.
  • Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: when calling a chart, URL parameter "sensormap" allows to use alternative sensors instead of the ones programmed in the chart definition. Assume a chart shows data for "thb0" and "th0" then adding "&sensormap=th1,thb9" to the chart URL will make the chart to show data for "th1" instead of "th0" and data for "thb9" instead of "thb0". This is an easy work-around to avoid definition of duplicated charts for various sensors of the same kind.
  • Meteobridge NANO: changes reboot handling slightly.


released December 1, 2018

  • Meteobridge NANO: supports special character "$" in WiFi passphrase.
  • Meteobridge NANO SD: fixes dashboard graph for yearly wind speeds.

    Meteobridge NANO SD: We did a port of Brian's famous HomeWeatherStation template to run on the NANO SD. To have this activated it just needs you to select "Local Dashboard" on "Weather Network" tab and then to give it an upload interval. In order to have current conditions and forecast information on the dashboard, you need to signup to DarkSky an CheckWX services, both free of charge for private use. The HomeWeatherStation dashboard receives historical data from the NANO SD database and makes use of the Meteobridge charting engine powered by the amcharts JavaScript package. Dashboard can be used locally in your LAN but also from the Internet by a remote link. To access the dashboard no credentials of the Meteobridge admin web interface are needed. Dashboard also adapts to mobile devices. This is the first time we offer a powerful dashboard, locally hosted on a Meteobridge without any need for setting up a web server. We hope you enjoy this feature and I have to say a big thanks to Brian, who was so generous to allow me to bundle his template with the Meteobridge software in order to make it most easy for you to use. In case of technical interest you can download my adaption of HomeWeatherStation template from here. Let us realize for a moment that all this is provided by a stamp-sized module in the back of a Davis console! Future is now ;-)

    Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: fixes a bug where "max1" and similar template selectors return no data, but being data available.
  • Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: makes non iterating part of an export template (the lines that start with "$") subject to general template variable replacements. This allows to add summary information about a month to an export that in principle just iterates all the days of the month. This is a new fundamental features to generate summary reports.
  • Meteobridge PRO & NANO SD: adds NOAA like monthly reports a templates for data export. Both styles, ISO and IMP are available ("NOAA-monthly-iso" and "NOAA-monthly-imp"). These template allow to automatically generate a monthly weather data file in NOAA style file which can then be sent via email to an interested user or uploaded via FTP to a server.
  • Meteobridge NANO SD: initializes SMB user "meteobridge" with password "meteobridge" on first start.

released October 1, 2018

  • Meteobridge PRO: fixes a bug when generating an export file for data of a year in hourly resolution. Formerly the export of data got stuck in an endless loop when reaching the boundary where winter time skips to summer time. This resulted into filling up of all disk space and a stalled export process.


  • slightly increases longitude and latitude precision when using CWOP weather network or other APRS services. We removed a not so appropriate rounding in the formula used for coordinate transformation.
  • fixes a bug on recording rainfall data when using a WeatherFlow station.


released September 22, 2018

  • Consoleread.png
    adds feature to transfer rain totals for day, month, year from Davis Vantage/Vue console to Meteobridge. Not supported on Meteobridge PRO.
  • adds feature to transfer min/max data of some sensors from Davis Vantage/Vue console to Meteobridge. This is recommended for initial setup only as it might result into inconsistencies (thb0seapress data is provided, but no thb0press data) and it will also erase date/time stamps for those sensors as the console does not provide date/time stamps for all min/max values). Not supported on Meteobridge PRO.
  • Meteobridge NANO: adds a feature to compensate for heating-up the console a bit by the NANO plug-in. This results into higher indoor temp readings as they actual are. An offset to compensate for that can be specified in Fahrenheit or Celsius. Recommended value is -6° Fahrenheit.


released August 25, 2018

  • adds support for HTTPS URLs for grabbing web cam pictures.


Nanobatch.jpg
New Meteobridge_NANO is now available! You find list of resellers here. It is mainly a full Meteobridge shrunk to stamp size and serving as a plug-in for Davis Vantage/Vue consoles. It can't be easier to bring a Davis station into the Internet with all the features a Meteobridge has to offer.


released August 24, 2018

  • improves handling of min/max time stamps. In case sensor is not there a request for the timestamp of a min/max event does now correctly default to the replacement string.
  • Meteobridge PRO: adds "[sun0total-daysum.2:0.0]" to realtime.txt template in order to support 3rd party sunshine sensors for Davis Vantage.


released August 17, 2018

  • some changes in handling data coming in over a TCP/IP socket connection. This should reduce logger disconnect/connect cycles when being connected with a Davis WLIP device.
  • skips an demanded updating of Davis console time/date when difference is less than 60 seconds. This helps to reduce write cycles on flash storage in Davis console.


released August 15, 2018

  • fixes a bug that Davis console initialization remains incomplete when all setup options are selected.
  • adds a feature to set logging interval of the Davis data logger. This interval is meaningless for Meteobridge operation (as Meteobridge does not rely on the Davis logger) but might be interesting, when a PC connects directly via port 22222 to the Davis logger.


released August 14, 2018

  • improves Davis console initialization code to better handle when console is in manual setup mode and does not respond to remote setup commands. In case of a failed remote setup this will be noticed in the "system messages" field.
  • adds information about usage of Davis repeaters and retransmit settings of Davis console in "system messages" field.


released August 12, 2018

  • Fastlink.png
    support for AWEKAS fast link. When using an AWEKAS subscription-based "station web" service you can upload data in intervals down to every 30 seconds. All you need is to set the corresponding mark and to add your individual fastlink key to the AWEKAS credentials on your Meteobridge "weather network" tab.
  • adapts Davis Vantage forecast text regarding expected North directed wind shifts, which need to be directed to the South when station is located on the south globe.


released July 26, 2018

  • fixes a bug on platforms TL-MR3020v3 and TL-WR902AC that inhibited to make use of a bridged device on the Meteobridge LAN port by Meteobridge itself. Example: Meteobridge is connected via WiFi to your LAN and has a webcam directly connected to its LAN port. So far on TL-MR3020v3 and TL-WR902AC this webcam has been connected with the LAN fine (when bridge mode on Meteobridge is enabled on "Network" tab) but Meteobridge itself was not able to connect to it (while every other device in your LAN could). This bug is fixed now. Please note that only the mentioned new platforms have been impacted by that.


released July 20, 2018

  • switches over to a new latitude/longitude reference web page on "system" tab as the former one was restricted to certain countries in the course of GDPR.

  • adds setup menu on "Weather Station" when Davis Vantage Pro2 or Vue is selected. This is extremely handy when you cannot reach the Davis console physically or if your have a Davis Envoy and don't want to use the Davis PC program to have those settings applied. Following settings can be done:
    • date and time as received from the Internet
    • longitude, latitude, timezone and altitude based on the settings specified within the Meteobridge
    • rain collector size (also rain season start as defined by Meteobridge)
    • wind cup size (for Vantage Pro2 only)
    • display modes for console regarding time and date format

  • Tl-mr3020v3.png
    todays release of a new firmware version (1.3) for TP-Link MR3020 V3 ** WHICH NOW ALSO SUPPORTS WIFI ** gives Meteobridge a cheap, capable and world-wide available Meteobridge platform for years to come. Compared to the legacy MR3020 we have double the ROM/RAM and we don't no longer need any USB hubs in order to have a USB weather station connected. When you had a former Meteobridge firmware installed on MR3020 V3 we strongly recommend to upgrade to the new one. Doing so will need to have your license adapted. Please contact "info(at)meteobridge.com" by providing the MAC of your unit, we will swap the license to the newly flashed MR3020 V3. Please visit hardware section to understand how to flash a MR3020 V3 and where to find the firmware image.

  • some minor additions to Dutch language support


released March 10, 2018

  • adds template variable expressions "[mbsystem-primarysensors:]" and "[mbsystem-noprimarysensors:]" to control inside a template if "0" sensors (like th0, wind0, rain0, etc) should be replaced by sensors defined on "Live Data" tab as primary or taken literally. The mentioned template expressions are evaluated to the empty string and thereby do nothing directly in your template but control how variables are evaluated as a side effect.
  • Centrally hosted upload template for "Hetweeractuel" has been updated to use primary sensors: http://templates.meteobridge.com/hetweeractueel.template


released March 4, 2018

  • fixes a factor 10 bug on solar radiation measurement for WH2308 / 4000 weather stations.

  • Meteoagro.png
    adds weather network "Meteoagro NET"


released February 24, 2018

  • Wflogo.png
    Wflow-300.png
    adds full support for WeatherFlow AIR and SKY stations. Although these stations are part of your LAN/WLAN Meteobridge does not need to know their IP. This is a cool feature made possible by the station that sends data out as UDP broadcasts. Backside of this very convenient technique is, that the data cannot be routed and by that Meteobridge cannot connect to a WeatherFlow station outside the local LAN/WLAN.
  • adds a feature to address the sensors marked on "Live Data" tab as primary in template definitions. Please read details here...
    Since version 3.6 Meteobridge also supports selection of a sensor which has been defined on "Live Data" tab as primary. When no primary selection has been made all the "0" sensors (like "th0temp", "wind0wind", etc) are primary by default. But when you select "th3temp" as primary sensor and by that its data is reported as your stations outdoor temperature to all the weather networks, then you can now also select the primary sensor in your template definitions by selecting it as the "*" sensor. For example: "th*temp" selects the sensors defined as the primary outdoor temp sensor. When you use "[th*temp-act:--]" you get the current temperature of your primary outdoor temp sensor. This will be a synonym to "[th0temp-act:--] as long as you have not selected another sensor as primary outdoor temp sensor. But when you have selected "th3temp" to be the primary outdoor temp sensor, then "th*temp" will reference to "th3temp" instead of "th0temp". Please be aware that Meteobridge versions before version 3.6 will fail to evaluate "*" sensors. Therefore, it is recommended to provide both notations in a template and to make use of the conditional evaluation as explained in a later chapter. Here is an example that takes "th0temp" as default outdoor sensor on older Meteobridge versions and newer "th*temp" notation on current ones: #if{*[mbsystem-swversion:1.0]>=3.6*}#then#outdoor temp: [th*temp-act:--]°C#else#outdoor temp: [th0temp-act:--]°C#fi#

released January 28, 2018

  • Tl-mr3020v3.png
    Support for version 3 hardware of the TL-MR3020 from TP-Link has been added. This support does come with two caveats:
    • As we are lacking reliable working Open Source WiFi drivers for this new device, Meteobridge can currently offer LAN operation only. It remains unclear if/when this limit can be lifted.
    • The stock firmware only accepts updates of TP-Link signed updates. By that the Meteobridge firmware cannot be flashed to the device by the web interface. To work around this you have to setup of a TFTP server on your PC that provides the Meteobridge firmware for flashing. Flashing itself is easy, but it needs you to setup the TFTP server first.
  • You find a description how to flash the MR3020v3 in the "Preparing Hardware" section and can have a look at the hardware details of this new platform in "hardware" section. First tests indicate that this version 3 of the MR3020 does no longer need a USB hub to connect to the weather stations, which is nice. As Meteobridge support for MR3020v3 is brand new, there will for sure still be some bugs. We are happy when you report those in the forum, so that we can get rid of them fast. As with all new ports, please be a bit patient if it takes a few days until an issue is solved.


released January 27, 2018

  • some minor bug fixes on the new Meteobridge release for TL-WR902AC platform.
  • fixes a bug with the firmware download links on "Preparing Hardware" page.
  • adds Turkish language option and improves Dutch language support.


released January 24, 2018

  • Tl-wr902ac.png
    New hardware TL-WR902AC from TP-Link has been added to the list of supported devices. "Hardware" section and "Preparing Hardware" section are updated and explain how to flash these devices. The WR902 offers twice the RAM and Flash-ROM compared to MR3020, which makes developing SW for it a bit more relaxed. Feature-wise Meteobridge on this device is identical to all the other non-pro Meteobridge platforms. While WR902AC is able to operate on the 5 GHz band Meteobridge is currently only operating in the standard 2.4 GHz Band. This shouldn't be an issue as there are rarely any 5 GHz only WLANs and 2.4 GHz has anyway better RF reach and we don't really need top speed for Meteobridge operation. If the WR902AC also needs a USB hub to connect to USB 1.x weather stations is not known yet. It also has an Atheros chip, but it is another model and may be the drivers for this model do it right now... we 'll see. The port to WR902AC made switching from openwrt to lede on OS level necessary, so we had to setup a complete new compile chain. Therefore, the port might still have some bugs. If you discover some bugs, please report and please be a bit patient if fixing takes a few days. Currently the WR902AC is sold as hardware revision 1.x. You can see from the TP-Link pages that they are preparing to release a version 3 model, which seems to use different hardware. So take your chance to get a version 1 WR902AC which are widely available on world-wide level right now.


released January 21, 2018

  • fixed a reset issue of TL-MR3040
  • improves handling of wind max gust speeds for weather network Meteotemplate.


released January 11, 2018

  • further improvements on WMR-300 driver


released January 11, 2018

  • fixes a newly invented serial console kernel driver issue for Davis USB loggers for WL-330N3G platforms.


released January 10, 2018

  • Wmr89-big.jpg
    fixes an freshly introduced bug in regard to handling negative wind chill temperatures for WMR-300 station
  • reduces pointless writing of same sensor values into internal storage every few seconds for WMR-300 weather station. Now data in Meteobridge is only updated when sensor data has changed or 50 seconds have passed. By that storage consumption is reduced without compromising on tracking fast sensor data changes.
  • adds support for Oregon Scientific low budget weather station WMR-89. Support is still experimental, but we have been asked many times to support this station, which we now do :-)


released January 8, 2018

  • fixes some bugs in the WMR-300 low level driver, which made reporting of sensors unstable in certain situations.


released January 3, 2018

  • Badchart.png
    Meteobridge PRO: updates chart engine to latest version (3.21.12). This fixes a specific chart bug (shown in the picture on the right) that can show up when using the Chrome browser in combination with line charts.
  • Meteobridge PRO: Does show size and free space of backup media when initiating a backup. Messages section on "System" tab will provide this information.


released January 2, 2018

  • adds "MMM" template variable to report month as English three letter abbreviation ("Jan", "Feb", etc).
  • adds multiplier to template variable converter. For example: Converter "F10" reports temperature in degrees Fahrenheit multiplied by 10. That way template variables can report current outdoor temp in 1/10 of degrees Fahrenheit ("th0temp-act=F10") or daily rain fall in 1/100 inch ("rain0total-sumday=in100").
  • These features allow to generate CWOP/wxnow.txt (http://wiki.sandaysoft.com/a/Wxnow.txt) data strings as follows:
Feb 01 2009 12:34
272/010g006t069r010p030P020h61b10150

Corresponding template definition looks like this:

[MMM] [DD] [YYYY] [hh]:[mm]\n
[wind0dir-act.000:...]/[wind0avgwind-act=mph.000:...]g[wind0wind-max10=mph.000:...]

New TP-Link MR3020 hardware (Version 3) not compatible with Meteobridge!
We got notice that TP-Link rolled out a new hardware version of the TL-MR3020. The new units cannot be flashed with Meteobridge firmware. You can identify these version 3 devices by the sticker on the packaging telling you that it is a version 3 model and by the new TP-Link logo and the "300Mbps" text on the front of the device. There is a posting in the forum that gives you even more details why these units cannot be used with Meteobridge right now.


released December 27, 2017

  • fixes a bug sometimes impacting restore of settings on "System" tab.


released December 18, 2017

  • increases handling of partly not available gust speed at weather station WMR-300.


released December 13, 2017

  • Shutdown.jpg
    Meteobridge PRO: Allows a clean and save shut down by pressing the reset button (behind the pinhole) until vertical status bar has scrolled down completely and "Shut Down" appears on the display. Now button can be released. When red LED is turned off, system is powered down and can be unplugged from power without risk of data being damaged on the USB storage. It will need a power cycle to start again.
  • Meteobridge PRO: A "Shut Down" button has been placed next to the "Reboot" button on "System" tab. Pressing it gives you a warning that it will need physical access to the device to get it started again. Confirming that, the shutdown will happen.


released December 11, 2017

  • Meteobridge PRO: fixes erroneous "license update period expiration" messages on "System tab".


released December 9, 2017

  • Emailattach.png
    Meteobridge PRO: adds delete option for newly introduced email attachments. Deletion of the attached file is only performed, when email was sent out successfully.


released December 8, 2017

  • Meteobridge PRO: adds a feature to send charts and export files as email attachments.

Version 3.4

released December 4, 2017

  • fixes a bug that prevents from uploading data to weather network idokep.
  • allows to read data from webcams in PNG and JPG format (previously only JPG was allowed)


released December 3, 2017

  • adds internal temp and humidity readings to idokep weather network
  • reduces maximum RF sensitivity for Meteostick readings to -95db. More sensitive settings have turned out to be useless as they pickup too much RF noise to give a reliable reading of data.


released November 27, 2017

  • improves error reporting on failed HTTP requests


released November 26, 2017

  • fixes a bug that stalls the data logger when some weather network details left empty (like WU ID).


released November 19, 2017

  • fixes a red mark error on "weather network" tab when using Home Weather Station. Previous fix has not been effective in all situations.
  • Bandwidth2.png
    renames Meteostick RF bandwidth options from "narrow / normal / wide" to "direct / via console". "direct" (which corresponds to formerly "narrow") has to be used when receiving data directly from the Davis sensors or from an external Davis repeater. When packets retransmitted from the Davis console should be read, option "via console" has to be used. This is identical to formerly used option "normal". Option "wide" has been dropped, as it has shown not to be useful in Davis RF context.
  • Webcamio.png
    adds support for "webcam.io" service, which users might use as replacement for to be terminated "Weather Underground Camera" service. Just setup a FTP cam upload service within Meteobridge and give this as path:
    ftp://user:password@ftp.webcam.io:21/mycam-[YYYY][MM][DD]-[hh][mm].jpg
    Prerequisite is that you have setup a free test account at webcam.io as explained here: www.webcam.io


released November 16, 2017

  • fixes a sensor mapping error for th70 when using Davis sensors in combination with Meteobridge PRO or Meteostick.
  • fixes a red mark error on "weather network" tab when using Home Weather Station setup with "mb.php" script located in subfolder "mbridge".
  • Meteobridge PRO: improves handling of "database reconstruct" option by pausing data logging of sensor data just being reconstructed.


released November 4, 2018

  • Htmlemail1.png
    fixes email send functions so that quote characters (") can be sent.
  • Htmlemail2.png
    provides new HTML option to send HTML formatted emails. Below you see a definition of a HTML email in the Meteobridge "Subject # Body" notation and on the right you see how the resulting HTML email looks like. Images can also be included by HTML <img> references. Direct inclusion of images into the email is not supported.
todays temp at [hh]:[mm]#<body><table border="1">
  <tr><td>current temp</td><td>[th0temp-act:--]°C</td></tr>
  <tr><td>min temp</td><td>[th0temp-dmin:--]°C</td></tr>
  <tr><td>max temp</td><td>[th0temp-dmax:--]°C</td></tr>
  </table></body>


released October 26, 2017

  • fixes a bug on handling single quotes in camera overlay strings


relased October 24, 2017

  • fixes a bug regarding ok/error mark for alarm events on "Live Data" tab.
  • better handles slow down issue of some observerip models and avoids wrong selection of measurement units.


released October 14, 2017

  • Eventlog.png
    limits event history to 30 lines, but allows to show full history (up to 4000 bytes in total) when clicking onto upload status indicator. Event history will show-up in a new window.


released October 12, 2017

  • adds event history to each of the upload services listed in upper section of "Live Data" tab. When mouse is moved over the upload status indicator a list of last upload events is shown.


released October 11, 2017

  • does up to 3 retries on sending SMS. This handles spare situations where contact to SMS service does fail on first attempt caused by routing or Internet time out problems.
  • Meteobridge PRO: enhances "@YYYY" addressing schema to be used with template variables. When "YYYY" is not defining a valid year but is in the range of "0000" to "0010" then "0000" is interpreted as the current year, "0001" as the previous year and so on. In that situation the 4 digit number expresses how many years to skip into the past. These skips need to be in 4-digit style, leading zeros are not allowed to be omitted.
  • Meteobridge PRO: more robust execution of database repair tasks.
  • fixes bug in testing HTTPS connections on "Weather Networks" tab for services "Meteotemplate" and "Home Weather Station".
  • fixes a bug with Oregon WMR-300 station in regard how to handle wind chill computation when primary outdoor temp/hum sensor does not deliver data.


released September 30, 2017

  • fixes a bug that stalls SFTP uploads on DIR-505 platform


released September 29, 2017

  • Sftp1.png
    Sftp2.png
    adds SFTP upload option. This supports password protected SFTP upload only (no key based upload). SFTP upload services can be selected like FTP upload, parameters are the same. Implementation is still regarded beta. FTPS (aka FTP via TLS) is not supported. An option to test a SFTP connections is added at the bottom of the "services" tab.
  • more nicely adapts HTTP timeout settings to given send intervals. This means tighter timeouts are applied for rapid sending and more relaxed timeout apply when data is sent just every 30 seconds or even less often. Maximum timeout is 13 seconds. A URL not answering in that interval can be regarded broken (even on slow cellular networks).


released September 22, 2017

  • Upload.png
    Meteobridge PRO: allows to upload files via admin web interface to SMB folders "charts, "templates", "scripts" and "export". Simply browse to "http://ip-of-your-meteobridge/upload.html" and select folder and file to upload.


released September 21, 2017

  • Wring.gif
    adds weather network "Wetterring". All you need is an ID key from Wetterring and you can easily upload data in user-defined intervals to the "Wetterring" network "http://www.wetterring.com". Main focus of Wetterring is Austria and Switzerland.


released September 10, 2017

  • Humstretch.png
    does no longer report temperature as dew point when humidity is at 0%. Behavior is altered, so that no dew point value is reported, when humidity is at 0%. This is because there is no dew point without humidity. When you urgently need some kind of dew point even when your humidity sensor reports zero, you can adapt humidity stretch as follows. A value of "0" will then be mapped to "1".


Mr3020-v19.jpg
Firmware Image Update September 9, 2017

We got notice that TP-Link changed the NOR flash storage in some of the newer hardware batches named Rev 1.9 (see picture on the right) of the MR3020. Unfortunately, this chip is not supported by the Linux kernel we use in our current Meteobridge firmware and the unit will not boot. But we were lucky enough to patch the kernel this evening, so that the new chip is now recognized and Meteobridge firmware in new version 1.5 is now doing well again. For those who flashed one of the impacted MR3020 with Meteobridge firmware 1.4 the sad message is, that the unit is bricked. I just posted an instruction in the forum how to resurrect the device without opening it, but it is more for the hardcore techie: http://forum.meteohub.de/viewtopic.php?f=56&t=12318&p=23502#p23502

I am sorry for the hassle, but we cannot foresee, what TP-Link will surprise us with.... all we can do is to solve issues pretty fast, which I think we did.


released August 17, 2017

  • adds template variables "daylengthmin", "civillengthmin", "nauticallengthmin" which report length of shortest day (December 21) of the current year at the given longitude/latitude.
  • adds template variables "daylengthmax", "civillengthmax", "nauticallengthmax" which report length of longest day (June 21) of the current year at the given longitude/latitude.
  • adds converters "secs", "mins", "hours" to be applied to daylength results. Converter returns a floting point number that defines the time period in seconds, munites or hours instead of the standard "HH:MM" format. This makes it more easy to to math between time durations. Example: Template string "{* [mbsystem-daylengthmax=mins.0] - [mbsystem-daylength=mins.0] *0}" returns number of minutes the current day is shorter than longest day of the year.
  • adds an option to specify number of leading zeros when using decimals specifier. "{*([mbsystem-daylengthmax=mins.0]-[mbsystem-daylength=mins.0])/60*00t}:{*([mbsystem-daylengthmax=mins.0]-[mbsystem-daylength=mins.0])%60*00t}" returns lost daytime compared to longest day of the year in "HH:MM" notation. "*00t}" sets output to 2 digits filled up with leading zeros ("00") if necessary and does not do rounding but cuts of decimals ("t").


Version 3.3

released August 13, 2017

  • fixes bug that skips first rain data reading when stations rain counter has been reset to zero. This especially happened when using Davis Envoy8x.
  • allows for up to 10 external temp/hum sensors when using Oregon WMR-200 station.


released August 2, 2017

  • corrects solar radiation values for WH-2310 / 4000 stations to better match display data.
  • handles return messages of weather networks in more secure way.


released July 27, 2017

  • adds upload of monthly and yearly rain totals to ambient weather network support.


released July 26, 2017

  • Meteobridge PRO: fixes a bug that breaks chart generation when a sensor used in the chart is disabled on "live data" tab.


released July 20, 2017

  • improves reset handling of USB port when connected to Fine Offset 2310 / 4000 weather stations.


released July 11, 2017

  • adds support for additional external temp sensor (channel 101) when using station Lufft WS600.
  • fixes bugs on Fine Offset 3210 / 4000 implementation.
  • fixes a bug where Meteoplug cloud service might show false sea level pressures in certain situations.
  • adds heat index to WeatherCloud uploads.


released July 8, 2017

  • fixes a bug in support of weather station Fine Offset 2310 / 4000 that blocked data logging once a USB CRC error has occurred.


released July 4, 2017

  • Meteobridge PRO: fixes a bug related to chart generation when using time frame "last quarter".


released Juli 3, 2017

  • Wh2308.png
    adds support for Fine Offset 2310 / 4000 weather stations, which are also rebranded as "Tycon TP2700".


released Juli 2, 2017

  • applies non-standard primary sensor settings to HomeWeatherStation uploads. Changing primary sensors on live data tab did not had an effect on which sensors were used for feeding HomeWeatherStation uploads. With the new release, this is taken into account as with the other weather networks.


released July 1, 2017

  • Wurainrate.png
    adds an option to send true rain rate data to WU instead of cumulated rain of last 60 minutes. Default Meteobridge upload of cumulated rain is in line with WU specification but some users requested to see rain data on WU as on their console. This can now be realized by setting the switch to "alternative rain rate".


released June 19, 2017

  • removes user-defined retries for weather network ambientweather.net to spare server bandwidth.


released June 18, 2017

  • improves algorithm to compute station pressure from SLP as reported by Vantage. Normally, Meteobridge directly requests station pressure from Vantage by means of LOOP2 protocol. But there might be situations where Vantage console is on old firmware level (below 1.9) not supporting LOOP2 or when Meteobridge acts as a slave to a PC weather program emulating a WLIP device and by that might not get LOOP2 packets. Please understand that back computation of station pressure from SLP is not perfect as average humidity and temperature of last 12h hours is not avail to Meteobridge. When you are operating in higher altitudes be prepared that some variation will occur. You can compensate by pressure adjustments on "station" tab.


released June 14, 2017

  • fixes time triggers "before each new year", "before each new month" and non-PRO Meteobridges (PROs did not had the reported problem).
  • Meteobridge PRO: fixes a bug uploading export data via FTP. Latest export file is now available as "export:lastexport.txt" or "export:lastexport.exp" and a bug when using full qualified inline FTP credentials has been fixed.


Version 3.2

released May 29, 2017

  • includes all changes until this point in time into release 3.2 which is the base release available for all licensed systems, regardless if 2 years of free update support has passed or not.
  • adds HomeWeatherStation support on "weather network" tab to make it most easy to use.


released May 26, 2017

  • adds template variable "epoch" which returns current date/time as unsigned integer in Unix style (seconds since January 1, 1970).
  • Meteobridge PRO: changes OLED screen saver to show two moving vertical lines when active. Screen saver pauses a few seconds and shows original content when lines do meet in the middle of the screen. Moving lines avoid having the false impression that display is completely off.


released May 19, 2017

  • fixes a bug that falsely reports that Meteotemplate URL is malformed.


released May 14, 2017

  • adapts error handling to changes in return messages of weather network previmeteo.
  • adds some checks on providing correct API URL when feeding Meteotemplate sites.


released May 7, 2017

  • Meteobridge PRO: fixes a bug (introduced with previous version) that impacted classical display loop templates.


released May 6, 2017

  • Meteobridge PRO: fixes another OLED driver bug that tends to show first screen of loop after loop has been finished.


final 3.2 version released May 6, 2017

  • introduces limited time frame for update support. Free updates are available for first 2 years after license purchase. Having passed that period an update license that covers another two years of free update service can be purchased for 19 Euros. Purchase can be made within the Meteobridge application via a PayPal button. Being out of update services users will stick to their current version, which will stay operational. Bug fixing and trouble shooting will focus on new versions, there are no plans on back-porting bug fixes or deploying new features to older versions. Meteobridge PROs are not subject of these changes, they still get all updates for free.


released April 30, 2017

  • Meteobridge PRO: fixes start/stop issue of OLED driver and improves CPU efficiency of OLED driver code.
  • Meteobridge PRO: improves "once" display scripts to erase static screen content (like smartbedded intro logo) when triggered. This helps to render screen black after each round of displaying weather data.


released April 28, 2017

  • Meteobridge PRO: improves display operation. While default display scripts show weather data on the display in a loop for a period of 5 minutes, there are now script variants available that run throw the loop only one time and switch off display after that. These variants end with "once" in the drop-down list, where you select the display scripts. When you trigger these scripts every 2 minutes, you get about 40 seconds of data being displayed, then display goes off and starts again displaying data when 2 minutes are passed. This helps reducing screen wear-out while still providing you with data on the display.
    Once-display-scritp.png


released April 26, 2017

  • Meteobridge PRO: fixes a bug related to display operations.


released April 22, 2017

  • Meteobridge PRO: switches OLED into sleep mode after 5 minutes of inactivity. After that content is displayed for 3 secs every minute. When new data is sent to the display, it wakes up immediately and 5 minute countdown to sleep starts again. This measure protects display from early wear out. Timeout to sleep is hard coded and cannot be changed by the user right now.


released April 12, 2017

  • fixes a bug that blocks "weather network" tab on certain conditions, like a freshly setup system.


released April 11, 2017

  • fixes a bug regarding "1 minute" uploads for Ambientweather Network.


released April 10, 2017

  • adds support for new weather data dashboard from AmbientWeather.


released April 8, 2017

  • fixes a bug introduces with previous update, that inhibits selection Vantage stations when using Meteostick.
  • adds French language support.


released April 2, 2017

  • adds support for Envoy8x additional Soil/Leaf stations to be used by Meteotemplate uploads.
  • adds support for Thies Clima Sensor US station (9600 baud, 8N0, ASCII mode, ID=01).
  • fixes a bug handling negative temperatures with Rainwise CC3000 console.


released March 29, 2017

  • switches to sealevel pressure computation inside Meteobridge, when WS600 station does report identical values for station and sealevel pressure.


released March 22, 2017

  • adds Spanish as language option
  • fixes a bug related to additional temp sensors in regard to meteotemplate weather service.


released March 13, 2017

  • fixes a bug that prevents from selecting "meteotemplate" weather network list.


released March 12, 2017

  • fixes a HTTPS related warning when including Meteobridge PRO charts, uploaded to your web server which operates on HTTPS.
  • allows to read templates and scripts from HTTPS URLs
  • drops complete set of sensor data from FineOffset WH-1080 station and clones, when any data in the record is detected being false.
  • adds support for "Jachym"s Meteotemplate, which can now be selected as a standard weather network.
  • fixes a bug that slows down WU updates.


released February 18, 2017

  • fixes a bug when selecting SSID from drop-down list that includes a colon ":".

  • Meteobridge PRO: fixes a bug in handling local timezone for charting purposes.


released February 5, 2017

  • fixes a bug in handling wind direction from Acurite Aculink devices.


released February 4, 2017

  • Meteobridge PRO: adds a function on "History" tab that starts a complete reconstruction of the database from the recorded hourly values. This helps in situations, when time zone has changed and as a result higher level aggregated data for days, months, etc will not have the correct time stamps anymore. The reconstruction will take some time and during that period storing new data will delayed until reconstruction has finished. Per minute data for the last hours will be lost by performing this operation. Progress of reconstruction will be reflected in messages section of "System" tab.
  • Meteobridge PRO: fixes a deficiency, that database process can run into a failure loop, when some database tables are missing (because sensors might have been deleted on "History" tab). When this happens now, one error message will be reported and database table will be setup again to allow next operation on that sensor to be successful.
  • Meteobridge PRO: adds an adjustable boot delay. This allows the Meteobridge PRO to wait 1 to 5 minutes after a restart before reaching out to the Internet. Optional boot delay can be adjusted on "System" tab.
  • summarizes repeating entries from the logger process in the messages section of "System" tab.
  • fixes a bug that did no correctly handle events "before" and "after" day break. Time stamps used for collecting associated data were not correctly used.


released January 29, 2017

  • fixes a bug that resets timezone to UTC when doing a reboot that forces to start in "LAN DHCP client" mode. This bug did show correct timezone settings on "system" tab but UTC was actually used.
  • avoids redundant messages on "system" tab. Identical follow-up messages are replaced by a repeat notice.


released January 22, 2017

  • fixes a frequent disconnect issue when using 3g USB dongles for Internet connectivity.


released January 21, 2017

  • fixes a bug that prevents from triggering events bound to a specific time of the day.


released January 17, 2017

  • Meteobridge PRO: adds a chart to show sunshine duration in case you have a modified Davis station that has a 3rd party sunshine sensor attached.
  • fixes a bug in handling of "no windchill" option on "station" tab (when used with Meteostick or Meteobridge PRO RED).


released December 25, 2016

  • Meteobridge PRO: better handles RAM database inconsistencies by purging RAM database automatically if needed.


Version 3.1

released December 22, 2016

  • fixes a bug regarding "no windchill" option on "weather station" tab. Now, when you select this option wind data gets reported even in case no temp sensor for windchill computation available. Formerly, this only worked for Meteostick operation. Now this feature can be used with all weather stations.


released December 19, 2016

  • improves handling of WMR-100 station USB hang-ups.


released December 17, 2016

  • fixes a bug when evaluating "wind0dir-valX" template variables on non-PRO Meteobridges


released December 3, 2016

  • add version 3.1 to the list of versions to manually stick at.


released November 19, 2016

  • expands set of characters that can be used in SMS messages.


released November 16, 2016

  • hotfix that prevents from filling up ram disk with temporary test messages. This makes Meteobridge stall/reboot after a while.


released November 13, 2016

  • Meteobridge PRO: fixes time frame selection for graphing on a weekly level
  • some internal SW redesigns


released October 30, 2016

  • Heatmap.png
    Meteobridge PRO: fixes a bug related to change of daylight saving. This bug could make database synchronization to run into an endless loop and blocking storage of incoming data.
  • Meteobridge PRO: adds new heatmap charts for comparing temperature of a sequence of days.
  • Meteobridge PRO: adds a feature on "System" tab to force a complete database rebuild during start.


released October 24, 2016

  • Chart-2.png
    Meteobridge PRO: fixes some bugs with allinone chart templates
  • Meteobridge PRO: adds a new tempminmax chart template to display min/max temperature values
  • Meteobridge PRO: adds a new allinoneminmax chart template that works like "allinone" but display min/max data which is suitable when looking for summary data on daily and monthly level. This charts show min, average and max values in the legend and also presents balloon data including date/time of min max data when moving the mouse to one of the data sets. As with all Meteobridge PRO charts, they are based on Javascript, which is embedded into a regular HTML file that can be uploaded to your server and can be presented there by iframing.
  • Meteobridge PRO: reflects selection of sensors to be used as primary sensors from "Live Data" tab when plotting charts.
  • Meteobridge PRO: changes execution of export data generation which should now handle parallel triggering events with successive FTP uploads of lastexport files fine.

released October 20, 2016

  • Meteobridge PRO: Redesign of lastchart handling to make sure chart generations executed at the same time and which triggered FTP upload events are handled the right way to avoid mixing up the order of execution. When changes have proven being bug free, same will be applied for handling data export events which currently can't be executed at the same time in parallel.


released October 19, 2016

  • Chart-gen-and-upload.png
    Meteobridge PRO: Making use of automated chart generation and upload should now be fully supported. As there occured a few questions how to use it, I give an example on the right. As you can see, event #6 generates every full hour a chart of todays data just before the new hour shows up. This triggers event #7 which uploads the generated html chart to a web server and gives it the name "daychart-(year)-(month)-(day).html". Current data for year, month, day is inserted by means of "gnu c strftime" function, which defines "%Y" as year, "%m" as month, and "%d" as day. After successful upload, the local file on the Meteobridge PRO is deleted, as indicated by the "Delete file" mark.

released October 17, 2016

  • Meteobridge PRO: minor bug fixes related to the introduced chart feature.


released October 16, 2016

  • Chart1.png
    Meteobridge PRO: initial support for generating charts. Feature is still beta, feedback from users is highly welcome. Charts can be defined on "Graphs" tab, where time period, resolution, language and chart type can be selected. Meteobridge shows chart inline and provides two URLs, where the chart can be accessed. "local URL" works in your LAN, while "remote URL" allows you to access it from the Internet, when you have remote access enabled. Charts can also be generated on "Services" tab in a periodical manner. Charts are stored as html pages in "charts" folder, which can be accessed as Meteobridge PC network folder. FTP Upload of charts is also supported, by which you can make these accessible on your web server. "chart:lastchart" mechanics can be used for an FTP upload triggered by making the chart (this works analogous to the "lastexport" item when uploading export files). There is only one chart defined right now (allinone) in iso and imperial flavor, but more to come. Chart definitions are located in "templates" folder and have extension ".chart". Meteobridge charts are based on the "amcharts.com" package which smartbedded has licensed in a redistributable way. Nevertheless, please be aware that you are not allowed to used the included chart libs for purposes outside Meteobridge. Meteobridge charts are interactive, you can select and deselect data, you can modify the time line, and much more. You find a chart generated by my Meteobridge PRO here. Feel free to inspect it.

  • Display.png
    Meteobridge PRO: adds a feature that allows to turn off meteobridge display a) always or b) during night or c) during a manually specified period of the day/night.
  • fixes a bug introduced with September 23 update, that prevents storing th0temp data for building average/minimum/maximum values for shortly passed periods (th0temp-avg5, th0temp-min5, etc).


released September 23, 2016

  • adds support for sun shine duration sensors for Davis Vantage as sold by "weerhuisje.nl" and "weatherstations.co.uk". You need a Meteostick or a Meteobridge PRO to make use of this feature. It adds a new station type item "Sunshine Station" to select and provides a new sensor variable "sun0total" which sums up hours of sunshine on daily, monthly, yearly level.
  • adds support for Ambient Weather Observer IP WS-900 weather station


released September 12, 2016

  • maps soil temperature sensor of Acurite Aculink bridge to sensor IDs "t?temp" where "?" is a number starting at 10.
  • pushes date of pure temp sensors with IDs "t10temp" until "t13temp" as soil temperature to weatherunderground. This allows non Davis stations to also report soil temperatures as Acurite Aculink bridge, for example.

  • adds time control for periodic data exports to be triggered before or after a full hour, day, month, year has been started. Example: This allows to export all data of the current day just before day has passed (option: "before day break"). To be precise, this service is triggered when the day has just passed but data taken into account is limited to the day that has just passed. This makes definition of services that intend to export data of completed days/months/years more easy and straight forward.
  • adds option to FTP upload service, that allows to automatically delete the file from export folder when file has been uploaded successfully.


released August 17, 2016

  • Meteobridge PRO: fixes error messages popping up on early 3.0 version when generating WDL exports.


released July 12, 2016

  • Meteobridge PRO: massive rework of how data is stored. In essence there now is a pseudo persistent database keeping data in per minute resolution for the last 36 hours and a database in internal USB store that holds data on per hour/day/month/year level forever. Flash wear is reduced by about factor 60 and capacity of 8GB also looks to be overstated as USB database will grow very slowly. As so many code fractions needed to be adapted, there might still be some bugs here and there. Please report bugs to "info(at)meteobridge.com". We expect things going smooth after s short time.


released July 6, 2016

  • adds code to terminate stalled logger processes that might keep tcp ports busy.


released July 5, 2016

  • fixes SMS sending bug introduced with June 28 release


released July 3, 2016

  • makes use of a vector adding method to compute average wind direction. Result is no longer restricted to a fixed number of direction buckets (have been 16 in the past)
  • Meteobridge PRO: in order to eliminate the USB flash defects which are likely to occur after a certain time of use, we decided to dramatically reduce update interval of the internal database. Now data is only written every 15 minutes to the internal database. When this works flawless, update interval is planned to be further extended to every hour. As a result database will no longer provide per minute data. Nevertheless, the current 24h data will be available in RAM, so min/max/avg data of last minutes hours can still be computed correctly. RAM data also survives controlled reboots. Impact of stripping away the per minute database representation in regard to template variables is described in the Template section of the wiki.


Version 2.9

released June 28, 2016

released April 3, 2016

  • minor bigfixes


released April 2, 2016

  • adds Dutch WOW-NL network, which runs a partnership with UK WOW office.
  • Meteobridge PRO: write frequency of "non-weather" data like signal level, battery level, all the system information is reduced to every 5 minutes instead of every minute. That reduces write load and write volume in regard to the database significantly and makes database operations more crisp and reduces "database locked" situations.


released March 28, 2016

  • adds "=apm" converter to template variables about sun/moon rise and set times.
  • Windchill.png
    adds option on "Station" tab not to compute wind chill. This is useful when you don't have a temp sensor and wind speed recording will be blocked while waiting for an outdoor temp sensor to show up in order to compute wind chill correctly.


released March, 26, 2016

  • allows to use "\#" in email subjects to insert a "#" into the subject field. Quoting the "#" character is needed as an unquoted "#" will indicate that subject ends and following characters are part of the email body.
