WXSIM 2017 Build 1.0 Released!
« on: February 28, 2017, 04:25:20 AM »
I've finally released a new version! :)  Go to

www.wxsim.com/wxsimupg.exe

to get the upgrade.  (If you've never downloaded WXSIM before, use www.wxsim.com/wxsimdem.exe instead).

Let me know how it goes, and thanks, as always, for your support in all this! :)

Tom
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What's new:

Updated the illustrated Quick Start Guide and included it in the download package, as wxsimquickstart.pdf.

Updated parts of the web page (see www.wxsim.com) - still intend to do more of that.

Added the ability to customize shadowing by mountains, and effects of sloped terrain
in general (on solar radiation)

Fixed a bug which on rare occasions caused the date to revert to the start date
during the forecast (I think only one user ever reported this, but I was able to
reproduce and fix the problem)

Added an option (under Start/Auto run and Other Settings) to omit humidity (dew
point) bias and WXSIM-Lite corrections, which keeping all the temeprature stuff.
This was mainly motivated by one user whose station's hygrometer totally failed, but
I've seen other questionable humidity data in users' files before, so this may have
some wider application.

Created WRETMATE, a companion program (openable either alone or via buttons in
wret.exe, autolearn.exe, or wxsimlite.exe) which allows you to easily manage the
large number of old forecast (.wxf) files which can acculate over time and potentially
make WXSIM-Lite or WRET/Autolearn rather slow in completing their analyses for bias
corrections (“learning”).  This new program allows you to (reversibly quarantine
archived forecasts that are too old or have non-standard names.  It also lets you
randomly cull the list of forecasts down by a percentage of your choice (i.e. if you
were making forecasts every hour, you could trim the analysis set down to, say, an
average of 5 per day, for quicker processing).

Hi Tom,
Upgrade by means of wxsimupg.exe worked for me. Currently all is working well.

Thanks for your hard work.

In the new version displays "Error 70 in wxmain". The script does not close.
Thanks in advance for your help.

I might have found the problem to be a scheduling issue. (my fault) I will let you know if it still fails.
