Title: SteelSeries Announcements
Post by: mcrossley on February 22, 2012, 09:23:43 AM
Latest version: 2.6.1

Want to make a donation to the Weather Gauges? Please click here. (https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=R3Y5CFQPA9J5W)

I thought I would start a new thread for announcing the release of the latest version of the SteelSeries sample page/scripts. I'd like to keep this thread to just announcements and keep all support discussion on other threads, otherwise it quickly becomes unmanageable.

Please post support queries/discussions in this sub-forum

Download it from here (http://wiki.sandaysoft.com/a/SteelSeries_Gauges)

As usual, please take the time to read the readme.txt file, it does contain some useful information.

If you are interested in keeping up with SteelSeries releases I suggest you add a 'notify' to this thread.


The latest changes are...

2.6.1

2.6.0

2.5.19

2.5.18

2.5.17

For those who are notified of this thread, version 1.6.0 is now available.

Version 1.6.0 introduced a lot of code changes and additions, so unfortunately there have been a few bugs I missed.

Version 1.6.2 is now available which addresses all the ones I know about.

v1.6.3 posted, this fixes the last known (ha ha!) bug introduced by the 1.6 changes - the maximum average temperature reading.

I also taken the opportunity to do a long overdue tidy up the graph handling in the popups.

There is a new variable (g_showPopupDataGraphs) which allows you switch off the graphs completely and just leave text based popups.

All the graph images are now defined in gauges.js by the g_tipImgs array - you no longer need to edit the ddimagetooltips.js as well. This array has also been expanded; by default it is configured with the 'standard' Cumulus trend images, but you can now add your own custom graphs for every gauge reading such separate graphs for dewpoint, apparent, windchill, indoor humidity etc. You can also add graphs for UV and Solar Radiation which Cumulus does not generate at all. WD users should find this feature useful.

Not hard enough Brian!

Version 1.6.4 now available, it fixes the shaded min/max not being displayed on the temperature gauges. Only gauges.js changed this time.

Thanks for all the hard work.

I noticed some spelling errors in the Dutch translation:

moderndere - modernere
should be a space between 'oude' and meters
weeerstation - weerstation
Data laten - Data laden
Buitentemperatur - Buitentemperatuur
Binnentemperatur - Binnentemperatuur
Gevoelstemperatur - Gevoelstemperatuur
Abbreviation for the month of March (Maart), I'd prefer Mrt instead of Mar

For the more adventurous go-it-a-loners, I have just released a new version of the full SteelSeries library (v0.11.0). Read about it here:

Version 1.6.5 now available, quite a few changes again in this release, maybe it should have been a 0.1 update! :lol:
Title: Re: SteelSeries Announcements
Post by: mcrossley on March 19, 2012, 12:14:58 PM
Version 1.6.6 now available.

One fix that you may want to incorporate soon, v1.6.5 downloads the humidity graph every realtime update cycle rather than every 15 minutes (default). The change if you just want to edit your existing file is line 1336, changes from:
Code: [Select]
        if (g_showPopupDataGraphs && g_tipImgs[4][0] !== null) {
to
Code: [Select]
        if (g_refreshGraphs && g_showPopupDataGraphs && g_tipImgs[4][0] !== null) {

Also added Danish and Finnish translations.

The rain rate gauge hasn't been working correctly with WD, I have attached an updated customclientrawlocal.txt file to the first post, please replace teh version in 1.6.6 with this file until the next release when I'll roll it in.

I have updated the SteelSeries library to version 0.11.3...

These changes speed up the library quite a bit so I thought it would be worth providing an updated Weather Gauge specific version (as I normally supply the  weather gauges releases). This 'should' be a drop in replacement for the existing file on your server.

The main changes are:

> Radial
  * Fixed Odometer being reinitialised every time the background was redrawn
  * Fixed background changes drawing LCD background when Odometer visisble
  * Disabled pointer shadow blurring, it was causing performance issues in some browsers
  * added check for 'knob' parameter in drawRadialForegroundImage()
> Odometer
  * Added setValueAnimated() method
> RadialBargraph
  * Fixed issue with LED halo still displaying when LED was off
> General
  * Added full caching to: trendIndicator, MaxMinIndicators, LCDbackground, LEDimage,
    LinearForeground, LinearBackground, LinearFrame,
    RadialForeground, RadialBackground, RadialFrame, and RadialPointers
  * Stopped some variable leakage to the global scope
  * Some code styling changes and fixes for minor syntax niggles

EDIT: Script updated, see below...

Opps, the last version of the cutdown SteelSeries script was a little too cut down - I left out the Odometer component. This version adds it back in again, it only really affects you if you use the odometer display on a gauge.

Version 2.0.0 is now out of beta and available. Enjoy  :santa:
Title: Re: SteelSeries Announcements
Post by: mcrossley on December 21, 2012, 08:56:40 PM
Version 2.0.1 is now available, it fixes the syntax error in gauges.js that affected WD users, no other changes.
Title: Re: SteelSeries Announcements
Post by: mcrossley on December 30, 2012, 07:24:01 PM
Version 2.0.2 is available

Fixes issues with wind speed when your native units are km/h, also adds a decimal to the kPa barometer scale numbers.

Post by: mcrossley on January 15, 2013, 01:22:52 PM
Version 2.0.3 is now available, there are quite a few changes in this release, please see the first post in this thread.
Title: Re: SteelSeries Announcements
Post by: mcrossley on January 21, 2013, 04:37:28 PM
Version 2.0.4 is now available, please see the first post in this thread.
Title: Re: SteelSeries Announcements
Post by: mcrossley on January 26, 2013, 06:11:01 PM
Version 2.1.0 is now available.

There are quite a few changes in this release, please see the version control list.

Major headlines...

I intend to leave this package alone for a while now - except for bug fixes, translation updates etc.
Title: Re: SteelSeries Announcements
Post by: mcrossley on February 03, 2013, 12:32:22 PM
Version 2.1.1 is now available.

Mainly some minor bug fixes and translation updates in this one.

The one change to watch out for is the renaming of the combined Steelseries & Tween script file. My original name choice was causing much confusion so I have bitten the bullet and changed the file name - now I await all the "version 2.1.1 doesn't work messages"  :roll:
Title: Re: SteelSeries Announcements
Post by: mcrossley on February 15, 2013, 02:45:19 PM
Version 2.2.0 is now available.

The headline changes are:

The image below shows the old and new style wind rose, I use 8 points with my Fine Offset but the code should work with 16 or any number!
Title: Re: SteelSeries Announcements
Post by: mcrossley on February 18, 2013, 07:17:11 PM
Version 2.2.1 is now available.

This is a fix for the automatic rescaling of the gauges on mobile devices which broke in 2.2.0, and a typo fix for "Longitude" in gauges-ssT.htm (intended for use by Cumulus users)
Title: Re: SteelSeries Announcements
Post by: mcrossley on February 22, 2013, 11:30:39 AM
Version 2.2.2 is available. The main fix is for WeatherCat users, so Weather Display users can probably ignore this release. There is a slight tweak to the gauges-ss.css to pretty the units table slightly, and the Nederlands translation has been updated that's it.

I have also updated the FAQ (http://wiki.sandaysoft.com/a/SteelSeries_FAQ) with information on tweaking the wind rose appearance.
Title: Re: SteelSeries Announcements
Post by: mcrossley on March 12, 2013, 03:56:52 PM
Version 2.2.3 is available. It is primarily a bug fix for WeatherCat users using Knots for the wind speed units, so not much of interest for WD users.

It does update the SteelSeries library to v0.14.0 though, which introduces the user LED, so it you want to 'play' with that you may want to take a look.
Title: Re: SteelSeries Announcements
Post by: mcrossley on March 22, 2013, 10:15:29 PM
Version 2.3.0 is available, the key change is the addition of support for Meteobridge, but the only change relevant for WD users is the updated windrose.js script which removes the blurring that sometimes occurs on the wind rose plot in previous releases.
Title: Re: SteelSeries Announcements
Post by: mcrossley on May 18, 2013, 10:59:39 PM
Version 2.3.1 is available. A number of fixes in this release so I suggest everyone takes a look at it. At a minimum please update your copy of the steelseries library script files, the previous versions cause a script crash in Firefox v21+ if you use the following gauge frame types:
Title: Re: SteelSeries Announcements
Post by: mcrossley on May 19, 2013, 08:18:05 PM
Version 2.3.2 is posted, not really relevant for WD users as it is a bug fix from 2.3.1 for WeatherCat users. It does however contain an additional Portuguese translation courtesy of Cumulus user 'Werk_AG'
Title: Re: SteelSeries Announcements
Post by: mcrossley on June 04, 2013, 02:25:28 PM
Version 2.4.0 is available. A bug fix for VWS users, and a new look UV gauge for everyone.
The updated files are gauges.js and customeclientrawlocal.txt.
Title: Re: SteelSeries Announcements
Post by: mcrossley on June 09, 2013, 12:35:46 PM
Version 2.4.1 is available, fixes a bug in the rain rate gauge autoscaling when using Inches and the value is between 0.5" and 1.0"
Title: Re: SteelSeries Announcements
Post by: mcrossley on June 10, 2013, 09:27:45 AM
Version 2.4.2 is available, fixes a bug in the rain gauge autoscaling when using Inches and the value is between 0.5" and 1.0" - I stupidly missed this change out from 2.4.1
Title: Re: SteelSeries Announcements
Post by: mcrossley on July 23, 2013, 09:36:55 PM
Version 2.4.3 is available, it fixes a missing units conversion for the maximum hourly rainfall today, a minor tweak to the UV level thresholds, and a change to the UV warning wording (English only).

Opps! I not been very good at keeping this thread updated!  :oops:

Version 2.6.0 is now available. See the first post in this thread for the recent changes.
