Altsteon 0.07 released
« on: May 05, 2013, 01:06:09 pm »
It has been a LOOOONG time since the last release, but while I was working on getting the source uploaded I decided to finish a couple things that I needed done for my own system.   So, Altsteon 0.07 has been released!   You can find links to the download on

Eagle eyed readers will notice that there was no 0.06.   There actually was, but it was never released.  So, here are all the updates from 0.06 and 0.07 :

 - LOTS of fixes for the EzFlora. 
     - Setting and running programs should now work. 
     - When a program is running the poll time will be forced down to 1 minute.  This should make sure that the UI stays fairly up-to-date with what is going on with the sprinklers. 
     - Added the "Inhibit valves" command to the options.  Useful for shutting things down in the winter.
 - Disabled ALDB dumping at start up.  This should shrink the amount of time before all of the tiles are showing their correct values.
 - Change queuing behavior for lights.  If a command comes in to turn a light on, and Altsteon believes the light is already on, the command will be pushed to the lower priority queue.   This should speed up the perceived behavior when a large number of commands are dumped in the queue such as a "Good Night" button that turns all of the lights off.
 - Various other tweaks and changes to the daemon that won't show up in the UI.  -- If you want to know what the other changes and tweaks are you can look at the change log at the bottom of the altsteon_instructions.txt file.
