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 http://www.geektaco.info/altsteon

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.

Enjoy!
