Into each life a little rain must fall…

..but at this particular time, it’s not. I’m on vacation with the kids at the family summer home near Norrk√∂ping, Sweden. I expect to be back to LCDHost hacking in a week.

Summerhome

LCDHost Alpha 34

Another quick release. A33 fixed the global float-to-qreal replacing that messed up some of the LH_Monitoring interface structures. A34 fixes data linking (and thus LH_Weather). Hopefully.

Always back-up your layouts before updating.

LCDHost Alpha 32

Whats new in LCDHost 0.0.32:

  • Fix LH_Graph crashing on startup
  • Changed LH_Weather to use the new URL syntax
  • Replace float with qreal globally
  • Minor refactoring of LH_Graph and LH_Monitoring
  • Warn when invalid setup item names are found
  • Fix invalid setup item names in LH_TS3 and LH_Weather
  • Fixed a bunch of LH_FLAG_NOSAVE warnings

Always back-up your layouts before updating.

LCDHost Alpha 31

A quick release to address some of the problems reported on the forums for alpha 30. As always, backup your layouts.

Whats new in LCDHost 0.0.31:

  • Fix save and restore of ‘check for update’ and ‘dont show welcome’ settings
  • Fix shortcut working directory on Windows
  • Include Qt5MultimediaWidgets DLL on Windows

LCDHost Alpha 30

Whats new in LCDHost 0.0.30:

  • Moved plugins into the bin/ directory on Windows and Linux to fix PATH issues
  • Fix for data linking auto publishing on layout loading
  • Fixed compile warnings when using clang compiler

Remember to back-up your layouts before updating.
Note that monitoring needs to be customized per-machine, but the installed default layouts are read-only.
You’ll need to make a copy of the layouts/g19-eos directory and modify that.
