Engen 1.0.38 -- Available Here
« on: December 06, 2016, 04:30:23 pm »

This is the latest version of Engen for Windows.  Please post bugs here.  Please start a new thread for anything requiring discussion. Non-bug posts will be deleted.



1.0.38 (12/6/2016)

1. NEW: Added a search box for Panel that can filter the list of scenes and devices.
2. Fixed: An issue was preventing Engen from running on 32-bit systems.
3. Changed: A large rewrite to the Engen code to make it more expandable.
4. Changed: The format of the database has changed. Engen will automatically update the database when it first runs. After the update, any old version of Engen is incompatible with the updated database

1.0.37 was an internal release for testing.

1.0.36 (10/24/2016)

1. Changed: Hide Devices and return to top links to just use symbols.
2. Fixed: A number of bugs associated with websockets.
3. Fixed: A bug where unnecessary threads were left running until shutdown.
4. Fixed: Some formatting bugs in logging messages.
5. Changed: The Engen home page will update every minute to keep device states updated.

1.0.35 (10/11/2016)

1. Changed: The web interface will accept POST wherever it accepted PATCH in the past.
2. Changed: Updated the documentation to say POST everywhere PATCH was previously specified.
3. Changed: The device list on home.html is now expanded initially.
4. Changed: Added an additional collapse button at the bottom of the expanded device list.
5. Changed: Added a button to return to the top of home.html at the bottom of the expanded device list.
6. Changed: The remove scene page would show Home as the active page instead of Setup.
7. Fixed: The link back to Panel would only work on the home page.

1.0.34 (10/4/2016)

1. NEW: Added a link to go back to Panel from Engen.
2. Changed: Added a changing icon in front of Devices to indicate a collapsible list.
3. Fixed: Scene devices sometimes would not turn off when toggled on and off quickly.
4. NEW: Added a feature allowing the log file to be monitored in real time from the command line interface, using the new watch() command.

1.0.33 (9/27/2016)

1. Fixed: Extended the range of testing ports because Engen was failing to find the UZB in some cases.
2. Changed: The collapsible device list was added back to home.html.

1.0.32 was an internal release for testing

1.0.31 (9/22/2016)

1. Changed: When there is more than one serial USB port on the machine, Engen now chats with the devices present, and determines whick of them are UZBs.  If there is more than one UZB, the program terminates with an error message, asking the user to choose the one she wants.

1.0.30 (9/21/2016)

1. Changed: Update to home.html to hide the bottom row of hardcoded buttons when the device list is collapsed.
2. NEW: Implemented the alarm, sensor binary and sensor multilevel command classes.
3. Fixed: On Linux & Mac, implemented a mechanism so only one copy of engen can run at a time.

1.0.28 and 1.0.29 were internal releases for testing

1.0.27 (9/15/2016)

1. Changed: Free trial period of 30 days.
2. NEW: On and off switch for scenes in the web interface.
3. Changed: Added another set of the hardcoded buttons to the bottom of home.html and put the list of devices into a collapsible list called 'Devices'.
4. Fixed: An exception that could occur in zupdate.refresh()
5. NEW: Added the enerwave config file.
6. Changed: Updated the REST interface and the associated web documentation.
7. Fixed: A bug where it was impossible to remove button controllers, even with "remove failed node".
8. Changed: Implemented the Wake Up command class.  Updated unit test routines accordingly.
9. Changed: Cleaned up shutdown, but one problem remains.  A collection of threads created by the web interface apparently do not shut down. It delays shutdown a few seconds but causes no serious problems.
10. Changed: Added a thread in zdriver to improve responsiveness with incoming messages.  Formerly user-provided (and possibly naive) code could delay UZB acknowledge messages, causing communication havoc.
11. Changed: Makefile modified to create all *.pyc files needed for the id build.  Attempted to put all files in a server.egg archive, but the web code is not finding them there, and the result is seriously messed up web pages.  This is for further study.
12. NEW: Added full support for AEON Key Fob.
13. NEW: Added support for custom device configuration files. These must be declared once, and the filename is thereafter remembered in the database file.
14. NEW: Added a custom device file for the Enerwave 7-button controller.
15. Changed: We now debounce rapid button pushes, really rate limiting them to one/second.  This was needed for the Enerwave 7-button controller, which always sends two messages for each press.
16. NEW: Added the Sensor Binary command class message routines. Partially added the Sensor Multilevel command class.
17. Fixed: A problem where Scenes with deleted devices would get an exception while setting a Scene.
18. Changed: Arranged for device values to be quickly refreshed after we adjust them with a set message.
