Kootnet Sensors Beta.34.145

Kootnet Sensors version Beta.34.145 is out! I have updated all the channels and links to reflect the new version. I have also created Raspberry Pi images so you can flash it directly to an SD card and boot up with it pre-installed (like you would flash a normal Raspbian OS image). I’m just in the process of uploading the images to my web server, after that I’ll create links on my main pages to them. This should resolve any installation issues that might arise due to unresponsive servers or stale apt-get cache.

In other Kootnet Sensors news, I have created deb installers for older versions of Kootnet Sensors and posted them in the “Releases” section on GitHub. This was done mostly for nostalgia since you wouldn’t want to start with an older version … especially the much older ones. Still, it’s neat to see how the program has progressed over the months/years. The older versions I have created installers for include Alpha.24.x up to Alpha.28.x. I also added a missing one for Beta.31.x.

That’s it for now. I’ll post again when I get the Raspberry Pi images online.

Still working on Beta.34.x

So a bit more delay, I had family over and didn’t get as much work as I wanted to be done on the project. That being said, it’s coming along nicely. I’m just tweaking a little bit more and going through different sections double checking code.

Thanks to checking code all over, I re-worked the web portal notification system and added notifications for things like updates being run. I also enhanced the TCT (Terminal Configuration Tool) by adding the running version to the top of the menu, changing the operations a bit to have nicer output (easier to read and or more informational output during operations) and adding small changes like auto restarting the service after changes are done that require it (except for a few where you might want to check things before re-initializing).

So long story short, I want this release to be checked through a bit more before release. So it will be a bit longer. I’m still hoping to have it out by the end of this week, but I seem to keep finding sections I want to refine … so … we’ll see ^_^
