v3.9 and Realtime Updates Support

Posted

It’s been quite some time since an updated version of Acuparse has been released. There were many changes in progress including the much requested Realtime update support. Those users with Acurite Access devices know how painful waiting five minutes between updates can be. With the new Realtime support, you can now get updates as often as every 30 seconds or so, depending on the device. This is a beta feature and has not yet been extensively tested. It has however been working in production for around a month or so now, and should hopefully work as expected for most of you.

Please drop a note in Slack or on the email list if you have trouble with the new relay support or configuration. The relay only runs in Docker, so if you are running Acuparse in a VM or on a Raspberry Pi, you will need add support for Docker if you wish to run the Relay locally.

Also in today’s release, Tower Data is now reported during MQTT updates. Something a few users have been asking for.

One last notable change, the Acuparse Docker images have removed support for 386. Let us know if you are still running on 386 and we can look into adding it back. It’s being removed as it’s been nothing but trouble trying to keep it built.

Thanks for using Acuparse and for your continued support! A special thanks to all those who have donated to the project. Your support is greatly appreciated and means a ton. Without your ongoing support, there would be no need to continue this project.

As always, come chat in Slack or drop a note on the email list if you have any questions or comments.
