Linknx released


After a couple of last minute feature adds, I decided to release linknx . Since some new features needed structural changes, bugs could have been introduced. If you rely on linknx for your everyday's life, I would advise you to wait a couple of weeks to see if no critical bug is detected. If you have a test system, I encourage you to try it and report bugs. The plan for near future is to stop adding new features wait for potential bug fixes then release version and change project status from 'Beta' to 'Stable'.... read more

Linknx released

After weeks of work, I can finally release the version of linknx.
The main new features are:
* Improved logging capabilities:
If compiled with the corresponding option, linknx can use the log4cpp library to allow much more flexible logging.
In case log4cpp was not enabled a tcompile time, the internal logger is also improved and allows to filter out messages below a given level (INFO, WARN, ERROR). A timestamp is also added to each log line (but can be disabled).... read more

Linknx released

I finally found the time to make this new release.
New features:
* New KNX data-types (8, 16 and 32 bit signed/unsigned int and IEEE754 32 bit float)
Now the EIS datatypes have been replaced by corresponding datapoint types as described in
* Sunrise/Sunset/Noon timespec to trigger timers depending on sunrise/sunset time.
* New action "copy-value" that copy the value of an object to another one when it's executed.
* Improve delay configuration (allow d, h or m at end for days, hours or minutes)
* Improve version information. Now linknx -V also says with which optional features it is compiled (e-mail, SMS, ...
* Add XML command to save current config to a file. Now the -w parameter doesn't save the file when linknx exit, but just specify the default location where to save if command <admin><save/></admin> is received via the XML interface. You can also specify a file name directly in <admin><save file="xyz.xml"/></admin>... read more
