we just uploaded the first (and hopefully only) release-candidate of Artisan v0.6 for Windows, OS X and Linux.
For this release we added the requested spike filtering (actually two input filters, one recognizing small spikes and a min-max filter for heavy dropouts as well as a filter that can smooth out spikes after recording). However, most work focused on extending the localization support to additional languages as well as a proper Windows installer and Linux binary packages for CentOS/Redhat and Ubuntu/Debian.
The changes over beta 6 are as follows:
- improved "Drop Spikes" method
- configurable min/max and spike input filters
- adds short delay before first serial write
- close and reopen serial port on error
- extended HUD
- phases watermarks can be hidden now
- adds flags to specify roast defects
- derived data saved to profiles for later post processing
- improved localization support
- full German tranlations
- adds additional localization support for several languages
- Windows installer
- Linux build
- fixed Modbus slave id handling
- fixed serial logging for Fuji PID
- further bug fixes
Depending on the feedback to this Release Candidate we plan to release the final v0.6 within the next weeks. As always, please report issues and feature suggestions!
Thanks for testing,
The Artisan team
I recently took delivery of a coffee roaster with a WATLOW modbus interface. It has a RS485-->USB adaptor on it to hook up to my Mac running OS X 10.8. I've installed the appropriate drivers from the FTDI website and when I go in to System Information the connection shows up. I have a latest beta version from the website.
The problem I'm having is that when I turn the scope on I get the following message:
Modbus Error: readFloat() Attempting to use a port that is not open @line 16519
I've attached screen shots of the settings as well.
Any thoughts on this? Thanks in advance!
