Changelog meteonorm software
- Corrections of the radiation output when using a horizon with temporary shadowing.
- Corrections of the radiation output of locations above the polar circle.
- The preview should now correctly indicate which data (meteonorm or imported) was used in the calculation.
- Location data changes for Guatemala, Potsdam, Sede Boqer, Gillot.
- Improvements for the spanish and italian translations.
- Changes to the graphical interface: More information visible.
- Fixes beam output for TMY3.
- Adds spanish translation.
- Improves handling of coordinates in the location information dialog for international users.
- Adds wind load information to preview.
- Custom locations are now sorted alphabetically.
- Monthly dew point temperature values are now handled correctly. Import of relative humidity enabled.
- Fixes a bug in the user-defined locations dialog (entering latitude/longitude).
- For locations with high horizons, corrected global radiation data is now used per default. In previous versions, original global radiation data is used per default (register modifications; only for approx. 20 Swiss weather stations).
- Test reference stations of DWD: change of time reference and limitation of high beam values. In previous versions partially too high beam values have been calculated (in morning hours) due to time reference errors.
- Horizontal beam (H_Bh or G_Bn) is now correctly named in user defined output format.
- Adding a constant horizon on a topological horizon resulted in an invalid horizon.
- Improvements to the monthly values import table.
- Corrects wrong parameter output for PVSyst calculations.
- User defined locations are now searchable.
- Minor improvements for the user interface.
- Adds HORIcatcher
- Minor updates to the report
- Minor updates of the station list
- Adds italian localisation
- Adds the possibility to use authenticated proxies
- Improves the handling of hourly import files
- Fixes a problem when not using the topographical horizon
- Fixes a poblem when importing data for 2011 and 2012
- Fixes the scroll bar functionality on small screens
- Improved Internet connectivity and proxy handling.
- Adds french localisation.
- Changes license management: One serial number is now valid for all users on one system.
- Adds an easy way to define constant horizons.
- Underdefined horizons (Less than one point per 90°) are now calculated correctly.
- Corrects radiation periods for weather stations in the output preview.
- Imports custom locations from XML, CSV and MDB. Imports the old stnuser2005.mdb now. Can fill in missing location data (I.e. altitude, timzone)
- Improves Internet connection handling for registration and maps.
- New, simpler save data dialog.
- The file extensions for custom formats are now configurable.
- Minor bugfixes and correction to some location coordinates.
- Fixes severe localisation problems in regions where commata are used instead of decimal points (Germany, France, Norway et al.) This also fixes crashes during startup for french users.
- Implements automatic proxy server detection and prevents crashes during the registration process.
- Fixes report generation for the TMY2 format.
- Horizon files saved by meteonorm 7 are now compatible with PV*SOL.
- Sun paths are now correctly drawn on the southern hemisphere.
- Minor bug fixes and corrections of translation errors.
- Intial release.
