WeatherLog 4.10

Changes (Features)

  • Dataset name restrictions are now looser:
    • The only restrictions now are no forward slashes (“/”), no back slashes (“\”), and no periods at the start of the name.
    • The period restriction only exists as that is convention for hidden files on Unix-based systems and could cause issues. Periods not at the first position are still allowed.
    • Previously only a-z, A-Z, 0-9, and certain symbols were allowed. While this sounds like everything, it disregards all accented characters, certain punctuation not used in English like “¿”, and all non-Latin characters. In other words, it’s very far from everything.
  • Main data list now grabs focus. This means that it is now easier to use keyboard controls to navigate the data.
  • Moved Options menu item from its own menu to the Weather menu.
  • Added message dialog to Data Subset when no conditions are entered.
  • Added “Reset Conditions” option. If set to true, conditions will be cleared after the data subset is shown.
  • Renamed Info menu to Data, as there is much more than just the Info features there now.
  • Changed some menu accelerators to more logical shortcuts.
  • Clarified some tooltips in Options.

Changes (Code)

  • Merged some functions in launch.py and io.py.
  • Added extra error handling for launch.py and io.py.
  • Simplified launch.py:get_restore_data().
  • Renamed image files to remove the “profile” name.
  • Dataset name validation now uses application constants.
  • Added header comments to init files.
  • Moved CalendarRangeDialog to its own file.
  • Renamed GenericInfoDialog, GenericChartDialog, GenericGraphDialog; removed the “Generic” prefix as now one dialog is used for all.
  • Added explicit error checks in blocks where all errors were previously caught.
  • clear_all() now uses options() to reset options.
  • Added function update_columns() for changing the list column titles.
  • Clarified some comments.
  • Removed unnecessary comments.

Changes (Bugfixes)

  • Fixed Copy Data using the wrong names for dataset names.
  • Fixed pickle not saving or loading data properly on Python 3. This also required a change to binary data files, but this should not break anything.
