AHP Software Revision History - FOR REFERENCE PURPOSES ONLY
« on: September 13, 2006, 09:40:11 PM »

NOTE: I'm attempting to "catch up" on AHP's BUG history (my upgrade from CM11A to CM15A is not going well at all; WAF plumeting daily!). Thus, since I'm taking the time and effort to review all this 'archived history', I felt that it might help some others to place some of what I deem the more significant posts in one place.  Because I'm working BACKWARDS, I won't know WHICH BUGs are fixed until I finish. But, at a minimum, IMO, this exercise is a good "education" as to the AHP/CM15A's history. As always, opinions are welcomed. ;)

This is a "Work in Progress" document (#2 of 2), working backwards from the OLDEST posts, as I have time...
(All documents will be combined into one thread when I'm finished.)

- Fixed a problem that sometimes caused a crash clicking into the empty area after clearing the Activity Monitor. 

- Fixed a problem in the Smart Macro Wizard that caused a crash when using some time ranges. 

- Fixed a problem where some groupings of macro commands weren't stored correctly. 

- Clear Interface Memory command now works again. 

- Module status should now display correctly when ActiveHome Pro starts. 

- Fixed time in status bar displaying AM instead of PM in the noon hour. 

- 12-hour time display doesn't start AM times with a leading zero anymore. 

- You can now drag modules in the room view using their title bars. 

- "Grab" hand icon now used more consistently to indicate items that can be dragged/moved.


ActiveHome Pro update to v3.168 available - Posted:  «  on: 11/11/2004 02:08 PM  »
Quote from: X10 Pro
Just a quick update to address the problem with automatic updates that we saw with the last release: 

- Fixed a problem that prevented the update installer from running automatically on some systems. 

- Using features that open a Web browser should now respect the default browser correctly. 

We're still working away on other problems.


ActiveHome Pro update to v3.167 available - Posted:  «  on: 11/10/2004 06:14 PM  »
Quote from: X10 Pro
Just a few changes tonight: 

- Added support for Dusk/Dawn-based conditions in the Smart Macro plug-in. 

- Fixed "Show Featured Plug-in" in Preferences so that it is saved correctly. 

- Fixed a problem with plug-in promo reminder not working correctly every time. 

Tomorrow we'll have more, hopefully including having the module status on start-up fixed, along with Clear Interface Memory and a few others.


ActiveHome Pro update to v3.166 available - Posted:  «  on: 11/9/2004 07:58 PM  »
Quote from: X10 Pro
Several changes tonight: 

- New method for starting ActiveHome Pro. 

- Fixed check box in Clear Interface Memory notice dialog not setting the associated preference. 

- Fixed "Edit Module" dialog incorrectly displaying an error creating module with same name as another.

- You can now delete steps in a macro by dragging to the AHP trash can (removed the "Delete Step" button). Use drag and drop or right click to delete a step. 

The first item is a move to using a .exe to run ActiveHome Pro instead of RunDLL32. There weren't any problems with the previous method, but we wanted to clear that up as a suspected source of problems (most of which are gone anyway, actually).


ActiveHome Pro update to v3.165 available - Posted:  «  on: 11/4/2004 06:04 PM  »

ActiveHome Pro update to v3.157 available - Posted:  «  on: 10/6/2004 06:29 PM  »
Quote from: X10 Pro
A new version is now available in the automatic updates. Just a few changes today: 

- Fixed a problem where changing between Simple/Advanced views in Timer Designer caused incorrect Dusk/Dawn values to be displayed. 

- Fixed the upper limit for Dawn offsets when using the spinner buttons 

- Corrected the date ranges stored in the inteface for timers with starting dates later in the year than ending dates. 

I know there are still a couple outstanding issues as reported in these forums. We're working on them.


ActiveHome Pro update to v3.156 available - Posted:  «  on: 10/5/2004 08:52 PM  »
Quote from: X10 Pro
We've just released an ActiveHome Pro update (version 3.156) which should address a number of important problems: 

- "Clear Window" from the File menu in Activity Monitor now clears old history information, not just the current display. 

- Fixed a problem that caused some systems to freeze up when accessing menu items or items in the module pane. 

- Fixed a problem where Dusk/Dawn "Before" offsets were incorrectly processed by the software. 

- Fixed a problem where appliance module timers were sending Bright 100% commands, instead of On. 

- Fixed a problem where changes to timers may not have been passed down to the hardware interface. 

- Changed the maximum offset for Dusk/Dawn timers to 60 minutes to correctly match the CM15A hardware capability. 

- Changed the waythe ActiveHome Pro logo button is positioned in the title bar so it doesn't cover the Help menu at smaller window sizes. 

- Made the Simple/Advanced button in Timer Designer stay visible at smaller window sizes. 
 
The changes to timers are especially noticeable. In the case of problems with appliance module timers, you'll want to delete the existing timers for those modules and make new ones. 

Thanks for the steady stream of feedback and problem information on these forums. We're listening, and will continue to be.

ActiveHome Pro update v3.175 available This is a bug-fix release.  We think we've got the crash on startup that has been affecting some users since v3.170!
 
Also, if you've already upgraded to v3.175 (in the last half hour) you'll need to download the update installer directly as the first set of bits we put up had a crashing bug with the module notepad.


ActiveHome Pro update v3.174 available  (Read 1062 times) - Posted: «  on: 2004-12-15, 20:04:36 »

- Fixed a crash dragging an item in the Macro Summary.
 
- AHP now cancels delayed macro events after downloading new data so that references to old data aren't made.
 
- AHP now automatically downloads the last saved file data to the interface in all cases of an EEPROM error report.
 
- Improved handling of EEPROM read when ActiveHome Pro starts up.


ActiveHome Pro update v3.173 available  (Read 1407 times) - Posted: «  on: 2004-12-07, 17:49:10 »
Changes in todays update:
 
- Fixed a crash using the Macro Summary under Windows 98.
 
- Fixed a problem introduced in 3.172 that caused delays in macros stored in the interface to be calculated incorrectly.
 
- Fixed a problem where consecutive flag commands after the first (using Smart Macros Plug-in) weren't encoded when stored in the interface.
 
- Fixed a crash in Hardware Configuration caused by entering Latitude and Longitude minutes values greater than 60.
 
- Fixed a problem where the on screen status of modules on start-up was displayed as off but 48% brightness if the interface wasn't connected.
 
- Fixed import of original ActiveHome files using wrong dim values in macros in some cases.
 
- Fixed import of original ActiveHome files using wrong off times in timers in some cases.


ActiveHome Pro update v3.172 available  (Read 695 times) - Posted: «  on: 2004-12-03, 19:16:57 »

One big new feature today: RF commands! Instead of having to create new modules to send RF, you can drag an RF command to a macro (from "RF Commands" in the Macro Designer room list) and set the House and Unit code you want to use. We've made a few other bug fixes that should help things, too:
 
- Added ability to use RF commands in macros, available under "RF Commands" in the Macro Designer room list.
 
- Fixed a crash caused by dragging and dropping the last macro in a room to the space to its right.
 
- Fixed a crash occurring when clicking on All Lights On or All Units Off in the Tools menu with the Macro Designer open.
 
- Fixed a crash dragging macro steps to the trash.

A fairly big update today, with some important fixes and changes, especially for conditional macros. The problems with "Day time", "Night time", and certain time range conditions are fixed and you should now be able to use them as they are in the software. Also, timers for conditional macros now check the conditions when the timer runs.
 
- Added "Merge" to file menu, allowing merging contents of another file into the current file.
 
- Timers for conditional macros now check conditions when executing.
 
- Improved Activity Monitor so that it consistently displays commands as they are sent and received.
 
- Added area to keep notes on modules.

We have version 3.202 of ActiveHome Pro and MyHouse now available. Because off the significant changes in this version, we are releasing it initially here in the forums only. Once we establish that it's ready for everyone, we'll release it in an automatic update.

You should still be able to use the old client version just fine.

Changes in this version are:

  • Changed "Troubleshooting" link in Help menu to point to new forum.
    .
  • Changed timestamp in video displays to use local time, not UTC.
    .
  • Fixed problem with saved video being cut off or too short.
    .
  • Fixed problem with events running from interface not being recorded in Activity Monitor (thanks, Noam).
    .
  • Fixed problem with Advanced Command address sequences not running correctly (thanks, Charles).
    .
  • Fixed readability of text in some macro command displays.
    .
  • Fixed Smart Macros Preferences: advanced, etc. and other options not being saved after program exit.
    .
  • MyHouse: Added code to detect server load and performance and select appropriate server.
    .
  • MyHouse: Changed parts of frame tranmission to improve performance and reliability.
    .
  • MyHouse: Improved reliability of video transmission.
    .
  • MyHouse: Fixed overlap of Upload/Download bars and time display in status bar.
    .
  • MyHouse: Added preference for send e-mail method in MyHouse.

Our next update to MyHouse should come very soon, and will take away the reliance on port 8001 being open, so users should be able to use it behind corporate firewalls, etc.[/size]


AHP update to v3.201 available  (Read 1618 times) - Posted: «  on: 2006-02-08, 20:34:39 »
First off, I'd like to apologize for the problems in version 3.200. We should have caught the problems before releasing the update, and should have released the fixes to these problems sooner. What we thought was going to be a simple update turned into something that undermined the product, and I'm sorry for that.
 
In this update we fixed these problems, introduced in the last update:
 
- Lock-up opening Find Other Computers.

- Lock-up using Lifestyle mode.

- Some Preferences options not saving after exiting ActiveHome.
 
In the next update we'll be making the video recording functions work better, and a few other improvements.


AHP update to v3.200 available  (Read 1576 times) - Posted: «  on: 2006-02-01, 16:46:43 »
Version 200 of ActiveHome Pro is now available. It contains the following changes:
 
- Added a Macro Library feature to support wizard configuration of pre-built macro/module sets.
 
- MyHouse: Added macro commands for starting/stopping a dial-up connection to ISP.
 
- MyHouse: Fixed the automatic dial-up connection timer not working to close connection to the ISP.
 
- Fixed a problem with the display of chime modules in the Macro Designer.
 
- Fixed incorrect text sequence in the Intro Wizard.
 
- Fixed a problem that caused the Activity Monitor to not display events correctly.
 
- Fixed a problem with the prefernce for changing the number of events displayed in Activity Monitor.
 
- Fixed screen drawing issue with potential to cause application instability.
 
- Changed Video Window display with MyHouse installed to not show video quality sliders if not connected to MyHouse service.
 
We'll be offering pre-built macros as part of some upcoming promotions, and as a way to show our users how to do more with ActiveHome Pro. You forum users are likely to know how to do the things that will be in these configurations, but most of our users probably don't.
 
The next update should be coming soon. We're working on some fixes and improvements in MyHouse online, and a couple other things. We'll also still working on the general stability of the MyHouse Service.
