WebTemp changelog

Version history of WebTemp:

- Bug fixes.

+ Added setup option to initially choose between
  SpeedFan and CPUID Hardware Monitor,
+ added support for Open Hardware Monitor (http://openhardwaremonitor.org),
+ introduced customizable idle power off* thresholds in WTClient.ini [PowerOff]:
  IdlePOCPU (default: 2000 = 20 %) and IdlePONet (default: 5 kB/s),
+ added ShortTimeFormat, ShortDateFormat and LongTimeFormat
  to WTDisplay.ini [Misc] to customize/relocalize time and date formats,
+ added saving of values in text (csv) form (this will be optional soon),
- removed "Start minimized" option,
  WebTemp will remember the last state automatically now,
- moved "Hide on close" to misc options and made it default,
- fixed issues related to autostart and installer when SpeedFan began to require
  admin rights. WebTemp's function and autostart should be ok now in Vista/7,
- improved custom sensor order support for AIDA64 / Everest Ultimate,
- removed splash screen, even from the freeware.

- Bug fixes,
- reverted to OpenSSL 1.0.0a since 1.0.0c was causing problems in Windows 2000.

+ Added custom sensor order support for AIDA64 / Everest Ultimate,
+ added "FTPPassiveUseControlHost" entry to the [FTP] section of WTServer.ini
  to decide whether WebTemp should use (0) or ignore (1, which is default) the
  IP the FTP server tells it to use for the data connection in passive mode;
  if you experience problems, try setting this to 0,
+ added "FTPUseTLS" entry to the [FTP] section of WTServer.ini:
  FTPUseTLS=0 no encryption,
  FTPUseTLS=1 (explicit TLS) the connection is initially unencrypted, then a
              command for activating the encryption is issued. If the server
              does not support this, the connection is continued unencrypted,
  FTPUseTLS=2 (implicit TLS) the connection is encrypted immediately upon
  FTPUseTLS=3 (TLS required) the connection is initially unencrypted, then a
              command for activating the encryption is issued. If the server
              does not support this, the connection gets cancelled,
  (default is 1),
+ added "FTPUseCCC" entry to the [FTP] section of WTServer.ini:
  FTPUseCCC=1 forces the control channel to be unencrypted
  (default is 0),
+ added "FTPTryNATFastTrack" entry to the [FTP] section of WTServer.ini
  (default is 0),
- improved ACPI wakeup behaviour during changes between daylight saving time and
  standard time.

+ Added support for AIDA64 (http://www.aida64.com) sensor values and names,
- fixed FTP issues.

- Fixed an issue with transparency* in .png images.

+ Added import of CPUID Hardware Monitor and SpeedFan (experimental) sensor names,
+ added "TStepStats" entry in [Temperatures] in WTDisplay.ini to specify
  custom temperature diagram grid height (in degree Celsius),
- made installation default values more intelligent,
- cosmetic improvements.

+ Using OpenSSL (http://www.openssl.org) WebTemp now supports (automatic) secure
  explicit TLS on SMTP and FTP connections (leave the ports and hosts as they are
  and if the servers support it, it is used),
- reworked the autoscaling code for the fan speed display,
- upgraded CPUID Hardware Monitor read out code for version 1.16,
- removed all code for obtaining CPU frequency except via the Windows API 
  "CallNTPowerInformation" which still does not display the correct value
  on every system, but this should cause less trouble than before. 

+ Added support for CPUID Hardware Monitor, http://www.cpuid.com/hwmonitor.php
  (unfortunately only the free version of it has a shared memory area),
+ added individual "Path" entries in WTClient.ini under [Light], [Banner], [Stats]*,
  [Stats24]*, [Stats7]*, [Stats31]*, [Stats365]* and [Textuploader]* to specify
  separate custom remote (FTP) directories,
- fixed network traffic display,
- fixed issues related to standby/hibernation/wakeup.

+ Added expert options to define stats and banner image width,
+ added possibility to manually add network paths for disk monitoring,
- fixed disk space display on large partitions (> 2 TB),
- fixed some issues related to waking up from standby.

+ Added "SpeedFanParams" entry in [Misc] in WTClient.ini to specify SpeedFan
  start parameters, example: SpeedFanParams=/NOSMBSCAN
+ added new tags (eg. for textuploader*):
  %tX%, %fX%, %vX%, %cpuX% (temperature, fan speed, voltage, CPU load;
  replace X by 1-10),
  %mempage% (total memory),
  %allocmempage% (allocated total memory),
  %freemempage% (free total memory),
  %memcache% (cache size),

  HDD allocation and uptime) data in daily, weekly, monthly and yearly statistics*,
+ added low disk space mail alert*,
- fixed CPU frequency on extra small light display,
- fixed window position on startup in multi monitor environments,

  .ini and log files. The files are being automatically copied to the new
  folder upon first start. Presence of a file "oldsettingsdir" in its install
  directory makes WebTemp revert to the old behavior,
