Hivemind,
Happy Thanksgiving. Traditionally team reef-pi celebrates our gratitude to its community through a major release. We are happy to announce the immediate availability of reef-pi 5.0. The key highlights of this release are:
  • Support for multichannel light charts: Since the introduction of the next-generation PWM profile system (that provides lunar, diurnal. random, and many other profiles), multi-channel light charts were not available in reef-pi. We are bringing back 2.0 style light charts, but this time better, with support for all profile types and with higher durability (chart data is based on actual values passed to PWM channels in real-time, and not from precomputed estimates).
  • Lights can be controlled from macros and timers seamlessly.
  • ATO usage can be reset.
  • The temperature control chart now indicates % time heater/cooler was on instead of raw seconds run.
  • Journal UI : reef-pi introduced a manual parameter logging API, aka journal in the 4.0 series. In the 5.0 release we are extending the previous barebone journal UI to add entries and charts based on those entries. Charts based on journal entries can be used in main dashboard as well.
  • Control charts for pH module to indicate equipment usage (based on ph or any other analog inputs), similar to existing temperature control charts.
Like any other release, there were numerous tech upgrades (go and nodejs language runtimes, react, npm and go packages). Reef-pi now incorporated a security vulnerability scanning system in its build process.

5.0 release builds can be found here . reef-pi 4.0 or newer users can upgrade their system directly through the admin sections.

We would like thank and express our gratitude to reef2reef, adafruit, raspberry pi foundation, all the opensource projects that made reef-pi possible (go, react ..), and above all the community. 5.0 release continued the past three major release trends of large contributions coming from community members. This time GitHub user schwabix-1311 made a significant contribution in UI hygiene and i18n efforts. r2r member @hectorespert also chipped in with several patches.

sinerely
ranjib on behalf of all reef-pi developers

Since 2.0 , Reef-pi web ui is responsive, I.e. reef-pi ui will adapt to the device. Combined with a powerful macro system introduced in 4.0, it opened the avenue of do complex semiautomatic workflows like water change Or wet skimming etc within the reach of a an mobile Here is an example of my Red Sea reefer 300xl (80G) setup

First off a huge thanks to everyone involved have installed 5.0. and am very excited to use the journal feature, but seem to be having some issues, I am assuming that for instance name would be like "Sal" Description"Salinity" then units would this be "1.025" or "sg" either way when I press save it comes up with 2 "page not found" errors then journal check box in the settings unchecked itself"Must be missing something

once you enable journal , make sure you reload reef-pi . Any changes under the capabilities/configuration section requires reef-pi to reload to take effect
