New web page online

We are about to move to a new web space. To allow for a smooth transition, the new page (this one) is already on-line. So, hopefully, the posts announcing the transitions here and there (at the old site) will be the mayor signs of the relocations. But there is more:

  • Improved control: By doing more on our own, we have more flexibility on what we do. Several times already, we came to the point that we wanted to implement something for the page but were not able to because of our web page plan. This will be different from now on.
  • Improved data protection: The first thing we use our newly gained power for, is sniping of the trail of your data to third parties. Also, hosting has moved from the US to Europe.
  • More to come: This is not planned to be a relaunch but a smooth transition. Honestly, I would not even write this if I did not have to test the post notification mailer.

v0.3.1 – Buggy Battery

With v0.3, the API of the GenericStorage has changed. Due to the open structure of solph, the old parameter names were still accepted, but practically ignored. Therefore users may not notice that a default value is used instead of the value they wanted. Especially after an update from v0.2.x to v0.3.0, code often still runs but produces different results. With the new v0.3.1 release, an error is raised when legacy parameter names are used. We work on a structure to avoid such problems in the future. To update, just:
