PiAware 3.8.1 Available

I’ve seen no announcement from FlightAware yet, but just a heads up that 3.8.1 is now available from the FA repositories. Run ‘sudo apt update’ to download and install. Seems stable so far. :+1:t2:

i needed to

run sudo apt upgrade

to get the update. But it’s working
Any changelog available?

I like to run “sudo apt update” to see if anything is available and if so, run “sudo apt full-upgrade” to actually install items.

I’d like to see a changelog as well.

i tried “update” but it did not show me anything available.

A change that was done on Mar 19, shows that the piaware that was developing branch is staged to became full.

I have recompiled the AMD64 (Ubuntu 19.10) branch and it is still at 3.8.0.

Rename or delete exsisting folder piaware_builder, and clone new source code, you will get ver 3.8.1

I cannot scroll the screen to get to the bottom to see the log. Nice blue interface. Using Chrome and Firefox. Both the same.

Shrink your screen to get it to fit. 80% works.

at 80% screen size i can see the screen scroll, at 67% i can see the entire screen (again, on Firefox)…but as noted, i am still on 3.8.0 so i don’t think this is a 3.8.1 bug!

Haven’t had to use any work around in the past, but you are right, shrinking the screen to 90% or less does work. Thank you. Definitely not a 3.8.1 bug, this is something changed with the web site coding. I don’t remember the last time i used the log so not much help there.

Victory! I had to delete both the Piaware and the Dump1090-fa cloned folders and repeat install.

What I am not sure about is that I still used ./sensible-build.sh bionic option with Piaware on my Ubuntu 19.10.
It works, but it sets up Piaware for Ubuntu 1804 :roll_eyes:

For Ubuntu 19.1, you should use buster, not bionic

If you’re on disco, you should tell piaware_builder to build for disco.

Oops, I missed that disco is now included.
Thanks for correction.

This scrolling seem seem to be a bug as the overlay window does not scroll.

Workaround:
move the line with the configuration wheel up as much as possible to the top of your browser window, then click it. On high-res screens you should be able to see the full window.

or

zoom out the browser window, by holding STRG and turning the mouse wheel (or use the zoom function in browser). This picture was taken on a FullHD screen with zoom set to 80%
