I am continuing work on it, as stated slightly earlier in the thread, I'm working on making it work with the beagleboard at the same time.

Ok ...
I hope that the application is developed and the bugs fixed.
At the moment I still have not found the time to finish the configuration but I wanted to ask you some questions.
It has the function PID?
There is a possibility to plan the steps?
The temperature is only in F or C in?
Thank you ...
P.S. Just wait to finish and test it if it works I prepare a very compact image of the SD to share.

Do you plan on continuing development? I just picked up on this and would like to look into it. Also going to be working on a project of this nature for my home. It would be replacing my home thermostat, the plan in early stages are a temperature probe in each room with some way to be able to control the temp in each room individually but still maintain using 1 unit. Now I don't mean I would be able to heat one room and cool another. The thought is to be able to use dampers to close off air flow. Might want to use something like this Wireless Thermocouple and RTD Industrial Probe Assemblies. I could see these used on a brew rig as well.
You might want to take a look at my project for that as well. One of the folks is using it to control radiant heaters/ air conditioners in each room.

Not sure what you mean by "has the function PID?", the images show that you can input PID values, it's not automatic PID Tuning, it's all manual at this point. That is better then auto-tuning according to the documentation I found.

There will be documentation written for the steps in the GIT repo, it didn't upload the readme when I converted to an Eclipse project.

The temperature can be switched from F to C, please see the example configuration file.

My current project is to get it working on beagleboard (shouldn't be too difficult), improve the logging for first failure analysis and to enable the volume measurement. I'm on vacation for a few weeks so don't expect anything.

Then I'll be adding functionality so that people can add their own modules (i.e. RTD temp controls, I2C or analog or PWM output modules) as a drag and drop.

For PID autotuning understood as but if you set to manual should work the same.
Thanks for the info.

But the development on Raspberry stops?

No, since it's portable code it'll work on both platforms.

Older version, I haven't reuploaded the readme yet.
