FreeScada status of the project.

Hi all.

I wonder if someone is still working on this project, I downloaded the source from the sourceforge site, but this with compilation errors.

If you have someone working on this project and would be grateful to help me, I would like to take this project to meet a need and also contribute to my community in general.

My contact email is jean.gerhardt@gmail.com

Thank you.

FreeSCADA 2.0.0.5

I’m
glad to
announce new version of FreeSCADA 2 (preview). There are number of
major improvements such as
  • Archiver module allows you to save project variables (channels) into a database.At this
    moment there is only one simple “rule” for archiving by using system timer and
    specified time interval.

  • Archived data can be analyzed by using Trends of Table views from “RunTime”
    module. You can specify any desired time interval for data retrieval.

  • This version also has two new communication plugins: MODBUS protocol support
    (basic implementation so far) and configurable timers (allows you to define custom timers and use them like normal project variable).

  • We are also moving forward with improving Schema editing capabilities. This version has basic implementation of “bindings” technique when user can “bind” any element property with “any” project variable. We hope it can make editing easier and flexible in future.

  • A lot of bug fixes.

FreeSCADA 2.0.0.2

Following our practice to release preview versions we created new package 2.0.0.2. There you can find several new features basically aimed to verify complete flow of creating and monitoring processes. The major features are the following:
  • Added “Run Time” module for executing Designer’s schemas by using data from several data sources: OPC servers and built-in Data Simulator module.

  • There are also a number of new “actions” for linking data with your visual elements: Rotate, Move, Show (changes object’s opacity) and Value modifier (updates value of a complex control like Gauge). So, you could start making real applications.

  • Basic support for importing SVG and XAML graphical vector files. This means that you can get any nice picture created by 3rd party editor and enrich it by animation with your data.

  • Several SVG files added into “Samples” folder.

FreeSCADA 2.0.0.1

New preview version of FreeSCADA 2 has been arrived. It has the following new functionality:
  • Two new graphical primitives: polyline and button control.
  • Added initial implementation of Actions mechanism. It should allow to link data channels with visual appearance of an element. For example you can rotate or move an element depending on channel value. Actions can be added by selecting “ActionTool” and clicking on some element. Data channel name can be specified on Property Browser window. Please let us know whether this method of adding new actions is convenient and expected way or you'd like to do this differently.
  • Now you can import any XAML graphics into your schemas by clicking on "File->Import Graphics" menu item.
