OctoPrint Changelog

1.3.0 (2016-12-08)

Features

  • You can now create folders in the file list, upload files into said folders and thus better manage your projects' files.
  • New wizard dialog for system setups that can also be extended by plugins. Replaces the first run dialog for setting up access control and can also be triggered in other cases than only the first run, e.g. if plugins necessitate user input to function properly. Added wizards to help configuring the following components in OctoPrint on first run: access control, webcam URLs & ffmpeg path, server commands (restart, shutdown, reboot), printer profile. Also extended the bundled Cura plugin to add a wizard for its first setup to adjust path and import a slicing profile, and the bundled Software Update plugin to ask the user for details regarding the OctoPrint update configuration. Also see below.
  • New command line interface (CLI). Offers the same functionality as the old one plus:
    • a built-in API client (octoprint client --help)
    • built-in development tools (octoprint dev --help)
    • extendable through plugins implementing the octoprint.cli.commands hook (octoprint plugins --help)
  • New features within the plugin system:
    • Plugins may now give hints in which order various hooks or mixin methods should be called by optionally providing an integer value that will be used for sorting the callbacks prior to execution.
    • Plugins may now define configuration overlays to be applied on top of the default configuration but before config.yaml.
    • New mixin UiPlugin for plugins that want to provide an alternative web interface delivered by the server.
    • New mixin WizardPlugin for plugins that want to provide wizard components to OctoPrint's new wizard dialog.
    • New hook octoprint.cli.commands for registering a command with the new OctoPrint CLI
    • New hook octoprint.comm.protocol.gcode.received for receiving messages from the printer
    • New hook octoprint.printer.factory for providing a custom factory to contruct the global PrinterInterface implementation.
    • New TemplatePlugin template type: wizard
  • New Javascript client library for utilizing the server's API, can be reused by UiPlugins.
  • OctoPrint will now track the current print head position on pause and cancel and provide it as new template variables pause_position/cancel_position for the relevant GCODE scripts. This will allow more intelligent pause codes that park the print head at a rest position during pause and move it back to the exact position it was before the pause on resume (Example). Note that this is NOT enabled by default and for now will necessitate adjusting the pause and resume GCODE scripts yourself since position tracking with multiple extruders or when printing from SD is currently not fool proof thanks to firmware limitations regarding reliable tracking of the various E values and the currently selected tool T. In order to fully implement this feature, the following improvements were also done:
    • New PositionUpdated event when OctoPrint receives a response to an M114 position query.
    • Extended PrintPaused and PrintCancelled events with position data from M114 position query on print interruption/end.
  • Added (optional) firmware auto detection. If enabled (which it is by default), OctoPrint will now send an M115 to the printer on initial connection in order to try to figure out what kind of firmware it is. For FIRMWARE_NAME values containing "repetier" (case insensitive), all Repetier-specific flags will be set on the comm layer. For FIRMWARE_NAME values containing "reprapfirmware" (also case insensitive), all RepRapFirmware-specific flags will be set on the comm layer. For now no other handling will be performed.
  • Added safe mode flag --safe and config setting startOnceInSafeMode that disables all third party plugins when active. The config setting will automatically be removed from config.yaml after the server has started through successfully.
  • Added octoprint config CLI that allows easier manipulation of config.yaml entries from the command line. Example: octoprint config set --bool server.startOnceInSafeMode true

Improvements

  • #1048 - Added "Last print time" to extended file information (see also #1522)
  • #1422 - Added option for post roll for timed timelapse to duplicate last frame instead of capturing new frames. That makes for a faster render at the cost of a still frame at the end of the rendered video. See also #1553.
  • #1551 - Allow to define a custom bounding box for valid printer head movements in the printer profile, to make print dimension check more flexible.
  • #1583 - Strip invalid pip arguments from pip uninstall commands, if provided by the user as additional pip arguments.
  • #1593 - Automatically migrate old manual system commands for restarting OctoPrint and rebooting or shutting down the server to the new system wide configuration settings. Make a backup copy of the old config.yaml before doing so in case a manual rollback is required.
  • New central configuration option for commands to restart OctoPrint and to restart and shut down the system OctoPrint is running on. This allows plugins (like the Software Update Plugin or the Plugin Manager) and core functionality to perform these common administrative tasks without the user needing to define everything redundantly.
  • pip helper now adjusts pip install parameters corresponding to detected pip version:
    • Removes --process-dependency-links when it's not needed
    • Adds --no-use-wheel when it's needed
    • Detects and reports on completely broken versions
  • Better tracking of printer connection state for plugins and scripts:
    • Introduced three new Events Connecting, Disconnecting and PrinterStateChanged.
    • Introduced new GCODE script beforePrinterDisconnected which will get sent before a (controlled) disconnect from the printer. This can be used to send some final commands to the printer before the connection goes down, e.g. M117 Bye from OctoPrint.
    • The communication layer will now wait for the send queue to be fully processed before disconnecting from the printer for good. This way it is ensured that the beforePrinterDisconnected script or any further GCODE injected into it will actually get sent.
  • Additional baud rates to allow for connecting can now be specified along side additional serial ports via the settings dialog and the configuration file.
  • Option to never send checksums (e.g. if the printer firmware doesn't support it), see #949.
  • Added secondary temperature polling interval to use when printer is not printing but a target temperature is set - this way the graph should be more responsive while monitoring a manual heatup.
  • Test buttons for webcam snapshot & stream URL, ffmpeg path and some other settings (see also #183).
  • Temperature graph automatically adjusts its Y axis range if necessary to accomodate the plotted data (see also #632).
  • "Fan on" command now always sends S255 parameter for better compatibility across firmwares.
  • Warn users with a notification if a file is selected for printing that exceeds the current print volume (if the corresponding model data is available, see also #1254)
  • Added option to also display temperatures in Fahrenheit (see also #1258)
  • Better error message when the config.yaml file is invalid during startup
  • API now also allows issuing absolute jogging commands to the printer
  • Printer profile editor dialog refactored to better structure fields and explain where they are used
  • Option to detect z-hops during z-based timelapses and not trigger a snapshot (see also 1148)
  • File rename, move and copy functionality exposed via API, not yet utilized in stock frontend but available in file manager plugin.
  • Try to assure a sound SSL environment for the process at all times
  • Improved caching:
    • Main page and asset files now carry proper ETag and Last-Modified headers to allow for sensible browser-side caching
    • API sets Etag and/or Last-Modified headers on responses to GET requests where possible and feasible to allow for sensible browser-side caching
  • Renamed GcodeFilesViewModel to FilesViewModel - plugin authors should accordingly update their dependencies from gcodeFilesViewModel to filesViewModel. Using the old name still works, but will log a warning and stop working with 1.4.x.
  • Make sure volume.depth for circular beds is forced to volume.width in printer profiles
  • Support for M116
  • Support M114 responses without whitespace between coordinates (protocol consistency - who needs it?).
  • M600 is now marked as a long running command by default.
  • Don't focus files in the file list after deleting a file - made the list too jumpy.
  • Cura plugin: "Test" button to check if path to cura engine is valid.
  • Cura plugin: Wizard component for configuring the path to the CuraEngine binary and for importing the first slicing profile
  • GCODE viewer: Added Layer Up/Down buttons (see also #1306)
  • GCODE viewer: Allow cycling through layer via keyboard (up, down, pgup, pgdown)
  • GCODE viewer: Allow changing size thresholds via settings menu (see also #1308)
  • GCODE viewer: Added support for GCODE arc commands (see also #1382)
  • Language packs: Limit upload dialog for language pack archives to .zip, .tar.gz, .tgz and .tar extensions.
  • Plugin Manager: Adjusted to utilize new pip helper
  • Plugin Manager: Show restart button on install/uninstall notification if restart command is configured and a restart is required
  • Plugin Manager: Track managable vs not managable plugins
  • Plugin Manager: Allow hiding plugins from Plugin Manager via config.yaml.
  • Plugin Manager: Limit upload dialog for plugin archives to .zip, .tar.gz, .tgz and .tar extensions.
  • Plugin Manager: Allow closing of all notifications and close them automatically on detected server disconnect. No need to keep a "Restart needed" message around if a restart is in progress.
  • Software Update plugin: More verbose output for logged in administrators. Will now log the update commands and their output similar to the Plugin Manager install and uninstall dialog.
  • Software Update plugin: CLI for checking for and applying updates
  • Software Update plugin: Wizard component for configuring OctoPrint's update mechanism
  • Software Update plugin: "busy" spinner on check buttons while already checking for updates.
  • Software Update plugin: Prevent update notification when wizard is open.
  • Plugin Manager / Software Update plugin: The "There's a new version of pip" message during plugin installs and software updates is no longer displayed like an error.
  • Plugin Manager / Software Update plugin: The "busy" dialog can no longer be closed accidentally.
  • Timelapse: Better (& earlier) reporting to the user when something's up with the snapshot URL causing issues with capturing timelapse frames and hence making it impossible to render a timelapse movie on print completion.
  • Virtual printer: Usage screen for the !!DEBUG commands on !!DEBUG, !!DEBUG:help or !!DEBUG:?
  • Updated frontend dependencies (possibly relevant for plugin authors):
    • Bootstrap to 2.3.2
    • JQuery to 2.2.4
    • Lodash to 3.10.1
    • SockJS to 1.1.1
  • Better error resilience against errors in UI components.
  • Various improvements in the GCODE interpreter which performs the GCODE analysis
  • Various adjustments towards Python 3 compatibility (still a work in progress though, see also #1411, #1412, #1413, #1414)
  • Various code refactorings
  • Various small UI improvements
  • Various documentation improvements

Bug fixes

  • #1047 - Fixed 90 degree webcam rotation for iOS Safari.
  • #1148 - Fixed retraction z hop setting for Z-triggered timelapses. Was not correctly propagated to the backend and hence not taking effect.
  • #1567 - Invalidate /api/settings cache on change of the user's login state (include user roles into ETag calculation).
  • #1586 - Fixed incompatibility of update script and command line helper with non-ASCII output from called commands.
  • #1588 - Fixed feedback controls again.
  • #1599 - Properly handle exceptions that arise within the update script during runtime.
  • It's not possible anymore to select files that are not machinecode files (e.g. GCODE) for printing on the file API.
  • Changes to a user's personal settings via the UI now propagate across sessions.
  • Improved compatibility of webcam rotation CSS across newer browsers (see also #1436)
  • Fix for system menu not getting properly reloaded after entries changed
  • Invalidate /api/settings cache on change of the currently enabled plugins (by including plugin names into ETag calculation) and/or on change of the current effective config.
  • Fix for /api/settings not being properly invalidated for plugin settings that do not have a representation in config.yaml but are only added at runtime (and hence are not captured by config.effective).
  • Invalidate /api/timelapse cache on change of the current timelapse configuration.
  • Fixed an issue causing the version number not to be properly extracted from sdist tarballs generated under Windows.
  • Get rid of double scroll bar in printer profile editor.
  • Fixed tracking of current byte position in file being streamed from disk. Turns out that self._handle.tell lied to us thanks to line buffering.
  • Fixed select & print not working anymore for SD files thanks to a timing issue.
  • Fixed PrintFailed event payload (was still missing new folder relevant data).
  • Fixed premature parse stop on M114 and M115 responses with ok-prefix.
  • Make sure ?l10n request parameter gets also propagated to API calls as X-Locale header in case of locale sensitive API responses.
  • Fix language mixture due to cached template configs including localized strings; cache per locale.
  • Only insert divider in system menu after core commands if there are custom commands.
  • Fix update of webcam stream URL not being applied due to caching.
  • Fixed a rare race condition causing the new "The settings changed, reload?" popup to show up even when the settings change originated in the same client instance.
  • Fixed a bunch of missing translations.
  • Pinned Tornado version to 4.0.2. Former version requirement was able to pull in a beta version causing issues with websockets due to a bug in permessage-deflate handling. The Tornado requirement needs an update, but we'll leave it at 4.0.2 for 1.3.0 since we'll need to do some migration work for compatibility with anything newer. Potentially related to #1523.
  • Fix a rare race condition in the command line helper and the update script that could cause the code to hang due to waiting on an event that would never be set.
  • Fix issue with handling new settings substructures when they are compared to existing settings data in order to find the structural diff.
  • Fix for the temperature graph not displaying the data history on site reload.

More information

1.2.18 (2016-11-30)

Improvements

  • Allow arbitrary frame rates for creating timelapses. Before, the entered fps value was also directly used as frame rate for the actual video, which could cause problems with any frame rates not specified in the MPEG2 standard. Now OctoPrint will use a standard frame rate for the rendered video and render the timelapse stills into the finished movie with the configured frame rate.
  • Limited Cura profile importer to .ini files and clarified the supported versions
  • Add support for the R parameter for M109 and M190

Bug fixes

  • #1541 - Fix selecting the printer profile to use by default
  • #1543 - Fix target temperature propagation from communication layer
  • #1567 - Fix issue with restricted settings getting parsed to the wrong data structure in the frontend if loaded anonymously first.
  • #1571 - Fix parsing of port number from HTTP Host header for IPv6 addresses
  • Fix issue with settings restriction causing internal settings defaults to be changed.

More information

1.2.17 (2016-11-08)

Improvements

  • Files like config.yaml etc will now persist their permissions, with a lower and upper permission bounds for sanitization (e.g. removing executable flags on configuration files but keeping group read/write permissions if found).
  • Log full stack trace on socket connection errors when debug logging for octoprint.server.util.sockjs is enabled
  • SettingsPlugins may now mark configuration paths as restricted so that they are not returned on the REST API
  • Updated LESS.js version
  • Improved the serial.log logging handler to roll over serial log on new connections to the printer instead of continuously appending to the same file. Please note that serial.log is a debugging tool only and should not be left enabled unless you are trying to troubleshoot something in your printer communication.
  • Split JS/CSS/LESS asset bundles according into asset bundles for core + bundled plugins ("packed_core.{js|css|less}") and third party plugins ("packed_plugins.{js|css|less}"). That will allow the core UI to still function properly even if an installed third party plugin produces invalid JS and therefore causes a parser error for the whole plugin JS file. See #1544 for an example of such a situation.

Bug fixes

  • #1531 - Fixed encoding bug in HTTP request processing triggered by content type headers on form data fields
  • Fixed forced config.yaml save on startup caused by mistakenly assuming that printer parameters were always migrated.
  • Fixed issue causing remember_me cookie not to be deleted properly on logout
  • Fixed broken filter toggling on ItemListHelper class used for various lists throughout the web interface
  • Fixed an issue with the preliminary page never reporting that the server is now up if the page generated during preliminary caching had no cache headers set (e.g. because it contained the first run setup wizard)
  • Fixed a bug causing the update of OctoPrint to not work under certain circumstances: If 1.2.16 was installed and the settings were never saved via the "Settings" dialog's "Save", the update of OctoPrint would fail due to a KeyError in the updater. Reason is a renamed property, properly switched to when saving the settings.
  • Fixed the logging subsystem to properly clean up after itself.
  • Fixed a wrong order in loading JS files on the client introduced in 1.2.17rc2 to make the UI more resilient against broken plugin JS.
  • Properly handle empty JS file list from plugins. Solves a 500 on OctoPrint instances without any third party plugins installed generated during web asset bundling introduced in 1.2.17rc2.

More information

1.2.16 (2016-09-23)

Improvements

  • #1434: Make sure to sanitize any file names in the upload folder that do not match OctoPrint's file name "sanitization standard" automatically when creating a file listing. This should solve issues with UI functionality like selecting a file for printing or deleting a file to not work with files that were uploaded manually to the uploads folder. As a side note: Please don't do this, use the watched folder if you want to SCP/FTP/copy files directly to OctoPrint.
  • #1434: Allow [ and ] in uploaded file names.
  • #1481: Bring back non-fuzzy layer time estimates in the GCODE viewer.
  • Improved fuzzy print time displays in the frontend. Rounding now takes overall duration into account - durations over a day will be rounded up/down to half days, durations over an hour will be rounded up/down to half hours, durations over 30min will be rounded to 10min segments, durations below 30min will be rounded up or down to the next minute depending on the seconds and finally if we are talking about less than a minute, durations over 30s will return "less than a minute", durations under 30s will return "a couple of seconds".
  • Improved intermediary loading page: Don't report server as ready and reload until preliminary caching has been done, IF preliminary caching will be done.
  • Added release channels to OctoPrint's bundled Software Update plugin. You will now be able to subscribe to OctoPrint's maintenance or devel release candidates in addition to stable versions. Read more about Release Channels on the wiki.
  • Return a "400 Bad Request" instead of a "500 Internal Server Error" if a multipart/form-data request (e.g. a file upload) is sent which lacks the boundary field.

Bug Fixes

  • #1448: Don't "eat" first line of the pause script after a pause triggering M0 but send it to the printer instead
  • #1477: Only report files enqueued for analysis which actually are (as in, don't claim to have queued STL files for GCODE analysis)
  • #1478: Don't display inaccurate linear estimate ("6 days remaining") until 30 minutes have passed, even if nothing else is available. Potentially related to #1428.
  • #1479: Make sure set cookies are post fixed with a port specific suffix and that the path they are set on takes the script root from the request into account.
  • #1483: Filenames in file uploads may also now be encoded in ISO-8859-1, as defined in RFC 7230. Solves an issue when sending files with non-ASCII-characters in the file name from Slic3r.
  • #1491: Fixed generate/delete API key in the user settings
  • #1492: Fixed a bug in the software update plugin depending on the presence of the prerelease flag which is only present when added manually or using a non stable release channel.

More information

1.2.15 (2016-07-30)

Improvements

Bug Fixes

  • #1423 - Fixed an issue with certain printers dropping or garbling communication when setting the read timeout of the serial line. Removed the dynamic timeout setting introduced by #1409 to solve this.
  • #1425 - Fixed an error when trying to close a printer connection that had not yet been opened and was None
  • Fixed "Last Modified" header calculation for views where only one source file was present

(Commits)

1.2.14 (2016-07-28)

Improvements

  • #935 - Support alternative source file types and target extensions in SlicerPlugins.
  • #1393 - Added dedicated sub commands on the job API to pause and resume a print job (instead of only offering a toggle option).
  • Better "upload error" message with a list of supported extensions (instead of hardcoded ones)
  • Use fuzzy times for print time estimation from GCODE analysis
  • Allow M23 "File opened" response with no filename (RepRapPro)
  • Allow intermediary startup page to forward query parameters and fragments from initial call to actual web frontend
  • More error resilience when rendering templates (e.g. from plugins)
  • Make sure that all bytes of a line to send to the printer have actually been sent
  • "Tickle" printer when encountering a communication timeout while idle
  • Report CLOSED/CLOSED_WITH_ERROR states as "Offline" in frontend for more consistency with startup NONE state which already was reported as "Offline"
  • Another attempt at a saner print time estimation: Force linear (way less accurate) estimate if calculation of more accurate version takes too long, sanity check calculated estimate and use linear estimate if it looks wrong, improved threshold values for calculation. Read the second half of this post on the mailing list on why accurate print time estimation is so difficult to achieve.
  • Display print job progress percentage on progress bar.
  • Added an indicator for print time left prediction accuracy and explanation of its origin as tooltip.
  • Improved visual distinction of "State" sidebar panel info clusters.

Bug Fixes

  • #1385 - Send all non-protocol messages from printer to clients.
  • #1388 - Track consecutive timeouts even when idle and disconnect from printer when it's not responding any longer.
  • #1391 - Only use the first value from the X-Scheme header for the reverse proxy setup. Otherwise there could be problems when multiple reverse proxies were configured chained together, each adding their own header to the mix.
  • #1407 - If a file is uploaded with the "print" flag set to true, make sure to clear that flag after the print job has been triggered so that now all following uploaded or selected files will start printing on their own.
  • #1409 - Don't report a communication timeout after a heatup triggered by a print from SD.
  • Fixed scrolling to freshly uploaded files, also now highlighting the file entry for better visibility.
  • Fixed overeager preemptive caching of invalid protocols.
  • Fix modal background of update confirmation not vanishing
  • Ensure log entries and messages from printer are sent to frontend already converted to utf-8. Otherwise even one line in the log that can't be converted automatically without error can cause updates from the backend to not arrive.
  • Report correct printer state including error strings even after disconnecting
  • While printing, be sure to read the next line from file and send that if the current line was filtered
  • Small fixes in the GCODE analysis
  • Small fixes in the documentation

1.2.13 (2016-06-16)

Bug Fixes

  • #1373: Don't parse B: as bed temperature when it shows up as part of a position report from M114.
  • #1374: Don't try to perform a passive login when the components we'd need to inform about a change in login state aren't yet available. Solves a bug that lead - among other things - to the Plugin Manager and the Software Update Plugin not showing anything but misleading errors until the user logged out and back in.
  • Fixed the temperature graph staying uninitialized until a connection to a printer was established.
  • Fixed an error causing issues during frontend startup if the browser doesn't support tracking browser visibility.
  • Fixed an error causing issues during frontend startup if the browser doesn't support the capabilities needed for the GCODE viewer.

(Commits)

1.2.12 (2016-06-09)

Improvements

  • #1338: Threshold configuration fields now include information about how to specify the thresholds.
  • Mark unrendered timelapses currently being processed (recording or rendering) in the list and remove action buttons so no accidental double-processing can take place.
  • Removed file extension from "rendering" and "rendered" notifications, was misleading when using the mp4 wrapper script.
  • Added some new events for manipulation of slicing profiles.
  • Small fix of the german translation.

Bug Fixes

  • #1314: Do not change the extension of .g files being uploaded to SD (e.g. auto0.g)
  • #1320: Allow deletion of *.mp4 timelapse files (see this wrapper script).
  • #1324: Make daemonized OctoPrint properly clean up its pid file again (see also #1330).
  • #1326: Do not try to clean up an unrendered timelapse while it is already being deleted (and produce way too much logging output in the process).
  • #1343: Events are now processed in the order they are fired in, making e.g. the "timelapse rendering" message always appear before "timelapse failed" and hence not stay on forever in case of a failed timelapse.
  • #1344: ProgressPlugins now get also notified about a progress of 0%.
  • #1357: Fixed wrongly named method call on editing access control options for a user, causing that to not work properly.
  • #1361: Properly reload profile list for currently selected slicer in the slicing dialog on change of profiles.
  • #1364: Fixed a race condition that could cause the UI to not initialize correctly due to 401 errors, leaving it in an unusable state until a reload.
  • Fixed concurrent message pushing to the frontend being able to break push messages for the session by forcing synchronization of SockJS message sending.
  • Do not require admin rights for connecting/disconnecting, like it was in 1.1.x (note that this is supposed to become configurable behaviour once #1110 gets implemented)

(Commits)

1.2.11 (2016-05-04)

Important Announcement

Due to a recent change in the financial situation of the project, the funding of OctoPrint is at stake. If you love OctoPrint and want to see its development continue at the pace of the past two years, please read on about its current funding situation and how you can help: "I need your support".

Improvements

  • Added option to treat resend requests as ok for such firmwares that do not send an ok after requesting a resend. If you printer communication gets stalled after a resend request from the firmware, try checking this option.
  • Added an "About" dialog to properly inform about OctoPrint's license, contributors and supporters.
  • Added a announcement plugin that utilizes the RSS feeds of the OctoPrint Blog and the plugin repository to display news to the user. By default only the "important announcement" category is enabled. This category will only be used for very rare situations such as making you aware of critical updates or important news. You can enable further categories (with more announcements to be expected) in the plugin's settings dialog.

Bug Fixes

  • #1300 - Removed possibility to accidentally disabling local file list by first limiting view to files from SD and then disabling SD support.
  • #1315 - Fixed broken post roll on z-based timelapses.
  • Fixed CSS data binding syntax on the download link in the files list
  • Changed control distance from jQuery data into a knockout observerable and observerableArray
  • Allow an unauthorized user to logout from a logedin interface state

(Commits)

1.2.10 (2016-03-16)

Improvements

  • Improved performance of console output during plugin installation/deinstallation
  • Slight performance improvements in the communication layer
  • Log small log excerpt to octoprint.log upon encountering a communication error.
  • Changed wording in "firmware error" notifications to better reflect that there was an error while communicating with the printer, since the error condition can also be triggered by serial errors while trying to establish a connection to the printer or when already connected.
  • Support downloading ".mp4" timelapse files. You'll need a custom wrapper script for timelapse rendering for this to be relevant to you. See also #1255
  • The communication layer will now wait up to 10s after clicking disconnect in order to send any left-over lines from its buffers.
  • Moved less commonly used configuration options in Serial settings into "Advanced options" roll-out.

Bug Fixes

  • #1224 - Fixed an issue introduced by the fix for #1196 that had the "Upload to SD" button stop working correctly.
  • #1226 - Fixed an issue causing an error on disconnect after or cancelling of an SD print, caused by the unsuccessful attempt to record print recovery data for the file on the printer's SD card.
  • #1268 - Only add bed temperature line to temperature management specific start gcode in CuraEngine invocation if a bed temperature is actually set in the slicing profile.
  • #1271 - If a communication timeout occurs during an active resend request, OctoPrint will now not send an M105 with an increased line number anymore but repeat the last resent command instead.
  • #1272 - Don't add an extra ok for M28 response.
  • #1273 - Add an extra ok for M29 response, but only if configured such in "Settings" > "Serial" > "Advanced options" > "Generate additional ok for M29"
  • #1274 - Trigger M20 only once after finishing uploading to SD
  • #1275 - Prevent M105 "cascade" due to communication timeouts
  • Fixed wrong tracking of extruder heating up for M109 Tn commands in multi-extruder setups.
  • Fixed start of SD file uploads not sending an M110.
  • Fixed job data not being reset when disconnecting while printing.

(Commits)

1.2.9 (2016-02-10)

Improvements

  • #318 - Snapshots for timelapses are now named in a non-colliding, job-based way, allowing a new timelapse to start while the other is still being rendered (although printing with an active timelapse rendering job is not recommended and will be solved with a proper render job queue in a later version). Timelapses that were not successfully rendered are kept for 7 days (configurable, although not via the UI so far) and can be manually rendered or deleted through a new UI component within the timelapse tab that shows up if unrendered timelapses are detected.
  • #485 - "Timelapse rendering" notification is now persistent, even across reloads/client switches. That should make it easier to see that a rendering job is currently in progress.
  • #939 - Updated to Knockout 3.4.0
  • #1204 - Display total print time as estimated by GCODE viewer on GCODE viewer tab. That will allow access to an estimate even if the server hadn't yet calculated that when a print started. Note that due to slightly different implementation server and client side the resulting estimate might differ.
  • OctoPrint now serves an intermediary page upon start that informs the user about the server still starting up. Once the server is detected as running, the page automatically switches to the standard interface.
  • OctoPrint now displays a link to the release notes of an updated component in the update notification, the update confirmation and the version overview in the settings dialog. Please always make sure to at least skim over the release notes for new OctoPrint releases, they might contain important information that you need to know before updating.
  • Improved initial page loading speeds by introducing a preemptive cache. OctoPrint will now record how you access it and on server start pre-render the page so it's ideally available in the server-side cache when you try to access it.
  • Initialize login user name and password with an empty string and clear both on successful login (see #1175).
  • Added a "Refresh" button to the file list for people who modify the stored files externally (doing this is not encouraged however due to reasons of book keeping, e.g. metadata tracking etc).
  • "Save" button on settings dialog is now disabled while background tasks (getting or receiving config data from the backend) are in progress.
  • Improved performance of terminal tab on lower powered clients. Adaptive rate limiting now ensures the server backs off with log updates if the client can't process them fast enough. If the client is really slow, log updates get disabled automatically during printing. This behaviour can be disabled with override buttons in the terminal tab's advanced options if necessary.
  • Added option to ignore any unhandled errors reported by the firmware and another option to only cancel ongoing prints on unhandled errors from the firmware (instead of instant disconnect that so far was the default).
  • Made version compatibility check PEP440 compliant (important for plugin authors).
  • Do not hiccup on manually sent M28 commands.
  • Persist print recovery data on print failures (origin and name of printed file, position in file when print was aborted, time and date of print failure). Currently this data isn't used anywhere, but it can be accessed from plugins in order to add recovery functionality to OctoPrint.
  • Small performance improvements in update checks.
  • The file upload dialog will now only display files having an extension that's supported for upload (if the browser supports it, also see #1196).

Bug Fixes

  • #1007 - Don't enable the "Print" button if no print job is selected.
  • #1181 - Properly slugify UTF-8 only file names.
  • #1196 - Do not show drag-n-drop overlay if server is offline.
  • #1208 - Fixed retraction_combing profile setting being incorrectly used by bundled Cura plugin (see #1209)
  • Fixed OctoPrint compatibility check in the plugin manager, could report False for development versions against certain versions of Python's setuptools (thanks to @ignaworm who stumbled over this).
  • Fixed a missing parameter in PluginSettings.remove call (see #1177).
  • Docs: Fixed the example for a custom M114 control to also match negative coordinates.
  • Reset scroll position in settings dialog properly when re-opening it or switching tabs.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented system menu entries that were added to a so far empty system menu make the menu show up.
  • Fixed an issue that made requests to restricted resources fail even though the first run wizard had been completed successfully.
  • Fixed an issue where an unknown command or the suppression of a command could cause the communication to stall until a communication timeout was triggered.
  • Strip unwanted ANSI characters from output produced by pip versions 8.0.0, 8.0.1 and 8.0.3 that prevents our plugin installation detection from working correctly.

1.2.8 (2015-12-07)

Notes for Upgraders

A bug in 1.2.7 prevents directly updating to 1.2.8, here's what to do

A bug in OctoPrint 1.2.7 (fixed in 1.2.8) prevents updating OctoPrint to version 1.2.8. If you try to perform the update, you will simply be told that "the update was successful", but the update won't actually have taken place. To solve this hen-egg-problem, a plugin has been made available that fixes said bug (through monkey patching).

The plugin is called "Updatefix 1.2.7" and can be found in the plugin repository and on Github.

Before attempting to update your installation from version 1.2.7 to version 1.2.8, please install the plugin via your plugin manager and restart your server. Note that you will only see it in the Plugin Manager if you need it, since it's only compatible with OctoPrint version 1.2.7. After you installed the plugin and restarted your server you can update as usual. The plugin will self-uninstall once it detects that it's running under OctoPrint 1.2.8. After the self-uninstall another restart of your server will be triggered (if you have setup your server's restart command, defaults to sudo service octoprint restart on OctoPi) in order to really get rid of any left-overs, so don't be alarmed when that happens, it is intentional.

If you cannot or don't want to use the plugin, alternatively you can switch OctoPrint to "Commit" based tracking via the settings of the Software Update plugin, update, then switch back to "Release" based tracking (see this screenshot).

Bed temperatures are now only displayed if printer profile has a heated bed configured

This release fixes a bug that caused bed temperature display and controls to be available even if the selected printer profile didn't have a heated bed configured.

If your printer does have a heated bed but you are not seeing its temperature in the "Temperature" tab after updating to 1.2.8, please make sure to check the "Heated Bed" option in your printer profile (under Settings > Printer Profiles) as shown in this short GIF.

Improvements

  • Version numbering now follows PEP440.
  • Prepared some things for publishing OctoPrint on PyPi in the future.
  • BlueprintPlugin mixin now has an errorhandler decorator that serves the same purpose as Flask's (#1059)
  • Interpret M25 in a GCODE file that is being streamed from OctoPrint as indication to pause, like M0 and M1.
  • Cache rendered page and translation files indefinitely. That should significantly improve performance on reloads of the web interface.
  • Added the string "unknown command" to the list of ignored printer errors. This should help with general firmware compatibility in case a firmware lacks features.
  • Added the strings "cannot open" and "cannot enter" to the list of ignored printer errors. Those are errors that Marlin may report if there is an issue with the printer's SD card.
  • The "CuraEngine" plugin now makes it more obvious that it only targets CuraEngine versions up to and including 15.04 and also links to the plugin's homepage with more information right within the settings dialog.
  • Browser tab visibility is now tracked by the web interface, disabling the webcam and the GCODE viewer if the tab containing OctoPrint is not active. That should reduce the amount of resource utilized by the web interface on the client when it is not actively monitored. Might also help to mitigate #1065, the final verdict on that one is still out though.
  • The printer log in the terminal tab will now be cut off after 3000 lines even if autoscroll is disabled. If the limit is reached, no more log lines will be added to the client's buffer. That ensures that the log will not scroll and the current log excerpt will stay put while also not causing the browser to run into memory errors due to trying to buffer an endless amount of log lines.
  • Increased timeout of "waiting for restart" after an update from 20 to 60sec (20sec turned out to be too little for OctoPi for whatever reason).
  • Added a couple of unit tests

Bug Fixes

  • #1120 - Made the watchdog that monitors and handles the watched folder more resilient towards errors.
  • #1125 - Fixed OctoPrint displaying bed temperature and controls and allowing the sending of GCODE commands targeting the bed (M140, M190) if the printer profile doesn't have a heated bed configured.
  • Fixed an issue that stopped the software updater working for OctoPrint. The updater reports success updating, but no update has actually taken place. A fix can be applied for this issue to OctoPrint version 1.2.7 via the Updatefix 1.2.7 plugin. For more information please refer to the Important information for people updating from version 1.2.7 above.
  • Fix: Current filename in job data should never be prefixed with /
  • Only persist plugin settings that differ from the defaults. This way the config.yaml won't be filled with lots of redundant data. It's the responsibility of the plugin authors to responsibly handle changes in default settings of their plugins and add data migration where necessary.
  • Fixed a documentation bug (#1067)
  • Fixed a conflict with bootstrap-responsive, e.g. when using the ScreenSquish Plugin (#1103)
  • Fixed OctoPrint still sending SD card related commands to the printer even if SD card support is disabled (e.g. M21).
  • Hidden files are no longer visible to the template engine, neither as (GCODE) scripts nor as interface templates.
  • The hostname and URL prefix via which the OctoPrint web interface is accessed is now part of the cache key. Without that being the case the cache could be created referring to something like /octoprint/prefix/api/ for its API endpoint (if accessed via http://somehost:someport/octoprint/prefix/ first time), which would then cause the interface to not work if accessed later via another route (e.g. http://someotherhost/).
  • Fixed a JavaScript error on finishing streaming of a file to SD.
  • Fixed version reporting on detached HEADs (when the branch detection reported "HEAD" instead of "(detached"
  • Fixed some path checks for systems with symlinked paths (#1051)
  • Fixed a bug causing the "Server Offline" overlay to pop under the "Please reload" overlay, which could lead to "Connection refused" browser messages when clicking "Reload now" in the wrong moment.

(Commits)

1.2.7 (2015-10-20)

Improvements

  • #1062 - Plugin Manager now has a configuration dialog that among other things allows defining the used pip command if auto detection proves to be insufficient here.
  • Allow defining additional pip parameters in Plugin Manager. That might make sudo-less installation of plugins possible in situations where it's tricky otherwise.
  • Improved timelapse processing (backported from devel branch):
    • Individually captured frames cannot "overtake" each other anymore through usage of a capture queue.
    • Notifications will now be shown when the capturing of the timelapse's post roll happens, including an approximation of how long that will take.
    • Usage of requests instead of urllib for fetching the snapshot, appears to also have positive effects on webcam compatibility.
  • Some more defensive escaping for various settings in the UI (e.g. webcam URL)
  • Switch to more error resilient saving of configuration files and other files modified during runtime (save to temporary file & move). Should reduce risk of file corruption.
  • Downloading GCODE and STL files should now set more fitting Content-Type headers (text/plain and application/sla) for better client side support for "Open with" like usage scenarios.
  • Selecting z-triggered timelapse mode will now inform about that not working when printing from SD card.
  • Software Update Plugin: Removed "The web interface will now be reloaded" notification after successful update since that became obsolete with introduction of the "Reload Now" overlay.
  • Updated required version of psutil and netifaces dependencies.

Bug Fixes

  • #1057 - Better error resilience of the Software Update plugin against broken/incomplete update configurations.
  • #1075 - Fixed support of sudo for installing plugins, but added big visible warning about it as it's not recommended.
  • #1077 - Do not hiccup on UTF-8 BOMs (or other BOMs for that matter) at the beginning of GCODE files.
  • Fixed an issue that caused user sessions to not be properly associated, leading to Sessions getting duplicated, wrongly saved etc.
  • Fixed internal server error (HTTP 500) response on REST API calls with unset Content-Type header.
  • Fixed an issue leading to drag-and-drop file uploads to trigger frontend processing in various other file upload widgets.
  • Fixed a documentation error.
  • Fixed caching behaviour on GCODE/STL downloads, was setting the ETag header improperly.
  • Fixed GCODE viewer not properly detecting change of currently visualized file on Windows systems.

(Commits)

1.2.6 (2015-09-02)

Improvements

  • Added support for version reporting on detached checkouts (see #1041)

Bug Fixes

  • Pinned requirement for psutil dependency to version 3.1.1 of that library due to an issue when installing version 3.2.0 of that library released on 2015-09-02 through a python setup.py install on OctoPrint. Also pinned all other requirements to definitive versions that definitely work while at it to keep that from happening again.

(Commits)

1.2.5 (2015-08-31)

Improvements

  • #986 - Added tooltip for "additional data" button in file list.
  • #1028 - Hint about why timelapse configuration is disabled.
  • New central configuration option for commands to restart OctoPrint and to restart and shut down the system OctoPrint is running on. This allows plugins (like the Software Update Plugin or the Plugin Manager) and core functionality to perform these common administrative tasks without the user needing to define everything redundantly.
  • Settings dialog now visualizes when settings are saving and when they being retrieved. Also the Send/Cancel buttons are disabled while settings are saving to prevent duplicated requests and concurrent retrieval of the settings by multiple viewmodels is disabled as well.
  • Better protection against rendering errors from templates provided by third party plugins.
  • Better protection against corrupting the configuration by using a temporary file as intermediate buffer.
  • Added warning to UI regarding Z timelapses and spiralized objects.
  • Better compatibility with Repetier firmware:
    • Added "Format Error" to whitelisted recoverable communication errors (see also #1032).
    • Added option to ignore repeated resend requests for the same line (see also discussion in #1015).
  • Software Update Plugin:
    • Adjusted to utilize new centralized restart commands (see above).
    • Allow configuration of checkout folder and version tracking type via Plugin Configuration.
    • Display message to user if OctoPrint's checkout folder is not configured or a non-release version is running and version tracking against releases is enabled.
    • Clear version cache when a change in the check configuration is detected.
    • Mark check configurations for which an update is not possible.
  • Made disk space running low a bit more obvious through visual warning on configurable thresholds.

Bug Fixes

  • #985 - Do not hiccup on unset Content-Type part headers for multipart file uploads.
  • #1001 - Fixed connection tab not unfolding properly (see also #1002).
  • #1012 - All API responses now set no-cache headers, making the Edge browser behave a bit better
  • #1019 - Better error handling of problems when trying to write the webassets cache.
  • #1021 - Properly handle serial close on Macs.
  • #1031 - Special handling of M112 (emergency stop) command:
    • Jump send queue
    • In case the printer's firmware doesn't understand it yet, at least shutdown all of the heaters
    • Disconnect
  • Properly reset job progress to 0% when restarting a previously completed printjob (see #998).
  • Report an update as failed if the pip command returns a return code that indicates failure.
  • Fixed sorting of templates: could only be sorted by name, individual configurations were ignored (see #1022).
  • Fixed positioning of custom context menus: were offset due to changes in overall positioning settings (see #1023).
  • Software Update: Don't use display version for comparison of git commit hashs.
  • Fixed temperature parsing for multi extruder setups.
  • Fixed nested vertical and horizontal custom control layouts.

(Commits)

1.2.4 (2015-07-23)

Improvements

  • RepeatedTimer now defaults to daemon set to True. This makes sure plugins using it don't have to remember to set that flag themselves in order for the server to properly shut down when timers are still active.
  • Fixed a typo in the docs about logging.yaml (top level element is loggers, not logger).
  • Support for plugins with external dependencies (dependency_links in setuptools), interesting for plugin authors who need to depend on Python libraries that are (not yet) available on PyPI.
  • Better resilience against errors within plugins.

Bug Fixes

  • Do not cache web page when running for the first time, to avoid caching the first run dialog popup along side with it. This should solve issues people were having when configuring OctoPrint for the first time, then reloading the page without clearing the cache, being again prompted with the dialog with no chance to clear it.
  • Fix/workaround for occasional white panes in settings dialog on Safari 8, which appears to have an issue with fixed positioning.
  • Fixed form field truncation in upload requests that could lead to problems when trying to import Cura profiles with names longer than 28 characters.
  • Fixed webcam rotation for timelapse rendering.
  • Fixed user settings not reaching the editor in the frontend.
  • Notifications that are in process of being closed don't open again on mouse over (that was actually more of an unwanted feature).

(Commits)

1.2.3 (2015-07-09)

Improvements

  • New option to actively poll the watched folder. This should make it work also if it is mounted on a filesystem that doesn't allow getting notifications about added files through notification by the operating system (e.g. network shares).
  • Better resilience against senseless temperature/SD-status-polling intervals (such as 0).
  • Log exceptions during writing to the serial port to octoprint.log.

Bug Fixes

  • #961 - Fixed a JavaScript error that caused an error to be logged when "enter" was pressed in file or plugin search.
  • #962 - url(...)s in packed CSS and LESS files should now be rewritten properly too to refer to correct paths
  • Update notifications were not vanishing properly after updating:
    • Only use version cache for update notifications if the OctoPrint version still is the same to make sure the cache gets invalidated after an external update of OctoPrint.
    • Do not persist version information when saving settings of the Software Update plugin
  • Always delete files from the watched folder after importing then. Using file preprocessor plugins could lead to the files staying there.
  • Fixed an encoding problem causing OctoPrint's Plugin Manager and Software Update plugins to choke on UTF-8 characters in the update output.
  • Fixed sorting by file size in file list
  • More resilience against missing plugin assets:
    • Asset existence will now be checked before they get included in the assets to bundle by webassets, logging a warning if a file isn't present.
    • Monkey-patched webassets filter chain to not die when a file doesn't exist, but to log an error instead and just return an empty file instead.

(Commits)

1.2.2 (2015-06-30)

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an admin-only security issue introduced in 1.2.0, updating is strongly advised.

(Commits)

1.2.1 (2015-06-30)

Improvements

  • More flexibility when interpreting compatibility data from plugin repository. If compatibility information is provided only as a version number it's prefixed with >= for the check (so stating a compatibility of only 1.2.0 will now make the plugin compatible to OctoPrint 1.2.0+, not only 1.2.0). Alternatively the compatibility information may now contain stuff like >=1.2,<1.3 in which case the plugin will only be shown as compatible to OctoPrint versions 1.2.0 and up but not 1.3.0 or anything above that. See also the requirement specification format of the pkg_resources package.
  • Only print the commands of configured event handlers to the log when a new debug flag is present in the config (see the docs). Reduces risk of disclosing sensitive data when sharing log files.

Bug Fixes

  • #956 - Fixed server crash when trying to configure a default slicing profile for a still unconfigured slicer.
  • #957 - Increased maximum allowed body size for plugin archive uploads.
  • Bugs without tickets:
    • Clean exit on SIGTERM, calling the shutdown functions provided by plugins.
    • Don't disconnect on volume.init errors from the firmware.
    • touch uploaded files on local file storage to ensure proper "uploaded date" even for files that are just moved from other locations of the file system (e.g. when being added from the watched folder).

(Commits)

1.2.0 (2015-06-25)

Note for Upgraders

  • The Cura integration has changed in such a way that OctoPrint now calls the CuraEngine directly instead of depending on the full Cura installation. See the wiki for instructions on how to change your setup to accommodate the new integration.

New Features

  • OctoPrint now has a plugin system which allows extending its core functionality.
  • Added internationalization of UI. Translations of OctoPrint are being crowd sourced via Transifex. Language Packs for both the core application as well as installed plugins can be uploaded through a new management dialog in Settings > Appearance > Language Packs. A translation into German is included, further language packs will soon be made available.
  • Printer Profiles: Printer properties like print volume, extruder offsets etc are now managed via Printer Profiles. A connection to a printer will always have a printer profile associated.
  • File management now supports STL files as first class citizens (including UI adjustments to allow management of uploaded STL files including removal and reslicing) and also allows folders (not yet supported by UI). STL files can be downloaded like GCODE files.
  • Slicing has been greatly improved:
    • It now allows for a definition of slicing profiles to use for slicing plus overrides which can be defined per slicing job (defining overrides is not yet part of the UI but it's on the roadmap).
    • A new slicing dialog has been added which allows (re-)slicing uploaded STL files (which are now displayed in the file list as well). The slicing profile and printer profile to use can be specified here as well as the file name to which to slice to and the action to take after slicing has been completed (none, selecting the sliced GCODE for printing or starting to print it directly)
    • The slicing API allows positioning the model to slice on the print bed (Note: this is not yet available in the UI).
    • Slicers themselves are integrated into the system via SlicingPlugins.
    • Bundled Cura Plugin allows slicing through CuraEngine up to and including 15.04. Existing Cura slicing profiles can be imported through the web interface.
  • New file list: Pagination is gone, no more (mobile incompatible) pop overs, instead scrollable and with instant search
  • You can now define a folder (default: ~/.octoprint/watched) to be watched for newly added GCODE (or -- if slicing support is enabled -- STL) files to automatically add.
  • New type of API key: App Session Keys for trusted applications
  • OctoPrint now supports action:... commands received via debug messages (// action:...) from the printer. Currently supported are
    • action:pause: Pauses the current job in OctoPrint
    • action:resume: Resumes the current job in OctoPrint
    • action:disconnect: Disconnects OctoPrint from the printer Plugins can add supported commands by hooking into the octoprint.comm.protocol.action hook
  • Mousing over the webcam image in the control tab enables key control mode, allowing you to quickly move the axis of your printer with your computer's keyboard (#610):
    • arrow keys: X and Y axes
    • W, S / PageUp, PageDown: Z axes
    • Home: Home X and Y axes
    • End: Home Z axes
    • 1, 2, 3, 4: change step size used (0.1, 1, 10, 100mm)
  • Controls for adjusting feed and flow rate factor added to Controls (#362)
  • Custom controls now also support slider controls
  • Custom controls now support a row layout
  • Users can now define custom GCODE scripts to run upon starting/pausing/resuming/success/failure of a print or for custom controls (#457, #347)
  • Bundled Discovery Plugin allows discovery of OctoPrint instances via SSDP/UPNP and optionally also via ZeroConf/Bonjour/Avahi.
  • Bundled Software Update Plugin takes care of notifying about new OctoPrint releases and also allows updating if configured as such. Plugins may register themselves with the update notification and application process through a new hook "octoprint.plugin.softwareupdate.check_config".

Improvements

  • Logging is now configurable via config file
  • Added last print time to additional GCODE file information
  • Better error handling for capture issues during timelapse creation & more robust handling of missing images during timelapse creation
  • Start counting the layers at 1 instead of 0 in the GCODE viewer
  • Upgraded Font Awesome to version 3.2.1
  • Better error reporting for timelapse rendering and system commands
  • Custom control can now be defined so that they show a Confirm dialog with configurable text before executing (#532 and #590)
  • Serial communication: Also interpret lines starting with "!!" as errors
  • Added deletion of pyc files to the python setup.py clean command
  • Settings now show a QRCode for the API Key (#637)
  • Username in UI is no longer enclosed in scare quotes (#595)
  • Username in login dialog is not automatically capitalized on mobile devices anymore (#639)
  • "Slicing Done" and "Streaming Done" notifications now have a green background (#558)
  • Files that are currently in use, be it for slicing, printing or whatever, are now tracked and can not be deleted as long as they are in use
  • Settings in UI get refreshed when opening settings dialog
  • New event "SettingsUpdated"
  • "Print time left" is now not displayed until it becomes somewhat stable. Display in web interface now also happens in a fuzzy way instead of the format hh:mm:ss, to not suggest a high accuracy anymore where the can't be one. Additionally OctoPrint will use data from prior prints to enhance the initial print time estimation.
  • Added handler for uncaught exceptions to make sure those get logged, should make the logs even more useful for analysing bug reports
  • The server now tracks the modification date of the configuration file and reloads it prior to saving the config if it has been changed during runtime by external editing, hence no config settings added manually while the server was running should be overwritten anymore.
  • Display a "Please Reload" overlay when a new server version or a change in installed plugins is detected after a reconnect to the server.
  • Better handling of errors on the websocket - no more logging of the full stack trace to the log, only a warning message for now.
  • Daemonized OctoPrint now cleans up its pidfile when receiving a TERM signal (#711)
  • Added serial types for OpenBSD (#551)
  • Improved behaviour of terminal:
    • Disabling autoscrolling now also stops cutting off the log while it's enabled, effectively preventing log lines from being modified at all (#735)
    • Applying filters displays [...] where lines where removed and doesn't cause scrolling on filtered lines anymore (#286)
    • Added a link to scroll to the end of the terminal log (useful for when autoscroll is disabled)
    • Added a link to select all current contents of the terminal log for easy copy-pasting
    • Added a display of how many lines are displayed, how many are filtered and how many are available in total
  • Frame rate for timelapses can now be configured per timelapse (#782)
  • Added an option to specify the amount of encoding threads for FFMPEG (#785)
  • "Disconnected" screen now is not shown directly after a close of the socket, instead the client first tries to directly reconnect once, and only if that doesn't work displays the dialog. Should reduce short popups of the dialog due to shaky network connections and/or weird browser behaviour when downloading things from the UI.
  • Development dependencies can now be installed with pip -e .[develop]
  • White and transparent colors ;) are supported for the navigation bar (#789)
  • Drag-n-drop overlay for file uploads now uses the full available screen space, improving usability on high resolution displays (#187)
  • OctoPrint server should no longer hang when big changes in the system time happen, e.g. after first contact to an NTP server on a Raspberry Pi image. Achieved through monkey patching Tornado with this PR.
  • Serial ports matching /dev/ttyAMA* are not anymore listed by default (this was the reason for a lot of people running into problems while attempting to connect to their printer on their Raspberry Pis, on which /dev/ttyAMA0 is the OS's serial console by default). Added configuration of additional ports to the Serial Connection section in the Settings to make it easier for those people who do indeed have their printer connected to /dev/ttyAMA0.
  • Better behaviour of the settings dialog on low-width devices, navigation and content also now scroll independently from each other (see also #823)
  • Renamed "Temperature Timeout" and "SD Status Timeout" in Settings to "Temperature Interval" and "SD Status Interval" to better reflect what those values are actually used for.
  • Added support for rectangular printer beds with the origin in the center (#682 and #852). Printer profiles now contain a new settings volume.origin which can either be lowerleft or center. For circular beds only center is supported.
  • Made baudrate detection a bit more solid, still can't perform wonders.
  • Only show configuration options for additional extruders if more than one is available, and don't include offset configuration for first nozzle which acts as reference for the other offsets (#677).
  • Cut off of the temperature graph is now not based on the number of data points any more but on the actual time of the data points. Anything older than n minutes will be cut off, with n defaulting to 30min. This value can be changed under "Temperatures" in the Settings (#343).
  • High-DPI support for the GCode viewer (#837).
  • Stop websocket connections from multiplying (#888).
  • New setting to rotate webcam by 90° counter clockwise (#895 and #906)
  • System commands now be set to a) run asynchronized by setting their async property to true and b) to ignore their result by setting their ignore property to true.
  • Various improvements of newly introduced features over the course of development:
    • File management: The new implementation will migrate metadata from the old one upon first startup after upgrade from version 1.1.x to 1.2.x. That should speed up initial startup.
    • File management: GCODE Analysis backlog processing has been throttled to not take up too many resources on system startup. Freshly uploaded files should still be analyzed at full speed.
    • Plugins: SettingsPlugins may track versions of configuration format stored in config.yaml, including a custom migration method getting called when a mismatch between the currently stored configuration format version and the one reported by the plugin as current is detected.
    • Plugins: Plugins may now have a folder for plugin related data whose path can be retrieved from the plugin itself via its new method get_plugin_data_folder.
    • Plugin Manager: Don't allow plugin management actions (like installing/uninstalling or enabling/disabling) while the printer is printing (see also unreproduced issue #936).
    • Plugin Manager: More options to try to match up installed plugin packages with discovered plugins.
    • Plugin Manager: Display a more friendly message if after the installation of a plugin it could not be correctly identifier.
    • Software Update: Enforce refreshing of available updates after any changes in enabled plugins.

    • #685 - Quoted file name for Timelapse creation to not make command hiccup on ~ in file name
    • #709 - Fixed file sending to SD card
    • #714 - Fixed type validation of printer profiles
    • Heating up the heated bed (if present) was not properly configured in CuraEngine plugin
    • #720 - Fixed translation files not being properly copied over during install
    • #724 - Fixed timelapse deletion for timelapses with non-ascii characters in their name
    • #726 - Fixed babel_refresh command
    • #759 - Properly initialize counter for template plugins of type "generic"
    • #775 - Error messages in javascript console show the proper name of the objects
    • #795 - Allow adding slicing profiles for unconfigured slicers
    • #809 - Added proper form validation to printer profile editor
    • #824 - Settings getting lost when switching between panes in the settings dialog (fix provided by #879)
    • #892 - Preselected baudrate is now properly used for auto detected serial ports
    • #909 - Fixed Z-Timelapse for Z changes on G1 moves.
    • Fixed another instance of a missing branch field in version dicts generated by versioneer (compare #634). Caused an issue when installing from source archive downloaded from Github.
    • #931 - Adjusted octoprint_setuptools to be compatible to older versions of setuptools potentially site-wide installed on hosts.
    • #942 - Settings can now be saved again after installing a new plugin. Plugins must not use super anymore to call parent implementation of SettingsPlugin.on_settings_save but should instead switch to SettingsPlugin.on_settings_save(self, ...). Settings API will capture related TypeErrors and log a big warning to the log file indicating which plugin caused the problem and needs to be updated. Also updated all bundled plugins accordingly.
    • Software Update: Don't persist more check data than necessary in the configuration. Solves an issue where persisted information overrode updated check configuration reported by plugins, leading to a "an update is available" loop. An auto-migration function was added that should remove the redundant data.
  • Various fixes without tickets:
    • GCODE viewer now doesn't stumble over completely extrusionless GCODE files
    • Do not deliver the API key on settings API unless user has admin rights
    • Don't hiccup on slic3r filament_diameter comments in GCODE generated for multi extruder setups
    • Color code successful or failed print results directly in file list, not just after a reload
    • Changing Timelapse post roll activates save button
    • Timelapse post roll is loaded properly from config
    • Handling of files on the printer's SD card contained in folders now works correctly
    • Don't display a "Disconnected" screen when trying to download a timelapse in Firefox
    • Fixed handling of SD card files in folders
    • Fixed refreshing of timelapse file list upon finished rendering of a new one
    • Fixed /api/printer which wasn't adapter yet to new internal offset data model
    • Made initial connection to printer a bit more responsive: Having to wait for the first serial timeout before sending the first M105 even when not waiting for seeing a "start" caused unnecessary wait times for reaching the "Operational" state.
    • Log cancelled prints only once (thanks to @imrahil for the headsup)

  • Small fixes for timelapse creation:
    • #344 - Made timelapses capable of coping with missing captures in between by decrementing the image counter again if there was an error fetching the latest image from the snapshot URL (backport of 1a7a468 and bf9d5ef)
    • #693 - Try not to capture an image if image counter is still unset
    • [unreported] Synchronize image counter decrementing as well as incrementing to prevent rare race conditions when generating the image file names

1.1.0 (2014-09-03)

New Features

  • New REST API, including User API Keys additionally to the global API key. Please note that this will break existing API clients as it replaces the old API (same endpoint). You can find the documentation of the new API at docs.octoprint.org.
  • New Event structure allows more flexibility regarding payload data, configuration files will be migrated automatically. You can find the documentation of the new event format and its usage at docs.octoprint.org.
  • Support for multi extruder setups. With this OctoPrint now in theory supports an unlimited amount of extruders, however for now it's artificially limited to 9.
  • Log files can be accessed from within the browser via the Settings dialog (#361)
  • Timelapses can now have a post-roll duration configured which will be rendered into the video too to not let it end so abruptly (#384)

Improvements

  • Stopping the application via Ctrl-C produces a less scary message (#277)
  • Webcam stream is disabled when control tab is not in focus, reduces bandwidth (#316)

  • Also provide the filename (basename without the path) in print events
  • Support for circular beds in the GCODE viewer (#407)
  • The dimensions of the print bed can now be configured via the Settings (#396)

  • Made "Center viewport on model" and "Zoom in on model" in the GCODE viewer automatically deselect and de-apply if viewport gets manipulated by the user (#398)
  • GCODE viewer now interprets inverted axes for printer control and mirrors print bed accordingly (#431)
  • Added clean command to setup.py, removes old build artifacts (mostly interesting for developers)
  • Added version resource on API which reports application and API version
  • Made the navbar static instead of fixed to improve usability on mobile devices (#257)
  • Switch to password field upon enter in username field, submit login form upon enter in password field
