OK, MAX! home automation 1.3 is released:

http://www.dmitry-kazakov.de/ada/max_ho ... mation.htm

Changes to the previous version:

- MQTT server added;
- LAN discovery by default scans all known interfaces;
- Settings page allows explicit setting of the host address to scan or cube address to connect.

The section 3 describes the MQTT topics to get thermostat data. Also, thermostats can be controlled by publishing special topics on the server.

Hi Dmitry,
I would like to use you application on my RPi where Domoticz is also installed. Is graphical support needed for your application?

Yes, you need X11 and GTK3. These come with Debian and Fedora RPI distributions by default. It does not mean you have to have a monitor attached to the RPI's HDMI output. It is also possible to run a GUI application on start-up. E.g. see https://debian-administration.org/artic ... n_X_starts

Debian packages should work for Ubuntu.
AFAIK, Ubuntu 6.10 has finally got GCC-6. So there would be no need as before to upgrade to the system to testing packages in order to be able to install Debian packages.

I've made this: https://github.com/fensoft/maxcube
I'm using it (as a jeedom plugin, with ~50 other people) for several month.
There is nothing to manage the calendar but at least everything else is working.

The new version of MAX! home automation 1.9 is released

http://www.dmitry-kazakov.de/ada/max_ho ... mation.htm

Changes to the previous version:

- MQTT on WebSocket support added;
- The MQTT server's topic names have the leading '/' removed because some MQTT clients reported having troubles with names starting with '/';
- When controlled over HTTP or MQTT the target temperature can be specified to be airing, comfort, and eco according to the thermostat settings;
- The thermostat address can be omitted when in control commands over HTTP or MQTT. In this case the command applies to all thermostats;
- HTTP access control (CORS) support added;
- HTTP server JSONP support added.

The new version of MAX! home automation 2.0 is released

http://www.dmitry-kazakov.de/ada/max_ho ... mation.htm

The new version supports Python scripting to accomplish simple control tasks. Python script has full access to the thermostat data and can control thermostats. It also can read the topics retained by the MQTT broker as well as publish its own topics. That should help better integration with other systems.

While already using "MAX Home Automation v 1.6" (which is really great software), I tried to install v2.0 io Win10 in order to use the python interface.
Unfortunately it crashes during installation without any warning. Is there anyoneone else with the same problem?
