Due to some intermittent issues with mDNS (iotawatt.local with Bonjour) I am reverting MINOR users to the prior stable release.
02_05_05 has been in ALPHA and BETA for more than a month, with few reported issues, but I am now hearing from a few users experiencing the issue.
With this problem, the mDNS responder can fail to start so access using iotawatt.local on systems using mDNS (Bonjour) cannot access using iotawatt.local. Access using IP works fine.
IoTaWatt also supports another zeroconf methgod called LLMNR, which seems be working OK. That method is native to Windows machines. Apple products typically use Bonjkour, although it can be installed on most other platforms. It doesn’t appear to be working on Avahi based systems (Linux) as well.
I will keep ALPHA and BETA on this release and will try to get a workable resolution for this soon. The changes came with the new core, which I am very reluctant to abandon because it resolves many issues that I consider to be more important.
