General changes:

  • updated OCCU firmware to 3.45.7-4 version with full compatibility to the CCU3 3.45.7 firmware
  • added new ReGaHss logic engine R1.00.0388.0207 (May 1 2019) version which comes with the following changes:
  • fixed another minor timer module issue where during winter->summer dst change a periodic timer could have been executed twice with the same begin time. In addition, even timers outside the start/stop times of the dst change were incorrectly executed.
  • fixed another issue in the begin time calculation of period timers which could result in unexpected segfaults under certain conditions.
  • the history buffer size can now be specified/modified using /etc/rega.conf by specifying a HistoryBufferSize setting.
  • implemented new system.SunAzimuth() and system.SunAltitude() script functions which will return the current sun position in degrees relative to the current position and time.
  • integrated another time module fix where upon startup all periodic timers fired a single time even though their time didn’t match the actual time they should fire.
  • moved scheduler thread startup to be started earlier so that timer evaluations can be performed more early.
  • fixed minor bug where in case a system variable was connected to a channel this reference wasn’t cleared correctly upon removal of the channel/device (https://homematic-forum.de/forum/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=50077)
  • the embedded web server of ReGaHss will not output any Server: response header anymore to reduce the probability to use search engines to find CCU installations insecurely connected via port forwarding.
  • fixed a bug in the astro day/night calculation routines where on a DST switch day from midnight till the switch time an incorrect sunrise/sunset time was returned.
  • if any output is put to the console a timestamp will now be added and the output will be properly synchronized throughout the different used threads.
  • updated buildroot/Linux version to latest stable 2019.02.2 version coming with only minor changes and important security fixes compared to the previous version.
  • raised maximum number of history/protocol entries from 3000 to 10000 so that external applications (e.g. PocketControl) or the WebUI can maintain more history entries.
  • bumped linux kernel version to 4.19.36 for ASUS Tinkerboard and RaspberryPi including the corresponding firmware files.
  • added an under-voltage monitoring check using vcgencmd (RaspberryPi only) and monit so that users are warned if their connected power supply is not capable of providing enough voltage to the system.
  • added strace, tcpdump, ser2net and libnetfilter conntrack as new default packages which should better match the default package set like in a CCU2.
  • integrated basic exFAT filesystem support for e.g. mounting external USB devices.

WebUI changes/fixes:

  • added a new major WebUI feature patch introducing functionality providing sticky filters. Now filters for table displays in the WebUI will keep the filter rules if a WebUI user returns to the table display (e.g. listing devices). This should considerably improve usability when working with the WebUI (#601, #243, @psi-4ward).
  • added new WebUI patch to add IANA conform timezones (e.g. Europe/Berlin) and to also have more locations and more detailed GPS coordinates defined so that users can more easily install a RaspberryMatic system worldwide (#602).
  • integrated a protection against cross site scripting (XSS) attacks by forcing Content-Security-Policy: response headers and masking lighttpd to not output any Server: response header at all to improve security (#597, @psytester).
  • integrated more WebUI related security fixes for the ESP remote script API where for some functions no user level check had been performed and thus non-admin users could easily perform admin operations.
  • enhanced the “Equal than” WebUI patch to also fix a problem in incorrectly setting the condition type thought no condition was changed when saving a WebUI program with string comparisons.
  • added new WebUI patch fixing an incorrect reference to nfs_datepicker.css in the help page, which isn’t required anymore and just resulted in font size errors if included.
  • added a new WebUI bugfix patch which fixes an issue when generating the usrAckInstallWizard files in case a username contains more than plain ASCII characters (#600).
  • updated javascript-based CodeMirror WebUI Scripteditor engine to latest stable 5.45.0 version.


  • fixed bug where monitoring the health of the wlan0 interface did not work correctly on platforms not having any wifi interface at all (#587).
  • fixed triggerAlarm.tcl to generate an alarm system variable will now make sure to correctly set the system viable meta data as well and re-create it if not setup correctly.
  • fixed network setup to not incorrectly flush IPv6 connectivity parameters upon IPv4 DHCP setup and also integrated some minor changes to use /sbin/ip instead of ifconfig where applicable.
  • fixed monit to not monitor irqbalance if only one CPU is present and thus using irqbalance would not make any sense (#596).
  • fixed monit to only trigger an internet connectivity alarm after 5 minutes of constant downtime. This should reduce the probability of alarm messages in case an internet provider performs nightly reconnects which should not be critical.
  • fixed problem where restoreBackup.sh did stop/start services without considering the new monitoring service (#612).
  • fixed the monit monitoring interval from 3s to 13s and generally increased the network port check limits to 5 cycles so that monit will only alarm users after ~65 seconds if a service is down (#604).
