Update Owfs to latest version 2.8p14

Reported by: jazzdabbler@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Chaos Calmer 15.05
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: owfs Cc:


Would be nice to update OWFS to the latest version 2.8p14.

New release has many minor fixes and some new features.

New features

  1. Sparse array support

Allow array properties to have arbitrary extensions.
This means that properties can use the extension (the part after the dot) as data to be passed to the request rather than as an index into a complete set of values.
The array can be numeric or text, isn't cached, and the .ALL and .BYTE extensions are not relevant or supported
A new slave was created "example_slave" given the arbitrary family code of DD.
Example_slave shows developers how to use the new sparse array feature.

  1. From Pascal Baerten: support for recently added functions of bae0911, new SEQ, WR and QUERY commands
  1. Add JSON support to owhttpd from Roberto Spadim

URLs with the /json/ prefix return properly formatted json responses to assist AJAX application of 1-wire and web technilogy.

  1. Make the T8A voltage device visible in DS2406 if appropriate


  1. Fix clearing alias names
  1. Escape more characters for alias names to fix some assignment difficulties

in owhttpd

  1. Fix a mutex lockup in HA5
  1. Fix a threading issue in owserver
  1. Extensive work on w1 kernel module including a patch from James Whitlock for some threading issues. Note that w1 seems to be broken in recent linux kernels

I second this. The current version is now 2.8p21
There is also a bug that is a real show-stopper for me. I'm using and i can't change the PIO states of a DS2406. It works fine from a computer using a later version.
