Only 32-bit versions are released. You may need to install appropriate 32-bit versions of system libraries to run on 64-bit versions of Linux.

Newest version:
Added Power field in time schedules (enforced mode).
Relay outputs with assigned 3f mode have now working Prepend mode.
24.5.2017: Fixed problem with time schedules: relays sometimes did not work in enforced mode
24.5.2017: Fixed problem in web interface: one day was skipped when changing time to daylight saving time

4. version:
Added PWM control mode for external outputs (SSR1 and SSR2).
With PWM control mode it is now possible to control heat pumps and air conditioners proportionally. These must be externally controllable with an input 0-10V. For more info about this function see section Frequently asked questions at the bottom.
Added function Prepend. This function replaces the old Instant Relay Switchover function and allows to define the function for each output independently.
Added function Inverted. This function replaces the old Inverted Output function and allows to define the function for each output independently.
Fixed frequent crashes of WATTconfig for Android.
