Their latest version (0.2.0c) was published in October 2005.

station using memory map function calls to retrieve the data.
Looking at the program package and the text files within, it seems
that the program is completely ported from Linux version, making it's
installation that more uncomfortable. It is consisting of many
.exe-files, some are to be run periodically from the Scheduled Tasks,
some are meant to be run all the time. All configuration is done via
single .conf-file and the program is designed to create a web page via
PHP so if you want to view the current weather data, you will need a
web server of your own (Apache 2.0 preferred). It can produce
graphical displays similar to WU and CWOP and it has a log writing
capability, but no ability to make currdat.lst/history.dat files so
you can forget using HeavyWeather Publisher or WUHU.

there's a risk of mistake that can effectively kill the display unit.
They need to do more - much more before I feel safe enough to switch
from HW/HWP/WUHU to Open3600.
Unfortunately, making it easier to use and install is not on their

- I downloaded the open3600 code. It looks like they have it working. I will
try it soon. Pretty impressive. It also looks like they derived this from a
prior WS2310 version.

I think the best thing to do at this point is to wait and see how much
progress the open3600 software development makes.
It sounds like they are able to extract data from the unit.
Unfortunetly, I do not own one, so that will really limit my testing
