Version Released, Adds Twitter Support

by Alex Kuretz on February 22, 2011

We’re pleased to announce the release of Remote Notification This update delivers functionality that allows your server to post Windows Home Server health notifications to a Twitter feed, either as status updates or as direct messages to another Twitter user. The Twitter recipient is highly customizable just like the other recipient types, allowing you to choose to receive errors and/or warnings, and to configure exclude filters for those notifications that you’d rather not see.

Upgrading to version is easy. Simply uninstall your current version of Remote Notification, and install the newest version downloaded from here. Setup instructions are available in the documentation section to walk you through the configuration of your Twitter recipient.

The full list of changes in the release include:

  • Add Twitter recipient type that supports both Twitter status updates as well as direct (private) messages
  • Explicitly set text color in HTML email reports so they render properly on OLED smart phones that invert colors to save battery power (thanks Jeff Z.)
  • Minor changes to improve error handling and logging

Thank you for using Remote Notification, we look forward to hearing how you like the new features.
