Release EDDiscovery - Journals, Exploration, Trading, Voice Recognition/Speech, Star Maps, Webserver

EDIT 27May21 - Got confirmation from Paul at EDDB/EDDN that this was an internal issue and has been fixed at EDDN/EDDB - leaving the post just in case anyone saw something similar and had questions.
Seeing some odd behaviour with the new settlements. EDDiscovery is the only thing I have syncing with EDDN (along with Inara and EDSM). When I land at one of the new Odyssey settlements I am seeing this pattern the last couple of days. It was adding the new settlements correctly but now it adds them as unknown.

looks like the initial setup at the 36 secs mark is correct except for the pad type (landed with a medium ship), then I open the market (21 secs) and then something??? sends an update at 21 secs that has incorrect information but gets the pad type correct. I confirmed I am not running EDMC etc. I do have the CAPI set. I see this in some systems when I first visit - i.e. settlements under the unknown heading - so it looks like it is just not my configuration. CAPI issue? EDDN issue? EDDiscovery issue?

EDIT - I disabled CAPI, INARA and EDSM syncing. If I just land then it send the right data but as soon as I pull market data EDDB gets the market data and then another update at the same time with changes that are incorrect but looking at the message that gets sent there is nothing about blackmarket, pad, refuel etc. I checked both the CAPI (after re-enabled) and the EDD messages and they only have commodities listed so looks like an internal EDDB issue?

With that little info provided by you it's nearly impossible to say anything about it.

He's provided the version number, that's all we need;

He is in fact running the latest release available for download!

So I've got a bit of a problem. Running version .It has stopped updating since 07/06/2021 20:28:22. Any suggestions how to fix this most welcome.

I think the only solution is to wait until the next release is available.
Further info. Logged in this morning and the reported issue was still present. Switched to my non Odyssey alt account and found ED Discovery to be working normally for that commander. Switched back to Odyssey account and selected the appropriate commander in ED Discovery and after a minute or so it updated to the current location. This error was in the log which may relevant as Slatus was the location where it stopped updating
INARA Reports: Error to request setCommanderShip {"eventName":"setCommanderShip","eventTimestamp":"2021-06-07T19:28:22Z","eventData":{"shipType":"ExplorationSuit_Class3","shipGameID":-1967295,"isCurrentShip":true,"isHot":false,"starsystemName":"Slatus"}} with Unknown ship type.

Nope cancel that. Further testing it's still not updating in Odyssey. Using the same account I switched back to Horizons and as soon as the game loaded ED Discovery logged the start up messages BUT it has no record of the last few hours of play. So it would seem it's not just failing to update the display, it's flat out not even reading the log.

Dug a bit deeper, there doesn't seem to be Journal for the periods in question. Weird.

o7 Commanders,

On 6/19/3307 at 5:22:56 PM in-game time EDDiscovery stopped updating ED:Odyssey activity.

My most recent EDD startup has not seemed to recover from this.

I am unsure where to go or what to do from here. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

EDIT: I am running version

Please let me know if there is any other information I can provide to assist with this and if I should report this as an issue on the GitHub page.

Thank you in advance.

UPDATE: I performed yet another file verification through the game launcher this evening and it appears that ED:O stopped logging data. After the verification EDD started tracking my activity again. Sigh! Please disregard all of the above.
