Lately I was upgrading to OS 2.5.0 which uses E+ 8.9. When I try to run one of my models which use to run smoothly in OS 2.4.0 it failed with the following massage:

Program Version,EnergyPlus, Version 8.9.0-eba93e8e1b, YMD=2018.05.07 20:08,
   ** Severe  ** <root>[Schedule:Day:Interval][2BHDO Default][interpolate_to_timestep] - "yes" - Failed to match against any enum values.
   **  Fatal  ** Errors occurred on processing input file. Preceding condition(s) cause termination.

I am changing the Schedule:Day:Interval's interpolate_to_timestep property to yes with a measure I wrote since OS will not expose it.

Since it is a Yes or yes enum issue I would guess it will affect many other things. Has anyone experienced such a warning?

For EnergyPlus 8.9.0 the options for the "Interpolate to Timestep" fields changed to "Average", "Linear" and "No". Here is full description. Basically, "Yes" was replaced with "Average" to describe it better since it is not interpolating in the classical sense.

@JasonGlazer I was still using the 8.8.0 documentation.
