\f2\i\b0 \cf0 June 4, 2004\
Meteorologist is changing....
\f0\i0\b \

\f3\fs28 \cf2 This pre-release alpha build of Meteorologist is not for regular users.  It is only for advanced users.  I offer no support for problems encountered with this software.
\f1\b0\fs36 \cf0 \ul \ulc0 \

\f0\b\fs24 \ulnone \
Developers wanted!
\f1\b0 \
Please stop by the Meteo website and give a post if your interested in helping out.
\f0\b \
As an alpha tester:
\f1\b0   \
Make a
\f1\b0 backup of your preferences file (at 
\f4 /Users/<yourname>/Library/Preferences/heat.meteo.plist
\f1 ) before running the program.  Preference files modified by 2.0a2 are not compatible with version 1.4.x of Meteorologist.  I've included a "double-clickable" file called "
\f4 meteo_prefs_back.command
\f1 " which creates a backup by executing the following command:
\f4\fs20 cp ~/Library/Preferences/com.heat.meteo.plist ~/Library/Preferences/com.heat.meteo1_4_x_backup.plist
\f5\fs24 \

\f1 \

\f0\b Please test, specifically the following:
\f1\b0 \
- The GUI and different preference configurations, noticing any inconsistencies or problems.
\f0\b \
System Requirements:  \

\f1\b0 Mac OS X v10.2 - (
\f2\i If you are running 10.2 and Meteorologist does not work for you, please post the contents of your 
\f4 ~/Library/Logs/Meteo.log
\f2\i  file on the Meteorologist website.
