  • Due to changes in the Yahoo! weather API, we have switched to using
    libgweather.
    This brings with it several interface changes:
    • Instead of using WOEID or ZIP Code to determine your location, we
      now use latitude and longitude. You may (optionally) use
      GeoClue
      to find this information in the preferences GUI by clicking the
      "Find Coords" button.
    • Since libgweather uses icons that follow the
      XDG Icon Naming Specification,
      we have renamed our icons accordingly (and deleted several which
      would never appear as they did not correspond with any of the names
      in the specification). You may also use any other icon themes which
      follow this specification using the --icondir command-line
      option, the icondir option in the configuration file, or by
      clicking the "Icon directory" button in the preferences GUI.
  • You may now run wmforecast in windowed mode (i.e., not as a dockapp)
    using the --windowed command-line option.

  • New Yahoo! API gives us bad xml pretty frequently, which was causing
    frequent segfaults. We display an error instead.
  • If we get an error, we try again in 1 minute.
  • If we manually refresh the display, the countdown to the next automatic
    refresh is reset to the default interval. (Previously, if it was set to
    refresh every 60 minutes and we manually refreshed it after 10 minutes,
    it would refresh again after 50 minutes. Now it will refresh again after
    60 minutes.)

  • New feature!
    • You may change the background or text colors either using the command line
      (-b or --background for background, -t or --text for text), or by using the
      preferences GUI.
  • The configuration file has been moved to the GNUstep Defaults directory
    (likely ~/GNUstep/Defaults/wmforecast -- note this is the same directory as
    the Window Maker configuration files). You may also store system-wide
    configuration in, e.g., /etc/GNUstep/Defaults/wmforecast. This move takes
    advantage of several built-in WINGs functions.
