Weather Watcher 5.6.26

Posted on Monday, April 28 2008 @ 13:28:18 CEST by

Weather Watcher is your personal Windows desktop weather station. Automatically retrieve the current conditions, hourly forecast, daily forecast, and detailed forecast as reported by The Weather Channel, severe weather alerts from NWS (US only), and weather maps for over 77,000 cities world-wide. The current conditions can be quickly viewed by holding your mouse pointer over the Weather Watcher system tray icon.

Changelog:
  • ADDED: 200+ new weather maps.

  • ADDED: "General" --> "Store user files in the Weather Watcher program folder" option. If this option is not checked (it's unchecked by default), Weather Watcher will store all working files in the current user's Windows profile.

  • ADDED: "Map Manager" button in the "Maps" tab of the Weather Watcher Options window.

  • ADDED: Map Manager button to check/uncheck all listed maps.

  • CHANGED: When using the INI option (-i or -id command line parameters), WW will store the INI files in the Weather Watcher install folder (default = C:/Program Files/Weather Watcher).

  • CHANGED: Added quotes to the Weather Watcher program registry path -- used when Weather Watcher is set to start with Windows. This should prevent the Weather Watcher program folder from opening when Windows starts.

  • CHANGED: The animated wallpaper option is now disabled in the "Wallpaper" Weather Watcher Options window tab for Windows Vista users. Windows Vista does not include the Active Desktop feature, so animated map images cannot be displayed as wallpaper.

  • CHANGED: Remove 1-4 minute intervales from the "Forecast Auto Update Rate" dropdown in the "Auto Update" tab of the Weather Watcher Options window.

  • CHANGED: When using the double-click action in the "Tray Icon" tab of the Weather Watcher Options window, Weather Watcher will use the native Windows double-click speed to detect double-clicks.

  • FIXED: Updated Weather Watcher downloader (GetFile.exe) to URL encode proxy username and password. This will allow proxy usernames and passwords to contain non-alpha and non-numeric characters (e.g. p@ssword).

  • FIXED: Updated various window control colors -- some of the controls were hard to read when different Windows themes were used.

  • FIXED: On weather updates, data from outdated servers will no longer be downloaded. This will resolve the issue where the weather data flips backs to a previous time.

  • FIXED: "Print.." and "Print Preview..." menu links were not always enabled when the main Weather Watcher window was visible.

  • FIXED: Font list was not loading into the "Tray Icon" tab of the Weather Watcher Options window.

  • FIXED: On weather updates, data from outdated servers will no longer be downloaded. This will resolve the issue where the weather data flips backs to a previous time.

  • FIXED: The daily forecast was not displaying the correct wind direction night value.

  • FIXED: Formatting of the last observed/downloaded date at the bottom of the forecasts.

  • FIXED: Updated tab order for all Weather Watcher windows -- now tabs from top to bottom.
