Wow, great work! Smile
They finally allowed us to use their api!
This must be much more stable and speedy than Weather+.

If you use geolocation then please make this selectable - automatic could mess up a lot of locations!

of course, you can still set up your locations like you're used to.
only if you don't select any location, the addon will fallback to geoip.

I'm installing Dharma version (I'm still fighting in order to correctly use all the HTPC components)... which one do I have to install in order to have weather functionalities? And what are the cons?

It won't work in Dharma. It will only work in the latest nightlies (Eden) version.

I have the Eden Pre-build (love it so far!) and I have configured weather to my city via zip code just fine. Works great except for one thing - My Wife and son have no idea about Celsius. The walked into my office from the living room all Shocked and I was all Wink till i couldnt figure it out and now I am all Huh. How do I enable Fahrenheit so this makes sense to them?

whether you get C or F depends on this setting:

The plugin seems to be not fully compatible with translations. Most strings are taken from the main strings.xml as they should, but others like some wind directions and weather descriptions are taken from God knows where.

For example:

3rd and 4th rows show "Chance of" in Russian translation. I've worked on corrected/updated Russian translation and I'm sure that I haven't missed anything - those strings are not in the main strings.xml or in Confluence skin or even in the plugin's own strings.xml.
