February 6 2010   Meteo problems and fixes
The latest release of Meteo no longer works for updating weather data, as weather.com has changed their page layout again.

However, fellow Meteo user edwardd20 has come to the rescue! He has been working on a beta which fixes these and some other issues. You can find release information and more details on the relevant Help forum thread (note that the newest posts are at the end).

Please note that as always, the Meteo team does not endorse this beta version in any way, but we wanted to publicize it so that users (especially new ones) can use the app and not just give up on it.

September 6 2007   Meteo 1.4.8
Just days after the 1.4.7 release, a new release is out to fix the menubar icon bug.

If anyone is interested in either updating a localization of Meteo, or adding a new localization, please contact Joe at joecrow "@" users "dot" source forge "dot" net.

Changes:

27 May 2007   New Release Soon
We're working on a new fix for city search. Please stay tuned for a new release.

14 March 2007   City search broken, fixes
Since Meteo's lead developer is currently busy and has little time to work on the program, a huge problem – the inability to search for and add new cities – has remained unfixed for a fairly long time. While there currently is no "official" fix to the problem, a member of the Meteo user community has come forward with a small "patching" application that will allow the search function to work again.

You can find this utility, called Fix Meteorologist, on MacUpdate. The Meteo team does not endorse this patch in any way, but we wanted to publicize it so that users (especially new ones) can use the app and not just give up on it (since it was essentially impossible to add new cities). A special thanks goes out to Diamond Software for coming up with the patch and making it available.    [ Discuss... ]

9 April 2006   Small updates
Some new screenshots have been posted online for those of you who want to see what you're getting before you download it.

In addition, an Intel-native build (Universal Binary) is in the works. If you'd like to help out with this effort, please let us know!

If you have submitted a bug at some point, we also ask you to check its status and close it if the problem has gone away or been otherwise resolved. Thanks!    [ Discuss... ]

1 October 2005   New release (1.4.4) !
The Meteo team is proud to announce a new stable release - version 1.4.4; it includes the following fixes:

Go ahead and download the release now. Note that there are two different files: one for Jaguar users, and another for Panther and Tiger users. Please be sure to select the file appropriate for your system.    [ Discuss... ]

21 July 2005   Updates from the helm
A couple of things have happened since the last update.
First, another alpha version of the next major release of Meteo, Meteo 2.0a2, was released on June 5th. See the release notes and give it a try - but only if you're feeling adventurous - the version is still littered with numerous bugs.
In addition, it appears that weather.com recently broke the search function for many European cities. The Meteo team will look into this soon to try to resolve the issue.
Lastly, the FAQ has just been updated to include a question about adding radar to your list of weather items. Note that while radar it turned off by default, you can still add it! Just go over to the FAQ and see for yourself.    [ Discuss... ]

1 June 2005   Trackers cleaned up
After some quiet time on the website, lensovet has re-emerged and has undertaken a thorough cleaning of the Bug and Feature Request trackers. If you submitted an item, please visit it to view updated information (if you haven't received an email already).
In addition, we are planning two releases to appear very soon!    [ Discuss... ]

18 February 2005   Website expanded
The webpage has been expanded a bit. I have added the FAQ page, which is a bit nicer than the Doc version at this point. A new navigation box sits on the left side of the page as well.
In addition, a screenshot has been added to the Screenshots section of the SF project area.

6 February 2005   FAQs now available
The much-anticipated FAQ is now available. You can find it in the Docs section of the SourceForge project area. The document will shortly be added to the Meteo homepage and will also become a part of the next Meteo release.
View the FAQs at this page now.

4 February 2005   New version 1.4.3 released
This version of Meteo fixes various problems that have been found in 1.4.2, including the question mark icon bug.

Changes

Download it now.

22 January 2005   We need your questions!
The Meteo team is compiling a FAQ answer page that will be available online and in future releases of Meteo

Please leave us a comment on the forum with any questions you might have.

20 January 2005   New version 1.4.2 released
This version of Meteo fixes various problems that have been found in 1.4.1, including a consistent crash problem.

Changes

Download now from the downloads page.

19 January 2005   Version 1.4.2 soon
Users have been struggling with problems and bugs found in version 1.4.1. Among the problems are crashes and never-ending "Loading..." Menu Items.

Unfortunately, sourceforge.net is down for maintenance so I cannot post 1.4.2 tonight, it will have to wait until tomorrow morning (afternoon GMT). Version 1.4.2 addresses several issues: a situation where the rain icon was displayed during snow flurries, a crash after wakeup from sleep, an interface glitch regarding the enabling/disabling of Global Units, the ability to change the pressure units, and correct conversion of the pressure units to hectopascals.

18 January 2005   Version 1.4.1 released
Meteo is back. Weather.com support is fixed. Plus: I've fixed the Dock, re-enabled automatic updates, and redirected Meteo's debug output to a separate log file.

Download it now.

16 January 2005   New format for weather.com breaks Meteo forecasts
Meteo's data source is weather.com. Weather.com has changed its page again. This change prevents Meteo from parsing and displaying forecasts correctly. Only limited information is displayed (current temperature). The weather.com changes are site-wide and affect all locations and zip codes. Reports from Canadian, European, and US locations confirm the bad news.

Meteo developer joecrow is aware of the problem “...Unfortunately it takes a while to fix it. It's rather frustrating, too...” version 2 was planned to alleviate this problem “...but it's not ready for prime time yet.”

In version 2 it should be very easy to add support for NOAA to Meteo -- though this probably will not help international users.
