Hi All,

 Has anyone noticed that the weather data service is NOT working. This is an item you can add in the panel manager. What's up ?

I can only confirm that it is not working for me either on the xfce panel. Couldn't tell you why though.

Yes it is not working since about 3 days.
In the meantime I switched back to 'Grabweather'

Further, I just opened my gnome-panel and on that the weather-applet is working.

I do not have the weather-applet on my xfce4-panel instead I use the ROX
weather free standing and it is not working.

ATTENTION Attention: The folks at weather.com have upgraded their platform in July 2009 to make the API key mandatory. It wasn’t required previously (apart in writing), and the Weather plugin didn’t implement that before 0.6.3. You’ll need version 0.6.3 or more recent to make the Weather plugin work again.

I have packaged xfce4-weather-plugin-0.6.3 for VL-6.0 and uploaded it tonight it should show up in the testing repository in a few days.
enjoy,
