SLICK program.   :Thmbsup:
I added some locations where other people I know live, works fine.
ONLY complaint is that when I click for a "forecast", it always comes up at my location.
That's probably because I have "location" enabled, and Yahoo! forecasts aren't being called with proper arguments.

Running 1.5.5 - there's something wrong with 'future' forecast dates - see image. 

Not sure, but this may be a result of upgrade to Windows 10, I think it was OK in Windows 7.

Added : :-[ I see this has been previously reported, and it seems it maybe be a problem with yahoo

Did a disk clean up - no change

Great program! Ran into an issue with weather for Djibouti. There are multiple locations for the place, and all displayed NA, they're however shown on Yahoo.

Hi, jwb7605 & shawnboy99, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.   :D

SLICK program.   :Thmbsup:
I added some locations where other people I know live, works fine.
ONLY complaint is that when I click for a "forecast", it always comes up at my location.
That's probably because I have "location" enabled, and Yahoo! forecasts aren't being called with proper arguments.

Apologies for the late reply.   :-[  I have confirmed this and I will fix it.

Great program! Ran into an issue with weather for Djibouti. There are multiple locations for the place, and all displayed NA, they're however shown on Yahoo. 

For whatever reason, it looks like the Yahoo Weather API entries for Djibouti are not working:

http://weather.yahoo...recastrss?w=23424797
http://weather.yahoo...orecastrss?w=2345158
http://weather.yahoo...orecastrss?w=1310941

Compare that to Codyville, Maine, for instance:

http://weather.yahoo...orecastrss?w=2382514

Unfortunately, there isn't much I'm going to be able to do about this.   :(

Hello there... FIRST POST..... W7-64 here.

A little History....  For Years and Years I've used Weather Pulse and loved it.  I stuck with them during the 'no data' times, and then it came back....
And now it seems to have died altogether....  It will be missed....

So for past week I've been using Sweather, and I think I've finally found something worthy of replacing Weather Pulse...

I do have a question about the future of the program....   

One of the things I loved about Weather Pulse was the individualized (per location) Radar Loop...    Is there any chance that this option may evolve in a later version of Sweather?

I can see a donation to you folks for this program!   Thanks!!!

Hi, JanJ, and welcome to the DonationCoder website.   :Thmbsup:  Thank you for taking the time to post.

Agreed.  WeatherPulse was my favourite weather app back in the day.

One of the things I loved about Weather Pulse was the individualized (per location) Radar Loop...    Is there any chance that this option may evolve in a later version of Sweather?

I liked that as well.  Unfortunately, the Yahoo Weather API does not offer anything similar.

I can see a donation to you folks for this program!   Thanks!!!

Donations are always welcome.  Thanks for the consideration.   :)

Skwire I am a disabled person  I am using Windows 10 when I enable the 10  day extended forecast and turn on the "Show dates in extended forecast" It is displaying the incorrect dates. The date for each day are three day forward, example, as I type this post it is Sun  29th Feb 2016 but sWeather should be displaying Sun 1 (see attached screenshot)

It's as if the date is incrementing but the name of day is not doing so what is the fix please get back to me

I do find that the Yahoo weather service that sWeather is using, is quite flakey, again. :'(
When I tried the 10 day forecast, it didn't even show data for day 6 - 10, so I went back to my default of 5 days forecast. :o

As I said in reply to your PM, I'm not the developer of sWeather, just a user. Please have a little patience with us, we're all volunteers on a free forum, providing free software and services, and a lot of us have a job and/or a life besides the forum :tellme:

@Ath: FWIW, the 10-day forecast data is working fine for the locations I keep.  If you want to share the location you're having issues with, I can at least verify it's not an sWeather problem.

@sportman12: I appreciate your interest in sWeather but, as Ath stated, please have some patience.  I do try, but I'm not always able to respond to posts and PMs.  I travel a lot for my regular day job (sometimes weeks in a row) and I write these applications in my spare time.  Please understand that there really is no need to keep sending PMs to me or other users.

v1.5.6 - 2016-02-29
    * Changed timezone data source to the Time Zone DB at http://timezonedb.com
      Titlebar location times should be accurate again.
    ! Fixed off-by-one date in the extended forecasts (Thanks, sportman12)

Hm, for me that's not actually the case, it was displaying correctly before, but now it's off by one:

Screenshot - 29-02-2016 , 11_26_30.pngRelease: sWeather (tray-based weather app)

And day 6-10 are not shown. For any pre-configured location I've tried.

Except for the issues I reported above, but the empty 6-10'th forecast also was in the previous version. Most likely a Yahoo issue, IMHO.

And do you close the old version snd install the new version ?
You will have to, as Windows won't allow you to overwrite a running executable.

Now that I'm at home and have updated sWeather, it is showing day 6-10 here (probably a networking issue at work, again :(), but the dates in the forecast are off by 1 day, as reported before. Maybe related to time-zone? I'm at GMT+1.

Ath, are all your locations off by one?  Also, would you be okay with sharing your config.ini and locations.lst with me?
