That is just awesome to hear.  I think martin really summed it up well in his review:
"Recommendation
If you want a lightweight program that provides you with excellent forecasts and all the information you can possibly want, then sWeather is the first of this list that you should take for a test ride.
While it may be too bare bones for some, it makes up for that with low memory usage and being portable."

Weather app's can get really elaborate (and often beautiful), but many of us are interested in something lightweight, clean, efficient, ELEGANT, and free of ads, and sWeather just rocks for that.

Congratulations, skwire  thumbs up

ghacks today (8/24) has a review of 9 desktop weather apps and Martin gives sWeather the top recommendation.

Thanks for the heads up, Mike.  =]

Thanks, mouser.  sWeather is a favourite of mine (are we allowed to have our own apps as favs?   tongue) and it's rather humbling to see it get that kind of recognition.

When I enable the 5 day extended forecast and turn on the "Show dates in extended forecast" It is displaying the incorrect dates. The date for each day are one day forward, example, as I type this post it is Fri 28th Nov 2014 but sWeather is displaying Fri 29th (see attached screenshot)

It's as if the date is incrementing but the name of day is not doing so until quite a bit later.

 Thmbsup Based on the recommendation in GHacker, I have installed sWeather. I agree that for a low footprint/high content application your software is hard to beat. Count me in for a donation after I futz around with it awhile. Many thanks -- all of my former "go to" weather applications got smashed when their RSS feeds were changed or became too costly. If you have a Beta program, sign me up.

Hi, Gadgetman496 & kevlar_heart42, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.   smiley

It's as if the date is incrementing but the name of day is not doing so until quite a bit later.

I've noticed this as well at times and, like you mention, it happens if the RSS feed is late/incorrect.  Fixing it might be a bit tricky but I'll see what I can do.

Thank you for the kind words and donation.  They're much appreciated.  There is no official beta program, but I do sometimes release early builds that are announced on this thread.

v1.5.4 - 2014-12-15
    + Added 'Feels like' temp to the tray tooltip.  (Thanks, Ken Z.)
    ! Hopefully fixed a long-standing bug with the temperature icon not
      displaying the correct temperature.  This had to do with the fact that
      Windows 7, at least, does not appear to like 1-bit colour icons in the
      tray.  Crazy...

Very cool. Because I am a bit dense (and new), is there a way to update sWeather without unzipping the file again to its directory?

No, there is not.
