Package: xfce4-weather-plugin
Version: 0.7.4-5 (wheezy)
Severity: wishlist

Dear Maintainer,

I'd like to see a version of xfce4-weather-plugin 0.7.4-5 migrated to xfce4 >= 4.10 (Jessie and Sid)
because quite often the local weather info from version 0.8.3-1 is not correct.
See also ubuntu bug report 'Incorrect temperature (off by 10° F)'

This is probably an issue with the different data feed of both versions,
v.0.8.3-1 gets its data from www.yr.no which doesn't seem to be true 'local' data
while v.0.7.4-5 retrieves its data from your local weather station through weather.com.

I have written a modified version of xfce4-weather-plugin 0.7.4-5 for xfce4 >= 4.10
with the following improvements:
- Weather plugin for xfce4-panel >= 4.10
- Location detection based on geoip.xfce.org
- Added  'Set Location by IP' button
- Added up to 10 forecast days (default = 5)
- Tooltip showing  local weather report

This version is free software!

Added two attachments: source and deb package xfce4-weather-plugin-0.7.4-5-jvw.
