Package: xfce4-weather-plugin
Version: 0.8.3-1
Severity: important
Tags: upstream

Dear Maintainer,

due to the crippled functionality of v7.4-5 in Wheezy I am using the
version 0.8.3-1~bpo70+1 from wheezy-backports. However since a few days
the old API stopped working and thus the applet does not receive/display
any forecast data.

The situation is already discussed upstream:

and a patch available. This patch has been applied in Debians version
0.8.3-2 in Sid and I confirmed that it solves the issue. The Jessie
version 0.8.3-1 does show the same problem, while updating to 0.8.3-2
solves it.

I kindly ask for applying that patch(es) also to Wheezy-backport to have
weather forecast available again.

Unfortunately I am not able to compile the Sid-Sources for Wheezy (which
worked fine for 0.8.3-1 over a year ago).
