Catfood Weather 2.20

Updated on Wednesday, February 22, 2017

Catfood Weather 2.20

Catfood Weather 2.20 fixes a problem with the forecast failing to update (the National Weather Service changed the URL of the web service that Catfood Weather uses and while they were kind enough to put a redirect in place it was a form of redirect that didn't play nicely with WebClient so a patch is needed).

In addition this release should fix the ignore alerts feature. It's one of those cases that after not having looked at the code for a couple of years I suddenly realized that the implementation was fatally flawed (bordering on idiotic) and could never have worked. Should be better now.

Catfood Earth 3.40

Updated on Wednesday, February 22, 2017

Catfood Earth 3.40

I've just released Catfood Earth 3.40 for Windows and 1.50 for Android.

Both updates fix a problem with the clouds layer not updating. The Android update also adds compatibility for Android 5 / Lollipop.

Also, Catfood Earth for Android is now free. I had been charging $0.99 for the Android version but I've reached the conclusion that I'm never going to retire based on this (or even buy more than a couple of beers) so it's not worth the hassle. Catfood Earth for Windows has been free since 3.20.

Enjoy!
