The latest Weather Indicator (which we've covered here) 10.07.16 got a lot of changes:
- Extended forecast now displays temperatures with the right unit
- A Nice assistant has been made with an Ubuntu-ish first run mode
- Sunlight/Sunset support with day/night icons
- Autostart. The applet starts automatically on startup so you no longer need to start it manually each time
- The Applet can find your location for you
- Label support
- Many bugfixes
Also, better Ubuntu integration and couchdb support will come very soon.
The application name changed from "weather-indicator" to "indicator-weather" so if you previously installed Weather Indicator, you stopped receiving updates for a while now so you must install the new application.
Install Indicator Weather in Ubuntu
To install Indicator Weather in Ubuntu, simply paste the following commands in a terminal:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:weather-indicator-team/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install indicator-weather
Then you can start the initial setup assistant by going to System > Preferences > Weather Indicator Preferences.
Update January 16, 2011: I've replace the old PPA (which no longer exists) with a new PPA that provides new versions of Weather Indicator!
