UPDATE 2: Now at 2.2, since adding code to fetch the METAR using fsockopen() for users whose webservers do not permit remote file() or fopen(). This should solve a lot of those "Cannot connect to NWS..." issues I hear about from time to time.
UPDATE: It looks like the time localisation thingie is a 'go', so I've upped the rev level to 2.1. I've integrated Orlando's Portugese translation file also, and it is available as a separate download. The readme has been updated also, with instructions on enabling translation files as well as contributing new ones.
The long-awaited, anticipated by thousands, update to my little weather plug-in is now available for download. I've upped the rev level to 2.0 cos I went to the mat adding localised language support. It always kinda bugged me that the output was only in English, and me living in a by-golly-lingual country. So now it'll say if it's raining wherever in French, if you want. (Scroll down the sidebar to see the report for Halifax. Hoo, touch me!)
Now, as my nearest and dearest are painfully aware, especially after putting up with me last night, I do not speak French. Not by a long shot. Hell, I can barely spell it. (f, r, a, n, funny-lookin' c, a, i, s, what'd I leave out? Must be something.) But between an old dictionary of Nola's, babelfish and flipping back and forth between the "French" and "English" buttons on various Environment Canada weather forecast sites, I don't think it's too godawful a translation. It probably is, though. I don't care. It works. I proved a concept, goddammit.
Because several files changed when moving functions from them into the language files, even upgraders are advised to just download the whole thing. Please do take note of the changes to the instructions for configuring weatherreport.php and setting your language of choice, as well as the changes to headings display. It's all in the readme. I'm hoping it makes sense. It's a hell of a lot easier to do than to explain.
