We now have backported the current 0.9.0 release from upstream Debian for the test repository.

This is an XFCE panel widget to monitor the weather outside your window, or in many other locations.
You must log out and back in for the new version to start appearing in the panel. Improvements include:

- Port to GTK+ 3
- Preferences dialog ported to Glade
- Replaced individual header includes
- Replaced deprecated symbols
- Replaced direct access with accessor functions
- Improved forecast background with dark and light themes
- Improved spacing in the preference and forecast dialogs
- Added small (3px) padding between weather icon and scrollbox
- Fixed full debug builds
- Port to libsoup 2.42
- Updated build requirements:
- gtk+-3.0 3.22.0+
- gthread-2.0 2.42.0+
- glib-2.0 2.42.0+
- libxfce4util-1.0 4.12.0+
- libxfce4ui-2 4.12.0+
- libxfce4panel-2.0 4.12.0+
- libsoup-2.4 2.42.0+
- Use HTTPS where possible
- Translation updates: Albanian, Belarusian, Bulgarian, Catalan,
Chinese (China), Croatian, Danish, Dutch, French, Galician, Hebrew,
Hungarian, Italian, Korean, Lithuanian, Polish, Portuguese (Brazil),
Russian, Serbian, Swedish, Turkish


Please let us know how it installs and performs if you give it a try. Thanks!

Do I have to remove the old one from the panel first, or?
