Please visit [link] to have a look at what is offered in the Premium version or donate now by following this [link]

To cycle through the locations, simply click on the square dots at the bottom of the dialog. The first one will always be the local weather.

- Choose to update from every hour up to every six hours.

- Five day, extended forecast.

*This application requires version 4.0 of the .net Framework. Please make sure this is installed before running this application.

Update log: - June 06, 2011

- Fixed issue with images not appearing. Now includes the correct images for weather conditions. - June 06, 2011

- Now using World Weather Online for grabbing weather information. This should hopefully be a more stable API and won't be subject to the changes seen with Google's weather API.

- Added Premium version. A donation of at least 2 dollars will unlock this version. Donations can be at the following link: [link]

Please be sure to enter the email address you'd like the serial code to be sent to when making the donation.

- The basic version now only supports 1 additional location. The premium version will support an unlimited amount of locations and will provide extended details for the current condition.

- Added night images for all weather conditions. - May 31, 2011

- Fixed crash if added location is not valid. There is no notification other than invalid locations will not be added to the list.

- Added 'Auto startup with Windows' feature.

- Due to popular demand, added 'Override default temperature unit'. When enabled, you'll be able to manually choose which unit of measurement (Celsius / Fahrenheit) Forecaster uses. - May 30, 2011

- Fixed possible crash when changing forecast location while Forecaster is updating forecasts.

- Fixed crash while updating forecasts if network connection is lost / not available.

- Fixed possible crash if current condition information is not available.

- Fixed bug where previously removed locations would re-appear after adding a new location.

- Fixed bug where previous additional locations would re-appear when all locations were removed.

- Fixed bug where the degree symbol was shown twice in the system tray's tooltip.

- Changed the Celsius / Fahrenheit abbreviation from "c / f" to "C / F".

- Added 'Select multiple locations' to remove in the setting window.

- Added 'Hit enter to add location' in the "Add location" and "Add local location" dialogs.

*I'm sure there's possibly some more fixes / additions but I can't think of them at the moment.

For those that have previously downloaded version, you should have received the update notification via Forecaster already. - May 29, 2011

This is a very big update and I really hope I've fix as many bugs that were reported as I could without adding any new ones.

- Fixed 'XML error' that occurs with non-English characters. You should now be able to add cities that have accented letters like Nürtingen and Châteaudun for example.

- Fixed 'Text longer than 64 characters' error

- Fixed possible crashing when using basic theme on Windows 7.

- Fixed settings window not saving / using the 'Set update interval' feature.

- Fixed bug when deleting a city in the 'Additional locations' tab.

- Fixed crash when not connected to the internet. It will now let you know if there is an error when updating.

- Added tooltip when the mouse hovers over a page indicator.

- Added balloon notification when weather conditions change. Enable 'Show notifications when conditions change' in the settings window.

- Moved some elements around for more of a Metro look.

- Forecaster will now automatically use Celsius in countries that use metric.*

*Please let me know if this works as I can't necessarily test this thoroughly. - Initial release. Probably has a few bugs but should be working mostly.

Please email any bugs reports to with 'Forecaster - Bug Report' in the subject line.
