    Hi all,

    Just released 4cast 1.63:

    - Added auto-update in background.
    - Added various information display, including text forecasts.
    - Added support for ZLauncher plugin (download plugin at www.shsh.com/plugins/4cast.htm).

    Thanks !

    Your link for the plugin is not working for me...can you verify if it is correct?

    Works great.

    Enhancement suggestion: Is it possible for 4cast, when used as a plugin in 2day, to work completely in the background?

    This means that it would not wake up the Treo or switch away from 2day when updating on schedule. Also, I would be able to put the cursor on the 4cast plugin bar (in 2day) and type a keystroke (menu-U ?) for a manual update, 4cast would update in the background (keeping 2day on the screen) and display the latest values in 2day.

    I may be overreaching, as the architecture of Palm OS may not allow such background operation (not being multitasking like Windows). But it never hurts to ask :-)

    Hi,

    Sorry - fixed the link.

    Regarding the background suggestions - these may be possible, but hard to implement, and may be even garder to stabilize.

    I'm just afraid I dont have the resources right now to dive into such an endavour...

    Sorry.

    I love the Zlauncher plugIn. This is just what I needed. I have a few suggestions:
    -Could you make the icon smaller? On the Treo it looks huge. Maybe 3/4 of that would be nice.
    -Could you add an option to change the font color. My background is dark and it gets lost in it.

    Thanks,

    Al

    In the Zlauncher4Cast plug preferences there is a show option that has an icon Checkbox. That icon shows on the launcher pretty big. I don't know if you could resize it and make it a bit smaller because it looks huge on the Treo.

    Thanks,

    Shimon,

    I also see that some of the options for the Zlauncher plug-in don't seem to work like:
    Icon: Doesn't seem to hide the weather icon if unchecked.
    Rotate all: doesn't seem to work either
    More Info: that's probably working but I don't see anything for Modesto

    Let me know,

    Those are options for 2day plugin...

    More Info is an option for 4cast itself - you can scroll to a text forecast of each day.

    This is how mine looks like:

    -As you can see the I could use a white font or something else so I can actually see the weather.
    -The moon icon seems to be huge compared to the other icons. Maybe if you include an optoin to make the weather icon smaller it would be nice.
    -There is an overlap between the forcast and the icon. I guess if the icon was smaller it would fit better. Or maybe moving the icon more to the right.

    It is a great start though. I love it.

    Thanks,

    Al

    How does 4cast pick the time at which it does it's scheduled updates?

    I have set it for hourly updates. Will it try every 60 minutes from the last update, manual or automatic? If I do a manual update, will that affect the scheduled times for future hourly updates?

    Hi,

    Manual updates do not affect it - if you set it to every 60 min. then it will be set when you press OK at that preferences page.

    What happens if 4cast is unable to connect (networking issues, Radio is off)? I think the hourly scheduled time changes in that case.

    I think it should stay the same.

    About the Zlauncher4Cast plug-in. Any updates coming soon? I don't know if it is just me, but it seems to slow down Zlauncher when used in conjunction with the ZlauncherToday plug-in.
