MorphOS: yWeather.sbar 1.14
Thomas Igracki's screenbar module yWeather "shows the current weather informations for a selected location". It is used with Ambient and gets its weather data from Yahoo. The default location is Berlin/Germany which you can change in the screenbar settings. You can also change the unit of the temperature to Celsius or Fahrenheit.

Changes Version 1.12:
  • Chg: Don't eat RMB over my sbar
  • Fix: Crash if you remove the sbar while trying to download weather infos
  • Chg: add the inputhandler after first successful download
  • Chg: if downloading of weather infos failed, try again after 10 seconds,
    if it fails 5 times in a row, deactivate auto-update!
    You have to left-click on the sbar to activate it again!
    Offline will be recognized and displayed
  • New: Recognize if yahoo sends no weather data, then "Yahoo error!" will be displayed
  • Fix: don't show the all-info-bubble, if there was no successful download!
  • Chg: If the conversion of the yahoo date failed, display the original date instead the localized22 in the bubble
    Dates like this "Mon, 28 Mar 2016 12:00 AM CEST" fail, because of the "12:xx AM"
  • New: New strings to localize: msgDeactivated, msgOffline, msgYahooError

Changes Version 1.13:
  • Chg: Display "Update check..." in the sbar, if you press middle mouse button
  • Chg: The required icons are now located in Sys:Data/Screenbar/yWeather/ instead of Sys:Data/yWeather/
  • New: Added a simple installation script

Changes Version 1.14:
  • Fix: Wind-speed was always 0.00 [reported by jPV, 29-Mar-16]
  • Fix: the units for wind speed, chill, visibility and pressure were missing
  • New: added a version string in the all-info-bubble

Alexander Fritsch (ANF)

Voice output: speak-handler 39.1
Alexander 'selco' Fritsch has written a new speak-handler which is a replacement for the original one available on the Workbench disks starting with version 2.1. It is a new development and not a patch.

The new speak-handler can simultaneously use (experimentally) different versions of the translator.library and of the narrator.device. (In this way it is possible to use the retro sound of the old narrator.device provided by AmigaOS 1.3 as well as the modern sound of the device provided by AmigaOS 2.0.)

AROS: Odyssey Web Browser 1.25 beta (version 26.03.2016)
Krzysztof 'Deadwood' Śmiechowicz' latest update of beta version 1.25 of Odyssey allows loading Google-spreadsheet and working with other of those applications (Draw, Drive etc. - partly some of them may need spoofing). Besides, the support of WebWorker was re-enabled and the internal threading support was changed to the POSIX-threads library of AROS. The diskcache now correctly works, so you can clean your it.
