Thank you!

One thing: Wind Run (in German "Windmenge") shows 0.0 km although it is 24.x at the moment.

Thanks for improving the app!

"Windmenge" - got it! Thanks for pointing that out. It will be changed in the next release.

Don't know why the discrepancy in the Windmenge values. It's straight from the WeatherCat Server client data.  If you see any consistent pattern, please let me know.

OK, there is something wrong with the Client - does anybody else see this?
(Client shows 0.0 Wind Run, Gauges shows the correct value)

I've only been looking at the WC Client and the Weather Station Gauges since Reinhard brought up his problem. Mine seem to be working normally. At first, they did not agree exactly, but after a few cycles, they now all match up.

I do see that the "Wind Run pointer (it seems to be the same thing as the "Calculate Live Wind Run Vector" on the "Weather Station Gauges") occasionally over runs the edge of the gauge.

Frankly, I'll have to read "The Manual" to figure out why there are two different apps/displays of the same info and which is useful for what. I assume the "Weather Station Gauges" is the one that can be inserted in ones web site? I suppose the Client could be running on any machine on the Network. I've just never used them for anything after seeing the gauges WC can create on its own. I doubt I'm saving any work load for the mini running WC, however. [rolleyes2]

Hi Grand,

just noticed that the App cannot handle special characters in Current Conditions (in my case it is "ö").

Cheers,
Reinhard

Good spotting. Makes a mess of it, doesn't it? It will be fixed in the next update.  [cheers1]

 :)

For all other ä ö ü are displayed correct this one is not the killer.  :D
And the only ö in current conditions on my side is >Stark bewölkt< which means something like >Heavy Clouds<. It was coincidence that I noticed it...

Cheers,
Reinhard
