Hello! My name is Shawn and I have produced the Weather Plasmoid for KDE 4. Over the last few weeks, I have been busy making major progress on the Weather Plasmoid, with more changes coming thoughout this month and into the next.
Whilst the Weather Plasmoid will not rival the famous LiquidWeather SuperKaramba applet in the KDE 4.0 timeframe, it should at least rival the KWeather Kicker applet of KDE 3.
If you use imperial instead of metric for your measurements (as set centrally in your KDE configuration), the Weather Plasmoid will display the data in imperial units instead. The measurement of winds in meters per second is not yet functional in the applet but the weather ions (data sources) support this.
With this being my first KDE program, I hope to contribute more for the community and encourage people to send me ideas and possible features for the Weather Plasmoid too!
