Version 3.1.2
by Jonathan S. Earle on Feb 24, 2007
[ This version is not available. You might be able to get it by asking on the "squirrelmail-plugins" mailing list or by contacting the author. ]

Version 3.1.0
by Jonathan S. Earle on Nov 12, 2006
[ This version is not available. You might be able to get it by asking on the "squirrelmail-plugins" mailing list or by contacting the author. ]
Requires: SquirrelMail 1.4.x (and probably 1.5.x) (Tested on 1.4.8)

Description:
  • Fixed bug that prevented plugin from working on IE. Last minute code change worked on Firefox (my main browser) and I neglected to run a final test on IE before releasing the plugin. Doh!
  • Updated stylesheet to format weather watches and watches/warnings that have ended.
  • Improved bilingualism of plugin to include the configuration page.
  • Saved settings will now be highlighted in config page.
  • Allow users who do not have Javascript to directly enter the EC region code for the plugin. To use, navigate to the weather page for your city/region on EC's website (weatheroffice.ec.gc.ca) and copy/paste the code into the text entry field on the plugin config page. The code can be determined from the URL thusly: http://weatheroffice.ec.gc.ca/forecast/city_e.html?on-118&unit=m


Version 3.0.0
by Jonathan S. Earle on Oct 30, 2006
[ This version is not available. You might be able to get it by asking on the "squirrelmail-plugins" mailing list or by contacting the author. ]
Requires: SquirrelMail 1.4.x (Tested on 1.4.7)

Description:
  • Complete rewrite! Environment Canada changed their site (completely) and so the old code wouldn't work at all. Needed a useful config tool but that means that Javascript must be enabled. No workaround at this time other than manually entering the region code into the user.pref file.
  • Tested with squirrelmail 1.4.7... might need a tweak for 1.5.x.
  • IE stylesheet not yet created .. subsequent release will address.
  • Weather is bilingual!
  • Weather displays using either metric or imperial units.

by Jonathan S. Earle on Oct 20, 2003
[ This version is not available. You might be able to get it by asking on the "squirrelmail-plugins" mailing list or by contacting the author. ]
Requires: SquirrelMail 1.4.x

Description: Fixed problem with SM 1.4.x. Preferences wouldn't save and the plugin wouldn't show onscreen.

This plugin may not work with SM < 1.4.x. Use v2.2.1 for SM 1.2.x.

[ This version is not available. You might be able to get it by asking on the "squirrelmail-plugins" mailing list or by contacting the author. ]
