Just as an aside, I have removed support for the deviantART bbcode when posting. This called a Flash-based widget on the deviantART site, and no, Flash is as dead as the Passenger Pigeon. Most modern browsers will fight you tooth and nail to even enable it.

Hopefully they will come up with some more safe and modern approach to inline linking to submission previews.

Since wxdata has been deprecated in January, and the Weather skin of this suite used that service, I have to rewrite the appropriate skin, as many (well, for now most of them) authors have rewritten their weather skins. I am working with it and it practically is more or less finished, but the skin and the appropriate Settings are quite complex, so rewriting and (double-) testing everything takes a lot of time (which I have too little).
Soon will be released, I hope. Stay tuned, if interested.

Finally finished rewriting and testing the Weather skin. I also identified a few other issues, which also have been fixed. I fixed the followings:
  • Rewrote the Weather skin, to get it working with weather.com
  • Fixed some issues on Calendar / TodayEvent
  • Added indication of Today event / Every year event / Holiday on Calendar, when it's the case for current day
  • Fixed the missing thousands and decimal separator substitution according to the current language, into the Mirage\Process\Process.ini skin
  • Added current operation confirmation message in Mirage\Power\Power.ini
  • Rewrote the Settings.ini skin, to get it working with weather.com and make the appropriate settings for the above skins
Added the download link to the first post of this topic.

The newest version (1.2) of the suite is available in the first post of this topic.
The things which have been fixed this time:
  • Added current operation confirmation message in Mirage\Power\Power.ini.
  • Rewrote the Weather.ini skin to use the Weather.com website V3 JSON data to provide weather information.
  • Rewrote the Settings.ini skin, to get it working with above, new version of Weather skin.
  • Added the Mirage\SunMoon\SkyChart\SkyChart.ini skin, to show the current sky chart, through the Mirage\SunMoon\sunMoon.ini skin.
  • Added the Mirage\Games\EggHunt\EggHunt.ini game.
  • Removed the Mirage\Settings\Browse\Browse.ini skin, which has been replaced by the FileChoose.dll plugin.
  • Added Solstices and Equinoxes calcualtions to the Mirage\SunMoon\SunMoon.ini and Mirage\Calendar\DayMonth.ini skins (through lua codes).
  • Some other minor fixes.
After a discussion here on Rainmeter forum, I realized that for instance virustotal.com indicates some viruses into the package. The culprit is the included NirCmd.exe addon. I can assure everyone, it has no viruses, it is absolutely safe to use it. Locally ran antivirus doesn't indicate virus at all in the package (checked with Eset InternetSecurity 14.0.22.0). For the next release I'm gonna try to completely get rid of this addon.
