Since Meteo's lead developer is currently busy and has little time to work on the program, a huge problem – the inability to search for and add new cities – has remained unfixed for a fairly long time. While there currently is no "official" fix to the problem, a member of the Meteo user community has come forward with a small "patching" application that will allow the search function to work again.
You can find this utility, called "Fix Meteorologist," at http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/24171. The Meteo team does not endorse this patch in any way, but we wanted to publicize it so that users (especially new ones) can use the app and not just give up on it (since it was essentially impossible to add new cities). A special thanks goes out to Diamond Software for coming up with the patch and making it available.
Some new screenshots have been posted online for those of you who want to see what you're getting before you download it.
In addition, an Intel-native build (Universal Binary) is in the works. If you'd like to help out with this effort, please let us know!
If you have submitted a bug at some point, we also ask you to check its status and close it if the problem has gone away or been otherwise resolved. Thanks!
The Meteo team is proud to announce a new stable release - version 1.4.4; it includes the following fixes:
- Fixed city search for many U.S., Canadian, European, and Australian cities (Thanks to Laurent Daudelin for providing a fix)
- Fixed a crash during first startup
- Now contains partial localizations in German and French
