We have rolled a new release (0.2.5) which is now bundled with the LGPL.
The important feature added in this release is the ability to pass a connection timeout in milliseconds to Weather.getMetar(). This allows some control over how long you care to wait for data to come back from the server before giving up. Connections to download weather data are now handled via the Apache commons-httpclient library.

jWeather now licensed under the LGPL. The reason for the change is simple...some people want to use jWeather, but not make their software available under the GPL. The GPL is great, however the LGPL allows many more people to use jWeather while still keeping changes to the library itself open for everyone.
That said, of course all versions up to and including 0.2.4 will still be available under the GPL...we can't change that. However, all versions starting with 0.2.5 will be available under the LGPL. If someone really wants to get a version of jWeather before 0.2.5 licensed under the LGPL, let us know. All project contributors have given their okay for the change and so it is done. Expect to see 0.2.5 here shortly with a couple of fixes to boot.

After a long lul in development, 0.2.4 is here. There is a lot still to be done, but please test and provide feeback, bug reports, etc. This release contains mostly fixes for International tokens that appear in METARs.

This is a minor update that mostly fixes bugs related to METAR tokens used by many non-US weather reporting stations. A few other important bug fixes were also made. See the Changelog for the full list of changes.

Restructured jweather a bit and fixed several bugs. It appears that interest in using jweather is increasing and I am receiving feedback, patches, etc. Thanks to you who have helped out and to those who have told me of your using jweather. Good to see free stuff being used and made better.

I know that there have been several downloads of jweather and I would like to ask all who have found it useful (or not) to please give feedback. Submit bugs, issues, suggestions, etc. so that jweather can be improved upon and become more useful.
And of course, if there are any developers who would like to help program, designers who would like to help create weather graphics, etc...let me know!
Thanks in advance for your help.

A small step towards what will hopefully become a decent weather parsing library. This release parses METAR data and provides access to a subset of the data that may exist in a report.
