It looks like they now deny access to clients with no API key, which
was the case for our weather plugin until recently. 0.6.3 is the first
version where I've added more compliance to their EULA, and 0.6.3 or
greater works.

Nice timing, from my point of view: I commited that less than one month

Packagers will have to either update to 0.6.3 or 0.7.0 (I'd suggest
0.7.0) or just get the patch from SVN:
