Hi Haral,

I´ve found this string:

<tt><small>Middle clouds: %5s%s%s</small></tt>\n

Is this correct %5s%s%s

> messages to translate).
> Now the good news: It seems I've found a rather easy way to fix the
> timezone problems people have been reporting. Instead of doing complicated
> timezone calculations (which I wanted to delay for 0.8.4), I decided to let
> the plugin work in another timezone by simply setting an environment
> variable. This makes it possible to choose any location, and the plugin
> will show all times using the timezone of that location.
> The summary window subtitle now contains the current local time at the
> location, which gives you a good reference for the other times. As a bonus,
> you can use the plugin as a world clock ;-)
> The TZ environment variable should be available in POSIX-compliant
> systems, see
> http://www.gnu.org/software/libc/manual/html_node/TZ-Variable.html.
> Although all my tests on my GNU/Linux system have shown nice results, I
> hope these changes do not break the plugin for users of other systems. If
> no timezone is provided, the plugin will usually fallback to using the
> local timezone, which results in the behaviour we had until now. I found
> that if the entry is invalid, UTC will be used.
> Sorry for breaking string freeze, but I think it is worth it. The upcoming

> problems please file a new bug.
> I have regenerated all po files, but if you have uncommitted translation
> work, please follow the instructions for translators in the README. Also,
> please check your po files before uploading them so they do not break
> compilation. Information how to do this is available in the README, too.
