[Xfce-i18n] xfce4-weather-plugin string freeze

Dear translators,

The next version (0.8.3) of the weather plugin is nearing its release, 
and I'm hereby announcing string freeze. Strings will not be changed 
anymore except if someone reports a bug about spelling mistakes, 
conflicting hotkeys or similar, and only within the next three weeks. 
Release is planned in a month or so.

There are quite a lot of new strings and a pretty awful number of 
tooltips to translate which can get really tedious, so I recommend you 
ignore those first and concentrate on the more exposed widgets of the 
configuration dialog and summary window.

NEWS contains the release notes. This version is quite a rewrite, even 
more than 0.8.2 was, with many fixes and lots of additional 
functionality. I hope 0.8.3 will be a lot better, though it still 
doesn't fix that problematic timezone stuff. While everything works fine 
here - that means no crashes nor malfunctions so far - it's always wise 
to expect the unexpected, so I'd be grateful for any bugs reported 
before the release.

If you want to build the plugin for translation work and verification, 
instructions are pretty simple and can be found in the README. There are 
some strings like the tooltips of the forecast cells that will need some 
trial-and-error to get the alignment right; just use as many \t (tabs) 
as you deem necessary to make the layout look good.

Please note that 0.8.2 is actually unsupported because it's gradually 
falling apart, so better don't spend any more time on it.
