Dear Harald,

First of all, congratulations and kudos!
This release has some educational value.

* I think that Celsius is more common than Celcius (I am not sure).
* What is the difference between "International knots (kt)" to "knots"?

I will complete my translation today or tomorrow's night.

> 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.
