It is not mentioned in releasednotes but now day/night icons displayed

It is a nice release, thanks!

> Release notes for 0.8.1
> =======================
> This version is mainly a bugfix release for the issues detected in
> 0.8.0, involving a lot of code cleanup and maintenance work. However,
> there are some improvements for the user-side too.
> The most important changes:
> - Show more information in panel plugin tooltip.
> - Tooltip for location name in config dialog now shows latitude and
>    longitude, or clearer instructions what to do.
> - Fetch sunrise/sunset times via webservice; This way we get
>    moon phase, moonrise and moonset for free.
> - Better handling of sanitizing location name.
> - Correct texts in search dialog.
> - Set text color on alternate cells in forecast table (bug #9150).
> - Translation updates.
> - Bump minimum requirements to XFCE-4.6.
> - Build the plugin as a module (bug #9152).
> - Get the plugin working on OpenBSD (bug #9152).
> - Fix many smaller bugs like uninitialized, unused variables etc.
> - Reformat and cleanup source code, improve code quality.
> Thanks to Landry Breuil for his patches for OpenBSD, Guido Berhoerster
> for his help in spotting some previously undetected problems that needed
> fixes, and the translators for their work.
> The description of the plugin has been changed to better reflect that it
> shows forecasts, not live values. Unfortunately, it cannot show live
> values until an acceptable provider has been found. Whether this is even
> necessary has not been decided about yet. If you want to help with this
> or just share your opinion, you are welcome to follow (and participate
> in) the discussions on the general Xfce mailing list. But please read a
> bit up on it first (start here:
> before
> commenting, to get an idea of what has been already discussed. You might
> also go through this page
> for even more information.
> If you have other ideas for improving the plugin or find problems with
> it, please read the TODO first and watch out for known bugs on
>, and if you encounter a new problem please
> post it to the bug tracker or write to the mailing list.
> Enjoy!
