I am happy to announce the release of v1.03.3 of Equake XFCE panel plugin.

The most important change in this release is the migration to the new 
data feed the USGS site provides. The older data feed has been 
deprecated by the USGS and will soon be phased out. When that happens 
all older versions will stop working.

Note that the new data feed, even though it's supposed to be stable, is 
kind of in flux. With changes being added without any announcements (or 
delayed) or actual changes to the spec description on the site. That 
being said, any recent changes didn't cause problems, however if 
something messes up, that could be a likely culprit.

Other changes include a patch submitted by Olivier Duchateau to alow 
compilation on FreeBSD, a small bugfix to the data processing loops, 
replaced a stray sprintf() statement with snprintf() and addition of a 
NULL test to the atof() statements.

Or (soon):

About "equake": Equake pulls data about earthquakes and displays it in 
interesting ways.

Thank you,

P.S.: I am unsure how to get this added to the "xfce goodies". Any in 
formation about this would be welcome.
