What’s New v2.0

-The background color on the main weather view now indicates whether it is day/twilight/night .
-Links for GOES-16 Satellite take you directly to the Band 9 water vapor animations.
-Other water vapor improvements including fix for missing “< Back” button.

What’s New v1.12

-The main Xasteria weather service (7Timer!) will now be more reliable, as a brand new Xasteria-funded US-based server is up and running. This version tries that mirror first.

What’s New v1.11

-The 7Timer! service that Xasteria uses will be down for technical reasons. The 7Timer! people are sending their apologies, it is unfortunately an issue beyond their direct control.
