- supports warning notification by email (including a mail test)
- different iconsets

V0.39
- dwd changed their site again: colors and color names

========================================================

ATTENTION:

THIS IS A QUICK AND DIRTY HACK ONLY.

THIS IS THE LAST UPDATE! First of all I don't have the time to do this any longer. And then is KDE4 coming more and more (even I don't like it)
With it comes plasma and this superkaramba theme should be transfered to plasma. But I have no time left for this.

So I'm looking for people who can and want to get this project and keep it running.
Send a mail and you've got a job to do.

========================================================

V0.38
- dwd changed their web site and so I changed the server to www.wettergefahren.de.

V0.32
- Filter an unused link in the received html-file
- The GUI for configuration is ready finally (test it)
This is based on PyKDE and QT3. I could need some help for
porting it QT4. Could also need some help to get the GUI translated.

V0.21
- The frame gets the color of the warning level.
- The most severe warning gives the framecolor and severity text.
- README file is corrected and updated

V0.10
- Display the severity of the weather warning.
- some code cleanup
- now available: Nordseegebiete und Ostseegebiete

V0.07
- The gossip level are now available in a dropdown box.
- The version is shown in the icon.

V0.05
- Running the .skz archive and changing an iconset stole the chance to make any more changes with the configure menu. (Bugfix)
- The actual version number of dwd is now shown in the help window
- A new menu entry 'Visit the project page for voting' is on.

V0.04
- corrected bug in setting gossiplevel
- corrected bug in handling click on 'NEW'
- no available as .skz-archive

V0.02
- Tooltip for the 'help icon'
- Tooltip for the 'new Version' info
- Tooltip for the star (asterisk) on the left top
- Within the iconsets the frame and the weather symbol have been splitted into two files. And we've got a background graphic in each iconset. Customizing is now a bit easier and more flexible.

Hmm, I wasn't quite as noob as I thought, it seems that when I chose
extract-> Extract to 30079-dwd-0.21.skz
in the kde service menu,it f***s up and says it's not possible. I if just extract it directly there is no prob...
Why is it that the files are called *.skz instead of just plain .zip which would make a lot more sence...

You need Superkaramba 0.37-RC1 to use .skz file.

Otherwise, since .skz files are just ZIP archives, you can extract the content of the SKZ file into a folder and choose the .theme file within Superkaramba to launch it.

For you 1st question, I guess SKZ stands for SuperKaramba Zipped (or something like that).

If you run superkaramba prior to 0.37 you have to manually unzip your .skz file:

$ mkdir my_dir
$ cd my_dir
$ unzip /path/to/file.skz

and you're done.

Launch SK0.36 and select the .theme file maybe it'll work (maybe not :).
