  - Fix adjusting label text size to panel size.
  - Fix scrollbox scroll direction in vertical mode.
  - Major rewrite: Migrate to API instead of
    The plugin now uses data from the Norwegian Meteorological
    Institute, which is a bit different and forced a redesign of
    the summary window and more logic for computing the values.
    This rewrite means the hassle with the expiring license keys is
    finally gone, and the plugin shouldn't stop working suddenly,
    as API changes are announced quite some time before they become
    active. Forecasts for up to 10 days are provided, depending on
    the location. The location is defined by latitude and
    longitude, the actual name is only used for presentation.

    has stopped working correctly quite some time ago.
  - Automatically set system of measurement depending on the GeoIP
    country code.

  - Enlarge the search dialog. It's now capable of showing 10 or
    more results instead of only 2 or 3.
  - Nice error message in summary window when no location was set
    or when there's no data available.
  - Make left click toggle the forecast window.
  - Optimized update intervals (downloading data and presentation).
    This should also fix update issues after suspend/resume.
  - Add move label up/down buttons to config dialog.
  - Add shortcuts to the widgets in the config dialog.
  - Add shortcuts for accessing the notebook pages in the forecast
