IMPORTANT NOTE: This is a major version number release and requires the purchase of a new license. However, if you purchased a license of WorldClock and/or the WorldClock Screen Saver on or after January 1st, 2020, you are entitled to a free update. Please email me your proof-of-purchase (a copy of the original email you received from me when you purchased the license) and I will send you update instructions.

15.apr.2020 WorldClock Screen Saver Version Update.

Fixes a bug in the screen saver version of WorldClock that did not execute the new weather provider switch-over on initial setup.

To get this update, just download the same file (with the same password) as you originally did when you registered and then re-install.

27.jan.2020 WorldClock Version Update.
WorldClock Screen Saver Version Update.

The major reason for this release is that the old weather service has been discontinued and so, with this release, WorldClock has moved to a new weather service.

Other improvements:

  • Greatly improved support for multi-monitor displays
  • Fixed taskbar clock scaling for Windows 10
  • Added a second icon set for the weather display
Note that the new weather service has a different way of specifying your location; as such, I have had to reset your location. After you install this update please go to the preferences and re-enter your desired location.

PLEASE NOTE that this is a free update for WorldClock users who have purchased version 5.x of WorldClock or version 6.x of the WorldClock Screen Saver. If so, then you should have received an email from me after you purchased WorldClock containing download instructions. Simply click on the download link in this email to download the zip file (which now contains this update). Use the password (also in my email) to open this zip file and then run the setup program contained therein.

Users with older versions will need to upgrade in order to get this release.

LAST MINUTE BUG: If you downloaded and installed the initial release of this update (the version number ended in '0') there was a bug that was introduced at the last minute. Please download and install the new release that has been uploaded to the server. My apologies for the inconvenience.
