SP Weather Module Revamped With Joomla 4 Compatibility and Performance Boosts

Good day, Joomlers! How’s the weather where you are today? Sunny? Rainy? Gloomy? Well, no matter what the weather is, it’s going to be a bright and sunny day for the SP Weather Module users out there! Because your favorite lightweight and versatile Joomla weather display module got even better with today’s update.

Let’s find out what this update has in store for you. 

SP Weather Module v4.0 Changelog:

  • New: Joomla 4 beta 7 compatibility
  • Update: Apixu API support dropped
  • Update: Dark Sky API support remains only for existing users
  • Fix: Outdated OpenWeatherMap API URL issue
  • Fix: All known bugs

Joomla 4 Beta 7 Compatibility

Joomla 4 is the HOT topic at the moment! As you know beta 7 was just released a few days ago, we have been working towards making all our products compatible with the version. SP Weather Module is now fully compatible with the newer builds of Joomla. So go ahead and use it with the new Joomla 4 builds to enjoy all the latest features the CMS has to offer.

Apixu API Support Dropped

The Apixu provider now apparently redirects to Weatherstack, which uses a different API. That’s why we have dropped the Apixu API support in SP Weather Module in today’s update.

Dark Sky API Support for Existing Users Only

Dark Sky API is no longer accepting new signups. As per their announcement, their API service for existing customers still remains and will continue to function through the end of 2021.

Some Notable Improvements

SP Weather Module users were having an issue fetching the weather forecasts because of the URL change in the OpenWeatherMap API. We have updated the OpenWeatherMap URL, hopefully, now you can fetch all the weather maps without a hiccup. Apart from this, we have also fixed all other known bugs.

SP Weather Module v4.0 is packed with the latest features and other improvements. So what's the wait? Update your favorite SP Weather Module now to feel the changes. Let us know how it works for you and your valuable feedback in the comments.
