Glucose Development Corp.
has released an update to its weather tracking software for Mac OS X, WeatherPop and WeatherPop Advance. The new version improves performance and reliability, according to the developer.

With WeatherPop Advance installed, you can keep track of weather in your area and elsewhere using the National Weather Service. (International users are also supported using the my.aol.com and wunderground.com services.) The freeware version, WeatherPop, tracks weather specifically in the US via the National Weather Service only.
The new 1.6.3 version now employs multi-threading, which Glucose claims “vastly improves” the retrieval and parsing of data for all locations at the same time. What’s more, the update also retries requests to the National Weather Service to reduce the number of data retrieval failures and “hiccups.”
WeatherPop is available for download; WeatherPop Advance costs US$8 to register, and is available as a 14 day demo.
