Equake Xfce

Equake Xfce is a panel plugin for the Xfce panel which monitors earthquakes and displays an update each time a new earthquake occurs. In addition, it can show alerts when heavy earthquakes have happened, display maps and webpages with more information, produce lists of hourly and daily earthquakes, and update a handy signature file you can use in your email messages. Many features are user-configurable.

    Release Notes: Quite a few noticeable changes were made. This release added a display of earthquakes of the past seven days, map links to last hour/day/week windows, local time in addition to UTC for earthquake events, improved processing of the date and time, various minor fixes, and a code cleanup.

      Release Notes: The highlight of this release is the migration to the new data feed provided by the USGS site. The older data feed has been deprecated by the USGS and may be phased out soon. When that happens, older versions of equake will stop working. Other changes include a bugfix in data processing loops, a NULL test for atof() statements, the removal of a stray sprintf() statement in favour of snprintf(), and a patch to allow compilation on FreeBSD using clang.
