Soundprofile: Version 1.0: : 2019-11-18

Initial version

Textforecast: Version 1.6 deprecated, 2019-09-02

As mentioned on the mailing list, the aviation forecasts (aw_* and iga_*) have been moved to a separate product aviationforecast. Since the other forecasts (land and sea) have been reeimplemented in textforecast/2.0, version 1.6 will shortly be discontinued (planned date 2019-10-01).

Tafmetar: Better date handling features: 2019-08-13

Since the previous version could only deliver data for UTC calender dates, we have added an offset parameter to enable you to get data for midnight to midnight local time. E.g. date=2019-08-13&offset=+02:00 will new get you data from 2019-08-12T22:00:00 to 2019-08-13T22:00:00 UTC.

Also, you can now drop the date parameter completely, in which case you will get data for the last 24 hours (which is usually exactly what you want).

Routeforecast: New vcross route: 2019-05-14

No further changes planned, product considered stable and can be used in production.

Aviationforecast: aviation text forecasts moved to separate product, 2019-04-24

Since textforecast version 1.6 is deprecated and will be removed soon, we have moved the aerodrome and IGA forecasts to a separate product. This will enable them to keep stable while the other text forecasts are in the process of being updated to 2.0 standard.

Routeforecast: New products, back to beta: 2019-04-04

Type Wave has been replaced with a similar but more precise product helicoptersignificantwaveheight (existing requests will be redirected). In addition two other new products have been added, helicopterlightningobservations and helicoptertriggeredlightningindex.

Due to constantly changing requirements we have added back the beta status for routeforecasts. Further changes may be expected, we do not recommend using this service in production environments unless in cooperation with MET Norway. We suggest subscribing to the Changelog RSS feed to be informed about further developments.

Volcanicashforecast: Version 0.1: 2019-03-27

First prototype

Sunrise: More data for version 2.0: 2019-03-14

moonposition is now repeated for every day in the interval, not just the first day. We have also added a phase attribute to moonposition to show the moon phase for each day, not just the first. Max days is now set to 15.

Since there are only additions to the existing format we assume keeping the existing version is more convenient than bumping so that everyone will have to modify their existing clients.

Routeforecast: Version 1.0: 2019-03-01

New version released, with new products seasurfacetemperature and temperature2m. No longer in beta status.

Textforecast: New version 2.0, 2019-03-01

So far the ocean, seabank and seahigh products have been upgraded to 2.0. We have also launched a new landoverview product which will replace the land and landmerge products, as well as the textlocation service.

We expect to discontinue 1.6 late 2019, while removing disused products (mainly aviation forecasts) continously in collaboration with existing users.

Textforecast: land and seaoslofjord forecasts removed, 2019-03-01

Production of the "land" forecast will stop on March 1st, 2019, and will be removed as a valid parameter value.

Radar: 2019-07-01: New radar Hafjell, hack for missing animations
    Old name                    New name
    -------------------------   ---------------
    rainrate_with_phase_tma     fir_preciptype
    reflectivity_tma            (discontinued)
    reflectivity                5level_reflectivity
    reflectivity_hires          reflectivity
    rainrate_with_phase         preciptype
    lightning                   lx_reflectivity

Hafjell has been added for types lightning, reflectivity_hires and rainrate_with_phase.

Unfortunately, due to increased server load and shorter production cycles we have not been able to re-enable production of the animations for reflectivity_hires, rainrate_with_phase and most lightning radars. As a workaround, we will be substituting reflectivity_hires and rainrate_with_phase animations with the closest matching reflectivity animation. Similarly, all lightning radarsites will now return the "norway" animation. None of these will appear in the available lists, and are used solely to avoid breaking existing code.

Static images will be delivered as normal, which will not match the animation in content and dimensions. This means you should not use the "small" images as thumbnails for the animations until further notice.

We are working on replacements for the missing lightning animations, as well as a new, improved Radar product version which should be more user-friendly.

Radar: 2019-06-19: update of v1.5

Radars now produce images every 5 minutes (instead of every 7.5).

Animations are currently only available for reflectivity, xband and lightning (as per the documentation). The undocumented reflectivity_hires animation is now discontinued.

The little-used sizes "large" and "medium" have been discontinued, any requests for these will return "normal" instead. Also, animations are now only available in "normal", use a static image for thumbnails instead of "small".

For a list of allowed options, see /radaroptions (experimental).
