    Since about 2 weeks ago I noticed that mine no longer showed forecasts or maps, accompanied by a error in weather notification.
    Apparently the licence with weather.com expired.
    To get it working again ( for how long nobody knows) do the following:

    Check out that link. The license the applet was using is expired. So I created a new one I have no idea how long it will last.

    Change line 606 from
    Code:
    __ws_key = "&prod=xoap&par=1048871467&key=12daac2f3a67cb39&link=xoap"
    to
    Code:
    __ws_key = "&prod=xoap&par=1287722164&key=e11ec82daa20d876"
    in /usr/share/avant-window-navigator/applets/weather/weather.py and restart avant.

    Edit: I am sure this works for awn 4.0 as well - it had the same problem.
