LXPanel 0.10.0 and some others…

Last month a big update have happened but lasted unannounced until now, being forgotten. But at least it isn’t forgotten forever. So… version 0.10.0 was released. You may think, if second number changes that would mean there were some improvements made. And you are completely right, there are few! First of all, weather plugin was reworked and uses another weather provider, that was needed since Yahoo! Weather disabled their free support, so OpenWeatherMap is used now as we get in agreement with them about open-source plan, and support for some other provider may be added later, and BTW, feel free to add it. Also pager plugin was a bit improved to support scroll wheel over it.

In near the same time there were few minor updates for other LXDE applications such as LXSession, LXRandr and LXTask. Not much changes though, only bug fixes and translations updates.
