Reviving the Weather Wizard Applet

It needs to be signed (to be trusted)..., but give it a try: here (in full), or below (in small).

This demonstrates a small subset of the features of the Weather Wizard. There is no GRIB, no routing, no possibility to save anything.
But that gives you a taste of the possibilities.

The applet is signed. That means it wants to get out of the Sun sandbox. Namely, it wants to read the faxes from an external website.
Once you have selected your composite (from the top drop-down list), do not forget to hit the "Go" button...

Released today the version of the Weather Wizard, the Navigation Desktop, and the Polar Smoother.
The release includes some bug fixes, cosmetic improvements, and a decomposition of the deviation curve (in the NMEA Console), as shown below.

And with the NMEA re-broadcast, the Navigation Console works like a charm with OpenCPN 3.1.1328.
