Not long ago I've written that OpenWeatherMap crippled its 2.1 version API
by returning data for the same city no matter what the request was. Now it looks that OWM
has completely killed off the 2.1 API
endpoints in favour of its (paid) 2.5 version
of the API
When you try to access a 2.1 endpoint
, you're presented with a '502 Bad Gateway'
So long 2.1
, it's been nice knowing you!
This puts some pressure on me to update jPhotoFrame
to use the 2.5 endpoints
, which means using a different library and some code rewrite. I hope to do it this week.
By the way I looked but could not find an official announcement from OWM about discontinuation of the 2.1 version of their API. I guess they did it quietly without a care that existing projects will be broken.
Update: jPhoto frame is now using OWM 2.5 APIs
