libgeo-metar-perl (1.14-3) unstable; urgency=low
* Applied final version of Timo Hietanen's patch (Closes: #262397)
- also grabs the altimeter setting if it's reported in hectopascals (Q\d\d\d\d instead of A\d\d\d\d)
- dont's set $self->{MOD} to "AUTO" by default
- tries a bit harder not to mix up weather groups with station identifiers
- recognizes the visibility setting "CAVOK" (ceiling and visibility OK)
* Time Hietanen also submitted a fix to clean up code warnings (Closes: #181407)
- Doesn't recognize the METAR tag dddVddd (d = digit), which defines wind direction's variation.
- Assumes that station ID begins with the letter 'K' (matches /K[A-Z]{3,3}/), while it should match /[A-Z]{4,4}/
- Tries to find the visibility information even though $self->{visibility} isn't defined (information missing from the METAR report). This leads to a couple of warnings about uninitalized variables. 
* Updated test suite to use Test::More instead of Test
