Hi Matty,

Here's an update on how the new WXSVR performed during the weekend 
severe wx situation. This is with xastir.

The ALERT for flooding worked just fine and an object appeared in 
affected wx regions. Bushfire objects are appearing but I'm not seeing 
the boundaries. The fires so far have been small, but one current fire 
between Kempsey and Port Macquarie is large enough (10ha) to display 
boundaries on the NSW RFS "fires near me" web page. Xastir was zoomed in 
considerably more than the fires near me page. Coastal wind warnings 
appear to not be functioning correctly, however. This part of the coast 
(Macquarie and Coffs coasts) was under strong wind warning over the 
weekend but I didn't see any ALERT zones. I did occasionally see the 
wind warning object display but on each occasion it disappeared fairly 

It's great to be able to see some warnings again, and thanks once more 
for your efforts.
