===Improved 3D Clouds===
Stuart Buchanan has been working on improving the 3D clouds. This has involved a change in the XML format, as well as various tweaks to the low level OpenGL shader code that generates the clouds themselves.
Particular functional improvements include better distribution of clouds across the sky (no more obvious grids) and better modelling of stratus clouds.
Hopefully by the time this is published, the work will be in CVS.
