Changes in Conkyforecast after upgrade

As I show in the screenshot in this post, I had Conky working fine in Ubuntu 11.04 including weather conditions.
However, the last couple of days, after I had done a routine Ubuntu upgrade, the weather section no longer showed up.
The problem was that this line in .conkyrc

${execpi 1800 conkyForecast --location=ABCDEFGH --template=/usr/share/conkyforecast/example/conkyForecast.template}

refers to a file, conkyForecast.template, which is no longer available in /usr/share/conkyforecast/example.
Instead this folder now contains the following files:

So, I substituted the missing file in the above .conkyrc line with conkyForecast.fontbasedtemplate.template and that put everything right.
Actually, I haven't yet tried the file conkyForecast.imagebasedtemplate.template but an image-based weather report sounds exciting.
