Where is the 64bit link?
Edit: I responded with this question couple of minutes after your post. Sorry.
Wow, fantastic job. This is the best weather plugin available. Graphics are fantastic and the build quality is amazing. No hoops to go through to install, no 2 foot front-end to configure location. Everything is right there in VMC.

Works great in 64bit.
Just installed the 64-bit version - it looks fantastic!
Very nice job on the smooth animations between the screens. Just a couple of requests/suggestions:
If I add a location by zip code, I'd like a way to be able to hide the zip code from the location name (so it just shows the city). It might be nice to just be able to edit the location name - I know there are some very small town areas that probably won't show up properly, so it would be nice to be able to add a nearby city and name it the small town that you are in - this would also let you hide the zip code simply by editing the location name.
Another request, and this may be outside the relm of what you want to do, but it might be neat to be able to select the days from the forcast and bring up more details about the selected day - perhaps have it swap with the "CURRRENTLY" info.
Simple. Elegant. Fluid. Works as advertised.
Great job, this is everything a plugin should be. I like the subtle animations, and the transparent overlay is awesome!
If your taking requests, the only one I would think would be great is a button to link to a weather map (either static or animated) for each location. Like a "page 2" of information, only viewed when desired.
