I really like Sky Widget of jsharkey, unfortunatly, It doesn't works ouside from US.
I modified it from available sources to support Google Weather Internationnal and different language.
Free/unlocked versions : original code comes from jeffrey sharkey, it was distributed under Apache licence. This licence allow developers to use code for commercial or non commercial use (such as WebSphere based on Apache). I worked A LOT on this widget more than 300h. This is the reason why i fell free to create this new distribution.
Since v2.0.0, free version limitations are no skins, no geolocation refresh, and no manual update. So, you have to pay 0.99€ (on market) to get access to those functions.
[b]For people having trouble to buy this app on Google Market, or simply people who doesn't have access to pay market, I have published my applications on SlideMe market :
**Mod edit - link removed**
This widget is designed for Android Cupcake (1.5) and upper versions.
I have opened a blog for main access point for people wanting informations about the widget : http://koxx3.wordpress.com/2009/07/13/introduction/

Ideas trash :
- CAL : update on calandar events added/deleted
>>>> not possible with current API
- add better full size background skins support in landscape...
>>>> everybody doesn't care about landscape view. And it will add a lot of code to manage it.
- make a full unlocked app (and not a unlock key), to avoid keeping 2 softwares.
>>>> too complicated to split identical code to 2 different application since Android market use package name as ID
- try to animate widget (not details panel, but widget on desktop)
>>>> difficult and nobody asked for it
