This release incorporates a fix resulting from NOAA changing the name of their radar loop server. NOAA's introduction of the radar loop service enables us to improve the reliability of image fetching significantly (although we are still dependent availability of their server), but they recently changed the name of this new server, causing the app to fall back to the 'old' and less reliable method for fetching images. This fix should restore improved reliability.
