Latest version of France chart

I assume that SD follow what is published by the various national authorities on their paper charts so I wonder if that is the reason why SD now has GAFOR border lines around Paris & Normandy where the reference altitude is so low? Personally I find this just adds to the general clutter and would prefer it to be removed.

GAFOR are forecast areas in France. They are also used in other countries in Europe. They are a useful way of getting a quick update for the weather over a large area. If you don't want to see them and benefit from this information, you can turn them off from the Weather menu.
