Recent Events Concerning Unidata's TDS

On Friday, March 28, 2014 the Unidata Program Center (UPC) updated the demonstration THREDDS Data Server (TDS) running on thredds.ucar.edu to version 4.5 of the TDS software. After encountering some issues with the updated version, including problems with community members' IDV bundles not loading as expected from thredds.ucar.edu, UPC staff reverted the demonstration server to version 4.3 on April 1st.

UPC staff had became aware that TDS version 4.3 running on thredds.ucar.edu was not keeping some dataset indices up to date automatically. This situation required manual intervention by UPC staff to keep the indices updated, which, coupled with changes in UPC security procedures following the intrusion on February 20, 2014, increased the urgency of releasing a new TDS version that fixed the problem. After internal testing convinced us that TDS version 4.5 was functioning properly, we followed the normal procedure of updating UPC servers (specifically thredds.ucar.edu) before releasing the package to other sites. This staged release process normally allows us to find and fix "real world" issues that are not caught by internal testing.

LDM 6.11.7 Released

Version 6.11.7 of the LDM has been released. It fixes a bug that caused the NOAAPORT ingest component to crash.

Here's the story:

The NOAAPORT Satellite Broadcast System contains a lot of GRIB-2 messages. Such messages require external tables in order to be interpreted. The NOAAPORT ingest component of the LDM uses the tables that come with GEMPAK to interpret GRIB-2 messages in order to generate meaningful LDM product-identifiers. Unfortunately, not all tables are complete and creators of GRIB-2 messages are free to add data for which no corresponding table-entry exists.
