1.0 Release Notes
Integrated Data Viewer
Version 5.4

The items below reflect changes since the 5.3 release.


1.0 System Changes

1.1. Java Version 1.8

Migrated the IDV to Java 8 u51. Because of a Windows 10 related bug on some older Intel hardware, the latest version of Java will not be deploying with the IDV.


1.2. Latest netCDF-Java Version

The version of the netCDF-Java library currently distributed with the IDV is the 4.6.10. This is a bug fix release. See the netCDF-Java Library for a more details information.


2.0 Display Changes

2.1. Grid 3D Trajectories

The new grid 3D trajectory is based on the VisAD library enhancements. The Grid 3D trajectory includes 3D Grid Trajectory, 3D Grid Trajectory colored by speed, and Trajectory colored by another parameter. By default, the initial area of 3D trajectory is the whole domain of the dataset, and the user could choose one of the option: points, closed polygon, and rectangle to setup the initial area.


2.2. Grid 3D Trajectory Types

In addition to the traditional line trajecory display, ribbon, cylinder, deform ribbon and point are added as new trajectory dispaly types in this release.


3.0 ISL Changes

3.1. Changing the bounding box in ISL

The new attribute of ISL bundle tag will load an existing bundle and change the coverage region dynamically.


3.2. Changing driver times in ISL

The new attribute of ISL bundle tag will load an existing bundle and change the driver times of the bundle.


3.3. Saving a ZIDV in ISL

The new attribute of ISL export tag will save the dsipaly area data in the zidv bundle file in an offscreen mode.

4.1. Bug Fixes

We fixed a few bugs associated with the time matching in this release. One of the bug is the excessive loading of data in the bundle when there is a derived of derived parameters. The another bug fixed is in the 3D grid trajectory display in which the time subset information not correctly saved in the bundle.
