AWIPS 17.1.1-6

Unidata AWIPS 17.1.1-6 is a minor release with the following changes:

  • WarnGen bug fixes: for practice sessions, the WarnGen app no longer uses JMS to send/verify messages between client and server, instead sending the generated message directly to a TextWS window for editing, keeping everything client-side.
  • postgis update to 2.4.4 to fix segfault signal 11 when WarnGen requests EDEX PostgreSQL to create coverage area geometries.
  • geos update to 3.6.2.
  • gdal update to 2.2.4.
  • proj update to 5.1.0.
  • postgresql and psql update to 9.5.13 to account for new versions of postgis, gdal, and proj, and to remove the geos dependency.
  • shapely update to 1.6.4 after geos dep update to 3.6.2.
  • NCP Resource Manager cleanup of unused resources (Linux only).
  • Removed NSHARP D2D dependency on PGEN shapes.
