Metro State University in Denver, Colorado will be hosting a Unidata Regional Software
Training Workshop March 8, 2019. Unidata software developers will be leading the one-day
Python-focused workshop, which will cover the use of the MetPy and Siphon packages
in the context of atmospheric science. A basic familiarity with Python is assumed —

AWIPS 18.1.1-5 is a major update to both CAVE and EDEX, including a security update to the latest httpd/mod_wsgi packages.
- EDEX administrators should be aware that localization levels have changed, and Unidata AWIPS no longer supports REGION, DESK, or WORKSTATION levels.
- EDEX administrators should be aware that USER-level localization names have been merged with the WORKSTATION name, that is, what used to be USER awips will now be USER awips@<workstation name>.
- It may be required that EDEX admins migrate saved USER procedures and bundles to the new naming system, which may be tedious, but is necessary for use of CAVE in a classroom and lab setting going forward. This update prevents users from overwriting each other's customizations if they happen to have the same username.
