AWIPS Tips: AWIPS 20.3.2-2 Software Release

Welcome back to AWIPS Tips!

We are excited to announce our release of 20.3.2-2 that incorporates many updates and fixes from the 20.3.2-1 release. This release includes installers for CAVE (CentOS7, Windows, VMware Player, and MacOS), and for EDEX (CentOS7).

EDEX Updates

  • Fix syntax error in pqact.conf.priority and pqact.grids
  • Fix regex for satellite data so we don't request duplicate data in pqact.conf.priority and pqact.goesr
  • Replace checkFileTime.pl with checkFileTime.sh which can run without root permissions via cron
  • Replace ufpy package with NSF Unidata’s python-awips package
  • Update awips_install.sh installer to disableexcludes from yum.conf
  • Update derived parameters to include GFS20 to fix Surface Precipitation
  • Updates to satellite menu:
    • Update CPSD description file
    • Add Fog derived products to GOES WCONUS menu
    • Added "Rocket" to plume menu items
    • Updated Meso and Full RGB menus to have all valid RGB's
  • Small changes to modes to allow proper compressing of log files
  • Repair ACARS purging file

CAVE Updates

  • Remove GFE from Windows and Mac perspective menus (functionality not available on those Operating Systems currently)
  • Remove Edit Plot Attributes from METARs station plots (functionality also currently removed from NWS AWIPS because it’s not implemented correctly yet)

  Windows CAVE Installers

  • Updated naming convention of the .exe file to avoid confusion

NOTE: CAVE should be run using the CAVE.bat file to correctly use the packaged python
