NetCDF 4.6.3

Version 4.6.3 of the netCDF-C library is now available. Changes include (but are not limited to):

  • netcdf.pc is now correctly generated either by configure or cmake. If linking against a static netcdf, you would need to pass the --static argument to pkg-config in order to list all of the downstream dependencies.
  • The hidden coordinates attribute is now always written, which allows faster file opens when present.
  • Some fixes for rename, including fix for renumbering of varids after a rename, renaming var to dim without coordinate var.
  • Fix of NULL parameter causing segfaults in put_vars functions.
  • Fix of —enable-benchmark benchmark tests.
  • Update the license from the home-brewed netCDF license to the standard 3-Clause BSD License. This change does not result in any new restrictions; it is merely the adoption of a standard, well-known and well-understood license in place of the historic netCDF license written at Unidata. This is part of a broader push by Unidata to adopt modern, standardized licensing.
  • Corrected DAP-releated issues on big-endian machines.
  • Extended nccopy -F syntax to support multiple variables with a single invocation.
  • Corrected an issue where DAP2 was incorrectly converting signed bytes, resulting in an erroneous error message under some circumstances.
  • Modified nccopy so that _NCProperties is not copied over verbatim but is instead generated based on the version of libnetcdf used when copying the file. Additionally, _NCProperties are now displayed if/when associated with a netCDF3 file.

Detailed information about the release is available in the Release Notes.

Complete information about using this release can be found in the NetCDF Documentation.

Source-code zip and tar.gz archives can be found on Unidata's NetCDF-C GitHub site.

Pre-built Windows binaries for use with Visual Studio) are available from this page.

Users of the netCDF FORTRAN and C++ Libraries Note

You can use the upgraded C library without upgrading your FORTRAN or C++ library.

Updated FORTRAN and C++libraries will be available shortly.
