Version 4.7.0 of the netCDF-C library is now available. Changes include (but are not limited to):
- Update behavior of
nc-configto allow the use of the
nc-config --libs --static, which will show information for linking against
- Provide byte-range reading of remote datasets. This allows read-only access to, for example, Amazon S3 objects and also THREDDS Data Server datasets via the HTTPService access method.
- 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.
