About this version
Version 4.5.5 includes serveral bug fixes and improvements, including:
- fixing a memory leak when processing netcdf4/hdf5 files
- fixing a bug with nested aggregations not working when caching was on, eg in TDS
- fixing a bug handling client-side certificates
- better handling of scalar runtime coordinate for GRIB collections
- an upgrade to ncWMS
- fixing NIDS start/end dates
Note on handling of GRIB files
Version 4.3 included a complete rewrite of GRIB1 and GRIB2 file handling, intended to correct problems that exist in version 4.2's handing of tables (especially in non-NCEP files) and time interval coordinates. If you are upgrading from version 4.2, please read the Notes to GRIB users.
The NetCDF-Java development team at the Unidata Program Center strongly encourages operators of sites that take advantage of the CDM libraries to install the latest version and forward any potential issues to the development team via Unidata's support system (firstname.lastname@example.org) or the user community mailing list (email@example.com). Real-world use of new features by the user community is integral to the process of creating and refining these libraries.
