The Unidata THREDDS Development Team released an updated version of the THREDDS Data Server (TDS) (and bundled netCDF-Java/Common Data Model (CDM) library) on September 9th, 2021. This release contains a variety of bug fixes, as well as updates to third-party libraries, including security updates. Version 4.6.17 of the TDS is the current stable release, and as such we recommend anyone running a TDS to upgrade to this version. Version 4.6.17 of netCDF-Java has been updated only in support of the TDS - the current stable and supported release of netCDF-Java is version 5.4.2, and we encourage users to migrate to the current stable version for future support.
