AWIPS Tips: Unidata AWIPS 20.3.2-0.4 Beta Release - with EDEX!

AWIPS Tips

Welcome back to AWIPS Tips!

AWIPS 20.3.2-0.4 is a beta release, with both EDEX and CAVE installation options.

Because this is still in beta, not all functionality is available yet, but we are working to continually update and add features. Users will have the option of installing their own EDEX with this version, or continue to connect to Unidata's public EDEX (edex-beta.unidata.ucar.edu).

NOTE: We will still have our version 18.* public EDEX up and available for the foreseeable future, but the version of CAVE you are running has to match the version of EDEX it's connected to (ex. version 18.* of CAVE will not connect to version 20.* of EDEX).

EDEX Updates

  • CIMSS Prob Severe products have been added
  • UNIWISC Legacy Satellite products have been added
  • NOAA-20 and NSPP VIIRS products have been added
  • Radar mosaic menu options have been updated and are populated with data
  • QPID SSL environment variables are set on install
  • LDM has been updated to version 6.14.5
  • Fire and Public Forecast Zones have been updated
  • Removed a number of unused plugins for better performance
  • Updated postgres logging format to use date instead of day of week
  • Station location/metadata will auto update based on updates from the National Database Manager

CAVE Updates

  • NSHARP Button has been added to the top of CAVE
  • NSHARP "Load" preferences has been updated to v18 functionality (loads a list of available Upper Air locations by time)
  • Updated Export Menu wording
  • Added additional hotkeys to load/save displays
  • Default Procedure GUI is larger and resizable
  • CAVE --> About Dialog now shows build date/version

Windows Specific:

  • CAVE will run with users that have spaces in their username

Mac Specific:

  • Default "Put Home Here" GUI is larger and resizable

Functionality/Reporting

This is a beta release, so we are aware that not all functionality is working as expected. We ask you to please be aware of this and have similar expectations. One noteworthy deficiency we are aware of is the radar menu has not been updated yet to reflect what is in version 18. If you come across issues/bugs/missing functionality, we also encourage you to report it using this short form.

Comments:

Installation works fine but when attempting to run it, it responds with an error finding shell. version 18 works fine
