LDM Status Report

LDM version of previous report was 6.7.0. Current LDM is 6.8.1.

LDM release highlights since previous report:

The NWS's ultimate plans for using the LDM to distribute NEXRAD-II data will likely require a new feature to be added to the LDM to support the low-bandwidth lines out of each radar site. In preparation for this and some other more user-friendly features, Steve is currently working on upgrading the LDM package to use more modern version-control, build procedures (including support for shared libraries), and user-configuration mechanisms. Among other things, this will permit more automatic installation and operation of the LDM.
