My colleague Robb Kambic found this description of BUFR edition 2: http://dss.ucar.edu/docs/formats/bufr/bufr.pdf Which has a very useful section 6 by John Stackpoole "Quirks, Advanced Features, and Special Uses of BUFR" including Section 6.3.1, which has: "Changes to the Tables which involve only additions do not require that the Version number of the Tables be changed." which might be read to imply that when version numbers change, incompatible changes might be introduced. But that doesnt seem to be stated anywhere. John Caron wrote:
Hello all: Can anyone point us to a description of BUFR edition 2? We realized that the docs we have only cover edition 3/4, and there may be some differences we dont know about. thanks. _______________________________________________ bufrtables mailing list bufrtables@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxFor list information or to unsubscribe, visit: http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/mailing_lists/
