Several exchanges regarding GEMPAK 5.10.1 being available on the web
site have already taken place. This is the official announcement that
5.10.1 is now available.
You can find a short description of new features here:
More in depth descriptions can be found in the Whats New section of the
nmap2 help also linked to the page referenced above.
NCEP developers have provided notification for retirement of five legacy
GEMPAK GD programs. They are: GDCNTR, GDSTREAM, GDWIND, GDMAP and
GDPLOT. The functionality of each of these programs is fully
incorporated into GDPLOT2. In addition, GDPLOT2 provides additional
capabilities beyond the capabilities provided by these individual
programs. Minimal changes are needed to go from the legacy program
parameter settings to GDPLOT2 parameter settings.
The plan is to retire these five programs one year from February, 2007.
That is, they will not be included with 5.11.2 in February, 2008.
As always, if you have support questions including questions regarding
migrating your older scripts etc. from the programs listed above to
GDPLOT2, please address these to support-gempak@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
