We plan to upgrade the Unidata TDS to 4.3 shortly after IDV 4.0 is
released. We hope this will occur in the next few weeks but will
provide more information on the timeline as we move forward. In the
mean time, please test your scripts and tools against the Unidata Test
What does "shortly after" mean? While a 4.0 alpha release is available
in the nightly build, some IDV users might be reluctant to use an alpha
release. I'm concerned that "real world" use will uncover more
problems, particularly with local grib files.
While I've been working closely with the IDV Development Team on getting
the necessary code changes, IDV 4.0 still needs work to get it right and
lots of testing. The code changes also affect the McIDAS-V developers
and users. So, I hope that once IDV 4.0 is released, there will be a
significant amount of time (1 month?) for users to download, install and
test it before a switch occurs on motherlode.
