Re: [thredds] [Ncwms-users] Release of ncWMS 1.0 (full release)

Hi Rich,

Current tds 4.3 version (4.3.14) already is almost up to date with the ncWMS trunk, actually we have synchronized up to revision 957 (current is 972). Besides, we added some of the features from the asascience ncWMS version: new vector styles and interval time support in the wms capabilities documents. We are currently working in getting everything up to date with the ncWMS-1.0 for our next release, 4.3.15, and also we'll make our version of the ncWMS code available in an Unidata's github repository so people will be able to see the actual code that TDS work with (although the code is already available in our nexus server and gets downloaded with a maven build). Hopefully, when the ncWMS modular version is ready we'll just pull the code from the the ncWMS without keeping these intermediate branches.

How does this version relate to the version of WMS included with the
Thredds Data Server 4.3 stable release announced earlier this week?
Are the development paths still closely linked, or are they diverging?

Dear all,

The ncWMS team is pleased to announce (finally!) that we have released a full 
version 1.0, available from  This includes a number of bug 
fixes and tweaks since the previous release candidate (1.0RC3).  Everyone is 
encouraged to upgrade.

(I'm aware that the documentation needs updating in places - this will be done 
as soon as we can.)

Unfortunately we have not been able to include all recent feature requests, 
mainly because we have had to focus efforts on the needs of specific projects.  
However, we have been working on many things recently and will gradually fold 
these innovations back to the main line of development.  Future releases will 

1. Support for more sophisticated styling mechanisms, giving greater control 
over colour palettes and vector styles, plus new styles including contours.
2. Support for non-gridded data types (e.g. in situ observations, "point" data).
3. A more modular build system based on Maven, allowing modules to be reused 
more easily in other projects (e.g. THREDDS).

... amongst many other features.  Note that we are moving away from the current 
Sourceforge/Subversion system for releases and builds.   When we have a new 
release under the new system we will notify everyone.  (Bug fixes will still be 
applied to ncWMS 1.0, so there may be more minor releases under this line.)

As usual, please keep the suggestions and bug reports coming in!

Best wishes,
Jon, Guy and the team
