> Organization: Private
> Package Version: 5.0u2 build date:2014-11-12 20:09 UTC
> Operating System: Windows 8
> Hardware: Java: home: C:\Program Files\IDV_5.0\jre version: 1.7.0_51
> j3d:1.6.0-pre9-daily-experimental daily
> Description of problem:
> When loading the same Grib2 file in IDV 5.0 and 5.1(or 5.1u2), the fields
> available under the Field selector tab are significantly different.
> In version 5.1 there are two extra options available, namely TwoD and
> Best and no derived fields, whereas in version 5.0 only normal parameter
> options as well as derived ones.
> The problem I now have is IDV sessions created in version 5.0 no longer
> work in 5.1. The difference seems to occur in a grib2 file with more
> than one forecast hour (time period). For a grib file with only one time
> period version 5.1 gives the same fields as 5.0.
> I have attached an image of the two dashboard for better explanation. Any
> assistince will be appreciated.

This is very odd, I tried my local WRF output in GRIB2 format in the 5.1u2
and not seeing this kind of structure. We would like to have
a sample file to study it. Please upload a sample here:
