Unidata McIDAS-X Users:

I am writing to you regarding the Unidata McIDAS-X 7.70 distribution
which you or someone at your site has downloaded.

If you downloaded 7.70 before December 1, you should regrab, build, and
install the entire distribution as there have been numerous changes
made since the distribution was originally made available.

If you downloaded 7.70 since December 1, you can easily upgrade, so you
don't have to regrab the entire distribution.  Please see below.

The most recent changes made to 7.70 (as of 20001218.17:48), include:

o modified the makefile to install the stretch tables for the CIMSS
  products (the stretch tables were in the distribution you got, but
  the makefile did not have the code that would install them)

o modified the BAR command (bar.pgm) to correctly annotate the storm
  total precipitation products (the format of the previous annotation did
  not allow for dates in the form CCYYDDD; it assumed YYDDD)

o IMGMAG (imgmag.pgm) was replaced by a new version from SSEC that
  saw adoption of Unidata mods to support correct reloading of NOAAPORT
  NIDS images

o changed the ADDE setup BATCH file DSSERVE.BAT to reflect the possible
  existence of both WSI and NOAAPORT NIDS products (dataset group names
  WSINIDS and RTNIDS, respectively)
o updated VERSION.TXT to correctly reflect the distribution date of
  December 18

I have created a compressed tar file, mcupdate.tar.Z, that contains all
modifications since the beginning of December and put it in the
unix/770/bugfix directory of the passworded McIDAS FTP account on our
FTP server, ftp.unidata.ucar.edu.

You should incorporate all of the changes by:

<login to your workstation as 'mcidas'>

cd mcidas7.7/update
ftp ftp.unidata.ucar.edu
  cd unix/770/bugifx
  get mcupdate.tar.Z

cd ../src

-- If your machine will be running McIDAS-X and -XCD (workstation and decoders):

make all
make install.all

-- Or, if machine will only be running McIDAS-X (workstation):
make mcx
make install.mcxall
