[netCDFJava #OWD-641139]: Writing NetCDF 2.3.2

Hi Atanas,

A quick addition to Lansing's note ...

Until version 3.6.0 of the netCDF-C library, there was only a single netCDF 
file format (now called "netCDF classic" or "netCDF-3" files). A second file 
format (a minor variant) was added with the 3.6.0 library. With version 4.0 of 
the netCDF-C library came the "netCDF-4" file format (based on HDF5).

For more detail on netCDF file formats, see 


Bottom line, all current and old netCDF libraries should be able to read 
netCDF-3 files.
