----------- News about this release:
I have just finished putting together version "1.47" (last one that I
announced was "1.46" on 3/16/2004).
This release is mainly focused on a bug that "chrism" reported last night.
1) For probing GRIB files at a specific lat/lon, which you currently can
only do using the command line program (see degrib/docs/degrib.txt (-P
option)), I allow one to use a "pntFile" to specify an arbitrary number
of stations. The format is "station, lat, lon". This has been an
option for degrib for a while now. Each of the different pntStyles (0,
1 and now 2) would use the station as a label on the outputted result.
In version "1.46", when I cleaned up the GRIB probing routines, I
accidentally changed from using the "station label" to using "(gridX,
gridY, lat, lon)". This meant I was not backward compatible. I believe
I have now fixed that error, and wanted to get the fix out before I
inconvenienced too many people..
Please let me know if you have problems, and I apologize for the
frequency of these notes.
