Hi everyone,

You are amongst the 2,850 people registered on the degrib mailing list. Please email me if you wish to unregister. (My apologies to the one I received today which I didn't have a chance to remove)

The focus of release 1.89 is to fix some bugs in 1.88.

------- General News:

------- Details about release: 1.89 (last one was 1.88 on 10/18/2007)

1) 1.88 labeled "probability of Temp above average for days 8 to 14 (144 hours)", as ProbTMP144, instead of my intent of ProbTMPAbv144. This makes it difficult to differentiate Above vs Below average. The bug also impacted ProbTMP01m, and ProbTMP03m, but not the precip ones. 1.89 fixed the problem with the ProbTMP elements, and it now generates my intended "ProbTMPAbv144".

2) In 1.87, when I added the ability to parse units of "months" and "years" to the code that parses time from encoded units to seconds, I inadvertently reduced the length of the unit table from 14 to 13. This dropped the unit "seconds" from the table. 1.89 has re-expanded the table so it can convert from seconds to seconds.

3) Updated to the latest version of "dwmllib".

------- Please let me know if you have problems.
