GVAR version 20120111
Software and Instructions
This version (20120111) is the latest update
to the current SDI-104 GVAR full release (20080930
). Because the updates
are cumulative, this version contains the previous updates (20091021, 20100330
and 20111205). Also note that updates are partial releases that contain only
a subset of the full release so if you are doing an initial install on a
workstation you must first install the full release, and then the latest
update. See the SDI Software page
for all available full releases and updates.
SDI-104 GVAR version 20120111 contains updates to fix a problem where an IMGCOPY
(or other IMG* command) that requests a complete GOES-15 Sub-CONUS image while
it's being ingested produces a blank line at the point in which the ingestor
starts receiving Sounder data. See the SDI-104
GVAR Software Changes page to see the list of changes for all versions
of SDI-104 GVAR available on the McIDAS Website.
