Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2008-9076

Name        : netcdf
Product     : Fedora 9
Version     : 3.6.3
Release     : 1.fc9
URL         : http://my.unidata.ucar.edu/content/software/netcdf/index.html
Summary     : Libraries for the Unidata network Common Data Form (NetCDF v3)
Description :
NetCDF-3 (network Common Data Form ver3) is an interface for
array-oriented data access and a freely-distributed collection of
software libraries for C, Fortran, C++, and perl that provides an
implementation of the interface.  The NetCDF library also defines a
machine-independent format for representing scientific data. Together,
the interface, library, and format support the creation, access, and
sharing of scientific data. The NetCDF software was developed at the
Unidata Program Center in Boulder, Colorado.

NetCDF data is:

   o Self-Describing: A NetCDF file includes information about the
     data it contains.

   o Network-transparent:  A NetCDF file is represented in a form that
     can be accessed by computers with different ways of storing
     integers, characters, and floating-point numbers.

   o Direct-access:  A small subset of a large dataset may be accessed
     efficiently, without first reading through all the preceding
     data.

   o Appendable:  Data can be appended to a NetCDF dataset along one
     dimension without copying the dataset or redefining its
     structure. The structure of a NetCDF dataset can be changed,
     though this sometimes causes the dataset to be copied.

   o Sharable:  One writer and multiple readers may simultaneously
     access the same NetCDF file.

Update Information:

Update to 3.6.3.    * In ncdump and ncgen, added CDL support for UTF-8encoding
of characters in names and for escaped special chars in names.  Made sure UTF-8
names are normalized using NFC rules before storing or comparing.    * Handle
IEEE NaNs and infinities in a platform-independent way in ncdump output.    *
Fixed bug in C++ API creating 64-bit offset files. (See http://www.unidata.ucar.
edu/software/netcdf/docs/known_problems.html#cxx_64-bit.)    * Fixed bug for
variables larger than 4 GB. (See http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/netcdf/doc
s/known_problems.html#large_vars_362.)
