Distribution in 3 parts

In order to reduce the size of the files to be downloaded,
and to minimize required rebuilding with new minor releases,
we have separated the distribution into 3 parts:

The "pysrc" part is Python / Tcl / Tk.
The "exsrc" part is Netcdf / Pyfort / Pmw / xgks fonts
The "cdat" part is the cdat packages.

All three parts can be unpacked in the same directory. Build instructions are in the cdat part in README.txt. Remove any
former cdat distributions from the directory before unpacking.

Climate Data Analysis Tools: Release 3.1b1

A source-only beta release of cdat-3.1 is available.

There are significant improvements throughout the
system. The vcdat browser has many new capabilities.

The build process has been revamped to increase the likelyhood of successful
user builds from source. The build no longer requires Motif.

We have successfully built cdat-3.1b1 on Sun-Solaris, several flavors of Linux, and a Dec under OSF1. There is one spot in the build remaining, in package vcs, where the
system must be known; we hope to have this removed by the time of 3.1's final release.... read more

Solaris file ready

It took me two tries but cdat-3.0.0-bSolaris5.6.tar.Z is on SourceForge and finally has the right length. For some reason we lost a few hundred bytes the first two times.

Solaris file corrupted

The Solairis file in release 3.0.0 appears to be corrupted. Service to SourceForge downloads is poor today and we have not been able to replace it yet.

When we do the filename will start with an extra "a" to indicate the revised file.

Bug tracking facility active

Beta testers should report bugs using the SourceForge bug tracking system. Use the category "Robustness issues" for bad input producing abnormal terminations, strange error messages, etc; use "Normal bug" for good input producing bad results. Use the requests category for things you wish were handled.
