    Thanks for the report.

    We can't mirror the source due to license restrictions, apparently, so there's not a fallback download available.

    And since it's not maintained, it wasn't on anybody's map to update.

    I just updated grads to the newest version. I didn't change the build options much, other than to add HDF5 support,
