How do I know which OCSSW branches and tags are available?

Hello,

How do I know which OCSSW branches and tags are available so I can load the latest OCSSW software? Especially the new ones.

Thanks

See https://seadas.gsfc.nasa.gov/downloads/:

Code: Select all

Run the installer: The following will get a list of the available TAGS. 
Tags starting with "V" are operational versions, "T" are test versions.

$  ./install_ocssw --list_tags 
Note that the Ocean Color Web Site still has links for the old OCSSW software, for the current version the OCSSW documentation is on the SeaDAS Downloads page.

$ ./install_ocssw --list_tags command provides tag info:
. . . . .

T2021.9
V2020.0
V2020.1
V2020.2
V2021.0
V2021.1
V2021.2
don
initial
v3.1.0
v3.1.0-rc

v3.1.0-rc1 is the newest ? Is OCSSW v3.1.0 for current operational use ?

Thanks !

No, v3.1.0-rc1 was for the VIIRS submodule. The tags you should look at are the ones that start with a capital 'V'. The latest is V2021.2.

'T' tags are test tags that may eventually be promoted to a 'V' tag.
