IMPORTANT: As of SeaDAS version 5.2, many processing programs have been renamed. If you make use of processing scripts, please be sure to rename any affected SeaDAS programs in these scripts!
Major Changes from SeaDAS 5.1:
* All processing code is now directly synced to the OBPG production system's
code via the Subversion software version control system.
* Many renamed processing programs.
* New processing program versions.
* New l2gen version 5.8.3 (msl12 has been renamed l2gen).
