============================================================================ SeaDAS 7.3.2 Release Notes (Release Date: May 26, 2016)============================================================================The SeaDAS development team is pleased to announce the release of SeaDAS 7.3.2,which is built atop a slightly modified BEAM 5.0.1 version.The science processing code has been updated to reflect changes recentlyimplemented in production, provide bug fixes and support for the R2014.0reprocessing for SeaWiFS and MODIS-Terra as well as VIIRS SST R2016.0.Primary Package FEATURE ADDITIONS/MODIFICATIONS - Universal Color Palette. Updated this palette to Version 3 which has a slightly darker and pale greener center. Several versions of this palette exist and are placed (hidden from the GUI) in the extras folder. - RGB tool: added button for setting each RGB channel, min=0 and max=1. This feature is especially useful when using any of the rhos based rgb profiles which were designed to be optimally used with a color ramp of [0,1]. Greatly improves time needed to do this as before one had to type the numbers in. - Menu reorganization/renames: minor reorganization in the direction of what we anticipate to be the SeaDAS 8 configuration. - "DataProcessing" changed to "OCSSW". BUG FIXES - In Color Manager disabled the "apply palette to other bands" feature due to it's not supporting the latest color scheme configuration. - Fixes broken link in the color scheme selector. - Fixes problem where color bar would not always display the end point label when used in manually entered points mode. HELP PAGES - Updated Pixel Extraction help page to clarify the formats for coordinate parameter input file.Science Processing Code FEATURES ADDITIONS/MODIFICATIONS - Support for NASA L1 format VIIRS - Support for Sentinel-3A OLCI - Update to GOCI defaults - Support for full (hyperspectral) HICO - Support for VIIRS SST - Add support for reading and writing generic netCDF L1B files - Updated MODIS-Terra defaults for V2014.0 processing BUG FIXES - Corrected scaling and valid_min/max attributes for several products - Removed dependency on lzma library that affected Mac binaries - Fixed l1info for Landsat OLI files~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Useful Notes~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Notes on Upgrading your SeaDAS versionIf you already have SeaDAS version 7 or higher installed:In your home directory there is a directory titled '.seadas'. This contains version-specific preferences and defaults. This directory also contains any custom color palettes and rgb-profiles which you may have created. Because of this, a seadas installation will automically move and rename the previous '.seadas' directory putting it in your home directory. When seadas is launched and does not find this '.seadas' directory, it will automically create this directory and initialize it with the package settings and defaults. You can then manually copy any of your custom color palettes and rgb-profiles from the backed up copy of your previous version's '.seadas' directory over into the '.seadas' directory.
