v2.4.3 - 2020-08-14
  • Library updates (some may not apply):
    • edu.ucar.unidata.netcdf;bundle-version="5.3.3",
    • gov.usgs.jem.cerp.netcdf;bundle-version="3.0.0",
    • gov.usgs.jem.spatial.model;bundle-version="2.0.0",

    • gov.usgs.jem.netcdf.ncmlcreator.ui;bundle-version="2.0.0",
    • gov.usgs.jem.thredds.ui;bundle-version="2.0.0"
  • Attempt to resolve the majority of compiler warnings through a combination of mechanisms:
    • refactor deprecated to current usage where possible, suppress deprecation otherwise;
    • add javadocs in some cases, but suppress where documentation was largely ignored or code is not otherwise actively maintained;
    • suppress or address other compiler warnings (e.g. resource; unused)

  • guava;bundle-version="29.0.0",
  • org.apache.commons.csv;bundle-version="1.8.0",
  • org.geotools.plugin;bundle-version="23.0.0",
  • edu.ucar.unidata.netcdf;bundle-version="5.1.0",

  • org.apache.httpcomponents;bundle-version="4.5.12"

v2.4.1 - 2018-05-31
  • Add an option to the headless options, -rsm-polygon-file, and also the UI to be able to specify the shapefile to use when generating the output shapefile.

v2.4.0 - 2017-12-20
  • Earlier checking (and warning) of malformed return periods CSV file
  • Added support for optional hydrometrics input CSVs. Return periods and hydrometrics are calculated only if the hydrometrics are not given.
  • Removed dependency on RSM Cell IDs in target return periods file.
  • Added UI Validation and updated the parameters xml saving and loading to include the optional hydrometrics.

v2.3.0 - 2017-03-02

  • Updated ProcessHydro to set proper fill values in NC header based on variable data type.

v2.2.1 - 2015-05-21 (MP)
  • Updated code to use generic gov.usgs.jem.mail plug-in for sending bug reports and enhancement requests.
  • Added 32-bit .bmp launching icons.
  • Updated required bundles, imported packages, features for changes related to gov.usgs.jem.internal,
  • gov.usgs.jem.mail

v2.2.0-v1.0.0 - 2014-09-23 (SV)

  • Removed baseline file prefix and made "alternative" depth file prefix optional.
  • Re-structured the parameters XML file to reflect new UI changes.
  • Auto-create parameters.xml file in output folder at start of run to give context to output data.
