The UPP User Release Version 4.0.1 was released on August 21, 2019.
Also see 'Known Issues' in this release, which is updated as needed.
Significant Bug fixes:
FV3GFS processing fix:
Modified input format for processing FV3GFS data.
Users should use UPPV4.0.1 for all FV3GFS processing. Previous versions are now considered legacy for FV3GFS.
Users should use 'binarynemsiompiio' instead of 'binarynemsio' in their run script. The binarynemsio format option will not be supported in the future.
Scripts in this release have been modified accordingly.
FV3GFS USERS SHOULD UPGRADE THEIR WORKFLOW TO USE THIS RELEASE UPPV4.0.1.
