Hi mantainers A long due upgrade to current Netcdf (4.0.1) is now available on _experimental_ (just ACCEPTED on the NEW queue in record times). Note that version 4 is a major upgrade in netcdf API. It is back-compatible with version 3, but offers a new improved API too and depends on HDF5 1.8. I would not expect major problems, but it would allow some projects to improve or being now packaged or possibly obsolete other ones (e.g. python-netcdf4 vs python-netcdf).
Please, do your homework using the experimental repository to test your apps. Of course, the new libraries will imply as soon as possible (a couple of weeks from now is my current idea) a library SONAMEs change, and the usual round of binNMUs will come to provide a smooth migration whenever uploaded into unstable. In the mean time it is better verifing if all things work as expected. The 4.1 version is still in beta stage, but I would possibly expect another migration within the Squeeze release cycle, introducing an OpenNDAP dependency in the deps chain. We live in mutable times... -- Francesco P.
