The National Space Science Data Center's (NSSDC) Common Data Format (CDF) is a self-describing data abstraction for the storage and manipulation of multidimensional data in a platform- and discipline-independent fashion. It consists of a scientific data management package (known as the "CDF Library") that allows programmers and application developers to manage and manipulate scalar, vector, and multi-dimensional data arrays.


This release adds two new data types: CDF_INT8 and CDF_TIME_TT2000. It adds a new tool, cdfleapsecondsinfo, for performing calculations on leapseconds. It adds an opion to convert epoch between CDF_EPOCH/EPOCH16 and CDF_TIME_TT2000 in cdfconvert tool. It modifies the code to handle 64-bit Fortran on Solaris/Intel.
