     1= Release Note of 1.8.1 = 
     2 * Release date: January 28, 2017. 
     3 * The source tar balls can be obtained from the [http://cucis.ece.northwestern.edu/projects/PnetCDF/download.html Download Page] 
     4 
     5This release is mainly for fixing the following bug. 
     6 
     7  * Bug fixes: 
     8    * Fortran parameters NF_MAX_DIMS, NF_MAX_ATTRS, NF_MAX_VARS, and NF_MAX_NAME 
     9      defined in the Fortran header file, pnetcdf.inc, were set to obsolete 
     10      values and have been fixed in this release to conform with their 
     11      corresponding C constants. Because these four parameters were not used 
     12      by PnetCDF internally, the end users can safely skip this release and 
     13      1.8.1 should perform the same as 1.8.0. If your programs explicitly use 
     14      these four parameters, then updating to 1.8.1 is recommended. 
     15 
     16  * Other updates: 
     17    * To conform with GNU Coding Standards, the installation location for man 
     18      pages are changed to ${prefix}/share/man. 
     19    * Support of DESTDIR for Building Binary Packages has been added, as 
     20      suggested by !sunpoet@FreeBSD.org. Ticket #25
