The main additions to the library are performance and resource improvements:
- Pthreads/Parallel I/O now used for large transmissions.
- Data are no longer retained in memory once they are sent to a client.
- See NEWS and ChangeLog for fixes and other additions.
The libdap 3.15 software requires libcurl 7.19, libxml2 2.7 and a modern pthreads library (installing the RPMs above using yum will fetch these for you automatically). To build from a fresh GitHub clone, you'll need automake 1.11, autoconf 2.63 and libtool 2.2.
- Version 3.15.1
- libdap-3.15.1.tar.gz, gpg signature. Required: libcurl, libxml2 and pthreads. With CentOS/RPM you'll need the regular packages plus the '*-devel' development packages for these; '*-dev' for Debian/Ubuntu/deb. They are commonly present on machines configured for development. See above. For Windows, we suggest using the OC library for client side access or building/running the server using CygWin.
