## Version 1.7.0 released

New features:

- added support for netCDF Scalar Coordinate Variables
- added support for hybrid sigma pressure coordinates following the CF convention
- added option --percentile to select different percentile methods

Available methods: nrank, nist, numpy, numpy_lower, numpy_higher, numpy_nearest - distgrid: added support for curvilinear grids
- collgrid: added support for curvilinear grids

- remapycon: First order conservative remapping (new implementation of remapcon)
- genycon: Generate 1st order conservative remap weights (new implementation of gencon)
- setmisstonn: Set missing value to nearest neightbor
- setmisstodis: Set missing value to the distance-weighted average of the nearest neighbors
- ap2pl: Interpolate 3D variables on hybrid sigma height coordinates to pressure levels
- vertstd1: Vertical standard deviation [Divisor is (n-1)]
- vertvar1: Vertical variance [Divisor is (n-1)]
- seasvar1: Seasonal variance [Divisor is (n-1)]
- seasstd1: Seasonal standard deviation [Divisor is (n-1)]
- yseasvar1: Multi-year seasonally variance [Divisor is (n-1)]
- yseasstd1: Multi-year seasonally standard deviation [Divisor is (n-1)]

- remapnn, remapdis: replaced scrip search by kdtree (optimization)
- vertvar, vertstd: changed to weighted var/std if layer bounds are available

- cdo -t table_file does not complain if table_file is a directory [Bug #5891]
- expr: operators return 0 for arithmetics on constants [Bug #5875]
- env. CDO_TIMESTAT_DATE does not work [Bug #5758]
- splityear*: support for constant fields is missing [Bug #5759]
- yseaspctl: check of verification date failed [Bug #5810]
- Converting rotated lat-lon netcdf to/from grib: flip sign of the angle of rotation [Bug #5870]
