GPlates 2.1 released (and pyGPlates revision 18)

GPlates Title LogoGPlates 2.1 was released today! Many bugs have been fixed, including the computation of crustal thinning factors. NetCDF-4 is now supported for raster import/export, i.e. GPlates 2.1 can now read and write GMT-5 grids. Many thanks to the GPlates development team and especially to Sabin Zahirovic without whose tireless efforts GPlates 2.1 would not have an entirely new set of data, updated and extended in many ways! Details here: http://www.earthbyte.org/gplates-2-1-software-and-data-sets. This release also contains pyGPlates revision 18.  Please use this pyGPlates release when working with any data saved by GPlates 2.0 or GPlates 2.1 (especially topologies).
