Dear all,

The ESMF Core Team is pleased to announce the ESMF 8.4.1 patch release. It is now available for download at Release notes and known issues are also available in the usual format on the ESMF website:

ESMF 8.4.1 is a patch release that fixes a major issue that was discovered in 8.4.0 after it was released. The identified bug can lead to memory corruption problems, which are often hard to detect and diagnose by their nature. We strongly recommend upgrading applications that are currently using 8.4.0 to patch release 8.4.1.

As a patch release, 8.4.1 does not introduce new features beyond 8.4.0. Besides the major bug fix mentioned above, a number of smaller bug fixes and maintenance work is included with the patch release. See the release notes for more details.

Applications that have already moved to ESMF 8.5.0 beta tags do not need to upgrade to the 8.4.1 patch. For these cases an upgrade to 8.5.0, when officially released later this year, is the recommended next step. All of the fixes that come with patch release 8.4.1 are also available in beta tag v8.5.0b18 and newer.

As always, please write with any questions or issues concerning ESMF.

With best regards,

The ESMF Core Team
