A new development release of Biodiverse is now available.  This is the
third instalment in the 2.99 series, heading towards a version 3 release.

You can access it through
https://github.com/shawnlaffan/biodiverse/wiki/Downloads

Releases are available for Windows and Mac at this time.  A Linux
release can be made if one is needed.


The main highlights of this release are:

1.
Unicode file names are now supported. This was implemented across
several issues - https://github.com/shawnlaffan/biodiverse/projects/3
(A few) more details are in the blog post:

2.
Label axes can be dropped.  e.g. a structure like
Family:Genus:species:population can be converted to Genus:species.
More details are in the blog post:

3.
You can now export RGB GeoTIFFs to reproduce the Biodiverse colour
schemes for spatial outputs.
