A new development release of Biodiverse is now available.  This is the
first in the 3.99 series, leading to a version 4 release.

You can access it through
https://github.com/shawnlaffan/biodiverse/wiki/Downloads#development-release

An executable is available only for Windows at this time.  Mac and Linux
releases can be made if needed.

This release represents more than a year's worth of developments. More
details and links relating to the new developments can be accessed at

A few highlights include:

There is also an initial attempt to deal with external GDAL and Proj
DLLs in the path on Windows.  This needs testing.
