This is a new major release of AAPP. The main changes are: (i) replacement of old versions of the MAIA cloud mask: MAIA4 is now used for both AVHRR and VIIRS; (ii) addition of interfaces to ecCodes, ECMWF’s new BUFR/GRIB software library; (iii) Support for JPSS-1 (NOAA-20). Most of the other functions are backward-compatible with AAPP v7. Please see the AAPP web pages for further information.
