Dear all,

I'd like to inform you that SICOPOLIS can now write compressed NetCDF-4 
output. To do so, `git pull` the latest revision from the develop branch 
and add


to the run-specs headers. See one of the headers in the 'templates' 
directory for an example. By default, the parameter is set to 0, which 
writes NetCDF-3 classic output as before. However, if your NetCDF 
installation has NetCDF-4 enabled, I encourage you to change to the new 
format as it saves a lot (~ factor 3) of disk space.

I hope you'll like the new feature. Of course, should there be any 
issues, please let me know.

Best regards,
