ESGF 1.8.1 - Released - March 11 2015

esg-search (wget script)

  • included new -T flag to explicitly make it use TLSv1 when communicating with ORP. This is required for earlier versions of wget ( <= 1.12 ) when communicating with sites which only support TLSv1.
  • Added workaround for wget 1.11.4 as it fails to execute final redirect back to data url following sign in with -H. This fix is compatible with later versions of wget.
