Dear Jenny

It's sad to hear that a great team that produce an excellent tool for displaying a lot of our own work will not longer be funded.
As an end user I have to say THANK YOU SO MUCH to all your effort for producing great tools, but also for given us support on how to use GrADS.

I wish you all success with your new plans!

Cheers from Mexico City.

Dear All,
The time has come to announce some changes at COLA that will affect all of us: the funding that supports GrADS has come to an end. Brian Doty will be retiring at the end of the summer, and I will be moving to NASA/GSFC to work in the Goddard Earth Sciences (GES) Data and Information Services Center (DISC). Both of us will continue to be active GrADS users, and our plan is to move the source code to GitHub where it will become a more traditional open source project. Our development and support of GrADS going forward will be a volunteer effort, but I sincerely hope you will not interpret this news as a reason to stop using GrADS. We feel that our recent changes to GrADS make it a flexible and extendable tool with a stable core and the necessary hooks for further customization by ambitious users. COLA will continue to host this forum, and I will remain as the moderator and frequent contributor. I promise to do what I can to ensure that GrADS remains relevant, useful, and fast.
