This release is a bug-fix release, and is necessary mainly for installers of LAS who run the Ferret executables for RHEL6 linux.
Fixes and changes in Ferret v6.72:
1. When using the RH6 Ferret executables, and running Ferret in -gif mode, some plot calls resulted in an error message
ferret: gif.c:1005: GIFcellArray: Assertion `num_pt > 0' failed.
This is fixed. The bug was present but never made itself felt in the RH5 executables.
2. A bug was reported, related to the changes described in item #7 of the v6.7 release notes, where we now assign dimensions to grids so that an axis has the same direction for all grids in the dataset. In some example datasets an axis was inadvertently dropped from a grid. This is fixed.
3. When installing Ferret, note that the Finstall script and the tar files that contain the Ferret executables and environment have been re-arranged. Use the Finstall script from the current fer_environment.tar file, and everything will be installed correctly.
