Core and Extension Release Day 2017!

Dear All:

We have been diligently updating many of our extensions and today is release day!

Extension updates range from major to minor.  The major effort was to make all Biomass extensions cross-compatible with Biomass, PnET, and NECN succession extensions.  Other updates including adding the Metadata Library to most extensions, allowing their use with the LANDVIZ tool:  

The Core was also updated to 6.2.1, although this is a very cosmetic upgrade, changing some of the error messages to be more intuitive.

We instituted a rigorous QAQC process for each.  However, as with all software, there's no doubt that some bugs remain.  Please let me know what you find.

Finally, we recommend a clean install if you are going to update.  Uninstall the model from Program Files -> LANDIS-II -> Uninstall.  Next delete the entire LANDIS-II directory from the Program Files directory.
