It might not be a bad idea to release a new version of HC, called
1.0.2, perhaps.

The current SVN version of HC contains several minor bug fixes
(regarding the driver
interface, not computational accuracy), and the following improvements:

- output of velocities and density anomalies in VTK format  for 3D
visualization, e.g., using Paraview
- compatibility with GMT newer than 4.5.1
- support for GMT nearneighbor (as opposed to bilinear/bicubic)
interpolation of Netcdf grd files

And maybe we can use the following as a new, general reference for HC:
