GMT 5.4.0 released May 8, 2017
We have released a new 5.4.x series with many new features and options, as well as broad enhancements.
GMT 5.4.0 offers numerous bug fixes and general improvements across the board; see http://gmt.soest.hawaii.edu/doc/5.4.0/GMT_Docs.html#new-features-in-gmt-5-4 for details. Of particular interest is the introduction of a GMT data cache where files downloaded form the internet are stored. Global relief grids named earth_relief_??m|s.grd can be accessed on the command line and will be downloaded form the GMT Server if not already in your cache. Resolutions range from 15 arc seconds to 60 arc minute grids. Input files specified by a full URL will be downloaded to the user's cache directory. A new model for ternary plots as well as custom symbol for structural geology has been added as well.
