HRPT Reader

V3.0.8 - Add enhanced NOAA BD1 thermal LUT, provide user-defined SST palette (provides better SST detail, 256 entries coded R,G,B covers the currently defined temperature range, a sample palette is provided: sst-lut.pal, can be read in batch mode from the command-line: -sstSST-PAL.pal:corr.jpg, and specify a temperature range on the command-line too: -sstSST-PAL.pal(15,25):corr.jpg), detect RAW16 satellite type for NOAA-19, fix error with "VI" mode and blank video, preliminary support for unpacked Meteor-M N2 data (Rob Alblas .DAT files with header preserved, Oleg .MN2 files, new file has .MSU2 extension, same date), reduce chances of "1899" dates appearing on saved images or in processed.lst, clarify timestamp option, warn more strongly about missing Kepler data.
