New features in version 4.3 of the Radar Software Toolkit (RST) include:

Update to the Heppner Maynard Boundary (HMB) lower latitude limit from 50 degrees to 40 degrees in map_addhmb
Addition of convection model library in cnvmodel.1.0 that reduces duplicate copies of code
Updated elevation angle algorithms library
Bugfix to map_addimf for missing IMF values
Updates to map, time, and field plotting
Bugfix for negative phidiff for fitacf 3.0
Update to dmap to check for appropriate array size values
Bugfix to IDL and DLM versions of FitClose functionality
Bugfix to solve_model for longitude spacing for equal-area grid option
Updates to real-time grid code in rtgrid in model compatibilities
Proper reading and writing of fit-level data file version numbers
Updates to numerous hdw.dat files as well as radar.dat file
Updates to documentation (includes a Readthedocs page that is still a work in progress in parts)
Updates to make_smr output formatting
Update to OldFitWrite library to store offset value
Additions of warning or error messages in only a few parts of codebase
Reduction in number of compilation warnings
In addition, this release introduces Codacy checks on the github side of things to check for a number of coding/software issues. However, these issues will largely show up during new pull request where files are modified.

The RST is actively developed and maintained by the SuperDARN Data Analysis Working Group (https://homepage.usask.ca/~pbp672/DAWG.html).
