Forthcoming Sentinel-2 L1C product evolution in Autumn 2016

Dear all,

Pay attention in this major product evolution.

See details there:

Hope this helps.


Thanks @Olivier for the notice.

Please all be informed that the S2TBX development team plans to make the S2TBX reader ready for supporting the new format as soon as possible, before products are released to end-users.

Of course we will also maintain support for the current format (PSD 13.1) so that all products already downloaded will open seamlessly in the toolbox.

The first phase of the format change (single-tile package format, in September) should not involve changes in S2TBX.
The second phase will require a module update for S2TBX. Both new and old product formats will be supported and will be imported identically in SNAP (same band/mask/… names), so any SNAP application/graph working with PSD13.1 will work transparently with PSD 14 products.
