-  * ENVI-met: ​Added the ability of writing NetCDF output files directly through the simulation instead of converting them in postprocessing. NetCDF output files are produced for every hour but hold all data within a single file (no different files are created for atmosphere, buildings, surface, vegetation etc.). Building data needed to be splitted into fields holding either X, Y, or Z data. If simulation crashes during file writing when NetCDF outputs are activated, most likely there is a Microsoft Component missing: Please install Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 SP1 Redistributable Package (found here: https://​www.microsoft.com/​en-hk/​download/​confirmation.aspx?​id=13523). +  * Added a time estimation for the simulation finish as well as a progress bar to visualize the simulation progress
