A 180 error in the grib plugin pointer values for tidal currents ?

A 180 direction error seems to occur in the pointer values, at least with these grib files
Index of /MyOcean
(e.g. Bretagne is the French English Channel South coast)
The displayed arrows on the chart are fine. The value in the "sine display" is fine as well, and the OT plugin displays the correct value.

Has this been fixed in beta versions?
See FS#2078 : 180 error in the grib plugin pointer values for tidal currents

Mike R reports: opencpn.willkamp.com/index.php?do=details&task_id=2078#comment6060

Cursor data now shows the correct (conventional) direction for tidal current.

However ... the weather data table (right-click menu option) is 180 degrees in error. See new flyspray item. FS#2172 : Weather Table for tidal current shows direction 180 degree in error

I will close the first one. Thanks Mike.
