Starlink Software Collection - Lehuakona Release Notes

General Changes

  • All documentation has been updated to use a current version of latex2html. Most now use LaTeX2e too.

  • This will be the last supported OS X PPC release.
  • This will be the last supported OS X 10.4 (Tiger) release for both PPC and Intel platforms.

New Applications

  • ASTZOOMMAP in ATOOLS creates a new AST ZoomMap.

  • ASTDISTANCE in ATOOLS calculates the distance between two points, given an AST Frame.
  • PROVMOD in KAPPA allows provenance information in an NDF to be modified.
  • PROVREM in KAPPA removes selected provenance records from an NDF.
  • REGIONMASK in KAPPA masks out regions of an NDF, similar to ARDMASK, but uses AST Regions instead of ARD descriptions.
  • WCSSLIDE in KAPPA applies a translational correction to the World Co-ordinate System (WCS) of an NDF and may be used to correct pointing errors.
  • UNMAKECUBE in SMURF creates simulated time-series data from a given sky cube, using existing time-series cubes as templates.

Changes to Applications

ATOOLS

  • New command ASTZOOMMAP allows for an AST ZoomMap to be created. A ZoomMap is a linear Mapping which performs a "zoom" transformation by multiplying all co-ordinate values by the same scale factor.

  • New command ASTDISTANCE finds the distance between two points in a given Frame, along the geodesic curve that joins the two points.

MERS

Most of MERS has been rewritten in C from the original Fortran. This is part of an ongoing effort to make MERS thread-safe.

STARTCL

Bug Fixes

* A bug that caused a graphics X window created by ORAC-DR to have no size has been fixed.

STARJAVA

The STARJAVA applications and libraries were built using Java version 1.4.2. A version of the Java runtime environment of at least this level is required to make use of them.
