Starlink Software Collection — 2022A Release Notes

Highlights

  • Starlink no longer requires the csh command to be available.

Changes to Applications

CUPID (ascl:1311.007)

  • The GaussClumps method in the findclumps command has been multi-threaded and so should run significantly faster on most modern computers.

GAIA (ascl:1403.024)

KAPPA (ascl:1403.022)

  • The block command has been multi-threaded and so should run significantly faster on most modern computers. It also now supports huge NDFs.
