New Libraries

PAL

The PAL library is a re-implementation of the Fortran SLA library in C. It uses the SOFA library wherever possible and has a GPL licence. We now use the PAL library in SMURF, AST and most of the perl interfaces. Fortran SLA is used by Fortran applications.

THR

THR is a library to support multi-threaded applications in C. It was extracted from the SMURF application to provide a general infrastructure for other Starlink applications. THR provides a facility for creating thread queues, submitting jobs to the queue and waiting for jobs to complete.

SOFA

We now ship a copy of the thirdparty SOFA astrometry library. Kapuahi comes with version 2012-03-01.
