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. The PAL library's associated document is SUN/267.

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. THR is documented in SUN/266.

SOFA

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