All releases

  • Version 4.0.0 Source .tar.gz (April 2024)

    • Use cmake to compile the library. Binary ABI may be broken by this major change in the compilation process. The library remains compatible at the source level: the existing application therefore only needs a recompilation.

    • Fix memory buffer overflow if the number of constants is greater than 400 in the original JPL files.
  • Version 3.5.5 Source .tar.gz (February 2024)

    calcephoct-3.5.5.tar.gz Octave package
