IRAF V2.16 Release Now Available
The release of the IRAF V2.16 system featuring Virtual Observatory (VO) capabilities is now available. This release covers both 32-bit and 64-bit Linux and Mac OSX systems. This system is RECOMMENDED for all users, and although the VO features are optional, v2.16 contains a number of important bug fixes (especially for those on 64-bit platforms). In addition, v2.16 contains a number of new capabilities affecting all tasks in the system:
Enhanced @-file templates
New VO-CL Command Language
URL Support in all tasks
VOTable Support in all tasks
New VO External Package
Removal of all license restrictions
These are described in more detail in the distribution README file. Detailed release notes are available in the release README file and are included below. Detailed descriptions of the VO capabilities and a quick-start guide are in preparation and will be available shortly.
Video demonstrations of the new VO capabilities in the system are available here (YouTube Overview) and here (downloadable MP4 Tutorial).
Additionally, a full complement of external packages linked against the new system is available using the dynamic package mechanism introduced in v2.15.
As the first public release of new core capabilities, we expect that bugs will be found and we are relying on users to provide testing and feedback, especially for the science tasks and external package code. Additional documentation and release updates will be announced on the IRAF web site
as they become available. Comments, questions and suggestions may be posted to the IRAF user support forums at http://iraf.net.[url][/url]
