libcaglow 0.2 Release
by Caglow Library on December 31, 2016

A second snapshot of the Caglow library has been made available on the downloads page as version 0.2.

by Caglow Library on December 22, 2015

A snapshot of the Caglow library has been made available on the downloads page as version 0.1, the initial release of libcaglow. This release should be considered experimental as it has not been thoroughly tested and it will not be backward-compatible with future releases. The Caglow library (libcaglow) is a collection of astrodynamical algorithms in Ada 2012 suitable for use at the core of vir...
Project Retirement
by Aloac on August 11, 2014

With the upcoming transition to the Caglow 3 platform, the Aloac library is being retired. The Caglow project is moving away from the C programming language as a whole, towards the Ada programming language which favors code readability and maintainability, neither of which the Aloac library particularly excels at. As a result, there will be no more releases of Aloac.Development is transitioning to...
Intro to the Caglow Library
by Caglow Library on July 21, 2014

The Caglow Library (libcaglow) will form the basis of the next-generation of the Caglow platform. Once complete, it will replace Aloac as the Caglow project's standard library of astronomical and physical algorithms which other projects can then utilize. The fundamental difference between libcaglow and many other astronomical libraries, including Aloac, is that libcaglow is optimized for operat...

by Aloac on June 23, 2013

Aloac 2.3.1-1 is a re-release of Aloac 2.3.1. Soon after 2.3.1 was released, a serious bug was discovered that caused the calculation of rise, set and transit information for minor planets. This bug has now been resolved. A few minor bugs were also resolved. Downloads are available from the Aloac download page:
2.3.1 Update
by Aloac on June 23, 2013

Aloac 2.3.1 is a relatively minor update to the Aloac library. The main change introduced is the use of binary search to find rise, set and transit times. This method is both faster and more precise than the previous method of moving forward step by step. In addition, the phase angle function has been added to the I API to allow determining the phase angle of an object with respect to a source tha...
2.3 Release
by Aciqra on March 03, 2013

Aciqra 2.3 (Grand River) is the third major release of the Aciqra 2 series.

Refining the Build Process
by I Language on January 01, 2013

One of the main issues with the I language is its build process. Building I and all of its libraries required a detailed knowledge of how the project is structured. As a result, those individuals who wished to use Aciqra on a non-Windows computer were out of luck. Beginning in 2013, we will place a heavy emphasis on keeping the build process manageable. The makefiles have been refined to connec...
