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...

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...

Renamed to Aloac
by Aloac on June 28, 2010

Aciv is no more! Actually it's still here. Except it's now called Aloac. The naming was the result of an acronym that no longer stood for what the project really was. It was also due to there being another project on SourceForge with the Aciv name (well, it's UNIX name was `aciv'). The project also has a new website at: Take a look and see what you think. It's runnin...
Project Split
by Aloac on March 02, 2010

Development of the Aciv library was moved from the Aciqra project to the I project to become Aciv/I a few months back. Since then, development of Aciqra has been highly reliant on this twin project to update and integrate new features for it to continue development therefore making the three projects essentially one mega-project which is essentially just the Caglow project. For organization pur...
