  Changes for SOFA Issue: 2015-02-09

 SOFA FORTRAN Library

  • [New Material] 2 routines, iau_G2ICRS and iau_ICRS2G, have been released for the new Galactic Coordinates section. They allow transformations to be made between the 1958 IAU galactic coordinate system and the ICRS.
  • [Update/Change] Updated iau_DAT to account for the leap second at the end of June 2015.
  • [Update/Change] Updated iau_CAL2JD.A value in a DATA-initialized array was being changed during execution. This had consequences for multi-thread code. The algorithm has been changed to avoid this difficulty.
  • [Update/Change] Changes to iau_C2IXYS, iau_GC2GDE, iau_RM2V and iau_RV2M. There was a test for zero that could potentially cause compiler warnings. The test has been changed.
  • [Update/Change] Update to t_sofa_f.for to accommodate the new routines.

 SOFA ANSI C Library

  • [New Material] 2 routines, iauG2icrs and iauIcrs2g, have been released for the new Galactic Coordinates section. They allow transformations to be made between the 1958 IAU galactic coordinate system and the ICRS.
  • [Update/Change] Updated iauDat to account for the leap second at the end of June 2015.
  • [Update/Change] Changes to iauC2ixys, iauGc2gde, iauRm2v and iauRv2m. There was a test for zero that could potentially cause compiler warnings. The test has been changed.
  • [Update/Change] Changes to sofa.h. Addition of the new functions, removal of duplicate functions. All functions are listed in the categories that are given on the website and in the manual.
  • [Update/Change] Update to t_sofa_c.c to accommodate the new routines.

 SOFA Documentation Files

  • [Update/Change] Minor changes to intro.lis.
