GetData 0.8.4 has been released. It may be downloaded from your local SourceForge mirror:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/getdata/files/getdata/0.8.4/

This release of GetData co-incides with a correction to the Dirfile Standards which hopefully clarifies the meaning of the final, optional parameter of a MPLEX definition, along with fixing the inconsistent behaviour in the library concerning the handling of this parameter. See the release notes for particulars.... read more

Also, since we had them lying around, this release introduces the MATLAB bindings for GetData. They're still somewhat experimental at this point, and have not been well tested; use with caution.... read more

GetData 0.7.2 released

GetData 0.7.2 has been released. It may be downloaded from your local SourceForget mirror:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/getdata/files/getdata/0.7.2/

GetData 0.7.2 is a bug-fix release, adding the documented but missing functionality allowing absolute paths in /INCLUDE directives, and a few other minor bugs.

More importantly, this release marks the introduction of a source release targeted at Microsoft Corporation's Visual C++ compiler. This package is largely due to the effort of Peter Kümmel, who ported the source code to MSVC and wrote the CMake build system used to create project files to build GetData. (You can also use it with MinGW.)... read more

GetData 0.7.0 released

GetData 0.7.0 has been released. It may be downloaded from your local SourceForge mirror:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/getdata/files/getdata/0.7.0/

GetData 0.7.0 comes with a large API change: almost every function in the C API has been renamed to provide better namespace encapsulation. This was required to build GetData on MacOS X. GetData is now supported under MacOS X and well as Cygwin and Win32 using MinGW. (Some work has been done to allow building GetData witn MSVC, but more work remains.)... read more

http://sourceforge.net/projects/getdata/files/getdata/0.6.1/

This is a minor bugfix release. It mostly fixes a few bugs in the build system; but if your copy of GetData built without issue, you don't have to worry about them. It also fixes potential segfaults in the Legacy API and the IDL bindings.

This release also removes the uncessesary inclusion of <complex.h> in getdata.h, which was causing trouble for some users.... read more

http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=229287&release_id=638941

This bug-fix release allows the full stop character "." in field names in certain situations (which is still a violation of Standards Version 6). This change is necessary for GetData to be able to read the BLAST flight data.... read more
