NITRO has a C++ API that mirrors closely the C and Java interfaces. Objects in the C++ wrapper use reference counting on the C objects. These components are now available from SVN, and should be posted in the 2.0 final release binaries soon.

Version 1.5 has been released and tagged in tags/NITRO-1.5.

All core 2.0 development (formerly in the NITRO-2.0 branch) will now be in the trunk. The 2.0 development effort will have many API modifications, as well as numerous enhancements and added support. Stay tuned for more updates, including C++ bindings for 2.0.

1.5 Release Candidate 7

We have updated CMETAA to match the latest version of the spec. There are breaking changes to existing users of CMETAA, since our original TRE plugin had the incorrect names. We felt that the change was critical, though, especially since it fixed a duplicate key bug, in the LL MGRS corner (note also that the spec is inconsistent here). If you have a critical release that incorporates this TRE (and you are actively using it), we recommend that you either 1) Not updated to RC7 from RC6, or 2) replace with your own prebuilt version that does not have these changes.
