Topic 192984

A new Windows App is available from our Beta Test Page.

A problem affecting the cross-platform compatibility we have been digging for for two weeks has finally been tracked down and fixed. In principle only the Windows App needs to be changed, as its seems to be bound to the MS Compiler.

An additional feature of this App is some more sanity checking of some input files (ephemeris files "earth" and "sun"), so that a corrupted file is detected early and no wrong information is propagated into the computation (usually causing Client Errors later).

Speed, again, shouldn't have changed compare to the current official App.

(most of the proejct team is travelling to a meeting the next days and may have poor internet connectivity. I added a link to the previous Beta App on the page)

There are 10^11 stars in the galaxy. That used to be a huge number. But it's only a hundred billion. It's less than the national deficit! We used to call them astronomical numbers. Now we should call them economical numbers. - Richard Feynman

Compared to which?

The 25% slowdown of AMD compared to Intel CPUs of 4.17 has been fixed in 4.24. Compared to 4.24 the 4.30 shouldn't show a noticeable difference in speed.
