AppLauncher version 1.1.5

  • Features:
    • Added a broadcasted message filter (with its preference) to avoid multiple application startup simultaneously.

    • Fixed redundant confirmation when AppLauncher's window is closed.

AppLauncher version 1.1.3

  • Changes:
    • Minor changes related to frame handling (title, size).

AppLauncher version 1.1.7

  • Changes:
    • General application registry update.
    • Added ETC-42, OiDB, OImaging applications.
    • Cassis, ETC-42, AMDA are now displayed on fresh installations.
  • Bug fixes:
    • Improve JAVAWS compatibility with non official jdk
    • Do not show the feedback report but display the message pane if a timeout occured while performing JNLP/SAMP auto-test.

SearchCal version 5.0.1

  • Features:
    • Updated documentation and release notes

SearchCal version 4.5

  • Features:
    • Added support for J and H bands in faint mode.
    • Display computed Icous magnitude instead of I (johnson) in GUI.
    • Added an 'Open Recent' menu.
    • Improved JTable look and feel (auto size columns, number formatter and right alignment).
    • Enabled GZip compression by default when saving a calibrator list (scvot.gz).
  • Changes:
    • Increased the minimum required java version from 1.5 to 1.6 (aka java 6)
    • Enhanced cross-match algorithm to use proper motions (ASCC, HIP2 or USNO) when querying and matching other catalogs (2MASS, Denis, AKARI).
    • Added query to HIP2 'Hipparcos, the New Reduction (van Leeuwen, 2007)' to get more accurate star properties (Ra/Dec, proper motion, parallax).
    • Added duplicated stars filter on the ASCC catalog (distance less than 10 arcsec) in bright scenario.
    • Modified Bright K scenario to use a larger constraint on V band (Kmaxi + 4 to get more giant stars).
    • Modified rule to determine the mean diameter OK (now require 3 diameters, BVK in bright and JHK in faint).
    • Compute all possible diameters in both bright and faint scenarii.
    • Check the validity domain of each color index before computing its corresponding angular diameter.
    • Check 2MASS quality flag (Qflg) to discard invalid J, H or K magnitudes ('U' or 'X' cases only; 'A' to 'E' are still considered valid).
    • Fixed 2MASS query in bright scenario to get also USNO optical sources (opt=[TU]) as done in faint scenario.
    • Added HIP2 catalog into legend.
    • Update the progress bar while loading a large calibrator list (JSDC catalog).
    • Enhanced performance of the HTML and CSV exports.
    • Optimized filter processing.
    • Enhanced performance when using the Delete action.
    • Improved global performance when handling large dataset (JSDC catalog).
  • Bug fixes:
    • Check compatibility of square visibilities with/without interstellar absportion in faint scenario (i.e. reject stars when vis2 are incompatible : DIAM_FLAG = NOK).
    • Fixed interstellar absorption (AV) correction on K and V magnitudes in faint scenario.
    • Fixed cross-matches near celestian poles in the distance filter.
    • Fixed data change detection for user confirmation before loosing changes.
    • Fixed missing Hot News/Release Notes/FAQ links in Help menu.
  • Developer notes:
    • New VOTable format: confidences have integer types, flags move to boolean type (plxFlag, diamFlag, deletedFlag)
    • New diam_count column to count number of consistent computed diameters
    • Modified Bright K and Faint K scenarii to use only one primary request (ASCC and 2MASS respectively) and other catalogs as secondary requests (proper motion handling).
    • Always compute galactic coordinates (i.e. do not retrieve them anymore from catalogs 2MASS or HIPPARCOS).
    • Improved performance on JTable cell renderer.
    • Use a JPEG icon instead of the PNG to work around a known bug on Mac OS X / Java7.
    • Optimized filter processing (use add instead of remove).
    • Added VOTable PARAM to embed server and GUI version numbers.
    • Fixed TABLE nrows attribute when saving a calibrator list.
    • Upgraded SAVOT VOTable library (4.0) with improved overall performance and GZip compression support.

SearchCal version 5.0

  • Features:
    • Dynamically compute vis2 / vis2Err and dist columns when the user changes either the instrumental parameter or the science object (before filtering and sorting).
  • Changes:
    • Public release for SearchCal 5.0
    • First beta release for SearchCal 5.0
    • Improved the column sorting to maintain its state accross user interactions
    • Added new filter on both chi2 and relative error.
    • Added new filter on Simbad's Object types (algol, mira ...) when known (JSDC).
    • Use the new JSDC query scenario = fast cone search and magnitude filter implemented by the new SearchCal Server
    • Upgraded SearchCal Server: Bright and Faint query modes now use the JSDC V2 (490 000 stars) and complementary data (2M stars)
    • Faint mode rewritten to estimate the mean diameter and its error by using the complete spectral type range (min chi2)
    • New Polynomial relations implemented (V-J, V-H, V-K) base on Alain Chelli's paper
    • Improved Star resolver: report ambiguous matches (more than 1 object per identifier), better timeout settings (3s for connection) ...
    • Fixed the magnitude filter to reject stars where the magnitude is msising for the selected band
    • Updated stellar diameter relations (JSDC v2)
    • Increased maximum diffRA to 6H ie 360 min.
    • Increased maximum query size to 5000 stars
    • Updated server version to 5.0.0: new stellar diameter relations, totally rewritten rigourous error propagation fit AV / distance using photometry
  • Bug fixes:
    • Fixed server crash occuring when the client performs an http retry query (firewall / proxy timeout).
