Release Notes: This release adds improved cross-compiling support and numerous bugfixes.
Release Notes: A 32-bit limitation on low-level table reads was removed. Much faster byte-swapping algorithms were implemented, accelerating FITS on little-endian machines. Data type conversion on losslessly compressed files was improved. Support for IBM System Z mainframes was improved. Numerous bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: This release restores support for tile compression of 1-byte integer images. It modifies the command line parsing routine to perform more rigorous checks to determine if the token can be interpreted as a number or not. It adds support for reading and writing large FITS files (> 2.1 GB) when building CFITSIO using Microsoft Visual C++ on Windows platforms. There are numerous bugfixes.
Release Notes: In cases where an image tile cannot be quantized, the floating-point pixel values will be losslessly compressed with gzip before writing them to the tile-compressed file. Significant internal changes have been made to the structure of the tile compression and uncompression routines to make them more modular and easier to maintain. The ffiter function has been modified to properly clean up allocated memory if an error occurs.
Release Notes: Bugfixes and minor enhancements were made.
Release Notes: This release adds the ability to uncompress images as tiles. There are minor bugfixes.
Release Notes: Minor enhancements were made, including to the compression code. Minor bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: This release adds support for threading under Unix.
Release Notes: Threading was added via pthreads and also via OpenMP. Support was added for compressed unsigned 16-bit integer images with PLIO and stream:// drivers for stdin/stdout. The code when tile compressing real*4 images was optimized. Numerous bugfixes and minor enhancements were made.
Release Notes: This release fixes compiler warnings and assorted bugs. It adds support for reading FITS format region files (in addition to the ASCII format that was previously supported).
