Version changes

Note: this is not completely kept up to date -- sorry!

Version 1.10 to 1.11 (Jan 17, 2008)

  • Now linked with psrchive software
  • Have removed references to numerical recipes in the main code
  • Fixed SKIP ... NOSKIP so that it correctly deals with INCLUDE commands
  • Fixed MODE 1 in par files
  • Updated plk so that it now uses setup files in order to define fonts and colours
  • Fixed plotting versus pulse phase in plk
  • Added Hartebeesthoek into the observatories.dat file
  • Added Westerbork into the observatories.dat file
  • A new solar wind model (You et al.) - access using SWM 1 in par file
  • Added a simple "readParfile" function that allows simple integration of tempo2 with psrchive
  • The default planetary ephemeris is now DE405
  • Fixed up new version of the $TEMPO2/earth/ file
  • Fixed up a bug when fitting for jumps (problem occurred if you had a jump, but didn't fit for it)
  • plk: Fixed issue with highlighted points not working after clicking of "restart"
  • plk: Updated so that you can plot the residuals versus a flag parameter's values

Version 1.9 to 1.10 (June 28, 2007)

  • MODE 1 now added in parameter file when writing out a new file
  • Added Hartebeesthoek into the observatories.dat file
  • Added Westerbork into the observatories.dat file
  • Fixed issue in plk with highlighted points not working after clicking on "restart"
  • Updated plk so that you can plot the residuals versus a flag parameter's alues
  • Fixed up compilation on 64bit machines
  • Added fake and errors into the default plugins available from the download

Version 1.8 to 1.9 (Sept 27, 2006)

  • Now have pbdot/xdot in standard units (not 10^-12).
  • If ephver 2 is in the parameter file then the tempo1 emulation mode is automatically used.
  • Ephver 5 has been introduced and will be included in all tempo2 ephemeris files
  • Many other changes and bug-fixes to correspond with the tempo2 publications

Version 1.7 to 1.8 (March 15, 2006)

More small changes prior to acceptance of the first tempo2 paper for publication

Version 1.6 to 1.7 (February 10, 2006)

More small changes prior to submitting the first tempo2 paper for publication.

Version 1.5 to 1.6 (December 19, 2005)

Numerous small changes and updates in order to fix bugs that have been found.

Version 1.4 to 1.5 (September 30, 2005)

Numerous changes mainly for the coding. All parameters are now stored as arrays enabling as many glitch parameters, DM derivatives, frequency derivatives etc. as memory will allow. Various other updates including the addition of the DDS model.

Version 1.3 to 1.4 (August 15, 2005)

Numerous changes. NOTE: if something seems broken, try tempo2 -tempo1 and go from there!

  • Use TCB instead of TDB. This makes tempo2 incompatible with tempo1 pulsar ephemerides, which don't use SI units! Use tempo2 -gr transform oldfile.par newfile.par to convert, or put UNITS TDB in the par file. You can also use tempo2 -tempo1, though this turns also off several newly modelled effects at the sub-100-ns level, listed below
  • Tropospheric delay modelling
  • IAU 2000 precession-nutation and polar motion
  • IERS C.04 Earth orientation parameters
  • Irwin & Fukushima (1999) time ephemeris
  • Differential Einstein delay correction to observing frequency
  • Various new plugins

Version 1.2 to 1.3 (June 09, 2005)

Various changes including

  • Removed necessity to calculate the position of the Earth-Moon barycentre
  • Implemented a first attempt at the DDK binary model
  • Implemented a DMEPOCH parameter
  • Added the Shapiro delay due to all the gas planets
  • Updated reading the parameter file to produce a warning (not an error) if a parameter is not found.

Version 1.1 to 1.2 (May 30, 2005)

  • Updated fitting for F5 to F12 frequency terms
  • Give warning and approximate conversion if observatory codes given in geodetic coordinates.

Version 1.0 to 1.1

  • Fixed reading Princeton format if DM change not given
  • Ability to place MODE flag in the parameter file, warning given if MODE flag is placed in TOA file.
  • Checking to see whether memory can be allocated for multiple pulsars
  • Improved analysis of sinusoidal fitting to whiten data
