|SOFIA 1.1 release - HI Source Finding|
|by Tobias Westmeier (UWA)|
|The SoFiA team is pleased to announce the
release of SoFiA 1.1, the latest stable version of the HI Source Finding
Application, which is now available for download at https://github.com/SoFiA-Admin/SoFiA/releases/tag/v1.1.0. |
The new SoFiA release introduces a few new features and comes with a large number of improvements and bug fixes. The most notable new features include better handling of reliability calculation, the option to discard negative signals, and a new image viewer built into the GUI that allows output data products from SoFiA to be inspected in situ.
In addition, a large number of bugs has been fixed, including the handling of cubelets, moment maps and 4-D FITS cubes, and the removal of two errors in the linker module. Other changes include the ability to compile SoFiA with the Clang compiler, dropping the GSL dependency while adding a dependency on zlib, and the requirement of Python 2.7 to run SoFiA.
More information about the software, including installation instructions, a basic tutorial and a small test data set, is available from the SoFiA wiki on GitHub.
