Downloading the Latest Stable Version
The latest stable version is available online
on Sourceforge for most desktop platforms. Diego Berge has generated RPMs
for a variety of Linux platforms starting with version 1.4.
The Stable Release is intended for general use. Each version is in the form of a tarball containing the platform independent GPSTk Project source code and supporting information. Additional files contain compiled binaries for several common platforms. MD5 and SHA1 hashes are provided in the Release Notes for each version.
GPSTk uses the GNU "standard" for naming releases, e.g. gpstk-1.1.07
. The first number is a major release identifier, the second is a revision, and the third is a patch level. After the version number will be a descriptor that indicates the contents of the particular file. The following descriptors are used:
| src || Platform independent source code of the GPSTk. |
| solaris.sparc || Sun Solaris Sparc compiled binaries |
| linux.x86_64 || Linux 64-bit compiled binaries |
| mac.osx || Mac OSX compiled binaries |
| win32 || Microsoft Windows 32-bit compiled binaries |
| win64 || Microsoft Windows 64-bit compiled binaries |
Obtaining the Latest Development Version
Currently, the latest development version of the GPSTk can only be obtained by downloading the latest stable release candidates for the specific platform.
ARL is currently working to set-up a Git Server to host the latest development version of the GPSTk, and will provide periodic status updates to the GPSTk community on its progress.
Latest Git Build Status
This table contains the build status of the source (in Git) on a number of platforms. The developers at Applied Research Laboratories attempt to regularly compile the source code on different platforms using CMake. The goal is to update this table every week with status reports for each platform tested. Hopefully this will aid the development team in finding bugs quickly and addressing them in a timely manner.
