ChangesIntroduced in V5.6-1

The following describes the most significant changes which occurred in the AST library between versions V5.6-0 and V5.6-1:

  1. Tables can now have any number of parameters describing the global properties of the Table.

  2. Frames now interpret the unit string ``A'' as meaning ``Ampere'' rather than ``Angstrom'', as specified by FITS-WCS paper I.

  3. A bug has been fixed in the astFindFrame method that allowed a template Frame of a more specialised class to match a target frame of a less specialised class. For example, this bug would allow a template SkyFrame to match a target Frame. This no longer happens.
