Hi Mabula - it's been over 2 months since the last update around APP 1.083 stable - can you give us some indication of when the next beta or the 1.083 stable will be out? Thanks!

Hi David @dsifry,

I am making good progress 😉

Further improvements have already been implemented for the Comet registration. Right now, I am working on the star analysis module, then I need to do some work still on the new Star Reducer Tool. When that is done, the stable release will come out. Hopefully, it will be within anywhere between 1-4 weeks I think. This is a wide timeframe, but as it guess in development, there can always be unexpected/unforeseen issues that I might want to fix for the stable release as well.

Hi Mabula,

Thanks for the update!

Is there maybe still something to be "polished" in the star-reducer tool that

might cause APP to crash?

Just tried on an image and @95% done with the calculation it just hanged,

no response anymore.

Hope to see the improved version soon!

Regards,

Mert

run out of memory: ( my laptop has 8Gb, APP is allowed to use 7Gb)

Hi @mabula-admin (Mabula)!

 

Just wanted to check in on the status of 1.083 - either a new stable beta, or the release. About four weeks ago, you said 1-4 weeks, and I know things often take longer than we think, but any update you can give on a release timeframe would be helpful!

Hi David! I know Mabula is working on it (obviously 🙂 ), but didn't get a solid release date. Might be the optimizations to e.g. the star reducer is taking a bit more time than expected. We notified Mabula, so I hope he can give some more details on it.

Hi @mabula-admin - Any update on beta3? It's been over a year since we had a stable point release, and weeks since your last update, and while I love APP, it's getting frustrating to not hear from you with some more detailed plans about when we'll have the next stable release ready. 

Thanks.

Dave

Hi David @dsifry,

I am working as hard as I can, and will release it soon. Should not be any more months, only couple of weeks now... work is progressing well 😉 Sorry to keep you all waiting. After the 1.083 release, I will revert to the monthly release cycle that we had before for sure !

@mabula-admin When will you continue working on comet stacking? Was star removal part of the path to comet stacking?

The star removal algorithm can be part of that yes, these two are quite a lot of work to get right, which is why 1.083 is taking quite some time. But when those technologies are implemented well, that should allow for a proper basis to iterate more frequently again.
