What's New in This Release: [ read full changelog ]
· Several improvements now take this version of the library beyond the Naval Observatory's official “3.1” on which this release is based: Python 3 compatibility; Python access to the ephem_close() routine inside the eph_manager module; a fix for the eph_manager.state() function, which previously would always raise an exception if invoked; and both C code fixes recommended in the NOVAS FAQ, one that changes the eph_manager.c file, and the other that changes the novas.c file.
