Expectations for the next big release

Hi there,

Quick questions :

  • Do you have an estimate of a date for the release of Orekit 12.0 or not yet? No pressure, it’s just to know if we wait for it or if we upgrade Orekit from 11.2 to 11.3 in the meantime. :slight_smile:
  • Is there a list of the coming features in the 12.0 version ?

I looked a bit in the forum/website/gitlab but couldn’t find those informations.
Thanks in advance and have a nice day !

Hi @nrol

No estimation now :slight_smile: Major releases usually take a lot of development time since we want to include all the required API changes.

For a preliminary program, you can follow the 12.0 milestone on the Gitlab repository.

Best regards,


Hello there,

I would add that, as Bryan told me a while ago, any Orekit user can give a “thumps up” to an open issue on gitlab that they find particularly interesting to be solved in the future (no matter the milestone). That could help the Dev team adjust the backlog for the next release.
