I created this topic in order to collect your opinion about the next version of Orekit (minor or major version, final program, etc.). Before giving your opinion, please find the current status below.
Already developed features:
- Trajectories around Lagrangian point using CR3BP model.
- Improved phase measurement (cycle-slip detection, new ambiguity resolution methods, phase measurement modifiers)
- Support for CCSDS ADM files
- Time span drag force model
- Time span tropospheric model
- Estimated ionospheric model
- Several bug fixed
Features that are currently developed and can be added to the previous program:
Here my opinion:
Looking at the program, I think we have an amazing program to do the next release soon. The main advantage of the developed feature is that there is no API changes. Therefore, next version can be a minor version.
The advantage of doing the next release soon is that we can start the development of the next major release soon. This allow to start the development of the multi-module architecture just after the next release (i.e. beginning of June).
That is why I think we can release the next version of Orekit (i.e. 10.2) for the end of May. Final program can be exactly the previous points with some other issues fixed (for instance #674, #667, #662, #651). If you want to fix other issues for 10.2 release do not hesitate to add them to the list.
This is just my opinion. Your opinion is important.
