Re: [Orekit Developers] Preparation for next release

With the new 2D interpolators in Apache Math we will probably want to make the change to use that for the FixedTropospheric classes.  The old bi-cubic interpolator could be turning seriously wrong numbers.  I have an item on our internal JIRA for fixing that once the new math is incorporated and then updating the test.  I can break off time to do that this week or next.

Hi all,

We are planning to release the next version of Orekit soon. This will be
a major release: 7.0. This version mainly includes the complete DSST
semi-analytical propagator, as the project to include short periodics
terms has been a success, and it also includes the extension to second
order derivatives for many models (Cartesian coordinates, angular
coordinates, attitude modes, ...).

I think the current status is feature-complete. We need to update to the
new version of Apache Commons Math (3.4 will hopefully been released
very soon now). This version brings corrections useful for Orekit. We
also need to remove old deprecated methods and classes, as
we can do on a major version release.

If you think anything else should be included for 7.0, please chime in.
Remember that we can introduce incompatible changes in a major release
like 7.0, but once it is out we will not be able to introduce such
changes in 7.X and will have to wait for 8.0. So if you need some
breaking new feature, now is the time to introduce it.

best regards,
