Hi all,

At long last there is a news update on the orbit site. Looks like more waiting.


October 21, 2005
In the last month, we've not been able to work on [email protected] on a daily basis for various reasons, but still some important results have been achieved. The most important improvements to [email protected] are the result of the collaboration with Pan-STARRS (http://pan-starrs.ifa.hawaii.edu/public/) researchers in order to be ready to analyze their observations as soon as their survey starts (first light for PS1 prototype is scheduled for early 2006) and the observations are made publicly available. This requires substantial science-code development, and the results so far are extremely positive. As the first wave of WU demonstrated, the code based on ORSA works correctly on remote clients (only Linux platform tested for the moment). In order to provide WUs on a daily basis, we are developing a science-database and the relative management code. This will take a fair amount of time, about two more months of work. For this reason, the beta phase will be postponed to early 2006. Clients for Windows and Mac OS X will be provided as soon as the scientific application is considered sufficiently stable on the Linux platform. All the clients will be provided and tested during the alpha phase, to fix all the major problems before the beta phase.

Orbit have announced that they have some funding, at very long last. We should see something in June, but don't hold your breath. They need more.

This is just a quick and short message, as more details will follow shortly on the front page. We just received word that [email protected] has been selected for funding by NASA. This means that in a few months we will be able to work at this project with a dedicated time of at least 4 months per year, for three consecutive years. I'm extremely thrilled by this opportunity, and I thank NASA for making this possible, and all the users for their patience and belief in this project, because... WE GOT FUNDED!!!!!! :-D

Finally on the move ! But I won't go into orbit about it until I see the wu's coming down.

Yep. And I want to know the plans for applications. They had only linux in the past. But I'm there, whatever they decide to do.
