Orekit Python Wrapper version 8.0 released

Added by Petrus Hyvönen about 1 year ago

This release of the python wrapper for orekit is based on orekit version 8.0, providing a near-identical interface to orekit in python v2.7 as in java.

Information about the orekit 8.0 release is available at:

This new orekit version depends on the Hipparchus mathematical library instead of the previous Apache Commons Math.
With this change, Java version 8 is required.

The easiest way to install the orekit python wrapper is likely in the anaconda python v2.7 distribution where pre-built packages are made for linux, windows-64 bit and mac. The conda packages are available at: https://anaconda.org/ssc/orekit
