Orekit Python Wrapper version 9.0 released
The python wrapped version of orekit 9.0 is now available, containing all the updates in the orekit 9.0 java version. The pure source code is available in the repo but I strongly recommend to use conda packages if possible, it can sometimes be tricky to get all the wrapping to compile. The new version is automatically built for windows, mac and linux for python 2.7, 3.5 and 3.6 and placed on the conda-forge channel.
The new conda package is depending on the JCC package that will automatically be installed and has scripts that sets the needed environment variables when the conda environment is activated. Note that this means that external scripts needs to activate the conda environment prior to running python or by using "conda-wrappers". This gives a cleaner interaction with the environment than then 8.0 version that would affect PATH variables on windows.
To install orekit python in anaconda, type:
conda install -c conda-forge orekit
Packages for manual download are available at: https://anaconda.org/conda-forge/orekit
Limited documentation and examples for the wrapper is available at: https://www.orekit.org/forge/projects/orekit-python-wrapper
