@jankoh I think that the gnudatalanguage developers regard the RC's as of equal status to the 0.9x releases. (they just ran out of space at 0.99?).

Pushing release candidates is generally discouraged, so I didn't push the newer versions, but waited for a final release. I started a thread in aur-general about this, and there's different opinions about the topic. Still I prepared a 1.0.0-rc.3 version locally, and am currently testing. And a 1.0.0 final release is to be expected soon.

Thanks @Fixed,

I recently set up automatic build/test jobs using clean arch docker images as base. I also stumbled across a problem with ImageMagick, the package does not even combile on a clean system (opposed to your and my system). Since upstream GDL authors recommend using GraphicsMagick over ImageMagick, and GraphicsMagick is available in extra, I switched dependencies, so the package comiles again. If tests run fine, I will push an updated version. I also hope to be able to activate GDLs unit/integration tests at build time, but at the moment I'm not sure if they work on a headless system not having access to X...

Best, Jan

Attempt to run gdl produces:

$ gdl

gdl: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I uninstalled and re-installed GDL, no luck.

UPD: Sorry, mistakenly entered makepkg -Si. Entering makepkg -si compiled the package OK, now it works.

Maybe someone can help me with the following.

I am migrating from IDL to GDL, but the set of important functions, such as ts_smooth, median, smooth is not supported as in IDL. Those functions are related to smoothing of 1D noisy graphs.

Does anyone has a solution or a pointer?

Thank you very much for prompt action, everything works now!

Hey @Fixed,

the wxgtk-package has been renamed, I already uploaded a new revision to reflect the naming change. Unfortunaltely you will need to uninstall gnudatalanguage first, then perform the system upgrade, and after that reinstall the new version of gnudatalanguage.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

makepks -si for gdl fixed it.

Thank you, Bro!
