The package has been updated, including a small patch to be compatible with WCSlib≥4.24.

Quick new version integrating a patch to fix a bug with python 3.4 which prevented the module from being imported.

Version bump for python 3.4.

Following the comment from migueldvb, I have updated various package names in the depends and conflicts sections.

The package python3-h5py does not exist, should that dependency be replaced by python-h5py?

Finally astropy 0.3 is out. It solves the problem of incompatibility with cfitsio that prevented astropy 0.2 from building correctly when using external packages. Unfortunately, the legacy option is now gone. This means that you cannot do an "import pyfits" anymore now. Porting could be as simple as "import as pyfits". Otherwise the dependencies have been updated, using erfa rather than sofa and the licenses are now properly included. Let me know if you encounter any problem.

Thanks for the notification. The update may take a little while as there is an incompatbility with arch's current cfitsio version. It has been reported and is being dealt with at the moment. One workaround would be to use the libraries shipped with astropy, removing the --use-system-libraries flag in the PKGBUILD file but I do not like the idea of having multiple versions of the same lib installed.

Thanks for maintaining this!

The dependency python3-h5py should be changed to python-h5py.
