Version 101.4 of SAC is now available for download from URL
http://www.iris.edu/software/sac/.

For a summary of the changes between this version and 101.3b (released
August 2009), one can view the HISTORY file at
http://www.iris.edu/software/sac/HISTORY.txt. That file, as well as the
more detailed CHANGES file, can also be accessed from the IRIS
software/sac page.

As before, there are binary distributions for Sun Solaris, Linux (32 bit
and 64 bit) and Mac OS X. There are now two binary distributions for the
Mac: the 32-bit "fat binary" version as in previous releases that can run
on all OS levels, and a 64-bit version for Mac OS 10.6. While SAC will
run on OS 10.6 using the 32-bit distribution, the SAC libraries in that
distribution will not work in programs built using the 64-bit compilers
that are the default for OS 10.6.

For licensing reasons IRIS cannot provide a Windows Cygwin binary
distribution, but SAC can be built on Cygwin from a separately available
Cygwin source distribution. However, as of Cygwin version 1.7, it is
possible to build SAC on Cygwin using the normal source tarball.

A new feature that accompanies this release is that the SAC Users Manual
at http://www.iris.edu/software/sac/manual.html has been updated. The
format is different from before, but we think that everything is there
that was on the earlier set of pages, and -- unlike the earlier versions
of the manual -- the content of the pages are exactly the same as in the
help files that one accesses directly from within SAC. Please report any
questions/problems/suggestions regarding the manual to <snoke<at>vt.eud>.
(Unlike the releases of SAC, the manual can be corrected or updated very
easily!)
