HiPERCAM pipeline news¶
This page documents important changes in the pipeline, as a help to whether you should update. I have revised how I list updates here and from now on intend just to add new items when the first or second number in the version changes, hence I have scrubbed old items (full lists of past changes can be seen on github in any case). NB the version of these docs may reflect a development version subsequent to the most recent release and hence will appear to be one click on.
