Latest release

What’s new

PCRaster 4.1.0 is the current release. These are the most important changes:

  • On Windows, shared libraries are now installed in a separate directory, which does not need to be in the PATH environment variable. This will lower the chance of conflicts with shared libraries shipped with other software.
  • Dropped support for 32 bit Windows.
  • In Python scripts PCRaster data types can now be serialized by the pickle module.

For a detailed list of the changes check the changes page.
