PCRaster 4.3.1

PCRaster 4.3.1 is the currently maintained version.

This is a bug fix release for 4.3. We fixed:

  • Aguila: incorrect x-axis display for timeseries and less than three timesteps (#303)

  • Aguila: unhandled exception thrown instead of error messages on macOS (#302)

  • pcr.aguila: incorrect handling of function arguments (#325)

  • An initialisation error when paths in the environment variable PATH do not exist (#134)

  • Error checking for numpy2pcr (#317)

  • Redundant error output in PCRaster Modflow (#321)

  • Ignoring small well pumping rates (close to 0) in PCRaster Modflow (#324)


Straightforward with conda, see our tutorial.
