Siril, a free astronomical image processing software
Siril is meant to be Iris for Linux (sirI-L). It is an astronomical image processing tool, able to convert, pre-process images, help aligning them automatically or manually, stack them and enhance final images. In 2017, is also begins to work on Mac OS X and Windows.
One month after the release of the first beta version of Siril 1.0,
which was largely adopted and praised by users, we are releasing a second beta version, with number 0.99.6. It fixes important issues that were found in the previous release, 0.99.4, thanks to the kind feedback of our community. It has already been tested by many users and should
work in most cases. Remember this is a beta version, but we consider it already better than the previous stable version, the 0.9.12.
If you have issues with it or find bugs, we would be very grateful if
you could contact us or report them to our bug system tracker.
