SHG (spectroheliography) software release version 4.0

Post by thesmiths »

Compared to v3.8, this version has two new features:
  • The programme is now multilanguage.
  • The program now runs multithreaded.
The Python source code files can be found here: ... 4.0_Python

A Windows executable file has also been created and can be found here: ... .0_Windows

The Windows executable will run on both Windows 10 and 11. It does not need Python to be installed on the computer. It should run the same as the Python source code v4.0 but without the ability to make any changes to the code. For most people, this Windows executable version will be more convenient to use.

It is not possible to edit the translations or add new languages in the Windows executable version.

In the Python version, it is possible to edit the dict_lang files in the language_data folder or even add additional languages. New languages are added automatically at program startup. It is not necessary to add a country flag. Languages can also be deleted if they are not required.

The multithreading gives some speed improvement when running file batches, particularly for smaller video files. Larger files will tend to be limited by the read speed of the disk rather than the CPU.

Below are some examples of the new multilanguage user interface.
