Version 101.4 of SAC is now available for download from URL

For a summary of the changes between this version and 101.3b (released
August 2009), one can view the HISTORY file at That file, as well as the
more detailed CHANGES file, can also be accessed from the IRIS
software/sac page.

As before, there are binary distributions for Sun Solaris, Linux (32 bit
and 64 bit) and Mac OS X. There are now two binary distributions for the
Mac: the 32-bit "fat binary" version as in previous releases that can run
on all OS levels, and a 64-bit version for Mac OS 10.6. While SAC will
run on OS 10.6 using the 32-bit distribution, the SAC libraries in that
distribution will not work in programs built using the 64-bit compilers
that are the default for OS 10.6.

For licensing reasons IRIS cannot provide a Windows Cygwin binary
distribution, but SAC can be built on Cygwin from a separately available
Cygwin source distribution. However, as of Cygwin version 1.7, it is
possible to build SAC on Cygwin using the normal source tarball.

A new feature that accompanies this release is that the SAC Users Manual
at has been updated. The
format is different from before, but we think that everything is there
that was on the earlier set of pages, and -- unlike the earlier versions
of the manual -- the content of the pages are exactly the same as in the
help files that one accesses directly from within SAC. Please report any
questions/problems/suggestions regarding the manual to <snoke<at>vt.eud>.
(Unlike the releases of SAC, the manual can be corrected or updated very
