Changes for version v4.3.1.0 - 2024-03-01

    • The default version of CFITSIO installed has changed from "any version greater or equal to this distribution's version" to "the version which exactly matches this distribution's version" (ignoring the last stanza in the distriution's version)
      • The previous behavior was based on the fact that CFITSIO's API is very backwards compatible, so pulling in a newer version wasn't harmful (except maybe if you're relying upon buggy behavior which is fixed in a newer version).
      • However, upstream CFITSIO's build process may change for later versions, and this module will begin to fail to build through no fault of its own, breaking dependencies.
      • Forcing an exact version of CFITSIO to be installed should alleviate this.
