Scisoft is a project within ESO to provide a collection of astronomical software utilities in a uniform way at all ESO sites, and to make them available to the worldwide community. It was developed by ESO to run on Linux computers and primarily for internal use, but the collection is also freely distributed externally.

We are pleased to announce that a new version, Scisoft 8, built for 64-bit Fedora 20 Linux, is now available and can be downloaded from the Scisoft project page. It should also be possible to install this version on other comparable systems. Enquiries should be sent to

Note that the Mac version of Scisoft for OSX is a separate external project, not affiliated with ESO.
