The annual public release of ESO VLT/VLTI instrument data reduction software packages is scheduled for end of May 2024. Pre-built packages will be provided for Fedora 38 and 39 and on a best effort basis Fedora 40 (to be released in April) may be added later during 2024. For macOS, installation via MacPorts is supported and recommended.

The supported platforms will be the following:
