Version 2.0

List of Issues Resolved

  • Emergency minor release 2.0.1 on 13-NOV-2015 to fix the exponent of Planck's constant. #175
  • ucum-essence.xml had elements in no name space. This was obviously a bug. It was resolved, not an emergency, but would have been more difficult to hold this minor fix back until 2.1 #157

Changed Units

Exact Constants

The following units are modified to turn constants which were stated of limited precision to exact. This is indicated by removing the decimal point from the number. If a number has a decimal point, it is considered having this number of significant digits, hence limited precision. If there is no decimal point (and magnitude adjusted in the exponent) it is considered exact.

[g] 980665e-5 (was: 9.80665) m/s2 metric standard acceleration of free fall
m[H2O] 980665e-5 (was 9.80665) kPa metric meter of water column
Ci 37e9 (was: 3.7e10) Bq metric Curie
[car_m] 2e-1 (was: 0.2) g nonmetric metric carat

Corrected Constants

[Ch] 1 mm/3 (was: mm/[pi]) nonmetric Charrière
AU 149597.870691 Mm nonmetric astronomic unit
[drp] 1 ml/20 (was: ml/12) nonmetric drop

Version 1.8.2

The major change of this release is the establishment of a class of "arbitrary units" which are no longer simply dimensionless. This is to protect the false assumption that one could convert measurement values expressed in some arbitrary unit into one in another arbitrary or dimensionless units.
