Name: units Distribution: openSUSE Tumbleweed
Version: 2.23 Vendor: openSUSE
Release: 2.1 Build date: Tue Feb 27 22:51:19 2024
Group: Productivity/Scientific/Physics Build host: i02-armsrv1

Summary: Conversion Utility
The 'units' program converts quantities expressed in various scales to
their equivalents in other scales.

Units can also convert temperature values (Fahrenheit to Celsius, for
example) but this needs a slightly different input syntax. See the man
page for details.






* Mon Feb 26 2024
  - remove dependency on /usr/bin/python3 using
    %python3_fix_shebang macro, [bsc#1212476]
* Mon Feb 19 2024 Andreas Stieger <>
  - units 2.23:
    * molarvolume changed to have dimensions of m^3/mol for
      consistency with NIST
    * Corrected erroneous definitions of moondist_min and
    * Added atomic masses for all isotopes of all elements in
    * Added US Consumer Price index in cpi.units, which is updated
      monthly by units_cur.  Inflation calculations are possible with
      dollars_in() or inflation_since() and other related nonlinear
    * Made exchangerate-api the default currency server
    * Adjusted US survey units to use the international foot by
    default due to deprecation of the US survey foot
    * abs() function works on units with dimensions, like -27 degrees.
    * Support unicode operators for division and multiplication
    * Ignore QUIT signal, which is sent by Ctrl-Backslash and Ctrl-4.
    * Suppress repeated unit values in display of unit definitions
    * Unit reductions that take more than 1000 steps now give a
      "circular reference" error.
    * More detailed reporting from the --check (-c) option.
    * Fixed bug in positioning pointer to errors in input when the
      input has leading spaces.
    * Fixed parser memory leak with numbers too large or small for
      type double.
    * Allow multiple divisions in expressions that start with "/",
      e.g. "/m/s"
* Sun Dec 25 2022 Andreas Stieger <>
  - units 2.22:
    * Fixed bug: segfault on inverse conversions of tables in verbose
    * Added support for ExchangeRate-API in units_cur
    * Minor unit definition fixes and updates, including updates to
      planetary data and a change in Rinfinity and hartree to
      increase accuracy.
    * Do not update currency.units at build
* Tue Jun 08 2021
  - require python3-requests [bsc#1186820]
* Thu Mar 11 2021
  - use python3 by home:lorenz
* Mon Nov 16 2020 Andreas Stieger <>
  - units 2.21:
    * Fix bug arising when some environment variables are undefined
    * Improve error reporting when input files are missing or invalid
  - remove obsolete texinfo macros on Factory
  - make the executable position independent
* Thu Oct 01 2020 Andreas Stieger <>
  - units 2.20:
    * Add abs(), ceil(), round(), floor(), Gamma(), lnGamma(),
      factorial(), erf() and erfc() functions.
    * Add densities of all of the elements
    * Add several new unit systems
    * Add --conformable option which noninteractively prints a list
      of all units conformable with a specified a specified unit
    * Invoke the pager more intelligently depending on the size of the
    * Fix bug where unit lists conversions displayed excess precision
      (e.g. non-integer output for integer input)
    * Display precision warning when conversion to unit lists uses
      all of the available precision
* Wed Jul 31 2019 Andreas Stieger <>
  - units 2.19:
    * Unit definitions updated to reflect new 2019 revisions to SI
      and the 2018 NIST CODATA.
    * Added definitions of country and USA state areas, and physical
      properties of selected woods.
    * Changes only to definitions.units in this release.
* Thu Oct 25 2018
  - units 2.18:
    * The units_cur script now supports multiple currency sources
    * Add hyperbolic functions: sinh, cosh, tanh, asinh, acosh, atanh
    * Add log to arbitrary integer bases: log3, log4, log72, etc.
    * Units can be redefined without a warning by adding '+' before
      the unit name in definitions.units.
    * Add 'quit' and 'exit' commands.
    * Add support for CGS electromagnetic units (activated using the
    - u option or the UNITS_SYSTEM environment variable)
    * Add !prompt command to add a prefix to the "You have:" prompt
    * Texts specified with !message appear in the log file
* Wed Jun 27 2018
  - units 2.17:
    * Updates to units database
    * Update units_cur to handle bad records returned by yahoo server
    * Move currency.units out of /usr/share because the file is not
      static and /usr/share is supposed to house static files.
      The new location is $sharedstatedir which may be /var/lib
