NASAView is a PDS archive product display program that runs on multiple platforms in a GUI environment. This application was built using the Label Library Light (L3), Object Access Library (OAL) and the XVT Development Solution for C package. Label Library Light parses PDS ODL labels and creates an in-memory representation of the label information. The Object Access Library uses the parse tree and accesses the actual PDS object. The XVT Development solution supplies the cross-platform GUI support and an object-oriented environment.

2016-09-01, MC(EN) Updated;
This is a maintenance release of NASAView correcting a number of issues including fixing support for handling file names greater than 31 characters on Mac OS X platforms.
For more details, please see the Release Notes section of the NASAView documentation.
Newer versions of Linux (e.g., RedHat, CentOS, etc.) are shipping with version 2.3.X of the Motif library. The Linux binaries listed above only support version 2.2.X of Motif. In our testing of NASAView with the newer version of Motif, we have discovered and reported a bug in Motif which causes a refresh issue when displaying labels through the Full Label menu option in NASAView. Once an official release of Motif that includes fixes for these bugs is available, we will test and release an updated version of NASAView that supports this newer version of Motif.
