Support for XA10A
The Yarra client package does now support the software version XA10A (for the MAGNETOM Vida). To use Yarra under this software version, it is necessary to install the code-signing certificate. Please contact us to obtain the certificate file.
New Server Version 0.95+
Starting with YarraServer version 0.95, the WebGUI is now part of the server package and is not distributed separately anymore. You can still find the previous binary packages in the Version History. YarraServer 0.95 (and higher) requires the GCC 4.8 runtime libraries. If your server is running on Ubuntu 12.04, it is necessary to upgrade the GCC compiler, as described here.
Active Development Phase
Please note that Yarra is still under active development. The packages provided here are an early development release and many functions are still missing. Please use with caution.
