Zmanim API 1.3.0 Released

The Zmanim API version 1.3.0 was released on March 4th, 2013 כ״א אדר תשע״ג. Various changes in the new release VS the previous version 1.2.1 that was released in May 2010 can be seen below. This release includes beta support for Jewish Calendar calculations as well as a number of updated zmanim and refactored code. The Jewish Calendar support in the Zmanim API is based on Avrom Finkelstien’s HebrewDate project released in 2002. Unlike the Zmanim code, the Jewish calendar interfaces may change significantly in the future (see Jay Gindin’s various changes that may make it into this API) and should therefore be considered beta.

  1. Shalom,
    I am trying to develop a bash script to automatically play the weekly parsha and announce candle / havdalah times among other things. One of those is the actual time of the molad in Jerusalem. I have not been able to find any software like hdate that will calculate that on the fly. Is that something zmanim is able to do?
