Future developments

Spectrophotometry and wavelength calibration is undergoing improvement. The proper use of grism-specific CAL routines to be introduced. Further tests, checks and improvements of the spectra extraction algorithms will be made. An interactive task for visual inspection and spectral extraction is being developed. Spectrum smoothing possibility to be introduced. Coincidence loss correction to be included.
