* Summary of important changes

The main improvements of this release can be summarized as follows:

** General

* a new task parameter interface has been implemented - this may necessitate 
updating your current "old" scripts. See under parameter interface below.

* graphical user interfaces have been upgraded. In xmmselect it is possible now
to fix basic filtering criteria and derive from a reduced event list in memory
images, spectra, etc, without running over the whole event list. This makes 
xmmselect much faster for most purposes. The Dataset Browser offers
a refresh button, for updating the content of the directories searched. 

** EPIC:

* adequate handling of the instrument optical axis. This improves the 
vignetting correction significantly, even for on-axis sources. 

* exposure maps now correctly reflect spatial effect of event flag 
selection, and out-of-time and dead-time corrections are now applied. EPIC 
source lists now have correct maximum likelihood values (in all previous 
version these were >=2 times too large). 



*** MOS specific

- blanking of bad-energy columns and correct handling as dead areas

- filtering and removal of flickering pixels, decreasing significantly 
the noise at low energies.

- improvement in handling of MOS timing mode CTI.

- ebadpixupdate: New SAS tasks that allows manipulations of bad 
pixels at the level of the calibrated events list


*** PN specific:

- epreject: New SAS task which corrects shifts in the energy scale of 
specific pixels due to high-energy particles hitting the EPIC PN detector 
during offset map calculation and suppresses detector noise at low energies 
by statistical flagging events based on the known noise properties of the 
lowest energy channels. In the case of timing mode data, flagging of soft 
flare events may be performed.
 
- epatplot: The optional input of a background eventset now allows the 
determination of background-subtracted pattern fractions. This is useful, e.g., 
in the case of extended source analysis or close to spectral background features.


- badpixfind: The task now permits bad pixel searching on calibrated 
multi-chip eventsets(e.g. final pipeline product). Previous versions only
operated on raw event lists.


** RGS: an alternative new method for signal offset subtraction is offered in
rgsenergy. Files containing averaged offset signals for each three 
consecutive revolutions are new constituents of the Observation Data File (ODF). 
They make possible the subtraction of the offset signal on a pixel-by-pixel 
basis, which should be more accurate than subtracting a single value per CCD 
readout node (this continues to be the default method in rgsenergy). 
For older ODFs those new constituents can be retrieved from the repository
under (ftp://xmm.esac.esa.int/pub/RGS/OFFSET/). A README file located in this
directory gives further details.

** OM: 

- grism data processing is now enabled.

This new version of SAS contains by the first time utilities to deal with
data obtained with the OM grisms. A new metatask, omgchain, can be 
used to extract and automatically calibrate spectra produced by OM grisms. 

These OM data are taken in Image Mode. Hence omgchain uses already 
existing tasks, such as omprep and ommodmap, to handle 
housekeeping information and to perform some corrections as the "modulo 8" 
noise reduction. Also omdetect is used to find the spectra, zero and 
first orders, producing a source list.

Some new tasks are grism specific. omgprep, is used to correct for 
geometric distortion of the detector and to rotate the image so as to have the 
dispersion direction aligned with the image Y axis. omgprep performs 
the spectral extraction and the wavelength and flux calibration. Finally, the 
extracted spectra are plotted using omgplot.

A new, interactive task, omgsource, allows the user to select with the 
cursor the spectrum to be extracted.

- photometric calibration.

OM photometry has been completed in this SAS version with a new PSF for the
UVW1, UVM2 and UVW2 filters. The form of the PSF is taken into account when
measuring the count rates of the detected sources.

- OM source positions are corrected for a 0.5 pixel position error in both Fast
and Image Mode exposures.


Parameter Interface:
--------------------

The new task parameter handling system is capable of understanding complex
expressions for allowable values, in addition to setting default 
values as in former SAS versions. Furthermore, parameters can have 
child-parameters, depending on its value, and this makes possible the implicit 
setting of controlling parameters, if a child parameter is activated on the 
command line.
Example:
 evselect --xcolumn=RAWX  implies
 --withimageset=yes  (unless --withimageset=NO explicitely set) 
This represents large advantages at the time of writing scripts, which can be 
much more compact than in the past. However, "old" scripts have to be revised 
to avoid setting implicitely undesired parameters.  

CCF:
----
Please notice that a number of new calibration constituent files (CCF) have 
been released together with the SAS 6.0.0, which are necessary for running 
some of the tasks. You can follow the CCF download instructions at 
https://www.cosmos.esa.int/web/xmm-newton/current-calibration-files

XSA:
----
A number of SAS tasks are now fully integrated in the new release of the 
XMM-Newton Science Archive (XSA; http://xmm.esac.esa.int/xsa). EPIC, RGS 
and OM data reduction meta-tasks, EPIC event list filtering and interactive 
generation of EPIC scientific products (spectra, response matrices, light 
curves) can be run from the XSA user interface version v2.5 
(see http://xmm.esac.esa.int/external/xmm_news/items/xsa_2.5.shtml). Upgrading 
of these functionalities to the new SAS version (6.0) is ongoing.

Package attcalc: version 4.32 [was 4.27.1]

ChangeLog

Version 4.32 - 2003-07-14 (RDS)
------------------------------
+ fixed a trivial oversight in 4.31 where memory was being freed
  without being allocated.

Version 4.31 - 2003-07-11 (UL)
------------------------------
+ experimental change :-) attempt to fix a supposed problem about the
  position of the optical axes; the code used to calculate the position
  in DETX/DETY space (CAMCOORD2 in units of 1/20th arcsec) wrongly;
  what was really computed was the position of the *nominal* optical axes
  in the frame centered on the position of the *real* optical axes;
  impact of this change is expected to be minimal because up to and
  including XMM_MISCDATA_0019 the real axis position (attibutes OPTICS_X/Y
  in CHIPCOORD) concided with the nominal ones; for more info search
  for 'cendetx' in code

Version 4.27.1 - 2002-04-08 (MJF)
---------------------------------
 + (src/attcalc_mod.f90): converted debug output introduced in 4.27 to a
   "Noisy" message [SSC-SPR-2824]
closed SPR:
- SSC-SPR-2824: debug output should be message

	+ first of the 1.88 changes did not compile under gcc-2.95.3
	  (standard C++ compliance problem with 2.95.3) - implemented
	  workaround that avoids the 'fixed' stream modifier

Version 1.88 - 2003-07-03 (GV)
------------
	+ (Celestial.cc) Set the stringstream to have fixed format (s <<
	  fixed) or the formatting of floats into strings goes wrong with
	  gcc-3.3. Also put a try/catch block around the call to
	  toNumber.
	+ (OdfDesignators.(cc|h) Move the method proposalId from the
	  header file to the implementation file. This makes the test
	  harness attitudeLocator go through on HP Tru64. This fix is
	  empiricall because there is no reason why the previous version
	  should have failed. The failure only apears on HP, whereas on
	  Linux gcc-3.3 liked the previous implementation.
	
Version 1.87 - 2003-06-19 (GV)

	+ StateVariable.set() accepts boolean argument to suppress warnings
	+ operator<<() for EulerAngles gives more precision

	  variable SAS_CCFFILES for list of CCF constituent replacements
	  (described in CAL doc)

Version 1.84 - 2003-04-03 (UL)
------------
	+ added XmmInstrument::timeResolution()

	  changes

Version 1.81 - 2003-03-12 (UL)
------------
	+ extended list of camera modes in Xmm.h - new are
		MOS	: PRIME_FULL_NO_BPMASK
		OM	: DARK_LOW, DARK_HIGH, FLAT_FIELD_LOW, FLAT_FIELD_HIGH
	+ added DIAGNOSTIC_1X1, DIAGNOSTIC_3X3 to the list of possible MOS modes
	+ extended mode detection logic to cover the above 7 modes and recognize
	  INTENSIFIER_CHARACTERISTICS and CENTROIDING_DATA mode of OM
	
Version 1.80.1 - 2003-02-20 (UL)
--------------

	  needed by oal>=3.95 [Ccf.cc/h/RealCcf.cc/h]

Version 1.77 - 2002-02-17 (JBa)
------------
	+ (C++ files) prefixed with std::

Version 1.76 - 2002-09-09 (UL)

      should start Grace with the `-nosafe' option

Version 1.21 - 2003-07-02 (UL)
------------
	+ fixed problem of SPR 2456: Test harnbess fails on Mac OS X
	  [test harnesses run with Verbosity>0 cause diagnostic messages to

-----------
	+ Fix bug in test harness which was still referencing the old style include
	  file.

Version 5.0 - 2003-01-07 (DH)
-----------
	+ Change version number to reflect fact that 4.0 was delivered without the
	  changes to the bit mask format.

Version 4.1 - 2002-09-30 (DH)
-----------
	+ Change directory name src/dssbuild src/build.
	+ Get rid of dss.h in favor of DataSubspace.h. Maintaining two
	  redundant header files really wasn't accomplishing anything.
	+ New format for storing bit mask values in DSVALn keywords, in order
	  to conform with the agreed XMM and Chandra datasubspace conventions.
	+ Replace dynamic_cast test with a switch statement on Shape::type() in
	  the DSregionFilter constructor.
	+ Check for and eliminate redudant GTI extensions when writing the 
	  data subspace to a fits file.  Closes SSC-SPR-2934.

  incomplete "whole frame MIP rejection" accumulation
- (src/epframes_mod.f90): adjusted the internal "late-time-reset" parameter
  to 4 for FF and eFF modes (due to problems with 0608_0145840201_PNU014)
closed SPRs:
- SSC-SPR-3104: Whole frame MIP rejection not fully accounted for
- SSC-SPR-3121: Subscript 1 of ARRFRACEXP (value 8645) is out of range [0608_0145840201_PNU014 Q2]

-------------------------------
- (src/epframes_mod.f90): adjusted the internal "late-time-reset" parameter
  from 11 to 100 for SW mode (due to problems with 0583_0137750201_PNU003)
- (src/epframes_mod.f90): check against rejection of all time entries, in

-------------------------------
- (src/epframes_mod.f90): new parameter "lowerthreshold" to disregard low-energy
  events (with amplitudes < lowerthreshold [adu]) already at this stage,

  as the setup was different (lowertreshold=23 instead of 20 now)
- (src/epframes_mod.f90): updated list of "nom" values for offset columns
- (config/epframes.*): added new parameter "lowerthreshold"

- (src/epframes_mod.f90): if "withfinetime=N" then call CAL_correctTime()
  with the source Y position instead of the RAWY position for TI+BU modes

Version 8.54 - 2003-01-14 (MJF)
-------------------------------
- (src/epframes_mod.f90): new parameter "withfinetime" to switch off the fine
  time correction for TI+BU modes for easier identification of time jumps,
  default "withfinetime=Y" preserves recommended (old) behaviour. 
- (config/epframes.*): added new parameter "withfinetime"
- (doc/epframes_description.tex): added new parameter "withfinetime"

Version 8.53 - 2003-01-13 (MJF)
-------------------------------

  instead of F1528,1529,1530 to identify the uploaded BadPixelTable code,
  this automatically enables the identification of masked mode flavours
  [as in 'epframes-8.46.12' for the RT]
closed SPRs:
- SSC-SPR-2417: Inconsistent time related keywords
- SSC-SPR-3064: BadPixelTable coding accesses wrong HK columns

- SSC-SPR-2962: HTML parameter documentation broken

Version 8.50  - 2002-08-29 (MJF)
--------------------------------
- (src/epframes_mod.f90): extract DLI rate also from PMH file as this quantity
   is not affected by counting mode (unlike the AUX2 derived values)

Version 8.49  - 2002-08-12 (MJF)
--------------------------------
- merged all fixes of releasetrack until `epframes-8.46.8', such as:
- (src/epframes_mod.f90): initialize variables at run time instead of during
  variable declaration so that metatask usage does not fail [SSC-SPR-2819]
- (src/epframes_mod.f90): enable analysis of DLI files (preliminary version)
  Note: starting with `oal-3.92' and `caloalutils-1.72' this is not a dummy
  anymore, so the same code does now really do something and is more than
  just "preliminary" as in the releasetrack
- (src/epframes_mod.f90): add warning in case of "MIP CORREC.1"
- (doc/epframes_description.tex): as above
- (src/epframes_mod.f90): adjusted the internal "late-time-reset" parameter
  from 1 to 2 for FF and eFF modes [SSC-SPR-2815], this fixes also problems
  that occured for 0032_0117500201_PNS011 (CCD 10) and 0042_0119100201_PNU003
  (CCDs 4-9), increased this parameter from 16 to 100 for TI and BU modes to
  solve a similar problem with 0411_0153750301_PNS001 (CCD 4). No changes
  for SW and LW modes (no problems known).
closed SPRs:
- SSC-SPR-2815: Event time computation fails for 2 ODFs [0193_9019300003_PNS003, 0224_0093620801_PNU003]
- SSC-SPR-2819: Implicitly saved variables cause epproc to fail

Version 8.48  - 2002-05-23 (MJF)
--------------------------------
- (config/epframes.par): updated for `param-2.0'
- (DEPEND): needs `param-2.0', updated all other entries to latest

Version 8.47 - 2002-03-20 (MJF)
-------------------------------
- (src/epframes_mod.f90): restrict warning "tooLongExposure" to cases where
   the time elapsed between the firat and last photon exceeds the exposure
   duration (DATE-OBS, DATE-END) by more than 10s [SSC-SPR-2816]
- (src/epframes_mod.f90): internal "late reset parameter" for TI and BU modes
   raised from 11 to 16 to be more robust [SSC-SPR-2776]
closed SPRs:
- SSC-SPR-2776: ARRFRACEXP out of range [0044_0119710201_PNS001]

-------------------------
- Fixed SPR 3272.
- Slight change to error documentation and also to the .lyt file, to be more user-friendly.
- Added work-around for an error discovered in emsaplib.

Package oal: version 3.111.2 [was 3.92]

ChangeLog

Version 3.111.2 - 2004-02-13 (UL - still around :)
---------------
	+ more changes to pn AUX data anomaly detection/correction logic to
	  cope with seen problems in a number of ODFs (see email MJF to
	  MK/UL dated 2004-01-29):
		- relax maximum allowed fractional frame time jitter to better
		  cope with extended counting mode intervals
		- for jumps that are not +/-1s _always_ look for jumps in the opposite
		  direction within the next 50 frames even if an integer offset
		  was found that satisfies the 'delta criterion' (=delta must be
		  integer multiple of nominal frame time); it used to be that
		  this check was supressed if a suitable offset was found leading to
		  the introduction of bogus corrections (e.g. Crab ODFs
		  0411_0153750[2345]01)
		- if delta<0: only accept offsets that are odd and that correct jumps
					  occuring close to the end of a second (FTFINE>40000)
		- if delta>0: only accept offsets that are +/-1s or larger than
					  80% of the gap size
		- all other found deltas will not lead to a correction now but just
		  appear as 'unidentified deltas' in the log

Version 3.111.1 - 2003-12-12 (RDS)
-------------
    + removed f90 interface to RGS diagnostic maps. 
    + removed call to hasRgsDiagnosticMap - can use hasSet() instead.

Version 3.111 - 2003-12-11 (RDS)
-------------
    + finished SCR-133.

Version 3.110 - 2003-12-05 (EO)
-------------
	+ oal_description.tex typo corrected.

Version 3.109 - 2003-12-04 (RDS)
-------------
	+ added the routine OAL_RGSDiagImage to return a diagnostic image
      for an RGS configuration (SCR-133)

Version 3.108 - 2003-08-06 (UL)
-------------
	+ more changes to the PN-AUX data anomaly detection/correction logic:
		* for negative jumps limit the search interval for an offset
		  that makes the difference between consecutive frames an
		  integer multiple of the frame time to [|i|, |i|+2] (was
		  [|i|, |i|+10]); i is value of jump (fixed problem in
		  0156_0095810401_PNS00300AUX CCD7 reported by MJF)
		* supress verification of very large gap size; e.g. in
		  0362_0124930301_PNS02500AUX.FIT CCD4 there is gap of >177s
		  corresponding to >30000 missing frames (Burst mode); the frame
		  time jitter makes it senseless to verify the gap size
		* detection of 'premature increments' improved; 
		  0362_0124930301_PNS02500AUX.FIT CCD4 contains a case where old
		  logic failed
	+ fixed very minor problem with output message

Version 3.107 - 2003-07-03 (UL)
-------------
	+ pn AUX data anomaly detection+correction logic: there can be blocks
	  of AUX data whose QUADRANT/CCDID signature is wrong, e.g. they seemingly
	  stem from different quadrants (see doc comments in src/AusHKaccess.cc
	  for more info) - the size of these blocks was limited to 25 rows but
	  0137_0128120401_PNS00200AUX.FIT (source PSR1507) contains an example
	  of a 31-row block; the allowed size has not been increased to 50 rows

Version 3.106 - 2003-06-27 (UL)
-------------
	+ Calculation of signal propagation delay at SAS_OBT_MET_FIT=1,...:
	  Modified code after confirmation (email Ramon Munoz dated 2003-06-27)
	  that onboard delays have to be SUBTRACTED instead of added

Version 3.105 - 2003-06-20 (UL)
-------------
	+ pn auxiliary data processing: fixed a minor problem in a code branch
	  that deals with the very rare occurence of apparent CDMU crashes
	  during an exposure - in this case the determination of pn clock reset
	  times was incorrect (caused problem with 0104_0111130201_PNS00300AUX)

Version 3.104 - 2003-06-18 (UL)
-------------
	+ Implemented SCR 115: oal should not use unprocessed raw attitude file
      by introduction of new (optional) enviroment variable SAS_ATTITUDE;
	  if not set default is to use AHF data; doc updated accordingly

Version 3.103 - 2003-06-16 (GV)
-------------
	+ Misc. fixes to make gcc-3.3 happy: include  and/or
	  proper initialization of base classes.

Version 3.102 - 2003-05-02 (UL)
-------------
	+ bug fix to solve (rare) problem with S/U exposure confusion (seen
	  in e.g. 0591_0144900101 - unscheduled Timing exposure follows
	  scheduled Imaging exposure with same exposure number; S/U002)

Version 3.101 - 2003-04-04 (UL)
-------------
	+ fixed minor problem with new InstrumentalTimer() I/F

Version 3.100 - 2003-04-03 (UL)
-------------

--------------
	+ fixed problem with repeated OdfInfo::server.odf() invocations generating
	  new instances of OdfInfo::Odf() objects

Version 3.98.1 - 2003-02-12 (UL)
--------------
	+ fixed minor bug that would cause an 'unidentified delta' in the pn AUX
	  data anomaly recognition stage to get reported when there is none;
	  occurs when wrong-quad entries are present within a period after
	  a FTCOARSE jumps and before a reset [e.g. 0149_0111100301]

Version 3.98 - 2003-02-07 (UL)
------------
	+ implemented piecewise-linear interpolation of time correlation data as
	  alternative method to global polynomial fit; switched on by setting
	  second field 'degree' in SAS_OBT_MET_FIT to negative values; doc
	  updated accordingly

Version 3.97 - 2003-01-30 (UL)
------------
	+ small improvement in pn AUX anomaly detection logic related to find
	  blocks of wrong-quadrant/CCD data

Version 3.96 - 2003-01-30 (UL)
------------
	+ skip pn AUX data anomaly correction stage if data is found too anomalous
	  (e.g. old-vintage SciSim AUX data)
	+ catch pathological case that frame time increment is 0 (caused crash
	  in epframes test harness)

Version 3.95 - 2003-01-29 (UL)
------------
	+ much improved pn AUX data anomaly detection and correction algorithm;
	  should now be able to reliably find all FTCOARSE counter jumps
	  [Note: Access to EPN_TIMECORR CCF for AUX data anomaly processing
	   needed]
	+ couple of new warning messages about pn AUX anomalies (e.g.
	  unidentified deltas)

Version 3.94 - 2002-09-11 (JBa)
--------
	+ some ANSI C++ compliance fixes (in preparation of moving to gcc>=3.1)

Version 3.93 - 2002-07-02 (JBa)
------------
	+ replaced all occurences of 'strstream' with standard-conformant
	  'stringstream'

Version 3.93 - 2002-07-02 (JBa)
------------
	+ Using sstream instead of strstream

Version 3.92 - 2002-06-20 (UL)
------------
	+ hasAssociatedSet()/associatedSet() now works for PN DLI data
	  (association is made by searching for CCD number match in
	  DLI exposures not later than 15mins after science exposure)
	+ internal code change to work around out-of-mem compiler problem
	  at -O2 on Tru64

Package omdetect: version 4.19.5 [was 4.1.10]

ChangeLog

Version 4.19.5 - 2004-03-02 (CB)
--------------------------------
        Made a minor modification to subroutine imagedetection to fix
	a failure when the parameter detectextended=false (couldn't raise 
	an SPR because netscape not working here).
	
Version 4.19.4 - 2004-02-27 (CB)
--------------------------------
	A small modification has been made to the grism-detection routine,
	so that the actual source-detection routine is run 3 times with
	decreasing image threshold values. This reduces the risk of
	bright detected spectra being contaminated by scattered light
	which prevents omgrism from constructing spectra for them
	(fixes SPR 3261).
	
	
Version 4.19.3 - 2004-02-19 (CB)
--------------------------------
	Ammended omdetectdetection_mod.f90 to carry out another search
	for point-sources after main search, using smaller radii to 
	compute counts, which enables more fainter sources to be detected and
	also more sources that are in close proximity to another one
	(fixes SPR 3252).
	
	
Version 4.19.2 - 2004-01-06 (CB)
--------------------------------
	Ammended module omdetectdetection_mod to fix compilation failure 
	on TRU 64 at MPE (fixes SPR 3192). Ammended parameter constant
	in omdetectdetection_mod and added check in omdetect_mod for fast
	mode data to check that a source has been detected by point-source
	detection algorithm- if not extended-source detection made to find
	possible source.
	
Version 4.19.1 - 2003-12-12 (CB)
--------------------------------
	Module matrix_mod deleted to fix build problem 
	on Darwin 6.8 (fixes SPR 3174)
	
Version 4.19 - 2003-12-11 (CB)
--------------------------------
	Some source-detection parameters adjusted.
	
	
Version 4.18 - 2003-12-09 (CB)
--------------------------------
	Some paremeters for grism source-detection tweaked.
	
	
Version 4.17 - 2003-12-05 (CB)
--------------------------------
	Improved detection alogorithim added for grism spectra.
Version 4.16 - 2003-11-21 (CB)
--------------------------------
	DEPEND file ammended for ssclib 3.0
	
Version 4.15 - 2003-11-19 (CB)
--------------------------------
        A couple of minor changes for ssclib version 3.0.
	
Version 4.14 - 2003-11-12 (CB)
--------------------------------
        Added check for zero detected sources to prevent array problem.
Version 4.13 - 2003-10-10 (CB)
--------------------------------
        Added optional parameter "background" to enable the user
	to fix the global background value for source-detection.
	Module omdetectdetection moved into mssllib, since it 
	is now also needed by omgsource.
	
Version 4.12 - 2003-08-13 (CB)
--------------------------------
	Documentation correction for SPR 3088. 
Version 4.11 - 2003-07-16 (CB)
--------------------------------
	+ (src/omdetection_mod.f90) A parameter adjustment to extended
	source detection routine for grism data.
	
Version 4.10 - 2003-07-14 (CB)
--------------------------------
	+ (src/omdetection_mod.f90) A couple of minor modifications made
	to reduce executiuon time.
	
Version 4.9 - 2003-07-11 (CB)
--------------------------------
	+ (src/omdetecttest_mod.f90) Parameter adjustment for grism data..
	
Version 4.8 - 2003-06-17 (VNY)
--------------------------------
	+ (test/testomdetecttest) some lines in the testomdetect script are 
	uncommented to ensure the correct finishing of the test
	
Version 4.7 - 2003-06-03 (CB)
--------------------------------
        + (src/omdetecttest_mod.f90) Minor mod to fix build problem.

--------------------------------
        + (src/omdetect_mod.f90) Added OmConstants_mod to list
	of modules to fix build problem.

--------------------------------
        Minor modification made to enable it to be used in the omgrism chain.
	
Version 4.4 - 2003-04-29 (CB)
--------------------------------
        A couple of minor modifications made to rectify problem reported 
	on xmmsas-20030427-0057.
	
Version 4.3 - 2003-03-15 (CB)
--------------------------------
        Now uses modules in mssllib to perform photometry, smooth image,
	create source-list file and compute magnitudes, as will omsource shortly.
	
Version 4.2 - 2003-14-02 (CB)
--------------------------------
        Uploaded into development track.
	
Version 4.1.11 - 2003-14-02 (CB)
--------------------------------
        Corrected 0.5 pixel error in positions & reduced size of centroiding
	box to reduce contamination by nearby sources (fixes SPRs 3071 &
	3077). Made small improvements to source-detection routine (to fix
	SPR 3078). Point-source detection algorithm now searches for
	sources in order of decreasing pixel value. Faint sources now less
	likely to be missed.
	
Version 4.1.10 - 2003-01-08 (CB)
--------------------------------
	+ (src/omdetect_mod.f90) Modified to obtain ccdframe time
	 and deadfraction from wdx file if not present in image header,
	so that omdetect is backwards compatible with old images.
	added optional parameter wdxset to config file to get information.

Package omlcbuild: version 1.24.1 [was 1.15.10]

ChangeLog

Version 1.24.1 - 2004-03-01 (VNY) Protected against multiple 
	warning messages produced by CAL_omPhotoNatural in the 
	cases of bright sources, when the count rates exceed
	the permitted value defined by the frame time. Now,
	the task generates a single warning message indicating
	the percentage of the points with coincidence-loss 
	incorregeable count rates. Similar warning is placed into 
	the header of the output file (in the form of a comment
	line), SSC-SPR-3259
Version 1.24 - 2003-11-21 (VNY) DEPEND file updated to match the new
	version (3.0) of ssclib
Version 1.23 - 2003-06-16 (VNY) A small bug has been found (and fixed), 
	which might provoke a subscript error for some of the
	background timeseries (SSC-SPR-3131).
	
Version 1.22 - 2003-04-09 (VNY) 
	(+ /scr/omlcbuild_mod.f90) A small incorrectness in the
	interpolation of the last two poits of the background 
	light-curve is fixed (SSC-SPR-3103), which resulted in 
	underestimation of rates for these two points.
	
Version 1.21 - 2002-10-29 (VNY)
	(+ /scr/omlcbuild_mod.f90) Protection against the absence of
	the COINCLOSS_CORR column is introduced (SPR-3007)
	
Version 1.20 - 2002-10-25 (VNY)
	(+ /src/omlcbuild_mod.f90) Corrected a bug, which was introduced
	at the end of September and which resulted in the impossibility
	to find the CORR_RATE_ERR column in the source list file
	(SSC-SPR-3004)
	
Version 1.19 - 2002-10-08 (VNY)
-------------------------------
	Additional check to improve robustness of the task has been
	added: the presence of the CORR_BACKGROUND_RATE column is checked
	before adding new columns after it to the file SWSRCLI (in order
	to avoid error messages in case on absence of this column).


Version 1.18 - 2002-09-26 (VNY) 
-------------------------------
	Updated to work with the modified format of SRCLIST-file
	(omdetect now doesn't produce the MAG-column; thus, omlcbuild 
	picks up this column only if it exists).
        Calculation of averaged instrumental magnitude of the source 
	has been modified: now first the count rates are averaged, and
	then the magnitude is calculated. Missed descriptions of 
	the columns in the RATE table are added.
	Source list table file is rearraged to have the same format as 
	that produced by OMICHAIN. 

Version 1.17 - 2002-05-23 (VNY) RA and DEC keywords in the TIMESR fits-file
	have been replaced with RA_OBJ and DEC_OBJ in order to make
	it easier to run BARYCEN on the light curve data	
	
Version 1.16 13.05.2002 (VNY) DEPEND and +/config/omlcbuild.par files 
	have been updated in order to work with PARAM-2.0

	New parameters have been added, permitting
	the OM XMM flat field to be used to determine the Mod-8
	noise pattern. This would be useful for the fields with 
	not sufficient number of photons or for the grism images.
	The modification is made in accordance with SCR-116.
	The new parameters do not change the task's interface
	since they are not mandatory.

	i.e.saving of parameter files in $HOME/.sas.d/config/

Version 2.11 - 2003-02-10 (JBa)
------------
	Introduced a new interface for parsing: "ParamParser". The difference 
	with the old (now deprecated) interface "ParamInfoReader" is that it
	provide means to load/save a file. The old interface could only
	load a 'task' (and with a hack it could load a 'file'), but saving
	was out ofg the question...

Version 2.3 - 2002-06-03 (JBa)
-----------
	+ (String*Parameter.cc) temporary workaround for problems in

-----------
	+ depends on selectlib

Version 2.1 - 2002-05-21 (JBa)
-----------
	+ made class ChoiceChildParameters prettier
	+ asString() and defaultAsString() produce prettier output. Lists do
	  not have annoying begin/end quotes

Version 2.0 - 2002-04-22 (JBa)
-----------
	+ updated user as well as developer documentation for XML usage
	+ streamlined error messages
	New interface
	+ param is using XML as file format: created tool 'xpi2xml' to do the
	  job transparently
	+ nested parameters allowed
	+ implicit setting of parameters
	+ expanded constraint checker (introduction of selectlib)


Version 1.70 - 2002-01-28 (JBa)

Version 1.69 - 2002-01-28 (JBa)
--------------
	+ resubmitted 1.68.1. Though the patch is correct, it finds so many
	  ill-defined modes in parameter files, that we may want to
	  post-pone the implementation.

Version 1.406 - 2003-07-31 (EO)
-------------
	+ No changes to code.
	Changed back in Make.include.in the AKA to dt.
	Changed back the SHAREDVERSION to no in configure.in
	
Version 1.405.2 - 2003-07-30 (EO)
---------------
        + No changes to code. Made for the soctrack.
        SHAREDVERSION in configure.in set to yes (not done before).

Version 1.405.1 - 2003-07-30 (EO)
---------------
        + No changes to code. Made for the soctrack.
	AKA in Make.include.in changed to soc.
	SHAREDVERSION in configure.in set to yes.

Version 1.405 - 2003-06-26 (GV)
-------------
	+ (mkpkgidx) Change wording of entries in index page from 'Index
	of x' to 'Index of x referenced in the documentation'. SOC-SPR-2413.

Version 1.404 - 2003-06-26 (GV)
-------------
	+ (Make.include.in) Change the way awk is called when make commit
	is called, so that this works on Mac OS X. SOC-SPR-2448.
	
Version 1.403 - 2003-06-25 (GV)
-------------
	+ (testconfiguremake) Step out of the current directory before
	deleting it at the end of the test.

Version 1.402 - 2003-06-24 (GV)
-------------
	+ (configure.in) Using --enable-strict=no no longer skips the Qt
	checks because Qt is required for param to work.

Version 1.401 - 2003-06-20 (GV)
-------------
	+ (Makefile.top) Make the binary archive targets more verbose.
	
Version 1.400 - 2003-06-18 (GV)
-------------
	+ (configure) Check that Qt has DOM support. This is needed for
	the parameter interface to work, but some commercial licenses
	don't have it.
	
Version 1.399 - 2003-06-17 (GV)
-------------
	+ (Make.include) I had accidentally disabled SLOPPY.
	+ (makefile.top) Rework all of the binary making commands. Make
	use of both the saslibs and the listxcluded scripts.

Version 1.398 - 2003-06-11 (GV)
-------------
	+ (configure.in) On Mac OS X add further flags to
	SHARED_LIBS_FLAGS so that the libraries are created with the full
	path (-install_name). In this manner when a task is linked against
	libX, with libX linked against libY, the system finds libY even if
	the latter is not explicitly given on the link line.
	
Version 1.397 - 2003-06-03 (GV)
-------------
	+ (Make.include.in) Add ';' after the if/then/else/fi structure
	that determines whether the full documentation should be built for
	an incremental build. This is what proper Bourne shells want.
	+ Add development script saslibs, a helper script used to make
	binary distributions.
	+ Remove old scripts: uploadreport.csh constructManifest paramconv
	sascommit checkReport incheckReport buildReport
	+ (Makefile.top) Run the saslibs script before creating the binary
	archives.
	
Version 1.396 - 2003-06-02 (GV)
-------------
	+ (Make.include) The incremental build now builds also the html
	documentation. This can be switched off with make incheck
	FULLDOC=no.
	+ (Make.include) Change introduced in 1.394 caused a few libraries
	not to take the value of EXTERNALS into account. This caused
	linking of tasks against those libraries to fail on platforms
	other than Mac OS X. Fixed.
	
Version 1.395 - 2003-05-30 (GV)
-------------
	+ (configure) Make the linker shut up on Mac OS X when an
	undefined symbol is found when creating a library.
	
Version 1.394 - 2003-05-29 (GV)
-------------
	+ (Make.include.in, configure.in) Introduce LIBS_LDLIBS, flags to
	be used when creating shared libraries. Normally this is the same
	as LDLIBS (used to create executables), but on Mac OS X the two
	linking processes must be different. Also, get rid of -m on Mac OS
	X when creating executables.

Version 1.393 - 2003-05-26 (GV)
-------------
	+ (Make.include.in) Get rid of another occurrence of == in a shell
	test, that would make the incremental build stop in an environment
	with a plain Bourne shell.

Version 1.392 - 2003-05-25 (GV)
-------------
	+ (Make.include.in) The optimization levels are now set by
	configure instead of being hard-coded.
	+ (configure.in) Set optimization levels, so that c++ and f9x
	levels can be set independently based on the OS. On Mac OS f9x
	on slatec triggers a bug in gcc if complied with -O2: set to -O4.
	+ (configure.in) Add -fno-coalesce-templates to c++ flags when
	compiling on Mac OS X, or the CAL Glue does not create a shared
	library. This should possibly be fixed in the CAL.
	
Version 1.391 - 2003-05-24 (GV)
-------------
	+ (configure.in) Was not passing -m when creating shared libraries
	on Mac OS X.

Version 1.390 - 2003-05-23 (GV)
-------------
	+ (configure.in) remove two occurrences of test x == y (== -> =)
	because that syntax does not work on classic Bourne shells.
	+ (configure.in) fix the selection of the shared library options
	on Mac OS X, where the algorithm used to select whether f95 runs
	with gcc fails because there gcc is called cc.

Version 1.389 - 2003-05-22 (GV)
-------------
	+ Another small tweak for Mac OS X: -fPIC was not being passed
	consistently to the compiler. Also, ask the linker to only warn of
	undefined symbols (-flat_namespace -undefined warning) instead of
	terminating with an error.
	+ (sas-setup.[c]sh) updated DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH (Mac OS X).

Version 1.388 - 2003-05-21 (GV)
-------------
	+ (configure.in, Make.include.in) Move some of the choices about
	f90 and f77 from Make.include to configure. Promote Mac OS X to
	supported system, and finalize flags needed to create shared
	libraries on that system.

Version 1.387 - 2003-05-21 (GV)
-------------
	+ (chkdist) permission check was too zealous.
	
Version 1.386 - 2003-05-19 (GV)
-------------
	+ More of the same permission nonsense.

Version 1.385 - 2003-05-19 (GV)
-------------
	+ (Make.include,in) F90INCFLAGS was lower case.
	+ (chkdist) fix check for file permissions, that was not being
	executed correctly (not all the time any way).
	
Version 1.384 - 2003-05-07 (GV)
-------------
	+ (Make.include.in) if param is in USEDLIBS, also add the
	dal. This may help static build on Mac.

Version 1.383 - 2003-05-07 (GV)
-------------
	+ (SasServer.pm) fix error that prevented download of master MD5.
	+ (ftpsas) fix error when comparing signatures from the MD5 master
	file.
	
Version 1.382 - 2003-05-05 (GV)
-------------
	+ Re-upload of 1.381 when I had uploaded all of the bin/* scripts
	with restrictive permissions.
	
Version 1.381 - 2003-05-01 (GV)
-------------
	+ (configure) can make use of libf96.so if a handcrafted
	libf96fix.a containing quickfit.o is also found. 
	
Version 1.380 - 2003-04-29 (GV)
-------------
	+ (chkdist) had become too strict, checking for the file
	build_log, but this file exists during a build and is created
	before the chkdist is run => chkdist always failed during build.

Version 1.379 - 2003-04-28 (GV)
-------------
	+ (Make.include.in) make sure that build_log_second is removed in
	a make clobber.

Version 1.378 - 2003-04-26 (GV)
-------------
	+ Create and upload packagedetails.html.
	
Version 1.377 - 2003-04-25 (GV)
-------------
	+ Re-upload of 1.376 to test package server in Vilspa.

Version 1.376 - 2003-04-25 (GV)
-------------
	+ Re-upload of 1.375 to test package server in Vilspa.

Version 1.375 - 2003-04-25 (GV)
-------------
	+ (htmkReport) make sure colors also work for short build.
	
Version 1.374 - 2003-04-24 (GV)
-------------
	+ (htmlReport) fix broken links, restructure table for clarity.
	
Version 1.373 - 2003-04-23 (GV)
-------------
	+ (configure) fix wrong test syntax (introduced at 1.371) that
	prevented configure from going through on most machines.
	
Version 1.372 - 2003-04-22 (GV)
-------------
	+ (uploadreport) make sure the files build_log_second are uploaded
	if they exist.
	+ (htmlReport) link to build_log_second if necessary; add color
	scheme legenda; adjust colors.
	
Version 1.371 - 2003-04-21 (GV)
-------------
	+ (configure.in) make use of libf96.so if a library called libf96fix
	containing the NAG quickfit.o is found. This is necessary on
	recent versions of RedHat (and presumably of other GNU/Linux
	distributions) to prevent linking errors due to the fact that the
	loading of old static libraries may fail.

Version 1.370 - 2003-04-10 (GV)
-------------
	+ (sas-setup.sh) remove incorrect setting of LIBRARY_PATH
	+ (testconfiguremake) source with '. ./sas-setup.sh' to avoid
	failure when PATH does not contain '.'.
	
Version 1.369 - 2003-03-31 (GV)
-------------
	+ (uploadreport) Upload via intermediate tar file. Upload to
	Vilspa machine.

Version 1.368 - 2003-03-28 (GV)
-------------
	+ (uploadsas) uploads to Vilspa server. SasServer.pm updated to
	provide interface to upload files.
	
Version 1.367 - 2003-03-20 (GV)
-------------
	+ (configure.in) additional Qt-related flags necessary on Mac OS X
	were lost in transit. 

Version 1.366 - 2003-03-19 (GV)
-------------
	+ (configure.in) additional Qt-related flags necessary on Mac OS X
	were lost in transit. 

Version 1.365 - 2003-03-01 (GV)
-------------
	+ (Make.include) Some commands are now chattier.
	+ (configure) add -I to Qt include.
	
Version 1.364 - 2003-02-28 (GV)
-------------
	+ (Make.include) All grep statements that have to do with buildlog
	redirect their output to /dev/null. They used to append to the log
	their were grepping, creating the possibility of infinite loops
	(this was sure the case on Mac OS X).

Version 1.363 - 2003-02-28 (GV)
-------------
	+ (Make.include) if USEDLIBS contains param, then force EXTERNALS
	= qt so that the static build works. Set MAKEFLAGS so that the
	directory names are not printed out. Fix for echo -n on Dec.
	make check was no longer creating the html doc,
	fixed. SOC-SPR-2411.
	Add echo command to the end of the target check/incheck/build, so
	that build report does not show a long list of 'make[4]' entries.
	+ (configure) On Mac OS X when using Qt -framework Security is
	also needed in the linker flags.
	
Version 1.362 - 2003-02-21 (GV)
-------------
	+ (Make.include.in) Fix possible race condition while accessing
	the build_log file for the second test, which could lead to an
	infinite recursion while executing the second test harness.

Version 1.361 - 2003-02-21 (GV)
-------------
	+ (configure) On Mac OS X switch off optimization.
	
Version 1.360 - 2003-02-20 (GV)
-------------
	+ (configure) now add the variables ECHO_N and ECHO_C to Make.include.
	+ (Make.include) Use ECHO_N and ECHO_C to build a supposedly
	platform-independent echo -n. Introduce GNU Make functions to
	simplify the description of the targets check, incheck,
	build. Make sure that if some of the directories where
	Make.include wants to put symbolic links do not exist, an error is
	generated. Add target required_dirs to create all the required
	directories. This is not run automatically to prevent the creation
	of these directories when this is not wanted.
	
Version 1.359 - 2003-02-18 (GV)
-------------
	+ (Make.include) Add missing space in rule to create libraries.

Version 1.358 - 2003-02-17 (GV)
-------------
	+ (configure.in) When on a Mac OS X switch shared libraries off.
	+ (Make.include.in) Use echo -n when a newline character doesn't
	need to be generated, as this is more portable (to the Mac in
	particular). Add rules to run ranlib on static libraries, as this
	is required on a Mac.
	+ (sas-setup) create ~/.sas.d/config
	
Version 1.357 - 2003-02-07 (GV)
-------------
	+ (Make.include) perl tasks depend explicitly on main.pl in
	taskmain and on their own task.pl.
	
Version 1.356 - 2003-01-31 (GV)
-------------
	+ (Make.include) implement perl tasks as plain perl scripts.
	+ (configure.in) primitive support for Mac OS X.
	+ (Make.include) primitive support for Max OS X: mkae suffix for
	shared library configurable via configure.
	
Version 1.355 - 2003-01-22 (GV)
-------------
	+ (testconfiguremake) really fix SOC-SPR-2395.
	+ (configure.in):
	  - skip some tests is -enable-strict=no
	  - error/warning if ds9 is version 2.2.1
	  - only support f95
	  - Qt >= 2.3.2
	
Version 1.354 - 2003-01-21
-------------
	+ (Make.include) incremental build runs again the test harnesses.

Version 1.353 - 2003-01-10
-------------
        + (sas.bib) fix typo on CALHB entry ct:calhb, update URLs for
         Chandra documents (region, data model etc.)
	+ (testconfiguremake) use gmake instead of make if
	found. SOC-SPR-2395.	
	
Version 1.352 - 2003-01-06 (GV)
-------------
	+ (bin/uploadreport) force ftp to run in passive mode, so it works
	from behind some firewalls.

Version 1.351 - 2003-01-03 (GV)
-------------
	+ (Make.include.in) The fix at 1.348 was preventing the task
	binaries from being removed (I should have used %\/ instead of %/
	in the clean and clobber rules). SOC-SPR-2393.
	+ (configure.in) check that tsort is available. SOC-SPR-2378.
	
Version 1.350 - 2002-12-23 (GV)
-------------
	+ (Make.include.in) run f90depend with LANG=C set, ot on RH8.0 not
	all modules are correctly found.
	
Version 1.349 - 2002-12-19 (GV)
-------------
	+ (sas.bib) How many tries to get a reference right?? Fix typo in
	URL for CALHB.

Version 1.348 - 2002-12-18 (JBa)
-------------
	+ (bin/sasclean_cpath) 'sh' does not know about '==' operator
	+ (Make.include.in) Forgot a trailing '/' in using addprefix(). This
	  triggered mayhap on the backward directory.

Version 1.347 - 2002-12-18 (GV)
-------------
	+ (sas.bib) Add missing space between \tt and text.

Version 1.346 - 2002-12-17 (JBa)
-------------
	+ (configure.in,sas.environment.in,Make.include.in) Using CPATH:
	  'make' as well as 'configure' will check and modify environment
	  if necessary.
	  We do it in both systems, as a 'developer' may want to force
	  different environment setting, than the one that was used during
	  configuration...
	+ (bin/sasclean_cpath) added to do the above in 'configure' as well
	  as in 'make'
	
Version 1.345 - 2002-12-17 (GV)
-------------
	+ (sas.bib) update URL for CAL HB.
	+ (testconfiguremake) change exports to be portable (SOC-SPR-2384).
	
Version 1.344 - 2002-12-16 (GV)
-------------
	+ (Make.include.in) Restore name of CONFIGDIR that had been
	removed. This triggered a number of failures on make depend.
	+ (Make.include.in) A build with a stricter behavior of the c++
	compiler can be achiver by specifying STRICTCPP=yes. By default
	this is set to no, or the build explodes :)
	+ (Make.include.in) Make running the test harnesses during an
	incremental build conditional (RUNTESTS=yes).
	+ Add PNG versions of all icons needed by latex2html.
	
Version 1.343 - 2002-12-14 (GV)
-------------
	+ (Make.include.in) name of directory below is include.

Version 1.342 - 2002-12-14 (GV)
-------------
	+ (Make.include.in) re-introduce usage of config-std.h as this adds
          using namespace std, and this is very much needed at this
	  stage. However, this file is not generated by configure (which
	  would trigger a rebuild in an incremental build) but just places
	  in $SAS_DIR/config and included from there, so that a new build
	  is only required when that file changes.  

Version 1.341 - 2002-12-13 (GV)
-------------
	+ (Make.include.in) remove usage of config-std.h.

Version 1.340 - 2002-12-13 (GV)
-------------
	+ (configure.in) replace using [] with test in file tests as this
	is more portable.
	+ (SasVersion.h) define more strings (like AKA).
	+ (configure.in) remove creation of config-std.h.in as code is
	  supposed to work with gcc-3.x now. Also, the creation of this file
	  each time triggered a complete rebuild during incrementals.
	+ (ftpsas) additional exit code when running in patch mode to
          indicate that that package sas was updated and configure needs
	  to be run again.

Version 1.339 - 2002-12-12 (GV)
-------------
	+ (configure.in) identify RedHat and SuSE, make use of RELEASE file.
	+ (SasVersion.h.in) add RELEASE constant.

Version 1.338 - 2002-12-10 (GV)
-------------
        + (bin/createcompletionscripts) remove -s flag when creating bash file.
	+ (configure) for gcc 3.2 we need to re-introduce the work around
	concerning the way headers found in CPLUS_INCLUDE_PATH are treated
	(they are considered to be C headers even if they are C++). This
	leads to warnings in the build.

Version 1.337 - 2002-12-09 (GV)
-------------
	+ (Makefile.top) at end of make check creates shell command line
          completion scripts in SAS_DIR.

Version 1.336 - 2002-12-05  (GV)
-------------
	+ (configure.in) change lack of GNU ar into a warning (it was an
	error).

Version 1.335 - 2002-12-05  (GV)
-------------
	+ (Make.include) targets clobber and clean remove the finale /
	from CLOBBERFILES and CLEANFILES, or rm will fail for symlinks on
	RedHat 8.0.
	
Version 1.334 - 2002-12-05 (GV)
-------------
	+ (Make.include) more support for CVS (make branch).

Version 1.333 - 2002-12-04 (GV)
-------------
	+ (Make.include) additional CVS markers had entered the file,
          breaking it.
	+ (testconfiguremake) a new test harness where a mini SAS build of
	one package is attempted. This to ensure that changes to configure
	and Make.include are not deadly.
	  
Version 1.332 - 2002-12-03 (GV)
-------------
	+ (bin/Makefile) had forgotten to add htmlReport to DEVSCRIPTS.

Version 1.331 - 2002-12-02 (GV)
-------------
	+ (htmlReport) subsumes incheckReport, checkReport,
	buildReport. Re-work the color coding algorithm so that it can 
	cope with incremental builds where no test harnesses are run at
	all. All html report in Make.include are generated with this script.
	
Version 1.330 - 2002-11-28 (GV)
-------------	
	+ (Make.include) incheck does not run the test harnesses
	now. Temporary change to allow people to decide where the time for
	an incremental build goes.
	
Version 1.329 - 2002-11-22 (GV)
-------------
	+ (f90depend) make it work on RedHat 8.0 (SOC-SPR-2368).

Version 1.328 - 2002-11-21 (GV)
-------------
	+ (ftpsas) preserve exit status in END block, otherwise it is
	always reset to 0 because the END block is guaranteed to succeed.
	+ (Makefile.top) do not echo the uploadreport command.
	
Version 1.327 - 2002-11-11 (GV)
-------------
	+ (Make.include) More tweaks to compiler flags when profiling.

Version 1.326 - 2002-11-11 (GV)
-------------
	+ (Make.include) When PROFILE is on, make sure the debug flags are
	correctly set.
	
Version 1.325 - 2002-10-31 (GV)
-------------
	+ (ftpsas) allow one to specify a name other than 'make' for GNU
	Make. Add more protection to chdir/mkdir statements to prevent
	ftpsas from unpacking packages in the wrong directory. 

Version 1.324 - 2002-10-28 (GV)
-------------
	+ (Make.include) make incheck now only builds the ps
	documentation, so as to speed it up even further (while I figure
	out a way to introduce a reliable dependency mechanism for
	latex2html). Add a rudimentary dependency mechanism to create the
	ps documentation, so that the latter is not re-built unless the
	latex source (or some of the auxiliary files in packages sas) have
	changed. This is not fool proof, but should significantly improve
	the speed of incremental builds.
	

Version 1.323 - 2002-10-14 (GV)
-------------
	+ (sasglobal.tex) \task{} macro generates bold text in ps doc (SOC-SPR-2318)

Version 1.322 - 2002-10-03 (GV)
-------------
	+ (bin/uploadreport) make silent so cron jobs don't talk. Also
	check exit status after ech ftp call, so cron jobs will talk when
	an error.

Version 1.321 - 2002-09-27 (GV)
-------------
	+ (bin/fixdoc) write final new line to sasdoc_version.tex.

Version 1.320 - 2002-09-26 (GV)
-------------
	+ (bin/chkdist) introduce a @relaxed@ checking mode so that
	incremental builds can run this test as well.
	+ (Make.include) modify the incheck target so that chkdist is run
	in relaxed mode.
	+ (bin/incheckReport) updated with the extra column in the build
	report.

Version 1.319 - 2002-09-24 (GV)
-------------
	+ (src/runtestalarm.cc) allow one to set the maximum allowed
	duration of a single test harness run via the environment variable
	SAS_TEST_TIMEOUT. 

Version 1.318 - 2002-09-24 (GV)
-------------
	+ (configure.in) additional fix for gcc 2.96 (early version found
	on RH 7.1) whereby vthe environment variable CPLUS_INCLUDE_PATH is
	ignored.

Version 1.317 - 2002-09-20 (GV)
-------------
	+ (ftpsas, SasServer.pm) small updates to log/error messages and
	documentation to clarify what is happening.


Version 1.316 - 2002-09-19 (GV)
-------------
	+ (chkdist) package sas in DEPEND: restored for the DT.

=========================================================================
Package sashelp: version 1.6 [was 1.0.2]

ChangeLog

Version 1.6 - 2003-06-26 (GV)
-----------
	+ (sashelp.cc) No longer try to make use of obsolete
	parameters. SOC-SPR-2459.
	+ (sashelp.cc) Use execlp to start the browser. Documentation updated.
	
Version 1.5 - 2003-01-24 (GV)
-----------
	+ (sashelp_description.tex) remove another CVS tag.

Version 1.4 - 2002-12-18 (GV)
-----------
	+ (sashelp.cc) remove CVS tags that should not have been there.
	
Version 1.3 - 2002-12-05 (GV)
-----------
	+ Support any browser via the environment variable SAS_BROWSER.
	
Version 1.2 - 2002-07-11 (GV)
-----------
	+ DEPEND on sas.

Version 1.1 - 2002-05-13 (GV)
-----------
	+ updated for param-2.0
	
=========================================================================
Package saslib: version 1.84.1 [was 1.68]

ChangeLog

Version 1.84.1 - 2004-02-05 (JSH)

-------------
- Modified valueAtHistoFractionVector and valueAtHistoFractionArray in array_utils to fix SPR 3187.

Package taskmain: version 1.90 [was 1.67.5]

ChangeLog

Version 1.90 - 2003-07-29 (JBa)
------------
	+ Fixed test harness, such that they work on Mac OS X too:
	  (- test/tasks/testTaskPrivate.h)
	  (+ test/tasks/testtasklib.h)
	  (+ test/tasks/testtasklib.cc)
	
Version 1.89 - 2003-07-03 (GV)
------------
	+ (QtRegister.cc) Fix double definition of isEnabled, which does
	compile on Mac!
	
Version 1.88 - 2003-07-01 (JBa)
------------
	+ (lib/DialogDll.cc) uses dylib extension for MacOsX
	+ (lib/QtRegister.*) GUI enabling for MacOsX incorporated

Version 1.87 - 2003-06-26 (EO)
-----------
	+ (test/tasks/runperltask) Added grep for correct output catching.
	
Version 1.86 - 2003-06-13 (GV)
------------	
	+ (Dll.cc) On Mac OS X dlsym and company are available through a
	wrapper around the native interface. This wrapper is provided by
	the finch project. The problem is that it is not always guaranteed
	that the dlsym puts an underscore in front of the symbol
	names. This can be configure at build time (of the wrapper in
	question). To make life easier, and avoid surprises in case the
	SAS is built on a system with the _ and run on a system without it
	(or vice versa), here we try to load a symbol twice, once without
	the underscore, and once with it. Only if both attempts fail is an
	error issued.

Version 1.85 - 2003-03-17 (GV)
------------
	+ (lib/HelpViewer.cc) uses env{SAS_BROWSER} if available.

Version 1.84 - 2003-02-11 (GV)
------------
	+ (main.pl) the --verbosity setting was not being propagated
	correctly.
	+ (test/task/runperltask) modify to be sensitive to the verbosity
	setting. 
	
Version 1.83 - 2003-02-07 (GV)
------------
	+ (main.pl) load SAS::param, remove debug print.
	
Version 1.82 - 2003-02-03 (GV)
------------
	+ (Makefile) remove src from SUBDIRS, or make depend will
