SAS Patch Release Notes - SAS 12.0.1



               Release Note for patched version SAS 12.0.1
	       =================================================

		         Carlos Gabriel  
	                 XMM-Newton SOC
          
A patch to the newly released SAS 12.0.0 version has to be issued, due 
to following reasons:

  • fixing a bug in the response matrix generation (arfgen) for PN burst mode data,
  • initializing variables in the epatplot task, which otherwise can lead to crashes (only by some of the binaries distributed)
We took the opportunity to establish "ellbeta" (aka 2D-PSF) as default PSF mode parameter in the call to edetect_chain and also to upgrade the documentation of several tasks.

Package arfgen: version 1.83.4 [was 1.83.3]
Package barycen: version 1.20.2 [was 1.20.1]
Package catcorr: version 0.4.4 [was 0.4.3]
Package eboxdetect: version 4.22.3 [was 4.22.2]
Package edetect_chain: version 3.12.2 [was 3.12.1]
Package eexpmap: version 4.6.5 [was 4.6.4]
Package emask: version 2.13.3 [was 2.13.2]
Package emldetect: version 5.17.4 [was 5.17.3]
Package epatplot: version 1.16.1 [was 1.16]
Package ewavelet: version 3.11.2 [was 3.11.1]
Package rgslccorr: version 0.52.1 [was 0.52]
Package sas: version 1.545.1 [was 1.545]
Package arfgen: version 1.83.4 [was 1.83.3]

ChangeLog

Version 1.83.4 - 2012-06-18 (RDS)
------------
	+ (src/ConcreteArfDataServer.cc) - Fixed problem with the PSF 
					   calculation for the FAST modes
					   where a subset of the full-Y
					   range is taken. (SPR-6733)

Version 1.83.3 - 2012-05-17 (RDS)
------------
	+ (src/ConcreteArfDataServer.cc, - Put some logic into the calculation
	   config/arfgen.par)		   of the default badpixresolution to
				   	   make it fine (0.5") if a PSF corr is
					   being calculated and coarse (2") if
					   it isn't. (SPR-6729)
