Also, there was an ISAP bug involving the reading of ascii files and photometry files that caused a procedure to fail with IDL v.5.0.3 and higher. The new ISAP v5.4 has this bug fixed and so again is compatable with old and new IDL versions.
Many users are reporting successful operation of ISAP under LINUX. Some color table problems may still exist for some installations. For details see "Known bugs and Fixes" on the IPAC ISAP Website.
The "Dark" option of Shift for LWS will use the appropriate pipeline (7, 8, 9[=8], 10) RSRF file.
Large AARs, with greater than 700 scans, will have the buttons built correctly.
The user may set the parameter !gui_scan_buttons in the
start-up file start_isap.idl to a number greater than the required
number of scans. Likewise, when the user attempts to plot more than 100,000
points on a plot, resetting !gui_cw_max_oplots to a larger value will allow
LWS Filter Profiles have been added to the Smoothing Package:
The purpose here is to allow the user to experiment with the LWS_LW and LWS_SW filter profiles, comparing these, when smoothed against gaussians of a given width, with observed spectral lines, to assess the intrinsic source velocity width.
Filters have been added to the Photometry Package:
MSX Filters: A, B1, B2, C, and D, and 2MASS H, J, and K filters are now available in the photometry package, in addition to the preliminary SIRTF filters.
Improved Documentation for LWS Defringing :
The documentation now discusses masking and extended sources in more detail.
The shifting routine now reports the shift factors.
W/cm^2/micron is now allowed by change units.
