The Chandra X-Ray Center has introduced version 3.2.4 of the Chandra
Calibration Database (CALDB) as of 07 November 2006 to the public. The
upgrade will be installed in Standard Data Processing as soon as
reasonably possible. See the CalDB Release Notes page under the "SDP

CALDB 3.2.4 is a patch upgrade to CalDB 3.2.3. It includes six new ACIS

T_GAIN epochs to the suite, namely 25 (Nov 2005 - Jan 2006) and 26 (Feb
2006 - Apr 2006).
