Dear Chandra users near and far,
in this Patriots' Day and Boston Marathon Monday, 20 April 2009,
CIAO 4.1 has been patched to *CIAO 4.1.2*.
This patch includes several *new CIAO tools*. Many *enhancements to
Sherpa*, the modeling and fitting package. And also the first full
installation of the *CIAO software for Solaris 10* (SunOS 5.10, SPARC).
Two new scripts (*ciao_install* (beta) and *check_ciao_caldb*) automate
the installation of CIAO and CALDB and check that CALDB is installed
properly within CIAO.
Full release notes can be found at

For users at CFA:
the patch is already installed on the HEAD-LAN.
To pick up the new software please start "ciao" in a new window.
As always please send questions and requests for enhancements to the CXC
CIAO is a collaborative effort between the SAO/CXC Science Data
Systems, the SAO/CXC Data Systems, and MIT/CXC personnel.
