                            RELEASE NOTES FOR HEASOFT 6.11.1
                                     November 22, 2011
    ********************************************************************************
    
    The HEASoft 6.11.1 release is primarily driven by updates to the Suzaku
    mission software, but also includes an update to the Ximage utility
    which has been revised to mirror the current development version in
    use at the HEASARC.
    
    As before, configuration-related changes thoughout the package means that
    users who already have HEASoft v6.x.x installed will need to completely
    replace their software installation; there is no clean way to simply
    overlay this new release or to update an existing installation.
