An update to the Swift software is now available for download.
A Swift software update (version 2.6.1) has been released as part of
the HEAsoft version 6.2. This is just an incremental update for Swift,
not a major new release. The tools swifttime, barycorr, and uvotmag
were updated, as well as swiftversion - see the release notes below
for details. Also note that xpsec, ximage, and other HEAsoft packages
received updates that may be of value to Swift users. (The impetus for
the release was new Suzaku software.)
