New issues from Xspec 12.11.1
List of currently outstanding issues.
Note!!: A bug in the heasp library is causing plotting problems in XSPEC for cases where EBOUNDS energies are grouped and listed in descending order of energy (as often used for gratings). The patch fix for this is not currently integrated into the XSPEC patch fixes below. But it is available separately and can be easily applied FROM HERE.
Latest update 12.11.1d (Feb 24, 2021)
Requires patch installer v4.13
To apply patches, you'll need to have downloaded and already built the source code distribution of XSPEC. For details about the patch installer including options available with the latest v4.13, click here. Otherwise, follow the instructions below.
Note: This assumes you have already set your HEADAS environment variables with the headas-init script, as you would if you were running XSPEC.
To make sure your XSPEC installation is up to date with ALL listed patches:
The script should detect which patches you've installed previously, copy the new code files to the necessary directories, determine whether complete or only partial rebuilds are necessary, and finally perform the rebuilds. Numbers listed in red indicate that the patch modifies the interface to one or more of XSPEC's libraries. These patches will generally cause longer rebuilds. If you have a local model library, it is recommended (though not always necessary) that you rebuild it with initpackage after applying red patches.
