2. "Things to Watch Out For" page

We have started a new page


This includes current status of V2 processing and the production of
the associated background files, calibration problems that have
recently surfaced, hints on how best to run Suzaku specific software,
and important changes in data analysis procedure from V1 to V2.

We plan to keep this page up-to-date with latest developments,
so we encourage all users to check this page often.

3. Release of PIN non X-ray background (NXB) files

The HXD team is making final checks of a new set of PIN NXB files
corresponding to V2.x processing.  The initial release (covering
observations up to 2007 August) is planned on or before Monday,
Sep 24.  Subsequently, the HXD team plans to release NXB files
regularly for recent observations.  Please check the Suzaku GOF
and ISAS/JAXA Suzaku home pages for the latest status.
