                   - SAS 5.2.0 RELEASED
Dear Colleagues,

version 5.2.0 of the XMM-Newton Science Analysis System was released
20 September 2001. For download instructions see:


Version 5.2.0 of the SAS is available in binary form for the following

  Solaris 2.6 and 2.7
  Tru64 Unix (formerly known as Digital Unix)
  RedHat 6.2 (*)
  SuSE 7.0

(*) Libraries are available that allow one to use this binary
    distribution on most Linux flavors.

Among others, version 5.2.0 includes:

 . all the changes made in SAS versions 5.1.1 to 5.1.4. These SAS
   versions were not made public but were used in the SSC
   pipeline. Details of the SSC pipeline configuration can be found at
   http://xmmssc-www.star.le.ac.uk/pipeview/prod/ .

 . rgsrmfgen: the coding error in the generation of the RGS response
   (see XMM-NEWTON NEWS #6) has been rectified.

 . rgsevconvert: this new task can be used to convert RGS event lists
   created with SAS versions 5.0.0 and 5.0.3 to a format suitable for
   processing with RGS tasks in versions 5.1.0 and 5.2.0. Details of
   the procedure to follow for the conversion are given at 
   http://xmm.vilspa.esa.es/sas/documentation/watchout . 

For the detailed list of changes, please refer to the main SAS web

With best regards,

The XMM-Newton SOC.
