From now, you can get JAR files if you can't run JMMC application with java web start, but you will have to fill the form so we can track and notify users that could run bugged applications.

CDS Outage 
Dear all,

As posted today on the CDS RSS feed, they encounter some technical issues preventing them to provide SIMBAD and Vizier services as usual.

As SearchCal, and somewhat ASPRO, rely on those services, we are not able to fulfill queries for the time being.

Rest assured the (great) CDS team is doing all its best to get back up !

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Pre release of the Aspro2 
Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the availability on the JMMC webpage of a pre-release version of Aspro2, our new observation preparation software.

Aspro2 provides the user with a highly dynamic graphical interface, does not depend on any network connection to work, and has sufficient new interesting features (such as creating Observing Blocks for VLTI and CHARA, or its ability to save/restore your work in progress), that we consider it would be useful to share it with you, even if it is still a work in progress.

A feature comparison between Aspro software versions is also available on the JMMC webpage to see main differences : for example, Aspro 2 does not have a visibility explorer yet.

As usual, we will be more than happy to get comments and/or bugs, especially through the new feedback mechanism present in Aspro2.

Best regards,

On the behalf of the JMMC Aspro Group,
Gilles Duvert & Laurent Bourgès
