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

Aspro updated to Period 87 values 
As the title says, Aspro (one should say 'old Aspro', since Aspro2 is now in prerelease) has been updated to cope with baselines, limiting magnitudes, etc... described in the ESO call for Proposal for Period 87. It retains however the previous setups back to period 84.

amdlib V3 released 
Dear colleagues,

On behalf of the JMMC AMBER data reduction working group, I am pleased to announce the release of the version 3.0 of the AMBER data processing package.

You can find it on the JMMC website at: http://www.jmmc.fr/amberdrs together with an installation guide, a user's manual and demo data/script.

This release contains major modifications of the C-library which implements the AMBER optimized data reduction by Chelli, Hernandez Utrera, and Duvert (2009, A&A 502, 705). The release notes are available at this address:
http://www-laog.obs.ujf-grenoble.fr/twi ... _wrt_versi

The Yorick interface has evolved to be more user-friendly with a default data processing procedure. The User's Manual has been updated and contains most of the information needed by beginners.

If you have any question related to this AMBER Data Reduction Software release, please contact the JMMC User's Support

We wish you all the best,

F. Malbet, G. Duvert, F. Millour, J.-B. Le Bouquin, G. Mella

Iper: a simple tool to fit OIFITs data with a uniform disk 
During the last IAU conference in August 2009, the Optical and
Infrared Interferometry Commission (C54) raised a few questions
(get the whole story on http://olbin.jpl.nasa.gov/iau/2009/index.html).

One of them was :
"Is there a command line tool to throw at an OIFITS file to do a
simple uniform disk fit?"

Well, now, there is. Just "call Iper"

This simple tool allows you to rapidly see if your set of squared
visibilities is fitted or not by a uniform disk.
