[Ifeffit] New source code releases for Atoms and Athena

I just uploaded new source tarballs for Atoms and Athena to my web
For Athena, I corrected two small and somewhat obscure bugs that I
found last week. One had to do with the behaviour of the "fix step"
button and the other with how Cromer-Liberman normalizion parameters
were handled internally.
For Atoms, most of the reason for the new release was to correct
mistakes in the absorption library.
1. The McMaster tables now have a correct entry for the element Re
2. The McMaster tables now corectly handle energy ranges between the
L2 and L3 edges
3. The function that computes the normalization correction has much
more error checking and has a few little bugs corrected. It
should never return a negative normalization correction any more
4. A few small changes to WebAtoms, which also benefits by the items
5. A new item in the TkAtoms File menu -- a submenu labeled "Recent
files". The idea here is that you can easily return to an
atoms.inp file you had been looking at earlier in your TkAtoms
session. As currently implemented it is functional, but behaves
a little oddly. The order of the entries is backwards of what
you may expect (i.e. most recent file is last in the list) and
the list never gets truncated. I got tired of fiddling with it,
so I declared it "functional enough";-)
for the latest.
Next week I hope to build new Windows binaries of all three of my
programs based on Matt's most recent release of Ifeffit, so keep
you eyes on this mailing list for that announcement.
As always, comments, suggestions, feature requests, and bug reports
are very welcome.
