I just updated the source code tarball and the windows executable for
Athena.  I added several features last week while I was at the
synchrotron and wanted to get them out there.

New features include:

  1.  Energy calibration using the mouse.  See the end of the Group
  2.  Data smoothing.  The Fourier filter smoothing is flaky and
      smoothing is a suspicious thing to do in any case.  Take this
      feature with a grain of salt.
  3.  Save many marked groups as columns in a single data file.  See
      the File menu.  This is handy for exporting much data from
      Athena to a plotting program
  4.  Fixed a bug whereby the pre-edge line energy range was not being
  5.  Athena will now tell you how many spline knots it intends to
      use.  See the Data menu.

Thanks to Shelly Kelly for the pre-edge bug and thanks to Dean
Hesterberg, Suzanne whose-last-name-I-can't-remember, Kumi Pandya, and
Mali Balasubramanian for several good suggestions.

There are some new notes on the download page for Windows 9x/ME users
and a new page about how to write a good bug report. Check 'em out!
