Hello Bruce,

thank you for your constant efforts on improving this great analysis
software. I just want to report a few observations on the new versions
of Athena and Artemis. I use Windows 2000, Ifeffit + Update 014.

- The file
still indicates an update level of 012. As discussed before it is easy
to update the windows version by downloading the updater zip-files and
extract them to the program folder.

- The csv-file exported from Athena as two extra commas in the title
lines so that title and data is misaligned.

- When exporting data from Artemis choosing "Save selected group as" the
x-value column is only exported if the original dataset is also selected.

- I was often not able to export data via File | Save Data/Fit/Residual
As | chi(k) (Artemis message below). I figured out, that it works when
the group of the original chi-data is selected in the Data &
Paths-window, but not when Fit or Residual is chosen. Another bug: if
one of the FEFF-paths is selected while exporting via "Save data as"
then the values of the original chi-data will be exported, but the
filename and header will reflect the chosen path. I was initially trying
to export some FEFF-paths using this method and was quite confused that
they all look the same :).
A tip that I can give to other users: it something seems to be wrong
with the exported data, it is always possible to extract the correct
data by saving the project to disc and opening it with an unzip program.
