Hi folks,

I just uploaded source code and a Windows installer for Ifeffit 1.2.11
to SourceForge.  Both are also available for download from the Ifeffit
web site.  Source code packages for my programs (Athena, Artemis,
Hephaestus) can be found at SourceForge or on my website.

Macintosh installer packages will be available soon.

For the windows users, the new installer package has a number of
advantages, including:

  * New compilation of ifeffit, resulting in noticeably faster
    execution compared to the 1.2.10 release
  * Latest versions of SixPack, Athena, Artemis, and Hephaestus
  * Perl 5.8 and PerlApp 7.2 were used to build my programs, solving a
    number of performance issues reported in recent months
  * The Athena User's Guide is included in the package and the html
    version is now used as the internal documentation in Athena

We recommend that all windows users upgrade to the new version.

As always, let us know about any issues, comments, or suggestions that
you might have.  This version was used successfully at the APS XAFS
Summer School last week.  While not an exhaustive testing, it seems to
be a good release so far.
