Hi Folks,

I've uploaded source kits for Ifeffit 1.2.11c to the cars.uchicago.edu
and sourceforge.net download sites.

I have a Windows dll made for this bug fix version.  If anyone is
interested, this is currently at

This should be a drop-in replacement for the
IFEFFIT_DIR\bin\ifeffit_12.dll   on your system.
Artemis.exe will not be updated from this dll, as it has this dlls
"compiled in".  Bruce will have to make a new Artemis.exe, and then
we'll make a automatic update.

Sorry for all the trouble,
