Hi Folks,

I just put up a Windows updater with new versions of Athena and
Artemis which (should / seems to) fix the "Athena is stuck" problems
seen be various people.  Details on what else changed are below.

All windows users with Ifeffit 1.2.10 and 1.2.11 should install this
update.  If you're still using an older version, beware that this
update will be binary incompatible with that version, and you should
upgrade to 1.2.11 before installing this update.

If you've been having troubles with Athena/Artemis "getting stuck" and
these persist after installing this update, please let us know!!


This update to Ifeffit 1.2.11 for Windows corrects several problems
with the prior release related to building the Athena et al
executables against the wrong version of the Ifeffit library.  This
update includes newly rebuilt executables for Athena, Artemis,
Hephaestus, and Atoms.

Additionally, the following features have been added to Athena:

  1. Filename are sorted when importing multiple files.
  2. Corrected a problem related to importing chi(k) data that do not
     start at 0.
  3. Filetype plugins have been added for:
       - SSRL binary files
       - SSRL ASCII files
       - SSRL MicroEXAFS files
       - files from the CLS HXMA beamline
       - files from Photon Factory beamline 12C
