An upgrade to IRAF V2.11.3 for all SunOS and Solaris platforms is now available on iraf.noao.edu in the /iraf/v211/SSOL directory. Both the full distribution and patches for older V2.11.1 and V2.11.2 systems are available. See the README file in the distribution directory for details. ftp://iraf.noao.edu/iraf/v211/SSOL/README Updates for the remaining Unix workstation platforms (HP/UX, SGI IRIX, Compaq / Digital Unix, IBM AIX, OpenVMS) have in most cases already been built, and will be released in a few days following testing. The new release contains many new features and bug fixes, and has been tested for Y2K compliance. Any old IRAF installations will need to be updated to the new release to fix Y2K-related IRAF bugs and add support for the revised FITS DATE-OBS Y2K-compliant date and time keyword.
