        TABLES/STSDAS v3.3 and STSCI_PYTHON v2.0 NOW AVAILABLE

        *******************************************************


The Science Software Branch of the Space Telescope Science Institute
wishes to announce the availability of version 3.3 of the Space
Telescope Science Data Analysis Software (STSDAS).  Concurrent with
the STSDAS release, we have also released v3.3 of the TABLES external
package. Both of these packages are layered upon IRAF as external
packages; it is therefore necessary to obtain and install IRAF
(from http://iraf.noao.edu) before installing TABLES and STSDAS.
STSDAS is linked against libraries in TABLES, so TABLES must be
installed before STSDAS.

STSDAS includes some Python-based tasks; running these requires the
STScI Python Libraries to be installed (all the non-Python tasks
can be used in the traditional way and do not require Python
or the STScI Python libraries). These tasks can only be run from
PyRAF using standard IRAF CL task syntax, or within Python scripts
using Python syntax.

The Science Software Branch of STScI wishes to announce also the
availability of version 2.0 of STSCI_PYTHON. The primary change in
this version is the release of redesigned versions of PyDrizzle
and MultiDrizzle. This is the version of Multidrizzle used by the
HST ACS pipeline. This release does not include a new version of
PyRAF. Use of the Python tasks requires upgrading to this version
of STSCI_PYTHON.
