An update to the Swift software is now available for download.

March 7, 2007

A Swift software update (version 2.6.1) has been released as part of the HEAsoft version 6.2. This is just an incremental update for Swift, not a major new release. The tools swifttime, barycorr, and uvotmag were updated, as well as swiftversion - see the release notes below for details. Also note that xpsec, ximage, and other HEAsoft packages received updates that may be of value to Swift users. (The impetus for the release was new Suzaku software.)
