The current release of the Science Tools is still v9r15p5, although a new release continues to be anticipated. The only noteworthy item this week is Jim's implementation (reported below under Infrastructure) of the new PSF parametrization by Matthew and Riccardo. This is needed to handle the Pass 7.2 IRFs that will soon be available for testing.
Data products: No new news. The FSSC is proposing some small updates, transparent to users, to be able to handle deliveries of FT1 and LS1 data products with different analysis cuts (e.g., Pass 6 and Pass 7.2) if necessary.
