A new release (named DEC96) of the GILDAS software is available. It incorporates a new window-like user interface, on systems supporting Motif. The release is complete for HPUX, AIX and Dec-OSF1 systems. However, the new facilities are not available on SunOS, Solaris, Ultrix and Linux.
The window interface allows SIC-based programs to create user-defined windows to modify SIC variables and activate commands or command procedures. It also provides a more intuitive, self-documented input for GILDAS tasks.
