|Improvements were made to the graphing procedure.|
|Installation documentation information supplied.|
|Mislabeled column headings were fixed, and units were added to the spreadsheet (array) output pages.|
|On ESTAR, when additional energies are added, the standard grid is restricted to an energy range whose calculations result in less uncertainty. Also, on additional energies, data is rounded to 4 significant figures instead of 5 as was done previously. Note: the data is only accurate to 3 significant figures, though 4 may be useful for interpolation. On ESTAR, ASTAR, and PSTAR, energies are now displayed in exponential form. On ESTAR, the density effect parameter is also displayed in exponential form. New option allows downloading output in spreadsheet (array) form. Source code and executables for version 1.2 made available for downloading.|
