What's New for HIPE 15.x

PDF Version Click here

Help Interested in what's new for other versions of HIPE? See this page for links to all the What's New documents from HIPE 4.0 onwards.
See also the HIPE known issues and the Data products known issues pages for last-minute information on known problems.


Highlights

Core

  • The FitsArchive task will now write FITS files with header entries organised in categories. See the Data input-output section below for more details.
  • A new Useful script named Astrometry Thermoelastic Drift Correction has been introduced, allowing to perform a tentative astrometry correction due to a thermoelastic drift.
HIFI
  • the task convertK2Jy has been upgraded in order to take as a new input parameter a model for the source brightness distribution shape
  • a new task identifyLinesCatalog has been introduced, allowing to assign spectral species and transitions to a catalogue of spectral features passed as input
  • The documentation has been revised to ensure a consolidated and conherent set of legacy manuals
  • The masking of lines has been improved in the task mkRms

Editors & Viewers

  • Editor for XML / HTML files added.
  • Internal browser for HTML files provided.
  • External browser for HTML files available through Open With.

Console

Improved auto-completion mechanism.

Plug-ins

  • The plug-ins dialogue has been made more user friendly.
  • Plug-ins can not only add sub-panels in the Variables view, but also remove existing ones.

Tasks

  • The automatic multiple output task checker that was introduced with the transition from HIPE 12.0 to HIPE 13.0 has been removed.
  • openVariable is able to open a variable directly, in addition to opening it by name. For example:

p = Product()
openVariable("p")  # already available with previous versions of HIPE
openVariable(p)    # also available since HIPE 15.0

Quality control

Systematic product generation

Data input-output

The FitsArchive task has been upgraded in order to re-organise keywords in the products FITS headers in a much more structured fashion. Keywords will not be grouped and ordered according to categories, in the same spirit as what was done e.g. for products from the Hubble Space Telescope or Spitzer. The following snapshots illustrate this re-structuration for the first part of a given FITS header in one HIFI product. The left image shows the product header as of 14.1.0. The right image shows the product header that would be obtained by saving with the FitsArchive task under 15.

Spectrum tasks (HIFI specifics)

The task mkRms has been improved in order to better handle line masking when computing the statistics in spectra containing spectral lines. This will lead to very slight differences with the noise estimates reported in the pipeline products from 14.1.

On top of that, the task convertK2Jy has been upgraded so that it can take as source model an input file in the form of an image. This allows more complex and ad hoc source filling factor estimate in case the Gaussian or Disk approximation are not appropriate. See the Data Reduction Guide and task URM for more details.

HiClass export tool

The useful script explaining how to export HIFI data into Class with the hiClass task (SaveObsContextToClass.py) has been removed in 15. This is because HIFI FITS files as processed by HIPE 12 and later can now be directly read by Class, if one uses a Gildas installation later than October 2015 - see the following Manual. For HCSS products older than HIPE 12, we recommend to either use more recent products, or fall back on the hiClass export, using the documentation of the task as provided in its URM.
