Changes between HIPE 6.0.3 and 6.1

Core system

  • Fixed a memory leak when opening and closing a window, such as an image display.
  • Added warning for extra dashes inserted in PDF manuals.
  • Updated the fitBaseline and smoothBaseline sections of the Data Analysis Guide.
  • Fixed a problem that would prevent Spectrum Explorer from displaying HIFI Level 1 spectra.


  • Fixed a wrong default parameter for the mkOffSmooth task.
  • Fixed inaccuracies in the algorithm for WBS frequency calibration using the HRS
  • Added calibration tables smoothOffWidth-H and smoothOffWidth-V with best values to use for the mkOffSmooth task.
  • Fixed a plotting problem that would cause some FitHifiFringe masks to be displaced from bright lines.
  • Fixed an error that occurred when applying PlotHifiSpectrum or PlotListOfSpectra directly to level0 WBS data,
  • The HRS is now always processed to Level 0.5 if needed for WBS frequency calibration.
  • Fixed a problem in Level0Plugin that would prevent the pipeline from quickly failing for observations with no data.
  • Added to the HIFI User's Manual information on setting HSA username/password properties in HIPE.


  • Fixed a problem that would cause the NAIFID of solar system objects to disappear from the metadata.
  • Updated calibration files to fix an offset between blue and red spectrometer coordinates.
  • Reduced the disk space needed to run the pacsphoto_pipeline.py and pacsspectro_pipeline.py scripts.
  • Fixed a problem with selectSlices that would cause some tasks of the spectrometer pipeline to fail.
  • Improved the L2_scanMapPhotProject.py and L1_scanMapPhotProject.py scripts, with changes affecting filtering size, masking and deglitching.
  • Updated slicedPlotPointing to work with unchopped data.
  • Status item GratingCycle now created for chopped and unchopped modes.
  • Fixed a problem that would cause filterOnScanSpeed to ignore the speed thresholds set by lowScanSpeed and highScanSpeed.


  • Many updates to the Merging_pipeline.py script.
