The following notes are a slightly modified version of the news item which accompanied the release of Figaro version 5.4-0 (spring 1999).
The major change in version 5.4-0 is the addition of the application SCLEAN for removing bad lines and pixels from images obtained with the SCUBA instrument on the JCMT. SCLEAN reprises the functionality of the traditional Figaro application CLEAN, but it correctly handles the array of quality flags associated with the data array in SCUBA images. It also provides a new display mode suitable for use with SCUBA data.
In addition a number of bugs have been fixed.
