Version 2.1
January 2005
Improvements were made to the graphing procedure.
Version 2.0
May 2003
Improvements were made to the values for the medium-Z soft X-ray edges addressing convergence issues of earlier work. Additional features that were added include data output: for compounds, for linear attenuation coefficients, and for user-defined densities. An additional data output format was added to address the Section 508 accessibility requirements.
