PSM release 1.7.1

About this version

This version corrects a few minor bugs in some of the PSM tools. The SZ section has been completed in the user manual. The biggest change is in the templates used to simulate free-free, spinning dust and synchrotron, which have been revised to remove aliasing bumps due to undersampling at very high ell. Now the generation of small scales seems to be working fine.

Some of the loose ends of v1.7.0-beta remain:

DateBug or issueSolutionDownload patch
19 September 2011 Small scales are not generated for spinning dust if SPINDUST_EMISSION_LAW is dl98_composition. Use SPINDUST_EMISSION_LAW = dl98, or use next releases.
20 September 2011 For some cases of LMAX and NSIDE, lensing with ilens ('CMB_LENSING = ilens') does not work. Will be fixed in next releases. Use 'CMB_LENSING = cl' or 'CMB_LENSING = none'
28 September 2011 The PSM run fails if the parameter 'OBS_TASK' is not set in the configuration file (no valid default value). Always define 'OBS_TASK' ('new', 'update' or 'none').
29 September 2011 There is a memory leak in band integration, that causes the PSM eventually to fill the available memory for large scale simulations. Replace the "" file in "Soft/observation/skyobs/". v1.26
08 May 2012 Bug in WMAP sources (excessive flux due to units error for sources not detected in K band) Replace the "" file in "Soft/skymodel/ps/". v1.16
