A new release of the Montage toolkit (v3.3) is now available for download. Version 3.3 is a major upgrade to Montage. It offers the following important improvements:

  • Increased HDU support for multi-part image files.

  1. Great news! I’m glad to hear about the error message updates in particular. I’m sure I’ll be testing the new MPI features shortly.
