Hello all,

Today two new versions of PyFITS were released: 3.0.10 and 3.1.1.  These are 
both bug fix releases without any significant new features.  Many of the bug 
fixes in 3.1.1 were backported to 3.0.10 where applicable for those who have not 
yet upgraded to 3.1.x.  3.0.10 also included some slight tweaks to the header 
interface that should help ease the transition to 3.1.x.

Otherwise most of the issues fixed are rare or minor. The full changelogs for 
both versions can be read here: 

As usual, both new versions are available for download from PyPI:


PyFITS 3.1.1 will likely be the version included in the next release of 
stsci_python as well, barring any major issues that need to be fixed in the 

Let me know if there are any problems,
