A new version of ESO's pipeline reduction environment (Reflex 2.4) was made available on 6 May 2013. Reflex allows easy and intuitive execution of reduction pipelines, including interactive inspection of intermediate results and tuning of pipeline parameters. The new version includes improvements to the interactive GUIs, bug fixes, and significant improvements to some of the supported pipelines.
Currently, Reflex workflows are available for:
- UVES point source echelle data and FLAMES-UVES;
- FORS2 LSS/MOS/MXU modes;
- VIMOS MOS and IFU;
- X-shooter slit data.
In addition, there is a template workflow which can aid users in creating their own workflows. Workflows for additional instruments will be added later this year.
