Version 0.18.2 of the MUSE pipeline and data reduction cookbook have been released, they can be found here. This version is necessary to reduce data taken when temperatures are below approximately 7°C: the recipe muse_flat has problem tracing some of the slices in channel 6. This is a known problem that we are currently working on and likely it will be fixed in the near future, however for the time being to overcome this problem we urge you to follow the recovery procedure described in section 8.2 of the latest Cookbook manual (version 0.18.2).
