Sources for MIDAS 96NOV

Dear Midas users,

In my previous mail announcing the official 96NOV release of MIDAS
an old text in Section 3 slipped in, and stated that:

>   ESO-MIDAS software and documentation is distributed via the 
>   our ftp services only. Only those sites with no access to Internet 
>   may request ESO-MIDAS on a tape and by regular mail, provided an 
>   explicit request has been received, and the site has a User 
>   Agreement.
>   MIDAS 96NOVpl1.0 is available in source code from our "midas" ftp 
>   account"
>   - Ftp host: ftphost.hq.eso.org (
>   - Ftp account: "ftp". Password: "????????"

As you may already know, MIDAS is available under the GNU General Public
Licence since 95NOVpl2.0. Since then we are not requiring anymore the
prior MIDAS User Agreement in order to get access to MIDAS sources. 

Therefore MIDAS sources are publicly available in our anonymous ftp 

   - Ftp host: ftphost.hq.eso.org (
   - Ftp account: "ftp". Password: <Your email address>
   - Directory: /midaspub/96NOV/sources/96NOVpl1.0.tar.Z

Sorry for the confusion,
