Folks,
 
I have released R1-3 of the enhanced EPICS support for the Pilatus detector.
 
>From the release notes:

*	Added new acquire mode, MultipleTrigger. This mode requires the firmware version that Dectris released in late 2007 (version 1215?). Multiple trigger mode takes one exposure of the programmed exposure time on each falling edge of the external trigger input signal. 
*	Added new PV, ThresholdEnergy, to control the energy threshold of the Pilatus. Being able to set this value from EPICS means that there is no longer any need to run TVX, everything can be done through EPICS. 
*	Added EPICS sscan records to allow the EPICS IOC to scan EPICS PVs. In particular this is very useful for scanning the ThesholdEnergy PV to make sure that it is set correctly for the energy of the x-rays in use. 
*	Changed the prefix of PVs in the example IOC from GSE-PILATUS1: to PILATUS:. 
*	Fixed spelling of ReadTiffTimeout in pilatusROIDoc.html. 
*	Changes in the camserver protocol required the following changes: 

	*	Changed all of the response numbers on expected responses (e.g.14 OK becomes 15 OK). 
	*	Changed the white space in many of the expected responses. 
	*	Changed the input terminator from \n\030 to \030. 

*	Force NExposures (number of exposures per frame) to be 1 in all modes except External Enable. 
*	Released an enhanced version of the IDL epics_image_display source code and .sav file for the IDL Virtual Machine. The new version preserves zoom and intensity scaling when new images are displayed, and adds new controls for autoscaling, zoom, and display direction. It can be obtained in the GSECARS imaging software. <http://cars.uchicago.edu/software/IDL/imaging.html>
