Current Status of ESO - Speech to the Staff at the ESO Garching Headquarters on December 6, 1994

Abstract:
The past year saw a number of important developments in and around ESO. Considering all of these together makes me feel confident about the future of this organization and our ability to successfully complete the current major task, the VLT project. I here summarize the most important issues. It is obvious that with ESO's many simultaneous and quite diverse undertakings, we are stronger in certain areas than in others. While we have done quite well in some, we must try to improve our performance in others.

Abstract:
The new 94NOV release of ESOMIDAS will contain several improvements and new features in the core system as well as in the application areas. In this article you will find a summary of the most interesting new ones. More detailed descriptions can be found in the recent ESO-MIOAS Courier (October 1994). The new release has been tested on a variety of platforms: SUN/SunOS 4.1.n and SUN/Solaris 2.3, HP/HP-UX, SG/IRIX, IBM/AIX, VAXNMS, DEC/OSF1, DEC/Ultrix, VAX/Open-VMS and VAXNMS, and PC/Linux. At the time this Messenger is distributed, the official 94NOV version will be released and all registered sites informed about its availability in the 'midas' ftp account. In order to optimize the distribution of this new release we request that MIDAS sites with Internet connectivity retrieve it from the 'midas' ftp account. Sites with no connectivity can obtain the new release on magnetic media after having sent a completed ESO-MIDAS Request Form to the MIDAS Group (midas@eso.org).
