03/31/23   Modify JEOL MEC EDS interface to close/re-open interface if closed because user switched to the
      JEOL Imaging window.

03/29/23   Fix sulfur-oxygen bug for Fanal code.
v. 13.2.8

02/17/23   Modify Thermo code to add 2nd attempt for socket time out errors (Boroughs).

02/11/23   Fix bug in Locock amphibole and garnet output if using duplicate elements in aggregate mode (Locock).
v. 13.2.6
      Modify Alternative Zbar output in Standard.

02/09/23   Minor tweaks to EDS and imaging code (Boroughs).

02/03/23   Bump version to force update to CalcZAF for changes in ZAFSetZAF code.
v. 13.2.5

01/30/23   Minor improvements to EDS OEM export features (von der Handt).

01/23/23   Modify update dead time code (again!).  Disable Integrate button in Model Backgrounds if more than one wavescan
      is loaded.
      
      Fix coating thickness bug in ZAFSetZAF if passed sample is a standard (Starykh).

Added Thermo support files for spectrum image (SI) file access to ProbeForEPMA.msi installer (v.10.1.6).

Everyone who wants to use the new Hyper-Imaging feature in CalcImage, as described here:

https://probesoftware.com/smf/index.php?topic=83.0

will need to run the ProbeForEPMA.msi installer again (no need to un-install PFE first).

The ProbeforEPMA.msi installer now automatically installs the Thermo spectrum Image (SI) DLLs for the CalcImage "Hyper-Imaging" feature, which automatically integrates WDS quantitative x-ray maps with EDS (hyper-cube) spectrum images.

Apologies for attaching a brochure from the EMAS 2013 meeting to this post, but it does already provide a nice overview of these new CalcImage features- and I'm just too lazy to re-format it!   :D

I should add, though current users of Probe for EPMA already know, all users may obtain new features for free, by simply clicking the Help | Update Probe for EPMA menu!  8)

I should have done this a long time ago, but the latest v. 10.2.4 now automatically loads all EDS spectra that are associated with standard samples if you select to have standard intensities loaded when performing a Load File Setup in Probe for EPMA.

Add ImageShiftPresent and ImageShiftType keywords to INI file.

For JEOL 8900/8200/8500 and Cameca SX100/SXFive this keyword will default to true, but for the 8230/8530 the keyword has to be added and edited manually in the [hardware] section of the Probewin.ini file.

Just wondering if any 8230/8530 operators have edited their Probewin.ini file and tested this set image shift code for the new JEOL instruments that Philippe Pinard sent us.

No bump in the version number, but the latest v. 10.3.3 now has modified the TDI acquisition code for combined condition samples. This should significantly reduce the delay between the Faraday cup out and the TDI counting start.

Try a TDI acquisition with a combined condition sample and let me know what you think!

A nice simple question for you:

will PFE run on windows 8?
