The frmedian, frmode, rmedian, and rmode tasks are new. Fmedian, fmode, median, and mode are enhanced versions of the corresponding tasks in the images packages.

The major new capabilities of the package are the ability to: 1) ring median filter a list of images using a sliding circular / elliptical or annular circular / elliptical window, and to 2) set minimum and maximum good data value parameters for the median / modal filters.

These tasks are are being made available at user request prior to their distribution as part of the IRAF 2.11 core system. Please send any questions, comments, or problem reports to davis@noao.edu or iraf@noao.edu. The package retrieval and installation instructions are available in the readme file.
