Second is the inclusion of Chandra Source Catalog 1.1 footprints and links within the ESASky interface. Third is the release of version 3.0 of Iris, which is a graphical user interface application allowing analysis of spectral energy distribution data. Last is the announcement of the meeting "From Chandra to Lynx: Taking the Sharpest X-ray Vision Fainter and Farther", taking place Aug 8-10.
