A new version of DRAGONS has been released. This version offers improvements and fixes to the imaging support. New in this version is support for GMOS longslit spectroscopy for quicklook purposes. This new spectroscopy support is not approved for science quality reduction, but can be use for "quicklook" inspection of new data. A quicklook reduction is intended to check the overall quality of the data, such as confirming the presence of the target(s) and whether the expected S/N has been achieved. It is particularly useful for assessing ToO observations quickly. We are continuing to develop DRAGONS and the next major release will support science-quality reduction of GMOS longslit data, with optional interactive tools for key reduction steps as well as additional routines such as flagging cosmic rays and performing the slit function correction.
