Additional Info XGterm: use xgterm instead of xterm as the terminal where to start IRAF. As a matter of fact, IRAF only works correctly in a XGterm terminal.

XImtool: the major change is the support of TrueColor visuals (so-called '24-bit displays'). However, XImtool should still considered as a beta-release (though stable enough for general usage), and may still present some rough edges or unexpected behaviors, depending on the specific platform (for instance here under Fedora-8, it acts a little funny when resizing the XImtool window).
