||The NIRCam Team has identified a number of dark current reference files currently in CRDS which correspond to unsupported observing modes. While it is not vital, they feel it would be prudent to remove these entries from the rmap in order to prevent future confusion. Often, existing reference files are used as templates for new reference files, so it would save work later to have these files removed now. See JIRA issue CRDS-473 for more details.
||The flags in these mask reference files largely match those in previously delivered files, except that in these files, we have corrected an error in the DQ DEF where bit 14 was assigned to multiple mnemonics. We have also disentangled the RC and WEIRD flags, which were both set to use bit 14, so that the RC flags are not thrown out when the file is read in using jwst datamodels. Pixels previously flagged as WEIRD have been reflagged as NONLINEAR. Pixels previously flagged as NOISY have been reflagged with UNRELIABLE_SLOPE. The WEIRD and NOISY definitions have been removed from DQ_DEF in order to conform to the more strict data quality checks to be implemented in the datamodels. We have also fixed the DQ values of some pixels which had impossibly high values in the previous version of these files.
||The FULLP aperture has recently been added to the list of available apertures for NIRCam and needs to be added to the appropriate dark reference file entries in the NIRCam dark rmap. These files are jwst_nircam_dark_0236.fits jwst_nircam_dark_0233.fits jwst_nircam_dark_0232.fits jwst_nircam_dark_0235.fits .
||Updated MIRI and NIRSPec apcorr rmaps to remove unique_rowkeys because this information is no longer needed.
