The 2014A version of the Gemini Observing Tool is now available for download.
This is a required update which includes significant changes. Please see the quick-start guide in the download directory and the "Getting Started" video tutorial.
We recommend that everyone download their programs from scratch from the ODBs rather than import from XML.
Known bugs (and workarounds, where possible) in the Observing Tool are described here. If you find a new problem, please submit the information via the Gemini HelpDesk and include any stack trace (by default Windows does not give a stack trace).

Access to the Gemini Observing Databases (ODBs) is controlled by requesting authenication keys for each instance of the OT that you use. Once an OT has a key it does not need to be entered again unless the key is deleted or reset or the OT is updated. Keys are managed with the Keychain Manager that is accessed from the "Manage Keys..." button OT on the welcome screen and the Open Program dialog or by selecting Edit...Manage Keys... in the Science Program Editor.
