990914-jer:
 
   - The preprint of the A&A publication
           The ROSAT All-Sky Survey Bright Source Catalogue
     is now available.


990819-jer:
 
   - Added background map in FITS format
 
 
990728-jer:
 
   - Released correlation catalogue 1RXSC (available in ftp area).
   - Transferred number of identification candidates from the
       correlation catalogue 1RXSC to the 1RXS main catalogue.
 
 
990722-jer:
 
   - Removed 5 duplicates from field 33028008.
   - Corrected 13 source names in field 33028008.
 
 
990615-jer:
 
   - Corrected sign error for source 33020048_0000:
       old entry:  1RXS J181545.4+164043  273.93958  16.67861 ...
       new entry:  1RXS J181545.4-164043  273.93958 -16.67861 ...

       BTW:  dec = -16.67861 deg would translate to -16d40m42.996s,
             and thus the source name should be 1RXS J181545.4-164042;
             however, the full precision information is
             dec = -16.6786111... deg, which translates to -16d40m43.000s,
             and thus the source name 1RXS J181545.4-164043 is correct.

 
990610-jer:
 
   - Added correlation catalogue (access information; format description)
   - Added the final RBSC paper
 
970121-jer:
 
   - Two publications have been released.
 
960923-jer:
 
   - 1RXS All-Sky Maps have been added.
 
960812-jer:
 
   - The description of srcl has been improved in the
     catalogue format description.
 
960729-jer:
 
   - An inconsistency in the format of the ASCII dump of the RASS-BSC 
     (file rass-bsc-1rxs.cat.gz in the WWW and anonymous FTP area)
     has been fixed:
        In the old version of the ASCII dump, the flags 'v.'
     (columns 56 and 57) were set to 'FF' (false) instead of '..' (not defined)
     in 49 cases.
 
960719-jer:

960715-jer:
 
   - An inconsistency in the format of the ASCII dump of the RASS-BSC

     has been fixed:
        In the old version of the ASCII dump, the entry for the extraction 
     radius was erroneously shifted to the left by 1 character
     in 198 cases.
 
960619-all:
 
   - The ROSAT All-Sky Survey Bright Source Catalogue 
     was announced via IAU Circular 6420.
