     8== Important notice regarding the future of PyFITS == 
     9 
     10All of the functionality of PyFITS is now available in [http://www.astropy.org Astropy] as the [http://docs.astropy.org/en/stable/io/fits/index.html astropy.io.fits] package, which is now publicly available. 
     11Although we will continue to release PyFITS separately in the short term, including any critical bug fixes, we will eventually stop releasing new versions of PyFITS as a stand-alone product.  The exact timing of when we will discontinue new 
     12PyFITS releases is not yet settled, but users should not expect PyFITS releases to extend much past early 2014.  Users of PyFITS should plan to make suitable changes to support the transition to Astropy on such a timescale.  For the vast majority 
     13of users this transition is mainly a matter of changing the import statements in their code--all APIs are otherwise identical to PyFITS.  STScI will continue to provide support for questions related to PyFITS and to the new `astropy.io.fits` package in Astropy.
