(07 Apr 2020)Incorrect NUMGRP and NUMELT keywords
The addresp tool is not updating the NUMGRP nor the NUMELT keywords in the output file to match the actual values in the MATRIX's N_GRP and N_CHAN columns. It is simply copying those keywords from the 1st file to the output file. These incorrect values have shown to cause problems with XSPEC v 12.11.0.
Incorrect RSP RMFs
RSP RMFs, those that are supposed to include the ARF, are incorrect. Users should not use type=rsp.
Bad warning when directory does not exist
The tool will return an unhelpful error message
# addresp (CIAO): ERROR: failed to ariet ARF ->dm: [ftDatasetCreate]: FITS error 105
when the output file cannot be created because the directory does not exist.

The following is a list of bugs that were fixed in the CIAO 4.12 software release.
Crash when trying to combine certain XMM response files
