FITSIO status = 202: keyword not found in header *** ERROR: *** Unable to get the value of `SUM_2X2' in /data/acisf04425_000N003_evt1.fits

Bugs fixed in CIAO 4.14
The following is a list of bugs that were fixed in the CIAO 4.14 software release.
Failure to include "frame store shadow" bad pixels
Incorrect Vignetting calibrations
The azimuthal angle (angle measured around the optical axis) used to compute the vignetting correction component of the effective area is incorrect. The vignetting correction varies azimuthally about the optical axis. The amplitude of the variation is a function of off-axis angle and is energy dependent; but typically varies up to a few percent.
