More new goodies!: DataFerrett update

Announcement from the Census Bureau:

We are happy to announce a new release of DataFerrett on January 27th,

It is now available via a webpage applet at:

This release is largely being done in support of the American Community
Survey (ACS) Summary Files for the 5-Year data which will be available on
January 31st (with 1 and 3 year data forthcoming), and will include
numerous detailed geographies down to the block-group level.

This release includes many new features as well as datasets, and is easier
to update for security purposes, bug fixes and new feature additions. The
new system has enhanced security in place - it is a signed applet meaning
users will have to accept a VeriSign Certificate to use the software.

Note, the old DataFerrett Application accessed via your desktop will no
longer be supported. However, any saved DataFerrett databaskets (.fsf
files) or tables (.ftf files) created using the application or beta version
of the applet will still be accessible for use.

Please direct any inquiries, feedback, or requests for new features to our
team by replying to this email announcement, or you can email us directly
at or call us at 1-866-437-0171.
