VOPlot v1.8 Beta 
VOPlot v1.8Beta includes many enhancements and bug fixes. To name a few v1.8Beta supports multi-grid plots for 2D Scatter-Plot which allows the user to have multiple plots having grid size from 1x1 to 3x3 in a single window. Paginated view is added to see data in tabular format which allows user to navigate systematically. Provision to label Lat/Long lines is also added. Users can now plot a cumulative histogram for all histogram types. VOPlot 1.8Beta shows the metadata of a FITS file instantaneously while the actual loading happens in background. VOPlot v1.8Beta also provides better handling of "faulty data" while parsing an ASCII file.

Biography:

He was born October 25, 1940 in Danilche village of the Rogatyn district of the Stanislav region (since November 9, 1962, Ivano-Frankivsk region) of Ukrainian SSR.

In 1960 - 1962 he as an astronomer-observer in the Poltava gravimetric observatory and at the same time was a postgraduate student of the correspondence course of the P.K. Sternberg State Astronomical Institute of M. V. Lomonosov Moscow State University.

During 1962 - 1965 he studied at the postgraduate study at the Main Astronomical Observatory (MAO) in Kyiv. In the same 1965 he defended his Ph.D. thesis "Analysis of non-polar changes in latitude", P.K. Sternberg State Astronomical Institute of M. V.
