Hello WS users, The DMC has updated the fdsn-event service to version 1.0.4. In this minor revision we fixed a bug related to the generated xml where element <preferredOriginID> was dropped when input parameter includeallorigins=true. This release should be backwards compatible with all request tools. regards, IRIS DMC web services team

Hello web service users, We have updated our FDSN station metadata service to fix a minor bug: http://www.service.iris.edu/fdsnws/station/1/ Returned results were improperly limited to stations that belong to a virtual network (most do), now all stations are included in the search. Because most stations belong to at least one virtual network, the impact of this bug was expected to be minor and the fix should not affect the general use of this service. regards, Web services team
