This webinar covers the most important improvements in SPIRE data processing coming with the recent HIPE 13 release. After introductory presentations, there will be time for an extended question-and-answer session for any issues that participants would like to bring up.

Highlights include a new multi-pass photometer pipeline for improved deglitching and more accurate beam profiles, and for the spectrometer, significantly better spectra due to an updated linearization correction as well as a more user friendly product structure inside observation contexts, etc.
