Release of the new version (3XMM-DR5) of the XMM-Newton Serendipitious source catalogue:

The first incremental release of the 3XMM catalogue, 3XMM-DR5, was made public in April 2015 (Rosen et al., 2015; http://arxiv.org/abs/1504.07051).  3XMM-DR5, which supersedes the previous release, 3XMM-DR4, contains 565962 detections arising from 396910 unique sources drawn from 7781 XMM observations.  The incremental catalogue covers around 880 square degrees of sky, taking account of overlaps between observations.
