eXsas, the Extended Scientific Analysis System, is a large software package, based on the ESO-MIDAS image processing system, for interactive analysis of X-ray and XUV data from the ROSAT satellite. A multitude of typical apolications and utilities in the areas of data preparation, correction of instrucmental effects, spatial, spectral and timing analysis have been implemented in a coherent context. The package is installed in different UNIX flavours all over the world. Present activities concentrate on reconfiguring eXsas by adapting to the FITSIO/FTOOLS standards. This will facilitate its usage for future X-ray missions (ABRIXAS, XMM) and the possibility to include public FTOOLS software in a compatible manner.
