An experimental version of AIPS is being developed by the author with the intent of trying new ideas in several areas. Copies of this version are made available periodically. For interferometric data, there have been significant developments in spectral-line calibration, data editing, wide-field imaging, self-calibration, and analysis of spectral cubes. For single-dish data, there have been improvements in the imaging of ``on-the-fly'' spectral-line data and new programs to analyze and image continuum, beam-switched data. Image display techniques which retain their state information to any other computer running this version have been developed. Results from several of these areas are presented.
