Does the new version supersede the previous version?: Yes

Nature of problem:
The experimental searches for Higgs bosons have to be compared with theory predictions at a high level of accuracy. Radiative corrections are especially important in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM).

Solution method:
High-precision calculations (mostly based on the Feynman-diagrammatic approach) for various Higgs-boson observables in the MSSM are implemented. The program takes the basic model parameters as input and evaluates many MSSM Higgs-boson observables relevant for experimental Higgs-boson physics.

Reasons for new version:
Existing calculations have been refined (e.g. by the inclusion of complex parameters); many new observables have been implemented.

Summary of revisions:
Input parameters are now allowed to be complex, and non-minimal flavour violation is permitted. Besides the Higgs-boson masses also branching ratios and hadron-collider production cross-sections are calculated.

Restrictions:
Several observables are still missing and have to be implemented.

Running time:
The command-line frontend, which invokes essentially all FeynHiggs functions, takes 200 ms a single point in parameter space On a 3 GHz AMD CPU.
