Changelog

This is the changelog for Gammapy. For now we use a one-line description of every pull request, roughly in chronological order.

We don’t list every pull request. Maintenance and cleanup changes (e.g. to update astropy-helpers or fix the docs build) are not of interest to users and are not listed here.

After the 1.0 release we will keep a more detailed changelog for users.

A complete list of Gammapy contributors is at Contributors.

0.7 (unreleased)

Summary

  • Coming soon (November 2017)
  • 16 contributors (7 new)
  • 7 months of work (from April 28, 2017 to November 2017)
  • 120 pull requests (not all listed below)

What’s new?

  • New sub-package gammapy.maps that features WCS and HEALPix based maps, arbitrary extra axes in addition to the two spatial dimensions (e.g. energy, time or event type). Support for multi-resolution and sparse maps is being added. These new maps classes were implemented based on the experience gained from the existing SkyImage and SkyCube classes as well as the Fermi science tools, Fermipy and pointlike.
  • The long-term plan is to build all analysis on top of gammapy.maps, and to deprecate and remove SkyImage and SkyCube at some point (not now, to be discussed later). gammapy.maps is still under heavy development, especially the interface for coordinates isn’t stable yet, and we plan to exchange the HEALPix library from healpy to astropy-healpix, which will evolve into astropy.healpix, i.e. we avoid an extra dependency, and it is a simple and small package that also supports Windows (healpy doesn’t). So gammapy.maps is not finished / complete / stable yet. But if you’re interested, please try it out and give feedback or ask questions how to do something!
  • Many bug fixes and improvements, ranging from IRF interpolation to spectrum and lightcurve computation. This is mostly driven by user reports and feedback from CTA, HESS, MAGIC and Fermi-LAT analysis (see the list of pull requests below). Please update to the new version and keep filing bug reports and feature requests!
  • A lot of new tutorials were added in the form of Jupyter notebooks. To make the content of the notebooks easier to navigate and search, a rendered static version of the notebooks was integrated in the Sphinx-based documentation (the one you are looking at) at Gammapy tutorial notebooks.
  • Gammapy conda package (and dependencies like Astropy regions, reproject, …) changed from the astropy and openastronomy conda channel to conda-forge, the main community-maintained conda build infrastructure and distribution channel. See installation instructions; in short: conda install gammapy -c conda-forge.
  • We dropped support for Python 3.4. Probably everything still works with Python 3.4, but we don’t test with Python 3.4 anymore in our continuous integration. If you’re on Python 3.4, please update to Python 3.6 (or Python 3.5 if that’s e.g. what your package manager ships).
  • Note that many packages are dropping Python 2 support (now, 10 years after Python 3 was released): Jupyter already did, Astropy will in the next release (but they have the long-term support Astropy 2.0 release), Python / Numpy / Scipy will drop Python 2 support in the coming years. So all Gammapy users are encouraged to change to Python 3.6 now. Let us know if you have any questions or need help making your scripts run with Python 3! In many cases it’s just a matter of making some mechanical changes like putting parentheses for print, because it was changed from a special statement to a normal function in Python 3. We will keep Python 2.7 support for now, the discussion on timescale for dropping that support (and taking advantage of all the nice new Python 3 features and a simpler codebase) can start after the Fermi science tools have added Python 3 support.

0.3 (August 13, 2015)

Summary

  • Released on August 13, 2015 (Gammapy 0.3 on PyPI)
  • 9 contributors (5 new)
  • 4 months of work (from April 13, 2014 to August 13, 2015)
  • 24 pull requests
  • Requires Astropy version 1.0 or later.
  • On-off likelihood spectral analysis was added in gammapy.hspec, contributed by Régis Terrier and Ignasi Reichardt. It will be refactored and is thus not part of the public API.
  • The Gammapy 0.3 release is the basis for an ICRC 2015 poster contribution
