What’s new?#

For Gammapy v0.12 we did our homework, cleaned up the basement and emptied the trash bin. It is a maintenance release that does not introduce many new features, but where we have put a lot of effort into integrating the gammapy.spectrum submodule into the datasets framework we introduced in the previous Gammapy version. For this we replaced the former SpectrumObservation class by a new SpectrumDatasetOnOff class, which now works with the general Fit and Datasets objects in gammapy.utils.fitting. This also enabled us to remove the SpectrumObservationList and SpectrumFit classes. We adapted the SpectrumExtraction class accordingly. We also refactored the NDData class to use MapAxis to handle the data axes. This affects the CountsSpectrum and the IRF classes in gammapy.irf.

In addition we changed the FluxPointsEstimator to work with the new SpectrumDatasetOnOff as well as the MapDataset. Now it is possible to compute flux points for 1D as well 3D data with a uniform API. We added a new NaimaModel wrapper class (https://naima.readthedocs.io/), which allows you to fit true physical, spectral models directly to counts based gamma-ray data. To improve the fit convergence of the SkyDisk and SkyEllipse models we introduced a new parameter defining the slope of the edge of these models.

If you would like to know how to adapt your old spectral analysis scripts to Gammapy v0.12, please checkout the updated tutorial notebooks and get in contact with us anytime if you need help.
